Heh, reminds me of a lame modern day adaptation of scrooge that was on late night TV the other day.
It was made in the 80's and starred Bill Murray as a go go corporate Scrooge.
God, why do I stay up so late...

Twelve minutes into christmas (Horray for living in NZ). Merry Christmas everyone.

As a special christmas treat, I'll give you all the URL of one of the most interesting government funded health websites in New Zealand's history, available here.

I have included a screenshot of the game below.
Click here to preview.

Edit: I was trying to make the outcome of that game as freaky as possible, the screenshot is of making entirely bad choices throughout the two or three steps required...

Wow, in Australia they just pump our schools full of brainwashing Republican American videos about abstinence...

ADD: I don't get this game, I just keep hitting "have another drink" but nothing really happens, this isn't like real life at all...

On the NPC, fill up the "Have another drinks" area, then select "Ask them to come home with you...", then "Your choices", then "I don't want to..." (or "Let's use a ..."). There are some stunning images if you choose "I don't want to...").

"May kababayan pala ako dito. Hehehehe! Akala ko nag-iisa lang ako." (I have a fellow Filipino. I thought I was the only one.)

Anyway, four and a half hours more and it's Christmas day in the Philippines. (The season started last September. We have the longest celebration in the world. :P)

Those NZ guys are so lucky. They get to celebrate both Christmas and the New Year first.

It's a game on what to do with having protected/unprotected sexual intercourse and sexually transmitted illnesses by the Ministry of Health (New Zealand).

Anyway, the threads going offtopic now. Let's stay away from that discussion as much as possible.

That game is very on-topic, its something people can bear in mind when giving their partners their "Christmas Presents"

It's Christmas Eve here in the north-east United States. I already know I'll get a lot of presents (some of which may be very special)!

The thing here is that I can't believe it! I just can't believe it, all this time we've had some pretty normal days and now it's Christmas Eve already! Maybe things here need to feel a little bit more like Christmas!

Anyway, Merry Christmas to everyone here on BetaArchive (and on any other forum that I'm a member of), and a Happy New Year (that big elf in the red suit who flies around in a sled with his reindeer would also like to wish everyone here on BetaArchive a Merry Christmas and of course a Happy New Year :P )!

WARNING: If you have a fire place, please remember to put it out, since we don't want this "old elf" (you probably know who he is) to burn himself when he climbs down the chimney (he also does that too for some reason), so please be careful! :P

Hey, I just thought of something: Maybe that's how Santa Claus gets around the whole world! Maybe because of different time zones! Think about it, if it was Christmas in one part of the world, but not in other parts of the world, wouldn't it be easier to get around then (he wouldn't have to do it all at the same time)? :P

Sadly, I don't celebrate Christmas. Thus I don't get any gifts.

I intended to give some people some gifts this year, but due to outstanding circumstances, I was unable to give it to them. Oh well, hope they like getting their gifts in January...
