    This is what I'm talking about.

    I'm a natural-born reptile, forced to live in arctic conditions (below 70 degrees Fahrenheit more than 2 weeks out of the year). Since birth. This is not fair.

    Fuck all y'all fuckers at the equator. Y'all have it made. The govt may not be the best, but at least you can be comfy when naked throughout the entire year. I'm already dreading the frigid arctic 70's and below this fall and winter. icon_sad.gif

    It could be because of the pretty, snowy scenery.

    Lot of gay dudes here, you know?

    WELL Paul, MAYBE if you found the right guy (singular) to keep you warm at night cold blood wouldn't be an issue...

    Because some of us grew up in the "sultry" South Florida summer steambaths (aka "anything outdoors").

    Gay dudes at the equator are hotter. Your argument is invalid.

    How DID you ever survive the south Florida cold snaps in recent winters? Temps in the upper 30s, the dead iguanas falling out of the trees like overripe fruit. Their numbers still haven't returned, which is actually a good thing, a non-native pest. How did YOU survive when they didn't?

    Just briefly speaking about California. Maybe I've been in Georgia a bit too long (2.5 yrs) but I think the few places I've visited in that state are extremely cold as f**k. Not that there is anything bad about having to wear a jacket in June, but it was foreign to me a bit. But since being back in Georgia after my visit, I could see why people would migrate to colder regions, especially from the Southern US.

    HUMIDITY SUCKS!!!

    Cranque_des_Epices saidIguanas are anything but pests. They eat bugs. We'd be inundated without them.

    No, they are herbivores. The ones we have here are mostly Green Iguanas, that climb trees and are good swimmers. They eat up gardens. We even found a medium-sized one that had somehow climbed up to our second-floor patio and was eating our herbs we have in planters.

    The insect eaters are the small lizards, and they do a good job of control year-round. I see fewer insects in south Florida, and especially flying insects except for 1 season of the year, than I do in many other States to the colder north.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Green_Iguana From this link:

    Due to a combination of events, the Green Iguana is considered an invasive species in South Florida...

    They often destroy gardens and landscaping. They seem to be fond of eating a native endangered plant, Cordia globosa and feeding on Nickernut (Caesalpinia) a primary food plant of the endangered Miami Blue Butterfly (Cyclargus thomasi bethunebakeri); additionally on Marco Island, Green Iguanas have been observed using the burrows of the Florida Burrowing Owl, a species of special concern, all of which can make them more of a serious threat to Florida's ecosystem than originally believed.

    In January 2008, large numbers of feral iguanas in Florida dropped from the trees in which they lived, due to uncommonly cold nights causing them to go into brumation in which they lost their grips on the tree branches. Though no specific numbers were provided by local wildlife officials, local media described the phenomenon as a "frozen iguana shower" in which dozens "littered" local bike paths. Upon the return of daytime warmth many (but not all) of the iguanas "woke up" and resumed their normal activities.This occurred again in January 2010 after a prolonged cold front once again hit southern Florida.

    Humidity keeps skin moisturized. Dry climates require lots of lotion if you don't wanna look like a prune by age 30. icon_wink.gif

    It not humidity that keeps skin moisturized. Its the sweat that doesn't evaporate and runs into your eyes. It leaves you dripping sweat. Armpit sweat on your shirts, Buttcrack sweat marks on your shorts.

    Nevermind that people suffer more heat stroke and exhaustion because they get too hot. Sweat only cools you when it evaporates which doesn't happen in 98% humidity like we have here.

    I am looking forward to the Fall. I'm sick of this 100 degree temperature with a 110 heat index. Add to that the humidity. Sucks.

    Eff that noise. I'll take to using lotion to prevent being ashy than having to sit under a fan for 30 minutes to stop sweating after a run outside. I love somethings about living in the south but the heat isn't one of my favorite things. I'm sure you've had your experiences with the heat too paul. icon_smile.gif

    You can keep warm by cuddling.
