To make money. Except for a hat and gloves, they are a waste of money.

Well, if the weather feels cold shouldn't you be wearing something warmer. Either layer up or stop consistently complaining that its too cold outside . Seriously, you are an adult and should be responsible enough to know that 45 F typically demands a sweatshirt.

The same thing happened in March when a guy dared to wear shorts in 50 degree weather and whined that he needed pants a couple minutes later. I think its silly for girls and guys alike to under dress when its chilly outside, not Fashionable or Manly. Tell me what all of you think.
During my time in college, it was considered a macho thing for guys to under-dress in cold weather.

I do brave the cold and heat, but with appropriate clothing . Will not do it for a silly 10 minute dare. Wearing shorts in snow makes me want to pi**, which is embarrassing rather than "macho".

Finally, an explanation for the college guys in shorts in 20 degree weather. I've always wondered.

Nobody is going to thing you are "tough and manly" because of this. They sell season specific apparel in the northern states for a reason you know.
I must say, you have some issues...

I remeber standing outside during college and it was in the 20's out, and some guy comes in shorts and a t-shirt and says something like "I am freezing!" to group group of his friends, I am thinking "why not just dress for the weather then?"

Many women in collge also wore those stupid running shorts or whatever they are around in the winter, they all act like they are going to/from the gym, but never do.
