This weather is really pleasant for September. Last time we got 30` was 2 weeks ago. This week the highest temperature was 28C I think, it is usually between 22-26C here, no rain or overcast skies at all (well not a lot, I can't really remember when was the last time it rained) this September. What is it like in Italy?

No shit ?!?
I'm not that old, but internet "English" is really too strange for me.

You mean that "for the lulz" means actually "because of snakes"?

It means "for the fun of it" or "for the shits and the giggles"

Because of snakes, that reminds me of our idiom. We say "pro srandu králíkům", which can be translated as "for the fun of rabbits"

This reminds me of an occasion in which he had some Australian guys, two British and one American on a big house party last year, and they were discussing the differences between bogans, rednecks and chavs :p The conclusion is that England lacked a rural-ish version of the chavs and should look for some in Scotland :p

This is probably more special in US and it even has place for a sidewalk. There are plenty of such passes around here :)
