Quote from: Iago on November 25, 2007, 03:31:49 PMIf only "old" people are attracted to warm climates, how come the States of Florida, Arizona and Nevada are building schools (to accommodate the influx of pupils) at a breakneck rate?

People of "retirement" age don't usually have children in the public schools.Young people are moving to those climes because those are the places that offer multiple job opportunities. The population of this country is in the midst of a shift from the northeast to the southwest. And relatively low taxes are one of the factors attracting them (except in California).

Quote from: 12tone. on November 25, 2007, 08:48:41 AMWow. I'm Canadian and I've seen it pretty cold. It's pretty cold these days and no one is grumpy. That's because we're oh...what was it, oh yeah, Canadian. Do people in Alaska, Norway, Russia fight because it's so cold? No. They were born into that climate. It's what they're used to. If you went to those places and were grumpy I could see that because you're used to the warmness of where you live.People in those places and here in Canada don't get grumpy because 0c isn't weather 'out of the blue'. It's normal where it should apply.Come on Iago...
Quote from: Corey on November 25, 2007, 03:57:13 PMClimate? In Florida? It feels like a rice paddy in Laos for 9 months of the year! The period from November to February is the only time the climate could be called "nice".
Quote from: EmpNapoleon on November 25, 2007, 12:02:26 PMI recently learned a method to keep warm from a taxi driver. I haven't used it yet, since the Chicago winter has not arrived. He basically told me to relax. I should try and compose myself when I'm shivering, chattering my teeth, moving around to shake the cold. As I relax, the temperature of my body will automatically increase 2 degrees. And I won't look like an compulsive maniac. Hope it works.
