Default People who wear shorts in freezing weather

I don't get it. It's 5 degrees outside and I saw two guys wearing shorts. I work with one of these guys. He said he is from up north and he is used to it. Righhhhhht ! I don't care where you are from, cold is cold. I think they like the attention when people ask how do you stand it. Oh well , to each his own.

Not today, but I wear shorts in winter. As long as my feet are warm. I am good.
It's not as bad as crocs and socks

For years I was that guy, not because I'm stupid or trying to get attention or prove anything, but because it was really warm in the building I worked in, and I spent a minimal amount of time outside. I'm very hot natured, so in cold weather with the heat running all the time, I needed to wear shorts to be comfortable inside. For the minute or two spent outside, as long as my core stayed warm with a jacket, everything was fine.
I'm sitting inside wearing shorts and a t-shirt right now. When I go outside today, I'll wear a jacket and hat, and if I'm out there for long, I'll put pants on. See how that works? Not everyone is stupid.

I wear shorts in the winter up here, outside. Plenty comfortable as long as the wind isn't blowing too bad. As long as I have my upper body and head covered the legs normally stay comfortable.

It's no more stupid that watching half of southerners wear heavy winter clothing when the temperature is 50 degrees outside.

This is me. I'd rather brave the cold for three minutes walking into a place then be hot all day.

Does her feet stink? I've known some females with stinky feet that would only wear flip flaps when dating to keep their date from finding out their feet stink....

News flash, ALL feet stink, and ALL feet are NASTY!
