QUOTE OF THE DAY : History will be kind to me for I intend to write it. - Winston Churchill

SONG OF THE DAY : The Killers - Andy, You're A Star

LINK OF THE DAY : It's just not this guys day.

All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players.

"He knows if you've been sleeping, he knows if you're awake, he knows if you've been bad or good so be good for goodness sake!"

What a load of crap. Santa Claus was once the tool of parents. Back in the day every Christmas song having to do with Jolly Old Saint Nick had to do with scaring children into obedience for fear of not getting presents. It's kind of ridiculous if you think about it... I mean if kids actually took the time to really think about it, things might be different.

"Now little Jimmy, no being naughty or the obese, bearded, immortal man who lives at the North Pole won't give you presents for no other reason than the fact that it's Jesus' birthday."

If it's the supposed birthday of Jesus Christ then why isn't he getting presents?
December 25th actually isn't big JC's birthday, nobody really knows when that is. But December 25th was a big time in the Roman Empire. It was the week in which the people of Rome would pay homage to Saturn, the God of Agriculture! OOOH! Watch out for him!
When Christianity started to catch on, in order to convert more people, they conveniently made Christmas (Christ's B-Day Mass I guess) take place on the same day as the big Saturn celebration. Apparently it worked.

But I digress, I was speaking of Santa Claus. I pose this question to you, if you were immortal, and lived at the North Pole(Sounds like Superman), would you really spend your time making toys for ungrateful little shits?

I for one would use my unholy army of elves for some nefarious purpose... Call it Clauskrieg. The Northern Hemisphere would be mine within a year.

Anyways, it's July and I'm talking about Christmas for some reason. We all know X-mas, as the lazy have come to abbreviate it; is just a tool of corporations. It's more a celebration of some fat hermit than some crazy prophet. Yes, I just made fun of Santa's weight problem and Jesus' well known insanity. It's kind of a pointless holiday. I like getting and giving presents... but hell the cost in depression and suicide is actually quite disturbing... more people kill themselves at Christmas than any other time of the year. All because some corporation says we have to be all happy and together on some bullshit holiday. It's a shame.

I'm not going anywhere with this, it's merely a chain of thought I felt like writing down.

Speaking of Christ. I've heard of Jews for Jesus... But Klingons for Christ?
What a world we live in.
