This might sound a bit strange but do you prefer to be too hot or too cold? It seems that most people seem to prefer to be too hot but i hate being too hot. I either feel sick or get sleepy! I much prefer to be cold. Does anyone else feel agree with me?

I prefer to be comfortably inbetween! But since that is seldom an option - if I had to choose I'd rather be cold. You can always throw on another blanket,add a sweater, drink something warm, but if you are hot, your're sunk! You can only take off so much clothes, and drinking cold, doesn't last very long. You have hypothermeia or heat stroke, what are ya going to do! What makes us hot or cold, is our blood. If blood is cold, you will be cold. IF it is hot, you will be hot. Next time you are really hot, run cold water over your wrists and feel yourself cool off!

I totally agree with you!! I can't stand being hot, you get all sweaty and stinky =) It is just miserable to me to be really hot! I love the cold weather, when you are cold you can always put on a sweater or something, but when you are hot you can only take off so much.

I've heard many people say as another poster to this discussion said that you can always add enough clothing to get warm but you can't take enough off to get cool. I must disagree with that! I've never liked cold weather but from my experiences as a letter carrier for 18 years I can tell you when it was bitter cold and windy and damp - you know, all that fun stuff! - and I was out in it for seven, eight hours straight no amount of clothing could make me warm. My fingers and my face were the worse, and when you need the use of your fingers to deliver the mail it's really miserable. Another thing I've found is that when I'm cold, literally "chilled to the bone" I can't warm up until I soak in a HOT tub for about an hour. When I'm hot once I get into an air-conditioned room or car or a pool of water I'm fine. Also, my bones and joints really HURT when it's cold and the warm sun makes them feel better. Annie
