If its gets under 35 and windy I consider that really cold. Yeah I am a wuss to the cold but can tolerate 100 degree weather with no problem.

The same dog bit me, friend. But I am probably worse. Heat has never bothered me much at all...nor humidity, really. But let it get under 50, and I am COLD!

But as to the original question?

1. New York City (or, really, any major city in the Northeast)
2. Detroit
3. San Francisco
4. Washington, D.C.
5. Los Angeles

Exactly! Sprawls & malls are now scattered liberally around the countryside. The only thing that makes them "cities" is that someone drew a large-radius line around them and filed a charter. Woo hoo! We're a CITY!

Though I don't disagree there is a good amount of this element in LA, I'm amazed that NYC didn't make either of your lists if these reasons are the only thing mentioned that would keep you out of LA. Have you read posts on here by SOME NYers? "Full of themselves" and "big timers who are too good for you" would be the nicest possible way to describe some of these peoples' attitude. I'm just curious, is it less acceptable to you guys that this attitude is coming from people from LA while its okay for NY to have it, have you guys simply not experienced this from NY the way I have (I personally think its 1000x more rampant there than in LA), or is there something more about LA that just plain sucks to you than what you mentioned. I'm just curious b/c it differs greatly from my own personal experience.

You would rather live in Augusta over Atlanta??? Are you serious?? Augusta is the arm pit of Georgia, it looks boring and dirty like it belongs in Ohio somewhere. The only strike against Atlanta on here is the crime or the heat, but Augusta has both crime and heat
