2.)If mosquitoes can be found even in the Arctic tundra, then they can easily be found in a warm, frost-less area like coastal California.

All I was doing was disagreeing with the notion that Phoenix's dry heat would be more comfortable than Houston's humid heat. I also dislike the dry climate compared to the humid climate. But that's where it ends; I think both cities have ideal climates compared to much of the rest of this country.

I voted OKC for worst weather because it gets hot and humid during summer, but without the strong chance of relief from summer thunderstorms like Houston. OKC also doesn't have the benefit of nice winters like Phoenix and Houston; instead, it goes right to getting blizzards and deep freezes in winter. And then you have the threat of killer twisters, hailstorms, etc, in spring. No thanks.
That's a fair assessment, respect.

That's not the point. They're not a nuisance you have to think about here.
I'm sure their are SOME but it's nothing like the east.
I remember putting on bug spray if it was staying outdoors for an extended time.

Everything about humidity is awful.

A warm, frostless climate like coastal California is going to feature lots of insects in some form, or another. And the Pacific Ocean ensures that humidity is present there as well.

Like I said, it's nothing like the east coast/Midwest. It's not even in the same ball park with insects.
You notice it right away.

If you say so.

Anyways, the coastal South's humidity allows for many great things: bountiful, lush vegetation, plentiful rainfall, moist skin amongst the people (giving way to luscious women), list goes on. Even if it gets uncomfortably, you still have the lush vegetation, Gulf/South Atlantic winds, heavy thunderstorms, and cloud cover to alleviate things.

It's not what I say, it's what it is.
I lived in two humid places for almost my entire life. I know what it's like. And humidity is suffocating more than anything
. Those thunderstorms make it worse.
Now I live in a place with more of a dry heat.
Either way, California weather is more comfortable for the vast majority of people.

California doesn't lack in attractive women the slightest so I have no idea what you're talking about.

Phoenix has more stunning women than most of the East coast cities. It's basically an extension of socal.

You clearly have no clue what you are talking about nor have you ever been to scottsdale. I'm originally from the east and when I moved to Phoenix I was stunned by how beautiful the woman were, and this is coming from someone who isn't sexually attracted to woman. Over 1 in 9 people from PHX area are from california also. If you don't believe me look at this video of Phoenix/scottsdale women...way better than east coast LOL.
