How can you sat that " Temps in the 90's with humidity close to 90 is not supposed to feel comfortable to the human body."?

That 90 degrees is going to feel drastically different to someone that weighs 300 lbs and someone that weighs 190. Let alone a myriad of other factors.
at 105 lbs., and OLD ("old people cannot take the cold), I should be freezing all the time, instead of sweating.

Let's look at what I said.

I bolded it it, underlined it, italicized it and put it in red so you wouldn't miss it this time.

I also didn't say whether the myriad of other factors would make someone feel warmer or cooler.

We are all made up differently regardless of our weight to in compare with the climax.

I hear so much talk about Florida summers, yet none of it bothers me because I accept it as Floridian tropical weather. The alternative would be to go back to my home state - Long Island - no thanks!

Look at it this way.........your average body temp is 98.6, so what's the big deal if it's 94 out with a heat index of 106? It's more natural than if it's 22 and there is no hair on a non-cro magnon arse.

If any of you Floridians can't stand the heat any more I would be willing to trade places with you, Oh you'll love it up here in the great northern tundra of Maine.

Now just speaking for myself today was the perfect 10.. dry low 70's during the day and into the 50's at night. Well I guess I need to move to a place like Santa Barbara where I really could live without an A/C. Southern Florida would have remained as nothing but a couple of remote seaside villages catering to snowbirds if A/C had never been invented.

Yes, we want to live in backward third world countries. Well Miami is well on the way there already in some respects. Do you really think people in an advanced society can be productive, creative and energetic when it is so hot and humid? Ever notice that so few of our great cities in this world are in the tropics?

NYC is definitely not tropical but it is really hot here in the summer REALLY HOT and I think NYC would probably be considered THE CITY - that is what summers are hot!! I understand that a lot of people find Florida temps uncomfortable but they are easier to adjust to than -20 - that is just a fact!

May I suggest you study topics of geography and history a bit more? Start somewhere easy like Jared Diamond's "Guns Germs and Steele." There's a Wikipedia synopsis on it if you'd rather take a shortcut.

Environment can affect development, but it's not "Heat and humidity" or tropical weather that is the cause. The development and agricultural patterns of old effect the location of the "great" cities of today.

However, the great pre-Columbian Aztecs, Maya, etc., all existed in hot and humid areas, and were very advanced. Iraq is a hot hellish hole for half the year, with temperatures approaching 120F in the summer, has much more severe and erratic weather than Miami, and was the cradle of civilization.

Yeah? Well we'd all be living at the equator if someone didn't harness the power of fire thousands of years ago.

What's your point?
