>This increases the payload, not counting the weight of the sleigh,

>would be subjected to acceleration forces of 17,500 g's. A 250 pound
>Santa (which seems ludicrously slim) would be pinned to the back of

>bones and organs and reducing him to a quivering blob of pink goo.
>Therefore, if Santa did exist, he's dead now.

Laughing Nice find bro.
Psalms 34:1 - I will bless Jehovah at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
Psalms 16:7 - I will bless Jehovah, who giveth me counsel; even in the nights my reins instruct me
" I pass to you the torch that Christ once passed to me, others are still in the dark an need the light to see"
