Do you prefer to live in a region with a temperate climate or four seasons, and why?

Regions with temperate climate do have four seasons, and there are people that would prefer to live in not temperate zones without four seasons.

Just who makes up inane questions like that?

(Me, if not for the grocery store being a bit far, I'd prefer Antarctica, for the better weather.)

You LIKE -40 degree weather? On a warm day?

Sure. Cold can be kept outside. Warm not so much. (And you can only take off so many clothes and still melt - well, I do - while putting on clothes is only limited by needing to staying mobile.)

:P

(What I like not so much is wind though. Currently we've got -10°C, which is perfectly fine unless walking along a wide street without obstacles keeping the even only light breeze away. I figure Antarctica has lots of wind and few obstacles. That's why I'd rent a cave, right across the street from the grocery store, if there were any of that.)

Heat can be kept outside just as easily as cold; you just need the appropriate technology in both cases. I don't like putting on extra layers of clothes if I'm inside, OR taking off extra clothes; the job of modern technology is to keep the internal temperature the one *I* want, and not whatever arbitrary Mother Nature wants.

Yes, there's LOTS of wind in Antartica. Plenty of videos from McMurdo station for you to see the snow going along in horizontal lines.

I like extra layers of clothes. I don't like wearing next to no clothes. The technology you mention doesn't seem to have made its way to my flat yet, and I doubt it would help when I have to go outside.

I well remember last summer, when, going (by bicycle) to an appointment at the dentist, I took a half-liter bottle of frozen tapwater with me, and by the time I arrived I could drink from it (as well as cool my forehead and wrists with the bottle). I don't like iced drinks, but there was no other defense. (At home, I was melting, with front and back windows open and enough draught to blow the netcurtains around.)

Gah, I hate summer. Leave me my dreams about Antarctica. (Plus, the current snow is in part responsible for my happy/peaceful mood. :) )

"Yes, there's LOTS of wind in Antartica. Plenty of videos from McMurdo station for you to see the snow going along in horizontal lines."

Heh. Will have to go search for that.
