Taking into account the worst of both regions, would you rather not tolerate a Northern winter (Fargo), or a Southern summer (Dallas)?

Southern summers.

I lived in Mobile, AL for a time. Summer months were like death.

Depends where in the South or North. I lived in Austin Texas for a summer, and I would take a Boston for example winter over a Austin summer. I would take a Northern winter over a Phoenix or Florida summer as well.

It depends on the individual. I was born and raised in NY and I just cant stand the cold anymore. 9 months of gray, dreary, cold weather takes its toll on me. Some ppl up here love the cold though.

Northern winters. Give me 90 degrees with 108% humidity any day and a 5 on the DARN scale. I'd rather sweat with no A/C than shovel snow, almost kill myself driving on ice, freeze, have to wear heavy clothing, freeze, and just be cold

I've been in FL for many years and hate the summer heat. That said, no matter how hot it gets, I can walk out to my car and drive off. I couldn't handle shoveling snow just to drive somewhere.

We had our windows open today, the payoff for putting up with the sweat of summer!

I can barely handle the short hot summers we have here in Minnesota. I cant tolerate the heat at all but give me a Minnesota winter anytime. Ya just gotta put more layers of clothes on.

I heard that Minnesota gets consecutive weeks of -10 degree HIGH temperatures at a time. Not sure I can handle that.
