Wow...this got completely off topic.  I'm surprised someone didnt move this sooner.  I appologize for the topic getting off topic.  I got my answer.

psychosis: I wasn't telling you how to spell it, I was telling people how to look up a word for once in their lifetimes.

And yeah, shorts are great for such as ventilation. However, it can be a tradeoff for more abrasions like if you do. Plus if you're like me and grass makes you itchy, that'll kind of suck.

(P.S. - yes I spelled it with an "h". YOU BEEN TOLD, SON! hahah!)

It is our skin's sensory function, that is responsible. Now, one of the major functions of the skin is to protect the body from anything outside that might harm it. So, the skin senses the grass as something which might cause it harm. There are small receptors on the skin which pick up these sensations and accordingly try to get away from the harming thing. So, it makes you itch, which persuades you to get up and thus, unconsciously, you comply to the body's  senses by getting away from the grass.

I knew that...no really...i did.  No...I didnt.  Lol.  Okay, it seems we've come to the conclusion that shorts are good for hot weather but be careful of scrapes and abrasions and bruises and such.  Pants - people use pants because it suits them more, so they dont get cut or scraped or the like, or if its not that hot outside.

I am completely astounded at the fact that it took us five pages of posts to reach that oh so simple conclusion :o
