Your avatar really makes your car look like a Viper, and no unless you're temporarily trying to diag your coolant system or hot-lapping your car everywhere.

Your car will stay in open loop for quite a bit longer while warming it up, which will diarrhea all over your mileage, if you care.

Plus your heat will suck in the winter. Just google answers it and you'll see why people do and why they don't. The stat is there for a reason.

+1 on the viper vote

and ...to add to the comments above:
keep your thermostat, faster you get you engine up to temp, the better.
Also, cold oil is at a lower viscosity like 5 in the 5w-30.

It will be trying to heat up all the coolant not just the partial amount inside the engine and heater core.
Normal op. Temp is around 12'o clock, mine runs at 1230 (east bay gets similar temps to your place ;-)
