Bored out of your mind? Have an irresistible thirst for something exciting to do? Drowning in dullness? You won't be after reading this list.
I am absolutely exhausted! I hope you have something to do now, have fun!
Today, I'll be interviewing, the one and only Santa Claus!
S stands for Santa.
Me: Hi there, Mr. Claus. Thanks for being here.
S: My pleasure. Well, it's the holiday season, and there's a lot to talk about.
Me: Are you ready for Christmas? It's just 3 days left!
S: Of course. This year, I have a great schedule, and guess what? my elves found out how to make some great machines.
Me: So, speaking of that, how are the elves doing with the gifts?
S: It's great! I've had an elf, Snowball, create a factory and thousands of presents are made with just a push of a button.
Me: Wow, that's great. Have any kids sent you letters lately?
S: I've had a few, but ever since one of my elves set up an email account, kids only seem to want so send me emails!
Me: How are your reindeer?
S: They all are finally getting along with Rudolph and have stopped teasing him. Although Blitzen still despises Rudolph, the other reindeer are trying to calm her down.
Me: So, do you actually know when each child is asleep and awake? Do you really have a naughty or nice list?
S: Can you keep a secret? I can't actually watch every kid in the world all the time. I have so many elves that each elf just watches one child the whole year. And the naughty or nice list does exist, but nobody ever sees it. Even I don't know who's on it!
Me: So what are you looking forward to this Christmas?
S: Hmm... probably just stopping by at houses and giving gifts to those kids who are going to be so happy in the morning!
Me: What do you plan to do after Christmas?
S: I'll just hang out with the Easter Bunny. He told me that he needed help with decorating the eggs. And Mrs. Claus promised me some excellent turkey on Christmas day.
Me: What's something you want for Christmas?
S: I do wish I had a new suit. But maybe not a red one. How about a violet one? And I need some white hair dye. This beard doesn't stay pearly white with no effort!
Me: What's your least favourite thing about Christmas?
S: I guess it would have to be the last minute rush on December 24th morning, where all the elves and I are packing up the very last presents and getting coal for the naughty ones.
Me: Is there anything else you dislike about delivering gifts?
S: Well, probably that the families always leave out milk and cookies for me. I could use something a little healthier, maybe like carrots or apples. I'm really trying to lose some fat. And also, I hate kids who don't believe in me. I'm as real as the tooth fairy!
Me: Er... about that...
Christmas! That means decorating Christmas trees, cookies, lot's of presents, and of course, hope Krampus doesn't attack you with branches!
That's right! You might not have heard of Krampus, but children in Austria are absolutely terrified of him. He is said to be a Christmas Devil who does, in fact, beat naughty children with branches. Christmas can be weird in some parts of the world. Let's see what's happening this Christmas...
On the Dinner Table
In South Africa, the table's loaded with Emperor Moth caterpillars. Deep fried, of course. And in Japan, KFC is what they dig in to. And in Slovakia, the loksa pudding isn't for eating. The oldest man of the family throws a spoonful of it at the ceiling.
Santa Claus is here
There's no Santa Claus in Italy, instead Italian children wait for Befana. She's a friendly witch who delivers presents on the fifth of January. Netherlands's Santa Claus is like ours, except for the fact that he has a side kick called Zwarte Piet who kidnaps bad children and takes them to Spain. That's way worse then coal.
The Christmas Tree
Germans hide a pickle in their Christmas tree. The first child to find it gets a small present. According to Ukrainians, using tinsel and bells to decorate the Christmas tree is getting old. Artificial spiders and spider webs are what they use.
Hope you liked the third Christmas post this month! There's one every day till the 25th!
As the weather turns nippy and frosty, as the wind starts to become colder, evergreen wreaths hang on doors, Christmas trees are decorated and start to sparkle, you know that can only mean one thing!
It's finally December!
December, the last month of the year, red and green decorations and bells are draped over walls to remind you that Christmas is around the corner! Just twenty-five days until a visit from Santa. And a new year is just a month away. This year has been so quick! 2015 is just 30 days away from ending. Time to get out my New Year's Resolution List.
Here are some festive jokes to get you into the spirit of Christmas:

ATTENTION! THIS POST MIGHT BE DISTURBING. NOT RECOMMENDED FOR THE FAINT-HEARTED. BRACE YOURSELF FOR SOME FREAKY PICTURES. TO CALM YOURSELF AND NOT GET NIGHTMARES, TAKE A LOOK AT THIS VIDEO.
I glance at the clock, which displays 5 am. 1 more hour till success. I flip through the surveillance cameras, making sure that the wretched animatronics were not out to get me. My shivering gradually decreasing, I work up the courage to open the door. It's a risk, but my battery is running low, and unless I reduce my power usage, I could come to a horrible end. As the door opens, I start to feel faint and regret my choice. But there's nobody there so I turn around and head back to my desk. I stop when I hear pacing footsteps. I swivel around to see a freakish brown figure looming at the doorway. Its eyes are snake-like and deadly, glowing dangerously. As it lunges forward, I shriek and...
Close the game window.
Five Nights At Freddy's has been all the rage. There have been sequels, parodies, even remakes, so I decided to see what all the fuss was about. Little did I know that it was a rash decision.
Paste this link into your browser to play a version of FNAF, since the original one is not free.
When I saw the menu page of the game, I was considering choosing a different game that wasn't so nightmarish. But I clicked on play.
After a brief introduction and vague instructions, I find myself in a dark, gloom-ridden room.The Security Office. After switching between the different cameras, I observe the characters. Foxy is nowhere to be found, but Bonnie, Chica and Freddy himself are assembled on the stage, eyeing me with a blood-curdling smile. Shaky, I go back to the office and notice that my battery charge was slowly reducing. I had to open the door or all my energy would slowly slip away.
Looking at the security cameras again, I find that Bonnie, the bunny with a menacing look and ghostly eyes, has left his (or is it her? I never know) position and is creeping around the halls. Breaking a cold sweat, I flicker through the other cameras. Jumping when I see Chica, the female animatronic chicken with macabre purple eyes and a monstrous, devious grin staring into the cameras, I feel the hair on the back of my neck rise, and a chill runs down my spine.
The animatronics were all coming for me. Foxy, the fox with the luminous glow in his eyes was peeking around the door, Chica was peeping in curiously at the window, Bonnie was roaming the halls, waiting for me, while the infamous Freddy was right around the corner. As a wail escaped my lips, the lights flickered off and Freddy's deadly eyes were at the door. His face pops up on my screen suddenly, opening his mouth to reveal sharp teeth, just right to bite my head off. I scream and cover my eyes, closing the game before I do.
And that was how the most horrific day of my life went.
Alright, maybe I exaggerated that a bit.
It's human nature to enjoy paradoxes. That's why I am going to give you some perplexing paradoxes that will baffle you.
5. Paradox of Court
A lawyer is taught by a teacher. After he finishes his training, the teacher says to him- "You will pay me after you have won your first case." However, the lawyer refuses. The teacher is furious and decides to take the matter to court. If the lawyer wins the case, that means he will not have to pay. But he has to pay when he wins his first case, so technically, he is obliged to pay. If the teacher wins, he will have to pay, but since he is only supposed to pay after he WINS his first case, so he doesn't have to pay, right?
Contradictory Question: Will the lawyer pay or not?
4. Ship of Theseus
You have a ship consisting of 100 planks of wood. Every year, you remove one old plank and replace it with a new plank. You store the old planks in a store house. Eventually, all the 100 planks of wood have been replaced. (Don't ask how you have managed to survive for 100 years.) So then, you decide to build a boat using the old planks of wood.
Contradictory Question: Which is the original boat?
Get ready for your brain to perish.
3. Omnipotence Paradox
So, an omnipotent being is something that can do anything. Literally. So imagine that an omnipotent being creates a boulder which is so heavy that nobody can pick it up. So he would also not be able to pick it up. But then he can't be an omnipotent being. But if he can pick up the boulder, then he wouldn't have been able to create a boulder that nobody can pick up, so again, he is not an omnipotent being.
Contradictory Question: Can he pick it up or not?
2. Paradox of the Heap
Let's say you have a heap of sand, and to be exact, exactly 1000 grains. Now you extract one grain of sand. Now you have 999 grains of sand. So it is still a heap, right? So by this logic, if you take out one grain of sand from a heap, it will still be a heap. So you patiently take out each individual grain of sand until you have one grain left. So here's the question.
Contradictory Question: Does one grain of sand constitute as a heap or is there no such thing as a heap at all?
1. The Grandfather Paradox
This is a popular one. Say you travel back in time and kill your grandfather before he met your grandmother. That would mean that you wouldn't be alive so you couldn't kill him in the first place, but if he is alive that means that you are alive, so you could kill him.
Contradictory Question: What happens if you kill your grandfather?
So did these paradoxes blow your mind? If you didn't get them, search the name of the paradox for a clearer definition.
