What if all the other life bearing planets are these mild Mediterranean climates with no seasons no tectonic plates and no intense weather? what if several species including humans land on a world and the humans are all SCOREI Earth like worldl Lets get exploring before we get out competear And the planet starts offing the other aliens right and et electrid storms hypothermia tornadoes and the humans are just there counting seconds between riashes having snowball fights and just surviving To paraphrase one of my favorite bits of a humans are awesome fiction megapost you don't know you're from a Death World until you leave it For a ton of reasons I really like the idea of Earth being Space Australa crazy-pages Alen Tm sorry what did you just say your comfortable temperature range is?
