I'm bored out of my mind. Someone say something controversial. Martbowski I can see you online.
It is however very obvious.
I decided today that buying Christams presents for children is cruel. My reasoning is that choosing one day a year when presents can be recieved makes 364 days when they can't, which is not a good ratio. Secondly, the dependence of the child on this one day and on their parents' "generosity" is a dependence that is a poor preparation for real adult life. Further, the anticipation of Christmas day can induce mild hysteria in the weeks leading up to the day which is not healthy.
Did you have to buy something ridiculous like a Furby?
However you did reply to the wrong person which is good.
