Kinda enjoyed the (almost) zero humidity during my 7+ years in Riyadh, (problem there is, since sweat doesn't accumulate on your skin, remembering to drink enough)........not really a fan of high humidity.

BTW, for a somehow related topic, how do people feel about gravity?

Interesting posts on pluses and minuses concerning humidity. Being in Florida for 23 years now kind of gets you used to humidity. I still don't like the ultra high humidity where you can work up a sweat just getting the newspaper in the morning. Prior to Florida we lived in Michigan, and when the humidity gets really high in the summer, the residents aren't used to it and they really suffer. The summer before we moved down here (1990), it was so hot and humid in Michigan that they closed some manufacturing plants and offices for a couple days. It was miserable. We had to move to Florida to get some relief.

Looks like "bug" populations correlate with temperature most, then humidity? http://extension.arizona.edu/sites/e...%20Insects.pdf

LOL! For me - it was sidewalk. Later it was - bottom of pool. Both resulted in a broken nose.
