Just a small christmas tale from RL http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

In our family we have a tradition of giving the children a small christmas present every day in december up until december 24:th, when the real presents arrive in Sweden...

Yesterday my son who is 2.5 years old realized that there was a bag full of presents that these daily gifts where distributed from and started crying to get another one. My wife who was in a hurry to go to work fell for the pressure and gave him another one, and we had an argument as I think that kids have to be taught that they cannot get what they want all the time...

Today he TOTALLY freaked out when he only got one present.

This was 30 minutes ago and here I am reading about people that want more free planes and get really irritated when these free gifts from Oleg does not arrive in time...

The bottom line?

There is no major difference between a 2.5 year old kid spoiled by his mother and and a flight sim community spoiled by Oleg http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Christmas is coming! /Mazex

P.S I am not putting myself above this in some kind of paternal way, I'm waiting as much as everyone else for the free addons... ME WANT TEMPEST NOW! ME WANT JU 88 NOW! WHOAOAAAAA http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Here in northern michigan - for the 12 days preceding Xmas our children are permitted to wander local roadways in order to gather and exchange roadkill. The recipient is required to identify the species, age, and sex of the dead animal - as well as all the organisms that may be active on it. When possible a meal is prepared using a traditional recipe - most often the meat is dried into jerkey for the after Christmas survival retreat. The remains are then boiled down to the skeleton and the skull is decorated by the child who found it and added to the family Christmas ornaments..
After Christmas the children, begining at age 4, are required to build a shelter using the Xmas tree and the skins of the pre-xmas roadkill to make clothing for themselves. They are provided only with a small flint knife, dental floss and a pair of sox and must live outdoors until the first of the year - foraging for food and avoiding all human contact.

LOL - I broke two ribs skiing this weekend and you have caused me a lot of suffering by your post (laughing is NOT recommended with broken ribs).

In the good ol' days there was an online magazine called Roadkill Quarterly which I assume that you have read - or contributed to?
Otherwise here's the link to there old archived issues (they are disgusting but some parts are very funny):

Well, I had never heard of it before I met my wife either. I think it's a tradition her parents brought from the darker parts of Sm√¬•land. The presents are really small so they do not affect the number of presents the kids get on Christmas Eve. Actually I think it's a good tradition except for the problems described above http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I'm glad this is about some parallels between parenting and this board, because from the thread title I thought for a moment something was going on between Oleg and your wife http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/heart.gif

I'm old enough (56) to be in my second childhood, so a tantrum over the patch is perfectly normal http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Thanks for the site Mazexx - hadn't heard of it. I should send them my recipe for Possum D'jon - gives a whole new meaning to the term 'Grey Poupon'.

LOL. Likewise, I was thinking maybe he wanted to trade his wife for some additional features added into the game! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

However, I am glad it was not actually what the title implied. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif It was a nice story and valuable object lesson about human nature as represented in this gentleman's child--young children just have an innate ability to project this nature in its purest form with no pretensions, and with no inhibitions.
