I can't sleep well unless it is over 72 degrees. I have a fear of waking up
frozen to death. I fear more yet for my reptiles and warm water fish.

I would rather inhale mosquitoes than get frost bite and hypothermia.
Mosquito dope is a lot more comfortable than seven layers of clothing.

I have cut trees with chainsaws in both conditions. In the winter when you
arrive home strip out of soaked frozen clothes, and then feel the burn as
numb skin starts to come to room temp. In the summer the sweating is
invigorating, and I can watch all the nasty crud drip out of my pores.

> But I guess this is one of those where the mileage varies... :)

For this subject, that line applies very well.

Anyways, I am pretty sure I am cold blooded. Might explain a lot of these
