Irgendwie erinnert mich das an den feinen Unterschied zwischen Sinn- und Nutzlosigkeit, den Messner bei Lanz neulich erläutert hat ;-)

Naja @Thomas,

manchmal sollen Sachen auch einfach nur Spaß machen ... und die ganz jungen Digital Natives mit Santa Clause überraschen zu können hat schon irgendwie was.

Abgesehen dass die großen Spielkinder auch ihren Spaß haben ;-)

Ich habe versucht das meiner Frau zu erklären und ihr fielen auf Anhieb drei billigere und unkompliziertere Möglichkeiten ein, die Kids zu beeindrucken :-)
Aber das ganze hat durchaus was.

As most of my articles roll off the front page rather quickly, I am making an archive of previous posts available here. You can also use the handy search box at the top of the page if you are looking for something particular.
