Mmm… I’ll agree up to a point. Yes, the perception of cold and hot is relative … but as I pointed out to a Northern-born co-worker once when she complained about the cold weather here in NC, “seventeen degrees is seventeen degrees no matter where you are”. Same holds for 100. But I’ll agree with you that 100 degrees here in NC is significantly less comfortable than 100 degrees in, say, Barstow, CA. That’s what humidity will do for ya!

And I find no end of amusement in the fact that the people who seem to complain the loudest about the “cold” here are those who migrated from north of the Mason Dixon line.
