Have you ever teased your kid (or a kid) about, you know like.. Santa's gotten shot down by a fighter jet or alien or something... and you can do it within the confines of your family, and depending on how jovial you are about it the kids get the joke most of the time (and it also depends on the age of the child). But here's an example of how, not only are we taking away childhood, but we're doing it in a politically perverse way that I find disgusting.

Here's an "urgent" message from Santa Clause, provided to the children of the UK by Greenpeace:

http://www.mrctv.org/videos/santa-says-global-warming-may-cancel-christmas

....and Santa fades to black, as the melting ice continues to drip, drip...

You know what? I wanna punch them. I wanna take this guy and I wanna strangle him. I wanna strangle the sob. What a dirt bag. Also, thats a creepy sounding Santa Clause.

Thoughts on this?

I remember being like 8 years old and playing in the backyard with my friends. when I say "playing" im talking about digging a big ass hole until my parents lost their shit when they saw what we were doing. Kid stuff. why? because "homework" consisted of reading 3 pages of a textbook when I got home, and then ****ing around til the sun went down (I'm 21, its not like this was long ago...)

My little cousin who is like, 9 years old, has midterm exams tomorrow. he's in Grade 3. I was at his house today and he was freaking out, on the verge of full blown panic attack because he didn't think he was ready and was going to fail the exam. not a "test", an exam. an exam that will take 3 hours to write.


... Grade 3.


now he has to worry about santa telling him that ****ing global warming is going to kill all the reindeer and cancel christmas?

these kids are doomed. society has failed them before they even had a chance.

leave adult problems to adults, and let kids be kids goddamit. They've got like 70 years to worry about shit until the day they die, let them have at least 12 years of care free existence.

Oh no, kids are actually learning things at an earlier age. How horrible.

yep. 30% examinations at the age of 9 are great for kids attitudes to learning, and overall mental health. overwhelming stress and pressure is exactly how little kids learn best

The sad thing is most of what kids are given is busy work so its just stressing them out for nothing.

I would've felt the same way as a kid honestly, this isn't 1973 grandpa.

I'm more disappointed in the fact that the video is some greenpeace bullshit and not a trailer for a christmas thriller/horror/disaster movie. I'd totally go and watch it.

Are you literally this dumb? You are pretending right?

Do you think children who believe in santa go "I wonder what greenpeace is up to" and google this shit? Even if you google "santa claus" this doesn't even come up. Kids aren't subscribed to greenpeace on youtube, kids don't have youtube accounts. Please reconsider your life.

It's an interesting idea, though. Suppose that, in some future generation, the polar ice caps are melted down.

The reason Santa is in the north pole is because it's an area largely seen as inaccessible. If just anyone can drive to the north pole, they can see that nothing is there. Where will Santa hide then? His secret moon base?

man no way, legos replace all.

Hell, even as an adult I'd rather spend most days sitting in my room playing with legos than going out and having to do adult shit. legos trump video games.

I'm of the generation that grew up pretty much at the intersection of the best video game systems with the best lego sets: 90s kids.
we got this:

and this:



a ps1, and a giant ass box of legos would keep me entertained for the rest of my life.

EDIT:
^
see? its not just me. i'm asking everyone i know to get me legos for christmas. that and some Ps1 games. I still have the console, but I can't find any of my games to play with it. Spyro the Dragon, gran turismo 2 and Crash Bandicoot were my favorites

I had to simplify. I also erased the N64. If I had to choose, I'd take the PS1 every time. I'm a playstation kid at heart, always will be.


and besides, if snackfood was gonna be included, it'd obviously be a McDonalds happy meal. I wish I could still order a happy meal without being judged.

Wtf is this shit, Blair Witch Santa meets Edgar Allan Poe.

I'd never deprive a child of childhood. It wasn't done to me and it won't be done to other kids. Unless he's a little shitbag who doesn't do what he's/she's supposed to do because he wasn't raised right by his/her parents.
