    ok its not really an emergency but it sounds cool doesn't it :p so anyways it just kinda dawned on me that mine skips alot of numbers it. Its one of the ones where you wind it up and slide the weight around. Like for example it skips from 144-152 is there just no kind of BPM in beteen there that I should be worried about? or maybe I need to get a digital one or something.

    You mean you've got an old Tacktell metronome. They are not very steady after a while because it is due to the mecanism. And as far as having the choice to go up and down by one increment is very important.
    So,get a digital one.They are cheap and accurate.

    Impish dwarvelike creatures wearing red boots and green tunics that live on the underground, usually carry a fishing rod.

    I thought they were little short guys who work out a lot, are dapper dressers, and who keep their condos clean, but somehow still dig chicks.
