      1 (cold) is the lie. You love the cold don't you haha.

      I want to guess that you're not writing a book, but for some reason I feel like an asshole guessing that.

      I think the lie is that you hate the cold.

        I wish that was the lie. :/

          Yeah depending on where you lived in Australia, you'll either love or hate the cold. Brisbane, so I love the cold. Screw 40C+ summers. You can dress up for Winter, there's only so much clothing you can take off in public before you're arrested.

            Hah. I have the same attitude about the cold. I also thought all of Australia would be hot, so thanks for the education.

              Tasmania apparently gets fairly cold in the winter. Had a friend go down there one time and complain about having to go outside for a smoke.

              Tassies only think they know cold. Tassies don't know cold.

            I was in Brisbane. I loved the heat. I grew up in cold, so I'll take all the heat I can get.

              Well I can confirm that it's a nice 20C here atm, feels 15C due to cloud cover.

              We're at about 25C here. Next week we're forecasted to be in the mid-30s, and I'm looking forward to it. Of course Denver has a dry heat you might appreciate more.

      I'm going to guess number 2, and that you're originally from Australia.

        No, I meant it when I said I grew up in the cold. I grew up in upstate New York, the Buffalo south towns where the ground disappeared under snow around November and didn't reappear until May. I learned to hate the cold while delivering newspapers.

          Nice. I lived in Rochester for a time so I know all about that snow.

            And then you have people like me, who have never seen snow in their lives. For better or worse.
