Happy Holidays to everyone out there and we hope that you get everything you asked for as you take time to visit family, friends and for some strange reason, Weird Science.

We would like to take this time to thank everyone who comes to our site, listens to our podcast, talks to us on Twitter, shares our stuff on Google Plus...you guys are awesome!
Some random thoughts and stories to make your Holiday a bit more festive:
"Garbage Day!" -Eric's favorite Christmas Movie Quote (Silent Night, Deadly Night Part 2)
A couple years ago, my wife decided that the only gifts our children would receive were books or gift cards to a book store...not just from us, but everyone was told the plan. I can still see my kid's faces when they ran down the stairs and were greeted by a pile of books and gift cards. I think a pair of socks would have given them more glee. I can still see it and it still makes me want to cry! -Jim
One year for Christmas my Jewish relatives showed up and stayed uninvited, talked about the Holocaust the whole time and demanded Kosher Middle Eastern food that had to be picked up moments before dinner was served. When my dad brought out the ham, my aunt said, "That's a wonderful-looking roast, what kind is it?" She recoiled when told it was pig meat - Reggie
One year for Christmas, my grandma gave me a flag. An actual 5' American flag with a plastic eagle on top, that you put on your front porch. I was like 8. All I wanted was Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and I got a flag. It has stuck with me since then. Now the only holiday I dread more than Christmas is Flag Day... -Ryan
So when I was 5 or 6 I got one of those power wheels police tricycle. I loved it, but a whole day's charge couldn't get me out of the fucking driveway. So after a month we kept in the basement. The battery went crazy because late at night it would go off on its own and the sounds effects of a police siren and radio would go off. It scared the hell out of my family and I. I thought I had a haunted police tricycle. We took the battery out later that week. -Joel
We hope that everyone has a merry and safe Holiday! See you all soon...
