Please don't edit this question (seriously). You have all the information you need to figure out where I am from. But I am going to be generous and give you some hints gradually if needed.

First hint at 06-16 17:38 : It is cold here.

    $\begingroup$ You're posting questions during the Germany - Poland football game at Euro 2016 so you are not from Germany nor Poland. $\endgroup$ – Marius Jun 16 '16 at 20:31
  • $\begingroup$ Good guess hahaha. $\endgroup$ – newzad Jun 16 '16 at 20:31
  • $\begingroup$ I just realized that I misread your question (or arguably it was poorly worded). I interpreted it such that you could answer the question without the hint. So I concluded that the answer must be buried somewhere within your SE profile which was a deep dark rabbit hole of mathematics... $\endgroup$ – TTT Jun 16 '16 at 21:01
  • $\begingroup$ @TTT Actually I gave the hint intentionally to complete the question in order to make it funny. $\endgroup$ – newzad Jun 16 '16 at 21:02

    $\begingroup$ @GordonK if you mouse over the times it gives you exact datetime info (though I believe there is a scenario where short successive edits will merge into one edit so exact time might be a bit off), but regardless I agree with all your points. Also the question is literally where is X user located based of timezone differences and climate. That is not a very good basis for a puzzle in the first place as it involves a lot of guesswork. Also this is relevant meta.puzzling.stackexchange.com/questions/5005/… $\endgroup$ – Gordon Allocman Jun 17 '16 at 13:03

I'm going to change my guess and say you're from:

Somewhere in Greenland Newfoundland

Reasoning:

Your first hint is posted on the same day and 6 1/2 hours ahead of where I am (based on a 24 hour clock). This puts where you're from at UTC-2.5. Link to where I got this answer. And Newfoundland is north enough to be considered cold.

EDIT: I think I got it. Otherwise, I'm still thinking about other ways to support my guess.

  • $\begingroup$ No, I am not from Greenland. I could be from Patagonia also. $\endgroup$ – newzad Jun 16 '16 at 20:27
  • $\begingroup$ I think since his time is -2.5 UTC. Which isn't a time zone as far as I know. Maybe I am wrong though $\endgroup$ – Jeremy Jun 16 '16 at 20:30
  • $\begingroup$ Actually, I noticed that too...there's a few half hour time zones but not UTC-2.5 $\endgroup$ – aznbanana9 Jun 16 '16 at 20:37
  • $\begingroup$ You are close though. $\endgroup$ – newzad Jun 16 '16 at 20:38
  • $\begingroup$ Congratulations, you've got it. $\endgroup$ – newzad Jun 16 '16 at 20:52

I'm guessing you are from:

Italy

It's a pretty thin argument, but:

You posted this question with a link to an Italian site: https://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/113810/how-to-cite-an-online-brochure

Though I don't think this fits your hint as it's currently 22 degrees Celsius there and that isn't a normal definition of "cold".
