I hate the heat around here, it's 100°F and higher from the middle of June until August (SOMETIMES EVEN SEPTEMBER! It's 101° in SEPTEMBER!!) and the humidity index (whatever that's called, the amount of water in the air) is 90% or more!! That's nearly water!!

So, yeah, when you walk outside, it feels like you are being suffocated. I hate it here so much. I've loved the climates in ALL the other places I've lived (Dubai, Las Cruces, New Mexico and Portage Michigan).

Well, at least the people here are nice. Oh, wait, that was Portage, not here!!

Okay, stepping off the soap box.

To hell with diversity! :P

Don't you think it's a bit boring to live in an area where everyone looks the same? I do.

What's with all these people and their desire to be warm all the time?! It's good to be cold sometimes! picky, picky, picky... :lol:

I've been through too many Massachusetts & Wisconsin winters. I've had enough cold already in my life.
Warm temperatures are more comfortable to me. You don't have to wear as much clothing.

Too hot in Renton, Washington?! :shock: On average, y'all don't even reach 80 during summer!

Even more boring, I think, to live in an area where everyone is the same, at least in the sense of belonging to the majority culture. I study languages to learn about different cultures.

No it's not, he meant Fahrenheit.

The planet can only reach such temperatures in the core of the Antarctica, theoretically speaking, though they have never been recorded. :) (The lowest ever recorded is, funnily, ≈ -88 °C if I remember right.)

When I was a little kid, we stayed with my Aunt, whose husband runs a hotel there. It was quite nice. :)
