That makes sense, I am both tall and reasonably lean and I do very badly in the cold. At the other end I can live in heat that will kill most people. If you look at genetic adaption in different parts of the world, both current and past, folks who survive in very cold climates are physically compact and reasonably rotund, they store more body fat for both insulation and energy reserve. People who have a genetic history from temperate to hot climates are usually lean and long, people who come from a genetic history of cold climates are a different adaption.

Similar thing with skin colour, people from cold climates are often very fair and can absorb vitamin D even in low light conditions where folks from hot climates with dark skin often suffer from Rickets (vitamin D deficiency) if they live in a cold climate. At the other end dark skinned people can survive in hot climates and high sunlight and absorb enough vitamin D where fair skinned people get badly sunburnt and are high risks to skin cancer.

That's a simple example on how the fittest organism for one environment is not necessarily the fittest organism for another environment.

There only way there would be a perfect race is if the environment was static (which is only possible on an unchanging universe). Overspecialization of a species to a given environment is one way to guarantee its extinction.

Feel free to tell that to all eugenicist wannabe and master race advocates you encounter.   :bgrin:

After seeing the motley crew that made up the inner circle of the Nazi era, you would wonder what it takes to be superior. About the only one that was even close was Reinhard Heydrich and that was probably due to his Jewish grandmother. While the rise of Nazi Germany had much to do with the appalling economic circumstances that did so much damage in the late 1920s and onwards, modern neo-nazis around the world tend to be a bunch of freaks covered in tatoos with a nostalgic view of power from the Nazi era and a chip on their shoulder for being powerless.

Here in California, we all know that climate extremes are a myth.
In fact, the local pro-caliphate religious extremists enforce the bikini edict, to devastating effect,...
...And, of course,...in Colorado and Arizona all the approved bikini babes belong to the open-carry movement,...
Isn't FREEDOM great ???

You mean Cave Creek, or do you refer to the second photo?

"Surprise - 1350 F"
Yes, that is quite a surprise! (1350 F = 732 C)


As for the second picture, I don't see how those would keep you cool, but they do look delicious (obviously I'm talking about the donuts.)
