You've all probably seen this before, but it's still cool (though if I was a neighbor I'm pretty sure all those flashing lights would be grounds for justifiable homicide).

NORAD? What do they do? Track the trajectory of Santa by radar? :D

Yeah. They seriousely fucking 'track' him and put 'updates' on their websites. It's fucking ridiculous.

Theres an idea right there.  Take a few hundred of the little SOB's on a day out.

"Mr Army man, what are those red dots following Santa." then 'santa' disappears off radar.

Seriously, rig up one animation, years of therapy...

I guess you don't get Robot Chicken over there. They actually had a sequence like that.
"Titans are the God-Machines of the Adeptus Mechanicus. Imagine a city. Now imagine that city is angry at you, can walk, and has continent leveling weapons aimed at you. And is inhabited by more things that hate you. You have a rough idea of a Titan."

What's wrong with NORAD doing something cool for the kids? It's not like they really are using the multi-billion dollar radar systems, and multi-million dollar aircraft, to track and guide a fictional man. All they do, is have a fun little animated "radar" tracker on a website, and quick radio station updates.

^^^ Seriously. Oh noes, they're wasting our precious tax dollars on a flash animation that probably takes one of their techies about two minutes to make!

^^^ I love taffeta!  Satin-faced or matte, especially.  It's a beautiful material but people can go so, so wrong with it.

A man after my own heart (or lack thereof). Unfortunately he's also an idiot.

‘Santa died for your MasterCard’
Man nails Claus to cross to protest commercialism of Christmas

updated 1 hour, 21 minutes ago
BREMERTON, Wash. - Art Conrad has an issue with the commercialism of Christmas, and his protest has gone way beyond just shunning the malls or turning off his television.

The Bremerton resident nailed Santa Claus to a 15-foot crucifix in front of his house.

"Santa has been perverted from who he started out to be," Conrad said. "Now he's the person being used by corporations to get us to buy more stuff."

A photo of the crucified Santa adorns Conrad's Christmas cards, with the message "Santa died for your MasterCard."

The display is also Conrad's way of poking fun at political correctness. He believes people do not express their feelings because they are afraid of what other people might think.

His neighbors found the will to express their feelings this past week. Some were offended but many were just curious.

Jake Tally walked by on Friday and chuckled, but did not pretend to understand the message.

"I don't really know what to think. I know it's about God but Santa has nothing to do with it," he told the Kitsap Sun newspaper.

On the one hand, this will piss off Christians and possibly scar small children for life. That's the good part.

On the other hand, this guy obviousely has no fucking clue what the history of Santa has been for the last 150 years or so. Santa is the Jesus of capitalism.

So I applaud his offending of Christians and mental abuse of children, but he still get's to have a little chat with Dr. House:
