    Water, beer, soda.. I prefer them cold. Some prefer room temperature but i assume most prefer chilled. Why is this? Is it evolutionary?



    Especially water. I don't like roon temperature water

    We don't.

    Ever heard of tea? Or coffee? Hot beverages are very popular in a huge range of cultures.

    There is surely a correlation between keeping hydrated and overheating.

    If you're needing to keep hydrated - say, because it's hot - you'll probably be wanting to cool down at the same time.

    But Exchemist makes a good counterpoint. Hot bevys are likely far more prevalent across cultures than cold bevys.
