I'm in Minnesota, bruh. Come up here and see for yourself before you start talking talk. Come up in July and we'll go chill at Stella's rooftop in Uptown. And when your skin starts burning and your shirt is stuck to your back from being soaking wet from the humidity, you cannot say a thing. Because you're from Florida and you're awesome and you can handle heat no matter what, and 87 sunny hot and humid is Minneapolis is under you, huh man?. My Family has a place in Naples, so I've actually been to Florida are the summers aren't too different, chief.

it's no different from people up there bragging that they can take the cold. Everyone brags about how tough they are. And 87 isn't hot...

I just think people are compelled to one-up each other at every opportunity, because they need to feel like they're "better" somehow.

It's like people who brag about their city having the highest murder rate. Who the hell would want to be proud of that?

I'd much prefer tropical (coastal tropical), but hey, you can't have everything.

Who's saying it's 'cool' to be cold?

I can take the cold, but only because I have to. It's like bragging about brushing your teeth.

I get what you're saying- Yeah, you don't mind 87 degrees. Whatever. What I'm saying is I don't really agree with the titling of "Cool Summers". It doesn't make sense. It's misleading. It's the reason why I get asked if I live in igloos (In Florida) and have someone ask "does Minneapolis get summers" and "How can people have pools in Minnesota?" (In California).

People develop an acclimation for the places they live in. To me in Minnesota, 0 degrees is cold, but I can handle it. It's not crazy to think 10 degrees is warm. To someone in Florida, 87 degrees might not seem too hot, for them. But to say '87 isn't hot' or '20 isn't cold' is just stupid.

Again, hot's hot, and cold's cold.
To sit there and be like "Hehe, I'm from Florida and no one can really understand how warm our summers are, I mean just no one can ever say they are hot man because I'm in Floridaaa" is just silly.
