Re: "Sleet" Discussion

Suckers.

In Australia our Christmas season is all 35 degree days (That's 95 F for those 300 million in the U S of A).

So instead of sleet, we get to burn the soles of our feet off on pavement.

Re: "Hats" discussion

Are 2 hats better than one?
Would the classhole-inducing qualities of a black hat be cancelled out upon wearing a second?

EDIT #2: BTW, Love the new shirt in the store!

I'm actually listening to DI.fm right now so it made me giggle, twas a bit of a harsh assessment however.
