I have a tradition on firing up the grill when we butcher deer (november). nothing like eating fresh tenderloin after a long day of hunting.
I agree.. cook on the grill all year long, nothing better then food cooked with charcoal, better taste.
Fahrenheit just makes more sense to most of us. 30s = cold, 40s = chilly, 50s = cool, 60s = decent/might need a windbreaker, 70s = nice, 80s = warm, 90s = hot, etc, etc.
Im from minnesota:
60 above zero: Californians shiver uncontrollably. People in Minnesota sunbathe.
35 above zero: New York landlords finally turn up the heat. People in Minnesota have the last cookout before it gets cold.
Zero: Californians fly away to Mexico. People in Minnesota get out their winter coats.
10 below zero: Hollywood disintegrates. The Girl Scouts in Minnesota are selling cookies door to door.
20 below zero: Washington DC runs out of hot air. People in Minnesota let the dogs sleep indoors.
40 below zero: ALL atomic motion stops. People in Minnesota start saying...'Cold enough fer ya?'
50 below zero: Hell freezes over. Minnesota public schools will open 2 hours late

i think the second good reason is killing mosquitos. the first is the flying sharks with fricken laser beams!
Other than that, if i do anything thats more advanced that basic math, i use a pen and paper, that way i can visually see all my steps.
Their sound might have changed, and they might not be as heavy as they once were, but they still have some wicked guitar licks. Lars is awesome on the drums, and their lyrics are pretty damn good.
If you dont like metallica thats fine, go listen to some pop music.
and for the whole Napster cry, get over it, Metallica stood up for what was right and im glad they did it. just like anyone else that holds a copyright or patent on something, its there to protect you, and when people bypass that and download illegally, something needs to be done.
Also, about a week after DM came out, i googled "Death magnetic CD" and the first link was a download to the whole CD.
If you dont like DM, dont buy it. Metallica Rocks, Pirating is wrong, and You suck.
