In springtime, yes, when it gets up to 48.
In the autumn (i.e., now) it's much too cold.

If you remain unsure, go outside without your pants and find out. . .

“You see, I think drugs have done some good things for us. I really do. And if you don't believe drugs have done good things for us, do me a favor. Go home tonight. Take all your albums, all your tapes and all your CDs and burn them. 'Cause you know what, the musicians that made all that great music that's enhanced your lives throughout the years were rrreal ****ing high on drugs. The Beatles were so ****ing high they let Ringo sing a few tunes. 'John, get in here, Ringo's got a song about a yellow tambourine or somthing.' ”
