    mmmm shorts *drools*

    given the choice I'd spend my life wearing shorts and tshirts and comfy footwear.

    hahaha well I do it almost all the time anyway, if it's at least mildly warm enough outside I'm in shorts and a tshirt, I hate winter cause I gotta wear pants and jeans but it's a catch 22, I'm a heavy sweater, in summer I sweat like a pig which I hate but in winter I still sweat like a pig but it's all hidden under the layers of clothes hahaha.

    ugh just deport me to canada, I'll be happy there, I'll turn white as a snow flake but I'll be cold and less sweaty or frozen solid, either way Bonus icon_smile.gif

    I don't get the "shorts in winter" thing either. I hear the kids say--I'm more comfortable. I say--you look like an idiot. Sorry to the shorts folks!

    While I find shorts outdoors in the winter to be ludicrous...

    ...many places drastically overheat the insides of buildings. I do not understand why many people decide to turn the thermostat to 72 in the winter and 68 in the summer -- winter clothes are warmer than summer clothes, and the interior of the building should be adjusted for that, not inverted. I set my house to 75 in the summer (largely using the air conditioning as a whole house dehumidifier), and 62 in the winter before I had kittens, 65 with them so that they don't get too cold. When I have company over in the winter, I turn the heat up to 68...and change into a pair of shorts. 68 is a little warm for long pants for me.

    Because of this overheating, my brother used to wear shorts year round in college in Rochester, NY, because, to paraphrase him, he'd "rather be too cold on the 5-7 minute walk to class than too warm and unable to concentrate for the hour long lecture".

    I often think it is lazy people who only very occasionally do laundry and have run out of clean pants and are on their way to the store to buy more underwear.

    oh Ben, its far worse in Canada.... the office buildings and peoples homes are so overheated youd be a hot wet mess.... mmmm.

    I much preferred Australia's climate to here, also the lack of central heating in a lot of homes helped, Im always roasty toasty.

    WTF!?!? Shorts in winter? Can you really call that winter if the skin on your legs doesn't turn black from wearing shorts? And flip flops?

    This is absurd...

    Girls can be even worse about this; they won't even wear a jacket. And, of course, they tend to complain more too. icon_rolleyes.gif

    As for myself, no matter how many layers of clothing I have on I'll still be cold. :/

    Lol yes. I live in Phoenix too and wearing shorts and sandals is normal all year including the winter, its great. When I'm anywhere else in the cold winter winds I do have a tendency to wear shorts but my legs don't get cold, just my arms. You won't catch me wearing sandals though!

    Other than potential shrinkage, I really don't see a problem.

    an illuminating excerpt from Stuff White People Like:

    #86- Shorts.

    "One thing prized by white people is making the most of situations. They like to maximize opportunities for all that they are worth. This applies to jobs, vacations, investments, books, education, and perhaps most important, warm days.

    After a prolonged cold snap, white people are very excited at the first hint of a warm day. It is their opportunity to go back outside, to enjoy nature and thrive. In order to get the most enjoyment possible out of these days, white people turn to one of their most trusted allies: shorts.

    It is a known fact that white people believe they can cause spring to arrive early by wearing a pair of shorts on any day that is slightly above seasonal temperatures. This myth runs so deep that they will often wear shorts the following day when temperatures drop, at which point they will refuse to admit it is cold.

    When you encounter a cold white person in shorts it's best to say, "I can't wait until it's warm enough to go windsurfing." they will likely give you a high five."
