Christmas
 
Over the years I've gotten real tired of the Christmas season. The complete commercialization just continues to get worse. Now this year the stores are opening Thanksgiving evening, getting black Friday started early. Fighting in the aisles at Best Buy over TVs, pushing matches over Barbie dolls in Walmart, I've just about given up with the American public.

Is this sort of nonsense happening in your country, or is it only America that's full of self centered idiots?

Mankins are lumps of cold, dead plastic. But that doesn't mean they don't turn me on.
With friends like these, who needs mankins? I do, that's who.

I refuse to participate in any pre-or-post-Christmas sales! Always have. The craziness that goes on at the Boxing Day sales here is just not worth it. My life is too short to spend hours waiting in some damn queue, just to have to shoulder and elbow old ladies out of the way when the door opens. Screw that! No amount of money saved is worth that sort of nonsense.

Reminds me of the times, way back when, when petrol prices started to go up rapidly. On weekends, select petrol stations around Sydney would offer half-price fuel - a publicity stunt of sorts. And people would line up for hours, just to save a few bucks. *They would waste half of their weekend, just to save $20!* How does that make any sense? We are here for a short time, then take a very, very long dirt nap! Why would I want to waste the limited time that I have on something so unimportant? ???

Hi Case

The reason I posted was because the mega sale(s) ARE HAPPENING ON THANKSGIVING!

On another note, the retard Ferguson demonstrating idiots shut down the Westlake Center in downtown Seattle last night. It's the retail center of downtown Seattle where the old refurbished department stores are. Last night was the tree lighting.

I also refuse to participate in any of those crazy sales. I'm pretty sure I'd get knocked to the ground and then get trampled to death.


Several years ago, my mom got fed up with the commercial absurdity of Christmas. She said that she already had everything that she ever needed, and she felt uncomfortable receiving expensive gifts when there are so many people in the world who don't even have the basic necessities of life. So she made a secret committment (which I soon found out about Icon_wink ) to determine the amount of money spent on her gifts, and donate an equivalent amount of money to desperately needy individuals. After my dad and I discovered what she had been doing, we made the same pledge. We've been doing it ever since.

This resulted in a rather unexpected turn of events. ... Since I didn't want my mom & dad to have to donate large amounts of their limited income, I found myself giving much more thought into their gifts, rather than simply spending lots of $$$. While they were committed and willing to donate as much money as I spent, they also found that the gifts I ended up giving them made them much happier than simply receiving a new wide screen television, or some other fancy do-dad that they really didn't need/want. Similarly, their gifts to me were carfully thought out, since they also knew that I'd be making a donation from funds that would otherwise go towards purchasing a house.

So, for years now, I avoid getting trampled to death in search of a deal for a wide-screen TV. And instead, I pay closer attention to my mom & dad. I'll be able to make them genuinely happy without spending a lot of money, and they will be able to acknowledge their good fortune by donating a modest amount from their savings. And I'll do the same.

... It will be another good year.

I used to be a lumberjack.

JB, I don't think I've got Christmas/birthday/anything gifts for the best part of 20 years, except from Cha, who buys something cheap just to piss me off because then I'm getting a gift, and my mum when she was still around, because she always did.

For at least that long I've been telling people not to bother, but if they really want to buy something, give a village in Afghanistan a goat or a village in Pakistan a well, or something. Whatever, either keep the money, or use it for something useful.

And for this, I get told I'm selfish when I explain this philosophy to people. That I'm refusing to allow people the joy of giving. Which, clearly, I'm not, it's just not to me, it's to people who need stuff. #peopledomyheadin

Mic, I've been doing the same for the better part of 20 years also. Giving to the needy contributes to economy as much as buying some thing useless or underutilized. I think JBs family certainly have their priorities straight.

Our church has done something similar for the last several years at Christmas...





Every year we've been able to give to a different cause. It's certainly more valuable than spending money on presents and other consumerist junk.

You aren't missing much at all. You won't believe how hard the kids have been working to get that one fish too.... something like 6 months. They're happy about it, though!

The deal was this... we had a big pile of those colored marbles (Spree) and an empty fish bowl. Every time we caught the kids doing something nice or kind for each other we would put one marble into the fish bowl. Once they had gotten through all the marbles we would get a fish for them. It turned out there were way more marbles than are actually in the bowl now, Jamie misjudged a bit on the estimate. Icon_smile

Mainly we wanted the kids to be nice to each other, and neither Jamie or I wanted a pet. Icon_cheesygrin

... so you already had the bowl and the colored marbles.
All the kids had to do is get the fish !!! Not one of them was devious enough to figure out how to sneek a little goldfish into the house? What kind of kids are you raising there? You need to expose them to Mic.

So, in other words, it took six months of good deeds for the Nalos children to amass enough marbles to earn a single goldfish. How many marbles equals one goldfish? Did the kids know what their target was (e.g. how long they'd have to be nice to each other)? Were there different redemption points ranging, say, from goldfish to grouper depending upon how many marbles wound up in the bowl in a fixed amount of time?

Does the fish have a name?

I think there were about 200 marbles.

Yes, they could see how many marbles were in the bowl and how many were left in the pile.

Bowl size limited fish size, we were pretty clear it was either going to be a beta or a goldfish.

No time performance component.

The kids have brought in their own pets before (snakes, frogs, bugs, caterpillars, captured in the back yard mainly by Ashlyn) but those were all very clearly temporary pets... either self limited by mortality or by the need to let them go since they couldn't be kept in the house.

And we definitely did not want to expose them to Mic. Icon_smile


As you can see, neither Jamie or I wanted a pet. And the kids wanted one badly. They have already proposed buying a hamster cage and then having the opportunity to fill the cage with wood shavings, one flake at a time. Icon_rolleyes

Good deal for you and Jamie. They won't have enough wood shavings in the cage until they're all in grad school.

BTW, may I please have Ashlyn's email address. I want to suggest she ask for a capybara instead of a hamster.

Martin just updated his Christmas list! Pigs are becoming passe, but who has both a pig and a capabara? Time to step up your game, Martin.

Bonus: at least you'll still have one surviving pet after the Making Images backyard BBQ get together.

"As reported in Scientific American, October, 1994: Lots of capybara meat is/was eaten by Colombians and Venezuelans who appealed to the Vatican during the 16th century in order to be allowed to eat capybaras during Lent. The pope back then declared the capybara to be a fish; according to a 1991 survey, approximately 400 tons of capybara are eaten each year. Since a capybara weighs about 100 lbs, if one capybara yields 25 lbs of edible stuff, that's about 32,000 capybaras per year down the collective hatch."

Come on, capybara or piranha, same difference.

Mankins are lumps of cold, dead plastic. But that doesn't mean they don't turn me on.
With friends like these, who needs mankins? I do, that's who.
I love pinging my junk with a rubber band. Dr Snip taught me how.
I lead an underworld cult of mankin people.

Ah, but it's latin name, Hydrochoerus, means water pig. Close enough for the pope.

I demand a second opinion! According to that STUPID test I'm 50% hipster.
