Tórshavn by a mile. Both awful climates though.

Torshavn- the heat in Yuma would drive me crazy in summer and Torshavn gets some snow mixed in with all that gloomy rain. While I'd hate the lack of summer sun and warmth in Torshavn, at least the scenery would be nice and green.

Torshavn wins for me. I never thought I'd ever say that! Yuma is too hot during the summer, being outside would be hardwork.

I doubt many people who live in Yuma would describe the climate as wonderful.

Yuma by far.

Torshavn looks and sounds disgusting.

I choose Yuma. At least then I can decide when I want some sun. With Tórshavn you're at the mercy of nature.

Neither one are particularly exciting.

Yuma is way too hot starting in late April and doesn't cool off enough to be comfortable until mid October. Growing anything I can eat requires a lot more rain than falls here and even with irrigation, the soils around here are so alkaline that I would have to amend it constantly. I like a lot more sun than my locale gets now but 4100+ hours is a bit much - even for me (assuming Wikipedia stats are accurate - they aren't always).

Torshavn......Hoo boy. Even in sun deprived Corvallis OR, we get more sunshine than Torshavn's best efforts in 9 of 12 months. And as gloomy as our winters are, they aren't a whole lot worse than this cloud magnet's summertime averages.
Those 210 days of measurable precip? They are likely based on a standard of 1 mm rather than the American standard of 0.01 inch or about 0.25 mm. If we used 0.01" as a reference then Torshavn may have as many as 280 or even 300 days of measurable precipitan annually.
I find mildewing in public to be quite embarrasing so this is one spot to cross off my bucket list...
