Pretty darn brave of you...

The original Alien is probably the scariest one for me as an adult...

I think that one's tolerance of humidity is probably related to where they grew up. I grew up in semi-arid, dry West Texas, so I'm pretty intolerant of high humidity, even in Texas, LOL!! I don't really like anything over 35% unless it has just rained and is overcast.

The humid cold in IN bugged me, but I was running around in CO in a Speedo suit at night in below-zero weather, with only the suit and a terrycloth robe on, and it didn't bother me much at all. I was on my way to the hot springs after a day of skiing....at a little motel in Pagosa Springs!

I told him after we got back to Texas..."Hon, I can't ever live up there, sorry..."

LOL!! Pretty....but COLD!!!
Northwest Indiana/Chicagoland is way up there around 3hrs north of here.

I agree with your statement about humidity tolerance but when one lives in this part of the country it is kind of hard to get used to a certain percentage of Humidity. The Humidity is always going out the wazoo! 0% one day and 70% the next

Well atleast you did give it a shot up here

Most people wouldnt even try.

We still (mostly) had regular school days when it was down in the -10's and -20's

Uphere most people have a pretty good tolerance of the cold temperatures so it doesnt feel that bad.

If you change his name to Brad Pit, it may keep the females away.
I think Brad Pitt (the actor) sucks. He's a sorry ass excuse for a man and a human.

Yeap i've been researching about people who thrive in the cold or in heat as they're learning it's in our genes. I definately take my mom's italian side who all have black curly hair and we tan in the sun and it feels endorphinic. My dad's british side has light hair and their skin burns easy in the sun and they despise the sun and heat (like cathy ..lol..)

I have fair skin but don't despise the sun; I just don't get in it as much as I did back in the 70's.
I'm more into protecting it now if I'm going to be out for any period of time, like on a beach.
Sunscreen usually has a bunch of bad chemicals in it and that doesn't help.

Yep. People who have lived up there most of their lives are probably used to both the high humidity (0% in IN..??) and cold combined.

HOWEVER....SO is still in TX...he spends summers up there, but winters in TX! Go figure that one out!

Even though I grew up in dry and hot, I prefer dry and COLD.

Once it gets wet, all bets are off, LOL!!
