10 Reasons Why Santa is Terrifying

Why aren’t more people afraid of Santa?? Have we become such a materialistic society that as long as you get free stuff you can overlook other obvious creepy things? Let’s take a look at the list:

1. He has tiny minions.

2. He breaks into your house in the middle of the night.

3. He makes out with your Mom. “I saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus.”

4. He eats your food.

5. He kills Grandmas. “Grandma got run over by a reindeer.”

6. “He see’s you when your sleeping, he knows when your awake.” …creepy much?

7. He loves little kids…actually, he loves little kids on his lap.

8. It seems like he is everywhere! Malls, TV, etc.

9. He has the technology to make things as simple as a rocking horse or as complicated as a video game system.

10. He is immortal, can fit into small spaces, and can visit everyone’s  house in one night.

Definitely sounds like a guy I’d want around my children and who I’d let in my house late at night while I sleep.

…Merry Christmas! 🙂

Worrying About Spontaneous Face Combustion

Okay world, you win. You have officially come up with the craziest thing for me to worry about: Spontaneous Face Combustion.

Kim Grice, a 29-year-old mother of three, was having a routine outpatient surgery to remove some growths from her face when it BURST INTO FLAME. This poor woman suffered burns to her face and neck and had to be helicoptered to the University of South Alabama’s Burn Unit on Tuesday morning.

APPARENTLY what happened to Kim Grice was not an isolated incident. Experts have estimated that each year 650 fires flare up in operating rooms around the country. Some patients have recovered with scars and emotional damage but some DIE from burns and smoke inhalation. Why have I never heard of this?!

They are investigating the “flash fire” but apparently the doctors are as surprised as everyone else. I guess this explains the reactions of the doctors in this photo below.

“God golly gosh! This has startled me. What should we do? Let’s marvel at it for a bit. I mean, it IS a medical mystery!”

I can now add a new fear to my list for when I have to have any type of surgery done to me in the future. Thanks world. I’m pretty sure you’re doing this on purpose now just to laugh at people with anxiety and paranoia issues like myself. Awesomeness!
