I want to invent a pillow and call it the "Chillow" that always stays a perfect cool , lovely temp to rest our weary heads.

Cold....bitter cold actually! I love being outdoors in frigid temps. Teens for the high and singles for the low or cloder! I ice fish 75 to 80 days a year and I can tell you that I seldom get sick when its super cold out. I breath better and if the weather stabilizes and it stays dry and cold, my joints feel better than when it roller coasters. Sometimes I crack a beer, put on my Trans-Alaskan suit and Baffin's and sit in a lawn chair with a foot of snow at my feet and stare at the stars in sub zero temps! Ahh.....bring on Jack Frost's revenge!

Interesting question. Me and my wife are total polar opposites on this. I love heat, I can cook in 104+, without complaint. Probably all the roofing and siding jobs I've done.
She adores the cold. So much, the house temp is kept so low i wear a light coat at night in the summer, just to stay warm.
Everyone has the "comfort zone", and it's easily divided amongst those familiar with the temp. She works in offices and at peoples homes. So 72 should be the norm to her...maybe even 68, or whatever.
I've baked in a sun long enough to where I had to enjoy it, elsewise, I wouldn't be much in my field.
Does that make sense, or have I just had one too many tall boys?

I live in the wrong state for my preference, I love it hot. The hotter the better. I even have a heater under my desk, for when they crank the AC here at work, along with several sweaters.
I also married a cold lover that works outside all day. I think that is the biggest fight we have, summer time and the central air at home.

HA! In the dead of winter I get to work an hour early, sit outside and read. Of course, I'm dressed for it and I can control how much heat escapes by simply zipping or unzipping my winter jacket. I can't do this inside the factory. When the heat is on I am positively miserable.
