Would you rather have it 100 or 0 (F) for a week straight? Hopefully the results won't be skewed being in the middle of summer

No brainer. 100 for me.

I would choose 100 F for a week than 50 F for a week.

A fairer comparison might be 110 F or 120 F vs. 0 F,
as 0 F imho represents extreme cold, but 100 F is not-very-extreme.

I would still pick 110 F vs. 0 F,
but it might be a tough call 120 F vs. 0 F since I know how to deal with 0 F, but 120 F would be a mystery.
(120 F could be when metal burns you in the shade )

100 degrees! Though I'd have to buy an air conditioner if that kept up.

I voted Zero. I am assuming that there will be no wind, that week!

I think it's easier adding clothes and such to stay warmer than it is to try and stay cooler.
In saying that, I prefer the heat though.

I'll take the 100 if I'm going to be at the beach or pool in that week and for every day straight.
Otherwise its a tough call. Unless there is snow on the ground if its 0 degrees outside (or 20-30 degrees for that matter) I'm going to be inside most of the time with the heat on anyways.

100 easily. I've never experienced 0F, and anything from about 42F down is considered bitterly cold where I'm from.
