Quatermass, thanks for the Skyfall clip. I'm not a big JB fan but I think I'd watch that one.

Also, Does M stand for Mother?

I watched The Graham Norton show pop up at the end. Javier Bardem, Whew!

No. Raoul Silva calls M 'Mother' or 'Mommy' in a twistedly affectionate manner, as she's a mother-substitute to some of her agents (she out and out states later in the film that orphans make the best agents, like Silva, or James Bond).

I'm very Bah Humbug, but I do love the Muppets, and I'd heard about this Cee-Lo Green song on the radio such a lot that I had to have a wander round YouTube.

I shall be at home, alone, for Christmas, and will thoroughly enjoy myself. I will cook something nice (I'm usually a ready-made meal girl), and enjoy some DVDs, books (including Kindle, Pip!!), and some TV shows that I'm building up on the PVR for this very reason (Last Tango in Halifax and Dallas).

I only have to work for a few hours on Xmas Eve and NY Eve, the bits in between are all mine!
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

I haven't been following what anyone has been saying but I thought this the perfect thread to ask a question i'm stumped on: Telling a child santa doesn't exist is frowned upon and is "mean", what I don't understand is why parents tell kids he does exist in the first place and why it's "mean" to tell them the truth. I do of course understand that if a child is told santa doesn't exist he/she will undoubtedly grow to become a killer/crimminal, I mean santa is of COURSE something a child HAS to know exists, it's just like drama at school/highschool, of COURSE it matters ;)
Well, you know what they say. The past is a foreign country - - With an outdated military and huge oil reserves!

Substitute "God," "Allah," "Jesus," "Vishnu," "Isis," "Zeus," "Om," "Offler" or any other name for "Santa" and you'll essentially understand why. As the say in the Science of Discworld books, lies our parents tell us are all part of the "Build a Human" kit. :D

I'm just fed up with the crass commercialism and fake joviality of Christmas, as far as I am concerned it's for the kids to enjoy.

Well. Fine... believe what you may... but as I tell Hayden ... if you don't believe in Santa.. he stops believing in you.

And don't think you are getting any more presents either !!!!!

Of course Santa isn't real! ...

He is an invention by the coca-cola company to promote (originally) a cocaine based fizzy drink!

Now ... Father Christmas is real! As real as Real can be! ... AND I get a text off him EVERY Christmas morning, wishing me a Merry Christmas ... although to save costs he sends it from my sister's phone ... probably because it's easier for him to send it from her list of contacts ... :whistle:

I'm afraid that simply isn't true and Snopes agrees.

I'm pretty sure that QI did something about this misconception as well, but I haven't been able to find a reference. :)

The question is - does your sister get a text from Father Christmas as well? :lol:

We went to see Santa two weeks ago very quickly. He had a lively chat with H and called over the fence to me.... Is your phone number still the same as last year? I'll give you the usual call the week before Christmas to see if everything's alright okay?

What he didn't realise was.... that for years we DID get a call from Santa just before Christmas.

Santa sounds a lot like the guy who used to live next door.

Only the kids can see Santa Claus because the Big jobs stopped believing in him.Image
