    For my gentlemanly and friendly classmates, in this world, four games exist: Counter-Strike, LoL, DotA and Travian. No, don't ask.

    Also fifty witnesses that you're a real and existing person under the name you're using.

    That's almost balmy. It's -30C here (with wind chill; without wind chill it's -18C).

    That's an insane temperature. My comfort zone is less than half that.

    Given a choice between -30C (or even -18C) and 44.4C, I'll take the latter.

    Very minor rant: When you're playing with Akinator and then suddenly it asks you a specific question and you know its got you. It can be pretty freaky how quickly it can narrow things down.

    While I'm no fan of really low temperatures, there is the option to put on seventeen layers of clothing and be reasonable comfortable when outside. At very high temperatures I will be uncomfortable outside no matter what.

    While anything over 30 Celsius is really hot (and 44 likely is hellish if one is outside), -30 indeed sounds a lot worse..

    I think that 20-25 is great for the Spring/Summer :)

    They are both god-awful, but the hotter one less so.

    And it likely is a lot more difficult to die from extreme heat (eg 40+ degrees) than from extreme cold (-30 and below).

    What's worse than cold or heat though, is damp cold and damp heat. It's usually not too bad as long as its relatively dry, but add a bit of humidity, and yuccccck.
