not commenting on idiocy, but it occurs to me that the body does alter its temperature in response to illness. a fever sometimes is the result of the body responding to an infection by raising the temperature as an immune response. the discomfort is, to my understanding, because of the difference between the body's actual temperature and the body's "set point" temperature, which itself can vary.
