Out of the Blue

Happy Cyber Monday, presuming this is actually as much of a thing as they make it out to be. I guess the good news is that nobody is going to get trampled during a "door-buster" today, though after some of the Black Friday footage I saw, I'm not sure I'd bet against that.

Links: Thanks Ant and Acleacius.
Play: Pinata Hunter 2.
Stories: Cyber Monday Sales Poised to Hit $1.5B.
Man Arrested After Telling Kids Santa Isn't Real. *Spoiler warning*.
Science: Universe, human brain and Internet have similar structures. Thanks Slashdot.
Media: DayZ "The Helicopter" Day04. NSFW.
Speech 101 Prank FINAL. Thanks reddit.
Unusual powerlifter: Using the power of Bounce.

What a boring sales weekend...

Not that I'm one to run out and spend a lot when stuff is marked at big %'s off the MSRP (like every other day of the year), but I looked at the big electronics stores, some computer stores, steam, etc... Really not much I cared for...

Perhaps that just means I have all the stuff I want : )

It doesn't... : )

Also... Love the spoiler warning... Too bad articles are always so badly titled... No one was arrested for telling kids the truth... And this quote makes me crack up - "It was pretty despicable that someone, during this time of the year, would tell kids Santa isn't real - which of course we would argue," Despicable!

As someone that has always been pro honestly, and anti hypocrisy, it's hard to lie to my kid, even if 'it's for their own good'... I also don't think it's bad that kids know that it's their parents that are putting in the effort; not some magical being...
