As a kid, seasons are pretty great. All the hot places also have shitty things associated with them. Hurricanes, earthquakes, 7th-gate-of-hell-looking-wildfires. As an old person, I definitely see saying **** the cold and snow, but I don't mind most of this shit. Also, paid snow days are pretty great.

I bought the Victorinox that's generally considered the best low-cost knife a few years ago ( https://www.amazon.c...0?ie=UTF8&psc=1 ) Ended up getting 6 of them in the delivery box. So I gave four away to family and friends, kept one as a backup. Far from amazing, but significantly better than "knife set" quality. Getting an extra $200 in value has also colored my review.
I'd lend a hand, but it's stuck in the fist and gun position.

I like the 4 seasons too much to ever move south. Also, if I can't physically be in Iowa, I at least have to be in a state bordering Iowa.

4 seasons are the most overrated shit ever, I don't understand why people say they love them so much. Two of the seasons in the midwest ****ing suck, and half of spring is either cold or raining, and fall, with it's ever shortening, increasingly cold days, is a constant reminder that winter is coming.

It's about the variety!

I do think after living somewhere warm for a bit that I would loathe a cold winter after that.

We might as well beat this subject into the ground. I actually love winter. I love snow. Winter is probably my favorite season. Lilac week is probably my 2nd favorite season. Fall 3rd. Summer last. Of course, this is because summer in the Midwest is 100 degrees with 99% humidity. If summer was 75 degrees and sunny, it would bump fall to last.

It's apt that it's called Stockholm syndrome, since Stockholm is cold as **** too.

For someone whose worldview has been perfectly sculpted by minds much greater than yours, your inability to appreciate the true power of the brain is baffling.

I hear good things, especially after the first season. They just lean in and go with it. But I've never seen an episode.

This kind of hyperbole is why I love you Suited. You're one of those people that alternate between blasting the heat in the car to rolling down the windows, aren't you?

my brvy, i wouldn't steer you wrong on tv. the pilot was good, def good enough to keep you watching episode 2. but the end of episode 2 was where we separate the men from the boys. the main character is buying the naming rights to a building in manhattan and he gives a speech and if you dont enjoy that and love him for it you won't like the show. it was amazing stuff.

and i never roll the windows down in my car. that messes up the window tint. but i do generally have it on the highest heat or the lowest AC. i'm not afraid to make a choice.
