    Biologically it is always better to be cold, because you'll survive more often than not in colder environments. Our bodies evolved to deal with them because higher sources of external heat are rarer on Earth naturally.

    Yes, we have sweat to cool off, but that has the caveat of being linked to blood volume. Without water you'll die, but in the same degree of coldness your body will burn brown fat to keep homeostasis, and even then you won't die until your temp drops significantly. You'll definitely die of dehydration before the high temp can denature your proteins and kill you that way.

    Pretty much this. You can get pretty close to perfect insulation to cover the cold, but there are limits to how far you can go when it is hot...and you don't want to see me get even close to that level of trying to cool off...

    Rather it be cold but only mildly. Like 30-40F any colder and I'd be super miserable I'm sure. Having lived in a hot n humid area my whole life I'm quite over it. The winters we get down here are just ​right

    As someone from a warm place, particularly with humidity, cold is the answer

    Cold. Like sub-60F all the time. Maybe once or twice it can get above 80 just for some pool fun. Society doesn't need my dad bod walking around nudie.

    Heat actually make me sick. Headache and diareah are usual in summer. I just hate this weather since a kid.

    And smelling sweat in any somewhat closed public space is just disgusting.

    I used to vastly prefer cold over hot.

    And then I got a car, and cold wasn't so awesome anymore...

    Now, I don't really favor one over the other anymore. There are negatives and positives to both.

    Brisk but not too cold. Like autumn type weather.

    I'd rather live in a colder climate and visit a hot climate than the other way around. So I guess cold.

    Though I'd prefer living where there are 4 seasons and substantial differences in yearly temperatures. Norfolk, Virginia up to about the Montreal seems to suit me. The Carolina's and South are too warm for me, Northern Canada, is too cold, presumably this is a part of the reason why nearly everyone in Canada lives so close to the US border.

    Prefer cold to hot as well. Hate the sweating and grossness of heat/humidity.

You also have to deal with streets not being plowed as well as snow and ice causing potholes to form. And if it is getting plowed getting stuck behind a gravel truck is always fun.
    Cold doesn't necessarily mean icy, it just means cold.

    what is hot and what is cold?

    I prefer hot, i really am not bothered unless it is over 35C. As for cold goes, nowadays its around 12C and i really hate it. It just makes me uncomfortable and my hands are cold all the time (thats probably a health issue).

    I have never had to endure very cold weather (sub 0) except specific days (living in Buenos Aires).

    Snow is pretty to look at but that’s about it for me.

    You can do things to cool off when you're hot besides taking off clothes. Stay in the shade, fans, AC, jump in the pool, cool water.

    As someone who has lived in both cold and hot climates - Hot - Southern AZ, FL / Cold - Upstate NY, Northern CO, I much prefer hotter climates. I can't stand being cold and don't want to have to look like the Michelin man in clothes to stay warm. However, humidity is the worst and it doesn't matter if it's hot or cold, humidity sucks. Hot and dry climate is the best.
