    The Thermometer Method. Is that the way you do things?

    Is that where you look at the thermometer to decide if you're going to that automatic alarm or lift assist at 2am in January?
    Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.

    Always has been. You put water on the fire until the thermometer drops below the point of sustained combustion and you are done. Pretty simple really.

    Aggressive does not have to equal stupid.
