It's about 30 degrees celsius here. I have the ceiling fan on though.

Problem: I can't use air conditioning or fans, because my eyes get dry very easily.
Another problem: my eyes dry up in warm rooms.

Hm.

I am from Texas so yes I like it a little warm but I can stand down to -9 Celsius in shorts and t-shirt.

I wonder why we don't feel the cold so much as some people.

I see people in London walking around in sweatshirts, winter coats and scarves, and still shivering. Then I come along the street in a T-shirt and the hairs on my arms aren't even risen.

Metabolism? I do a lot of exercise.

It may be metabolism, but I weigh 195 lbs and have put on 30 pounds since March, though I'm still roughly the same size. Go figure.

The thing is, is that very overweight friend is often far, far colder than I am. And so is the other one.
I am 107lb and 5ft 5in (that is 48.5kg and 1.65m), so I'm supposed to be shivering in the slightest breeze.
Yet I still go out in my T-shirt when there is ice on the ground...
