    Well, while it’s both, and Arizona does get pretty doggone hot in the summer, the most miserable heat I ever experienced was Taipei. Not as hot as AZ, but 100% humidity and rain at the same time.

    I've been to Taipei a couple of times but in winter. Great place!
    Lived in HK for a couple of years. Disgustingly hot and humid, walking to work at 6am and being drenched by sweat about 5 minutes out of the house.
    Singapore was better. Slightly.

    Singapore was tough for me, seeing as I can sweat when it's snowing, but having to watch businessmen on their way to work in suits and ties!

    EDIT: perfect for me right now. 18C (64F), sunny, dry and breezy. Lawn mowing weather.

    It's not the heat. . . It's the humility.

    Luckily I mowed yesterday, when it was only very oppressively hot.
    With this:

    It builds both physical AND mental strength/stamina, and being a Remington, I'm guessing that means you can also shave with it or kill people with it. Maybe both!
    Anyway well, yeah, spring was nice for a little while.

    We lived in Seoul for a while. Took a family vacation to Thailand and Singapore in April. Got on the airplane in Seoul and it was about 50 F, and we were comfortable. Got off the airplane in Bangkok, and it was 100 F and 95+% humidity. We were all sweat hogs. The locals looked dry and seemed to be saying, “Yeah, it is a little warm today...”. Chang Mai and Phuket was much nicer, and Singapore was pretty decent. Of course, I was in neither place in the middle of summer, so I might be singing their “praises” in lieu of Taipei.

    The old joke here in Phoenix is that a guy from Phoenix dies and goes to Hell. The devil asks what the guy thinks of the heat. The devil asks what the guy thinks of the heat. The guy shrugs off the question because he was from Phoenix. The devil turns up the thermostat several times, and asks the question again. Each time the guy shrugs off the heat because he’s from Phoenix. Finally the devil turns the thermostat down to minimum. Hell is covered in ice. He goes to the guy and asks what he thinks of the temperature, The guy, hugging himself, blue and shivering manages to get out “Did the Cardinals win the Super Bowl?”

    At some point, you get used to any environment you make up your mind to live in. If I were living in Taipei, I’d probably do what I did here for the first year (when I had daily driver without AC), have clothes for going to and from the office, and something to wear in the the office. When I worked there, my accommodations provided by the company were half a block from the office; so no big deal for the suits that were de rigueur for the office at the time.

    Weird thing about HK, as soon as the faintest edge came off the oppressive summer heat, a lot of the locals would get around in North Face parkas, would huddle in to each other while sitting on park benches and say how cool the weather was. It would still be 34C and 90 percent humidity. If i asked anyone if they felt a little bit overdressed, they said they prefer to be hot than cold, or if it's cloudy (most of the time it was, or maybe that was just smog) then it must be cold.

    I think it was more an opportunity to be the first to display a popular brand each year..

    If they step outside during the summer, the sun will barbecue them if the gators don’t get them first:eek:

    If it was 60 degrees outside, the humidity wouldn't be bothering anyone.

    When they have the Singapore GP F1 race at Marina Bay, it's so humid you can see the air turbulence trailing behind the cars.
