   It's the time of year when thoughts turn to holiday traditions, such as the odds of whether your four-ton goat will be burned or not this year

I find nudity much more challenging at Burning Goat.

Let's all act amazed and pretend we never heard of this before.

/was interesting the first time I heard about it - now it's just attention whoring.

A couple of flaming arrows would do a good job.

We do the same thing here, but it's trailers with meth labs instead of a straw goat.

On down the page a little ways, I found this interesting:

Online daters give away their secrets-
...Oh, and the single factor that best predicts whether someone - man or woman - will have sex on the first date is whether they like the taste of beer.


So does that mean they will or won't put out? Inquiring minds.

Here's the article, OkTrends is fun. If they like the taste of beer (or at least that they'll admit it on an online dating website) they are more likely to also consider sex on the first date.

Hay that is too moist (>20% moisture) can spontaneously combust. Therefore a clever way to secretly burn the thing down is to plug a hose into the middle of the bales, crank the water for a bit, and wait a few days.

It's tradition after all!

I always look forward to the Yuletide Swedish goat conflagration.

This is a new tradition in the making, folks.

A hundred years from now, the Burn the Goat / Save the Goat ritual will follow strict formal rules and people in both camps will bet huge sums of money on the outcome.

...and it will spread to other countries where it will be adjusted to pre-existing local customs:

I say get one of those 40$ radio controlled helicopters (the crappy big ones, not the little ones that can't be steered and die in a light breeze), have it include some lighter fluid and ignition switch, fly it over, land, and light the sucker.
extra points if you can fly it back.

"In 2005, a torching by vandals dressed as Father Christmas and a gingerbread man reportedly set off a frenzy of copycat straw-goat-burnings. Another year, there was a failed attempt to bribe the guards so that a particularly bold set of criminals could cart the statue to Stockholm via helicopter in the dead of night."

These Gavle goat stories make me laugh until I cry every year.

Best Christmas tradition ever.

"Copycat straw-goat burnings" is my phrase of the week.

And my crime of the week.
