Because when using a punch ballot you need people that actually KNOW that punching a ballot means making a hole and removing the chad.

So when designing something for the lowest common denominator, ie; idiots,
you get the basics for simplicity, and the simpler it is the more fraud involved.

Well, I wasn't referring to that... Think of it a bit more philisophically.

Why?

Simple. You simply cannot disprove the reason of 'why?' as to produce a contradicting argument only produces a new questioning of 'why?'.

Because, if you're religious that is, your God of choice ordained it so, just as she/he/or it ordained every thing else (including render speeds (especially the ones with lots of ray recursion/refraction in them) ). Personally, being a pagan, I think it's all bollocks. Still with Christmas only two months away 'why' is a very apposite and timely question to postulate right now.

Pagan eh? Why Oak? Why not after Winter Solstice can't there be a Pine God? You know, bringing the freshness back :D

Pagans invented Christmas (well OK not the word obviously, but the festivity) to celebrate the turn of winters tide, it fell about a week after the shortest day and heralded the return of the sun and the certainty of the spring to follow. Only a bunch of religious geeks (much like religious geeks every where) didn't like being upstaged by this popular event/piss-up, and ludicrously moved the date of birth of their religious savior by some several months and declared a new celebration to replace it (by compulsory force if need be, being good Christians) and decreed this event be called 'Christ Mass' or Christmas which has bugger all to do with anything.

You missed Holly and wreaths :D

You make a good argument though
Christmas equals
Winter solstice = pagan
Christmass = poorly arranged christian date to coincide with pagan ritual
Santa = Cokacola

So why oh why do we all know this and still spend Billions???

Is this the 'why' giger really seeks? or is he refering to the single sock left in the washer?

Santa = Cokacola


Well, yeah, but also... Santa aka Santaclaus is from 'Sinter klaas' in Dutch, and then again, from Saint Nicholas, patron saint of children and of course, sailors, and he travels with a whole boat filled with black 'helpers' from spain...

So Santa is a racist coke bottle. Simple. That's why.

I believe those helpers are black because they come through the chimney. (That's what my mother told me anyway.)

I'd never heard of 'black helpers from Spain' before, But, that's a remarkable peice of reportage there exception and asks more questions than it answers.

The main question in your photo ( presumably taken with a long focal length from a distant lapland woodland clearing), Would be why does this papal santa have a golden budda on his shelf?

AND, why is Santa based in Lapland, when the country itself is clearly named after a strip joint?

Exception

:) No, he's based in spain.
I think the Budda is from the home Santa was holding up at the time.
The chimney storey is what mothers tell their unsuspecting children.

Hmm, maybe you're right. She also told me recently that 'Sinterklaas' doesn't exist. So much for her credibility.

My mom would wash my mouth out with soap for saying bad words, until one day I got smart and went and took a bite out of a bar of soap, before she could get the chance. I call that reverse pyshcology x 2.


We hates you

When you say we, are you referring to you and your cat? Cause, if you are, don't you know that cats hate everybody? :devil: They just tolerate us humans, because we humor them. :D Oh, and feed them.

Actually, I had a cat once. Well, more than once, but this guy sticks out in my mind the most. His name was Garfield, because he looked exactly like the cartoon version, he was cool, he wasn't that fat, but he was sassy, and, most of all, he loved Lasanga (Me, too).

You might have told us before, but if you did, I forgot. What's your kitty's name?

The current avatar is Os-ka, last one J-D, next one (at 2000) will be Scare-D. (Well, it's what we write in Christmas cards). They're all more like dogs than cats, they follow you for walks (they actualy wait at the door for you going out), go to bed when we go to bed and they play with balls and furry toys. They're all strays so we must have an 'oddballs welcome' sign somewhere :D

What??? No Group Photos. Have you ever seen the pictures of dogs playing poker. Maybe you could do something like that with your cats. I got it. You could have them sailing the ocean blue on a Cat-a-ma-ran. :D

I know that was bad, but it's the best I've got, for now.

Wait, maybe you could have them model the latest fashions in a Cat-a-logue. Or, have them dress up as Tibetians at Cat-man-du, or is that Katmandu. Oh, it's getting deep in here. :jester:
