    Do you prefer hot or cold?

    Rumor has it that many moons ago the military spent millions of dollars trying to put together a psychological profile of the troops to ascertain whether someone would prefer to be assigned to a hot location or a cold location. At some point, someone, probably a low level minion who's pay grade did not justify his intelligence, asked, "why not just ask him?" Apparently, no refund was given by the research facility doing the profile.

    In any case, do you prefer hot or cold? (No in betweens, sorry)

    Me personally, I much prefer hot over cold.

    I’ll take cold any day you can always put on more clothing, hot weather you can only take off so much then you get arrested.

    Having been through both extremes, I'll take cold any day of the week.

    I prefer cold. I am a very hot natured person and you can always layer on clothes, you can only take off so much before you get arrested.

    Now that is funny, I answered without reading all the posts and apparently we think alike. I'd be worried if I were you msgt.

    Cold. Ya can bundle up when ya need to, but you can only take so much off to cool down. Legally that is.

    Dang Paco, didn't see your post before I made mine. Oh well, same thoughts on that one I guess.

    I LOVED the cooler climates when stationed there, but I LOVED it MORE in the warmer latitudes!

    Hot for me.

    COLD any day. At least in cold you can get easily warmed up. Wrap up in warm things...build a quickie fire, body heat etc(which has it's bonuses if it's the right persons body)...

    What do you do if you're stuck in the burning desert? YOU BURN! What are you going to do...build an underground condo and order an AC unit?
