In this other thread Shagnasty brought up something I’ve been wondering about for a while.
So I said:
My thinking is, you can freeze to death, pretty easily actually, on a cold day. You can’t easily catch fire on a hot day. Yes, there’s heatstroke and stuff like that, but that’s much less likely to happen than all the awful things that can happen in the cold.
So people had to invent clothes and all this other new technology to be able to survive the cold, just so they could… what? What was so fucking attractive up here that made it worth facing deadly cold every year? Were they stupid or what?
