I forget if it was Discovery, TLC or the Travel Channel... but one of them showed how NORAD (I think) actually computed the same thing and simulated it, so you can actually go to some website to see where Santa is!

I have a Physics final tonight (which I'm not too concerned about since it's a 1hr intro course). Think I could get some extra credit if I brought this is? :P

Santa and his sleigh operate in the fourth dimension (also the fifth and sixth).

He actually spends about an hour at each stop, placing toys and eating cookies while enjoying a glass of milk (or the local beverage of choice). The sleigh operates similar to a "Tardis" (Doctor Who helped in the design).

All this activity takes place in less than one millionth of a second (normal time) and travel between stops is by Bergenholm warp generators.

This will be the last year for the current sleigh, as the new "NorthStar V Sleigh" will be delivered sometime in June of 2007 (spy photos will be posted in March).

So be good cause Santa Claus is comming to town.

The year my parents began putting out pretzel sticks and Diet Coke instead of cookies and milk is the year I stopped believing.

edit: we just told our 7-year old last night that Santa Claus isn't for real. She started crying, then the baby started pulling on her leg and she laughed it off. She thinks we're lying to her!
