Is there a Santa Claus? - a physicist view

Consider the following:
1) No known species of reindeer can fly. BUT there are 300,000 species of living organisms yet to be classified, and while most of these are insects and germs, this does not COMPLETELY rule out flying reindeer which only Santa has ever seen.

2) There are 2 billion children (persons under 18) in the world. BUT since Santa doesn't (appear) to handle the Muslim, Hindu, Jewish and Buddhist children, that reduces the workload to 15% of the total - 378 million according to Population Reference Bureau. At an average (census) rate of 3.5 children per household, that's 91.8 million homes. One presumes there's at least one good child in each.

Delivery Idiots

So I had a parcel delivered to me at work today with a load of poster in.....but the idiots at the sorting office had squashed it and damaged the ends of all the posters....meaning I couldn't have put them up because they looked appalling. What a waste of money having them printed.


Oh could be worse:

The Turkey Was Well & Truely Stuffed

So I am currently VERY annoyed.

My band, (The UK Pink Floyd Tribute Show) were meant to be flying out to Istanbul in Turkey last Friday for a Christmas mini-tour. We all had our bags packed, our VISAs had been sorted, and some of us had even taken out insurance on our health and instruments, when we get an email saying this:

"Hi guys, we decided to wait until the last minute to book your flights from the UK to Turkey in an attempt to save some money. However when we went to book them this morning there were no avaliable seats left on any flights"

Giving change

Ok, this thing REALLY gets on my nerves.

When I buy something and pay in cash, say a bottle of cider (mmm cider) for £2.04 and I have to use a £10 note, the cashier often gives me the change in this order:

£5 note
loose change

So that the coins are sliding about on top of the paper note! It makes so much more sense to give me the coins in my hand and then let me grab the note with my fingers! Surely they would want it that way too? Are people always this stupid? It's not the end of the world, but it sure is annoying!

Anyone else have this problem?

Christmas? Bah Humbug

Anyone know how many days it is until Christmas?

I don't. No one bought me an advent calendar.

I've not even started my Christmas shopping yet. Jeez I'm behind. Anyone wanna do my shopping for me?

Plus I've not even put any decorations up yet.....

Oh well, Merry Christmas I suppose!

Thank you Blogger

Just wrote a long post about an annoying thing I saw this morning, then did a preview, then tried to re-edit and lost the whole post.

How annoying is that?

Save draft, then preview, then post.

Now I have to re-write the other post. Annoyed, annoyed, annoyed
