Loved getting my uncle in the family KK its annoying previous years when I have gotten cousins that I haven't seen in 3 years. Always good when you can get someone you know you can buy for.

Man these spammers are geniuses...put (NO SPAM) in the thread title to hide the spam.  It's brilliant.  Hopefully this doesn't catch on...what if rapists wear signs that say (NOT A RAPIST)?  They will be raping everybody! D:

If you see the cops - LEAVE.

If the cops are coming - Don't be there.
If you show up and the cops are already there - DISAPPEAR.
Anyplace the cops are and you aren't, is a good day

:yes:

What I got? Have no clue yet.

 

But for my brother I got him a pair of Velodyne headphones. For my mom I got a Nokia Lumia 920 in red.

It's the decisions you make when you have no time to make them that define who you are.

Darn, I thought our Steam chat convinced you otherwise. :lol:

 

By the time the iPhone 7 rolls around, you might have to buy special pants to carry it around. :P

I already gave it to my parents, they loved it. My dad's been wanting a second TV (we only have one Samsung 52", we don't watch much TV) for his office (works from home) so he can watch the news while he works.

I don't really get into the presents part of Christmas too much, I mostly just enjoy the company.
