3. Anywhere people say the weather changes every 5 minutes. It's overused, especially if you live west of the Rockies. The weather is pretty predictable in most places; unless you live in South Dakota anyhow:

Happened to a friend of mine in Atlanta. His co-wokrers looked at him as if he said he was going to the moon.

Canada? Why? There's nothing there.

60s is warm, shorts and t-shirt weather actually.

Well, it does vary depending on ambient conditions (i.e. wind, dewpoint, etc). A dry 60F after a cool front can feel quite chilly, but the same temp with a higher dewpoint can feel a bit muggy. But 60F is a pretty mild temp, for the most part.

Do many people wear T-shirts and shorts in winter in San Francisco? I haven't been, but I suspect it would be seen as eccentric. San Francisco's winter climate is broadly similar to Cape Town's, but a little cooler, and T-shirts and shorts are definitely not normal attire there.

How many people do you see wearing shorts and tshirt in the UK in October?

Unless they are running, pretty much zero.

You do see one or two, mostly postmen for some reason, but it's pretty eccentric. Like you might see the odd person on a sunny summer day wearing a heavy coat.

You will see a few during an October warm spell, but assuming the month stays very close to average you won't see any unless they are exercising.

Well where I live is for the most part not t-shirt weather in October and is cooler than both November and February in SF. 9 October is the first day with an average high below 16C after summer.
