Christmas Weekend Stuff
Opera says Microsoft is not buying them. That is good Christmas cheer, since every one of these blogs for four years has been written in the Opera browser and I pretty much would rather pull my fingernails off with a pair of pliers than use IE.
A deaf girl hears Jingle Bells for the very first time. Medical advances tickle me. Want to know why I am not worried about wearing my body out with all that sex? Because by the time it is a problem I will be The Bionic Man.
A guy in Alaska has constructed a 16 foot tall snowman. A scary gigantic snowman is just a good story all by itself.
The House of Grand Marnier has created its first new cognac in 200 years. Am I getting one of these for Christmas? Probably not. But am I getting one shipped to me within one week after Christmas, when I buy it myself? You betcha. And I don't even drink. It is that cool.
No, the Pope is not wearing a Santa hat. I agree all Hell broke loose after Vatican II but it hasn't gotten that bad.
Want to track Santa with Tomahawk missiles? Go to this NORAD site and have at it. And my dad used to just threaten to shoot him with a .30-.30. You can do way better than that with an F-16.
The Germans would rather spend Christmas with a tree than with each other. They must have been polling German men about German women.
