According to their creator, GeekBeat.tv: “People suck at parking. You should let them know. Here’s how.”
“We’ve all seen it a hundred times. You’re driving through a busy parking lot and you spot an open space up ahead! You feel like you’ve hit the lottery!!! Until you get up close and see that someone parked their Hummer WAAAYYY over the line, taking up two perfectly good spots. Well instead of pulling a Dexter on ‘em, or maybe taking a key to the side of their car, or a pocket knife to the tire, or… well you get the picture. Instead of all that, how about just leaving them a polite little card that lets them know how you really feel!
By the way, the Bad Parking Cards started out life as a Kickstarter project! It was fully funded in a matter of days, and went on to achieve 225% of the original goal, so MUCH love goes out to the Kickstarter community for making this dream a reality!
And one other little item of note – these cards get shipped out of our warehouse in Dallas, TX on a daily basis. So if you order them, we’ll make sure and get them on their way ASAP!

Notice how the animation seems to rotate when you first observe it. But if you look at each individual dot, you find that they only move back and forth in a straight line.
Several years ago Google launched their own site for tracking Santa Clause. Google’s web-based Santa Tracker is very nicely designed, showing present delivery, the amount of distance Santa has covered, when he departs from a certain location, and a personal status update direct from Santa! You can also get 3D satellite imagery if you installed the Google Earth plugin!
NORAD has a great Santa tracking site of their own! The website provides live satellite imagery, locations of past present drops, and even Santa Cam clips of the Big Guy himself visiting various locations! NORAD is also posting Twitter updates under the @NoradSanta account.

According to NORAD:For more than 50 years, NORAD and its predecessor, the Continental Air Defense Command (CONAD) have tracked Santa’s flight. The tradition began in 1955 after a Colorado Springs-based Sears Roebuck & Co. advertisement misprinted the telephone number for children to call Santa. Instead of reaching Santa, the phone number put kids through to the CONAD Commander-in-Chief’s operations “hotline.” The Director of Operations at the time, Colonel Harry Shoup, had his staff check the radar for indications of Santa making his way south from the North Pole. Children who called were given updates on his location, and a tradition was born. In 1958, the governments of Canada and the United States created a bi-national air defense command for North America called the North American Aerospace Defense Command, also known as NORAD, which then took on the tradition of tracking Santa. Since that time, NORAD men, women, family and friends have selflessly volunteered their time to personally respond to phone calls and emails from children all around the world. In addition, we now track Santa using the internet. Millions of people who want to know Santa’s whereabouts now visit the NORAD Tracks Santa website. Finally, media from all over the world rely on NORAD as a trusted source to provide updates on Santa’s journey.
