I think it was Sweden that had this phrase at one point. "If you're cold, you're not working hard enough."

Sweden also has "There are no bad weather. Just bath clothing".

I love wearing my bath clothing outside in Sweden!

As a Puget Sound (Seattle area) native... that sounds about right. There's a reason we love flannel here!

Singapore's hot all year round anyway and it doesn't get any cooler unless the monsoon season decides to show up

OP has never worked customer service in a southern hot place and it shows.

Or a place like India, it doesn't seem cold or laid back there based on some of the train videos i've seen at least.

Are northerners actually more hurried than people in the south?

by Anonymous 7 months ago

No. This is odd generalizing nonsense.

I think it applies to me. When I stayed in Virginia for one summer, I was the one over going over 40. Everyone else took their time.

So why don't they slow down when it's hot in the summer then?

Rushing to get to air conditioning.

Everyone in the Southern Hemisphere is confused right now.

You have no idea how right you are, like im serious the productivity is even higher in cold nations and there an argument saying that the reason that first world is mainly in the north region is because we had more reason to advance to point we could travel to the warm south and conquer. Like dude, you have no idea how much the temperature affects your life and your history

Hookworms in the south

This is where the stereotypical "slow" southern drawl came from. You all had hookworms...

I love the story of it. Rockefeller and a team of drs went down to cure people and they were met with anger. How dare you accuse us of being filthy and having worms Lol Grew up in Texas and had many babysitters as a kid. The oldest ones who grew up in the south were very adamant about short fingernails, washing hands before meals, cooking food properly Philanthropy is a beautiful thing

There may be some potential veracity to this as the physics of contraction and expansion from thermal conditions could cause the distance between synapses to increase causing a slight delay in neural transmission speeds.

I just think people are nicer in the south.
