He'll probably bomb Canadian troops in Afghanistan after taking speed.
2002-12-24 12:29:09 PM  
Someone should really hack that with a mid-air collision......
2002-12-24 12:29:49 PM  
He'd better bring my goddamn DVD burner.
2002-12-24 12:31:05 PM  
I wouldn't be flying that thing to low over the hood. The homies would love to pop a cap in some fat ass white dude.
2002-12-24 12:31:19 PM  
Your tax dollars at work.
2002-12-24 12:34:01 PM  
He's reported to have weapons of mass destruction.
2002-12-24 12:37:20 PM  

He's gonna need 'em in a couple hours if he continues on his current route.
2002-12-24 12:37:55 PM  
They've been using the same movies since this started in like 98. I really wish they'd get some new ones... my cousins always beg me to show them this.
2002-12-24 12:39:54 PM  
He better speed up or else he's not gonna make it!
2002-12-24 12:40:01 PM  
My 5 year old just about wet herself. Thank you poster!
2002-12-24 12:52:50 PM  
Wow, Thulcandra, seriously!
2002-12-24 12:58:02 PM  

Your tax dollars at work.

Both and original and insightful post...

If you want to get pissed off at government spending, you're barking up the wrong tree.
2002-12-24 12:58:48 PM  
Oh goody. Another Real Player site. I'll just spend the rest of the day downloading this week's version on my coal-fired modem. Bah.

I was going to complain but then I read decaf bit, and now im just chuckling to myself.
2002-12-24 01:09:05 PM  
Same here, Decaf333, my six year old is dancing around singing
"I have PROOF! I have PROOF!"
Well worth the tax bucks to make my princess smile!
2002-12-24 01:13:04 PM  
Reactron, great point. I spent hours downloading realplayer on my 28.8 at home over the summer, and now it tells me I have to get a more recent version to view or listen to anything. Fat chance.
2002-12-24 01:15:18 PM  
Decaf333 and Hau'oli Haole
That is so cool.
2002-12-24 01:21:12 PM  
Of course, she also realized that Hawaii is the very last place on the line.
2002-12-24 01:25:01 PM  
You know Santa Clause was just on CNN a few hours ago, if he is who was delivering presents to the other side of the world where it's already Christmas day? hu? hu? hu?
2002-12-24 01:25:44 PM  
Why couldn't they have had this thing 13 years ago? I'd have shiat myself.
2002-12-24 01:26:58 PM  
Mikey_B - Santa's helper was on CNN. Cause, y'know, he's got that cloning thing figured out.
2002-12-24 01:31:54 PM  
i looked at their "santa cam" and they had that same exact animation last year
2002-12-24 01:33:10 PM  
Grrr...why the damn Real player? I hate that spyware ladened piece of junk streamer.

*sigh* I suppose I will have to install it again so the kids can see Santa.
2002-12-24 01:36:43 PM  
That fat bastard knocked my best friend off the roof.

She just came back to check again. Ran off screaming "He's closer!"
2002-12-24 01:43:39 PM  
All the naysayers on ignore. This is always cool. When I was a kid, they had periodic updates on local TV; my brothers and I would have loved this! For all you "crappy Realplayer" and "tax dollars at work" Scrooges go Bah! Humbug! somewhere else. If you've ever spent any quality time with small children at Christmas, the reactions you get from this kind of stuff is priceless.
2002-12-24 01:51:02 PM  
*waa* I don't wanna download realplayer.. why couldn't they use micrcrap windowsplayer or sumpting???

*looks for coal*
2002-12-24 01:55:16 PM  
Yeah nothing quite like getting a falsified reaction from a child that you've lied to and instilled false beliefs in. I guess this explains why a religious holiday has been turned into nothing more than a giant marketing ploy. Gotta get that false joy by watching a confused child somehow now don't you.
2002-12-24 01:56:51 PM  
Oh get a life CrashnBurn, it's not like Jeebus was actually born on 12/25 anyway which means the xian version of the holiday was nothing but a big fraud to begin with.
2002-12-24 02:00:24 PM  
I never said the holiday wasn't a fraud, and I'm not suggesting this as a religious nut because I'm not. It just seems rather interesting that everyone gets such joy out of confusing and lying to children that could not possibly no better. Perhaps you should give them the facts and let them decide their own beliefs?
2002-12-24 02:04:27 PM  

Anyone else working a full day today, or is it only me?


2002-12-24 02:04:52 PM  
CrashnBurn - Been telling kids there was a fat guy in a red suit that brought toys for years, most of 'em turned out all right.
2002-12-24 02:07:52 PM  
This is pretty stupid.....Santa doesn't exist. I could be wrong cause it's along the same lines as that Bin Laden thing. I can't prove it.....YET. But let it be known that I'm giving up my job to search for that tubby bastard that never brought me the Red Ryder BB gun I was always asking for when I was a kid......
2002-12-24 02:08:51 PM  
Canes98: Yup - need to provide 24x7 tech support to all those people who are on vacation and not filing tickets.
2002-12-24 02:11:22 PM  
Canes98: Back when I was working &ltcough>, I used to love working through the holidays. Xmas day was a corp. holiday, and we ususally got released from our cages early Xmas eve (my family celebrates the Eve in the Evening, so no prob there).

The advantages of working through the holidays:

1) Almost everyone takes vacation time, so no one is at work, so no one expects anything to get done. This is great news for you, working Xmas eve, because you can sit there and read Fark all day and generally goof off, nobody's going to notice. Goof away, goof away, goof away all, and to all a good night.

2) If you actually have a work ethic (I lost mine in a card game) this is a great time to get things done, since there's no one around to call meetings, bug you with questions and other such general BS. Hack away, etc.

The key is to take the week after 01-Jan off - that's when everyone comes back with a big pile of work on their desk and starts running around like their hair is on fire. That's the best time to get the fark out of Dodge.
2002-12-24 02:13:08 PM  
Diogenes -

I saw from your profile that you are in Orlando and doing TS. Would that happend to be in Heathrow?

For the lil' Farkers, download Real Player to watch this and get free spyware! But, shhh, don't tell your dad, this will be our little secret.
2002-12-24 02:28:05 PM  
If they government can makes sites that handle that much traffic, why can't all the boobie posts be like that?
2002-12-24 02:31:49 PM  
That video showed Santa with Rudolph.... Rudolph the red nosed reindeer was a creation of the department store Montgomery Ward as an advertizing gimmick back in 1939.

Does this make me a grinch?
2002-12-24 02:36:26 PM  
But... but... my parents told me there WAS no Santa Claus!

My entire world is being turned upside-down! Nooooo!
2002-12-24 02:41:46 PM  
It's just fun for the kids. No reason (CrashnBurn) To get you X-mas egg nog all tied in knot. Sheesh.
2002-12-24 02:50:28 PM  
She actually bounces when the map shows movement... its really cute.
2002-12-24 02:53:22 PM  

Just wait till you have kids. The joy of being drunk and setting up a barbie mansion with 10,000 pieces at 2 in the morning is worth the joy when you see their faces at 3 in the morning. Ill by that plane ticket to see you tell your child that no santa exsists.

Perhaps you should give them the facts and let them decide their own beliefs?

Or you could just let them be children.
