I caught the WebBuying adware (nastey sonofabitch--and I JUST reimaged my machine) from this site. Maybe it was from questionable advertising on the site but I DID NOT CLICK ON ANYTHING. I closed IE (I know, I know) and BAM, VIRUS everywhere.

Yes, yes yes!

The Venture Brothers is the best show since sliced bread. I can't wait for the new seasons.

Anyways -

Santa Claus is like that TRUTH commercial for cigarettes - we all once thought that cigarettes were good and harmless, but once the real truth came out people didn't want it any more.
But for some twisted religious creative license it got lumped together by some imaginative salespeople (kinda like how buying diamonds for a couple's engagement became the de-facto thing when it was all concocted by clever advertisement and have nothing to do with a person's feeling for the other!) to to put it together with Christmas and turn that very Pagan ritual of Boxing Day when they gave gifts, into this Christian bullshit good-will thing that somehow is only a good deed once a year!
Wouldn't it nice if the Christians were so kind and considerate and giving with gifts people need, every day of the year? Is that too much to ask? Then may be the world would really be a better place and we wouldn't have to create so many monsters like this!
