On the 10th Day of Christmas . . .
. . . It pays to be Santa.

Someone working as Santa during the day at stores and malls, can earn up to $50.00 per hour. Then working nights as Santa at private parties, the same person can earn up to $200.00 per hour.

Which is why in 2005 "Forbes" magazine declared Santa the richest character in fiction with a net worth of $74,000,000,000. Other fictional billionaires include . . .

Daddy Warbucks
Richie Rich
Lex Luthor
and Scrooge McDuck.

Next time: the 11th day of Christmas.

Fewer people were executed in the Spanish Inquisition than for witchcraft in any other country.

The Inquisitors approached their task much more cautiously than witchfinders, so much so, that they never found any evidence of witchcraft, & ultimately declared that it didn't exist.

There are an average of 70,000 reported UFO sightings every year, worldwide.
That's an average of 192 per day.

It's not, but local juries won't convict, so it doesn't really matter......... Lookingup

Mauricio Ferro of Brazil went in to rob a drugstore, leaving his car running so he could make a quick getaway. 

While he was inside, somebody stole his car. 

While he was trying to figure out how his was going to make his getaway he was robbed and another thief stold the money bag he had just stolen. 

When he went to report his stolen car, the person he had just robbed was there at that exact moment describing him to the police. 

He was immediatly arrested.

Twice the size of Manhattan Island.

63,000 employees, or the largest one-site employer in the U.S. There are larger employers, but their employees are scattered across multiple sites.

47,000,000 visitors, or, if it was opened 24/7, that be 3 guests across the threshold every 2 seconds. 42% come sans children.

One out of every 300 state residents work here, and they have a choice of 2,500,000 costumes. The largest working wardrobe in the U.S.

Hotel rooms 29,546, or, if you decided to stay in a different room each night, beginning this year, it'd take you to 2094 to stay in 'em all. This includes the 2 unofficial hotels and Shades of Green, which we'll get to later, but not the "7 official hotels in LBV."

Prices range, per night, from $84.00 for a simple room to $4320.00 for a multi-room suite.

Next time: Shades of Green

In real life, actor Paul Michael Glaser (Starsky) hated the red Ford Gran Torino used on the show. To paraphrase what he said in an interview once,

1. the car is heavy, slow, handles like crap
2. Undercover cops would not drive something that sticks out
3. I don't like Ford products

"You can't get there from here."

Shades of Green
a AFRC resort or (Armed Forces Recreation Center)

Rooms are only $93.00 per night, but more importantly, growing up in a military family, the beer there is cheap, and it is cold. But, it is only for . . .

active military and immediate family
retired military and immediate family
members of the Reserve and immediate family
members of the National Guard and immediate family
certain Department of Defense employees and their immediate family
and certain foreign military members based in the U.S. and their immediate family.

Other then that, it is like any other resort, as it has a . . .

health club
restaurants
sports bar and lounge
swimming pools
gameroom
tennis courts
kids' pool
and a gift shop

Next time: a couple of cheaper places to stay.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
