I don't handle heat at all. When it hits 75 at home...I'm headed to the lake for that cool breeze through my hair cruising the boat, or swimming, or jump in the model T and putt on up to the local watering hole for an ice cold beer in a frosted mug. I'm gonna make one more trip this next week up to the glacier, for another big hunk of glacier ice. That stuff is slow to melt. Should last me the summer for ice cubes!

Maybe you could send a chunk of that glacier down to NAH and he could put it under his sheets and cuddle with it!

NAH you should try one of those cooling collars as seen on TV! Has little fans and sits around your neck. Then when you sweat it shorts out and fries your brain? I could just him running down the street screaming and trailing smoke from both ears!

How well do you handle cold? How cold is too cold? I can handle 75 degrees if I dont exert myself, as for cold, not sure but I think anything above zero is tolerable

I handle cold better than heat. I've been out in it all my life. Commercial fishing, hunting, oil feild, winter recreation, you name it. When it gets down around 10 degrees I just have to dress for it. When it gets more than say 35 or 40 below...it's just cold. You can dress for it and use the buddy system to watch for frostbite. Work 15 minutes...warm up for 1/2 hour. 40 or 50 below ambiant with a breath of wind will freeze exposed flesh pretty quick. I've been frost bit before on my cheeks and ears. I looked like bozo the clown for 2 weeks. The fun thing is...you can stand on a second story landing and take a leak...by the time it hits the ground it's froze and bouncing around like marbles!

WoW! You're brave exposing the little fella to temperatures like that! Doesn't he freeze?

LOL I found that fact funny! As for 10 degrees, are you saying you can be comfortable in summer cloth down to 10 degrees? For me, its about 50 degrees if its sunny with no wind and im not standing still, ie walking. I would say an indoor temp of 70-77 is comfortable shirtless. You seem to have extremely high tolerance to cold. I am thinking ill be able to tolerate cold if its above zero and im dressed for it.
