I'm trying to figure out how you would know that those cities outranked all US cities at the end of 2015 when those numbers aren't even available from the census yet.
Read the sources I gave. They explain how these conclusions are reached.

We are talking apples and oranges. You were speaking specifically about city populations only and I was speaking specifically about MSA's (in post #69).

I guess that clears it up.

Sure its hot! But the slightest preparations (water, sunscreen, and hat) can easily make outdoor activities entirely possible. I think youre just a weakling when it comes to heat? I dunno. I ride my bike in the dead of summer, and Ill pass hundreds of other people doing the same. The bike path goes right past a skate park. Guess what? Its full of skaters and bikers. It also meanders past several golf courses, also with golfers playing their hearts out. A few turns later it goes past a disc golf course, that ALWAYS has people playing in summer, too.

Sure beats having to evacuate my home in Houston due to hurricanes or MORE flooding.

Give me a break.
Again it is Hell On Earth in the dead of summer in Phoenix. All of those people are not outside during July and August between 2pm and 5pm I will guarantee it. There is no way anyone can withstand the 130+ degree radiation. You have to admit that just about anything you touch that absorbs heat will burn you. I remember going golfing in the summer. We would have to go very early in the morning and then basically keep ourselves soaked with water and place a cold towel on our head just to endure the morning heat. When I say that even at 10pm it is still 100 degrees I am not exaggerating.

It's also a hell on earth in Houston during summer. You can't bash how hot Phoenix is in the summer if you live in a place like Houston LMAO that's like the pot calling the kettle black. Anyways this is such a stupid argument, no one seems to agree on which summer they prefer lol....and to be honest I think it's because both summers are equally horrible.

You're right. It's all stupid. In fact, let me just add that I do not think Houston is too humid. It's just not dry enough...lol...jk.

I bike in the dead heat of summer, in mid day. I hike in the mid day heat, too. And guess what, genius? There are plenty of other people doing the same. I ride a bike 40 miles in 108 degree heat. I wouldnt expect golfers to do anything sporty anyways. Your idea of "sport" is drinking beer, riding around on a cart, and smacking a ball around. That expains why golf wimps cant tolerate a little heat w/o wrapping towels around their heads. lol
