About 180 Saint Nick wannabes participated in the fundraising event hosted by Sunday River that was not for the faint of heart: The group tackled more challenging terrain than the traditional bunny slope during the 18th annual Santa Sunday.
Predictably, a few tumbled, but no Santas were harmed.

I used to go to visit a ski mountain every year with my parents, and my dad would dress up as santa, along with 5 or 6 other people. They would go around the mountain handing out little bottles of booze and candy to all the people working on x-mas day.
Anyways, 180 people skiing together seems awful. I've skiied with 20-30 people on uni trips and that was way too hectic for my tastes.

South Korea:Park Geun Hye spent 90minutes hair styling when 315 students trapped in sinking ferryAnonymous2016-12-07 04:53:26 Post No. 90053
President Park Geun-hye spent 90 minutes getting her hair styled by a popular hairdresser at her residence at Cheong Wa Dae while the Sewol ferry was sinking on April 16, 2014, the local daily Hankyoreh reported Tuesday.
The 90 minutes were part of the "missing seven hours" while the ferry was sinking, during which nobody saw the President who only received written or phone reports about the incident without holding an emergency meeting with government officials.
With Cheong Wa Dae being denounced for an inept response to the sinking, Park's hair... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

It said the President had her hair done after deciding to visit the Central Disaster and Safety Countermeasures Headquarters.

The U.S. military is protecting a Korean Army nurse who may know what President Park Geun-hye was doing for seven hours while the Sewol ferry was sinking on April 16, 2014, an opposition lawmaker alleged Monday.
This may be because the Seoul's defense ministry requested protection for the nurse, identified only as Capt. Cho, according to Rep. An Min-suk of the main opposition Democratic Party of Korea.
Cho worked at the presidential office at the time of the country's worst maritime disaster that killed 304 people.

SEOUL, Dec. 2 (Yonhap) -- A South Korean lawmaker was reportedly caught sneaking into a U.S. military base in Texas late last month to interview a nursing officer believed to hold key information on a controversy over President Park Geun-hye's whereabouts during a ferry disaster in 2014.

A new study has revealed that women prefer a slightly larger penis in a one-time sexual partner compared to a long-term partner.
Researchers from the University of California and the University of New Mexico provided women with 33 different-sized 3D penis models made of rigid, odorless, blue plastic (they were blue “to minimize racial skin-color cues”) to choose from. In total, 75 women, ages 18 to 65, took part in the study.
When asked to select the model which represented their preferred penis size in a long-term partner, the average response was 6.3 inches... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

>There are numerous systems built to take down wayward or dangerous drones, but they tend to have one big catch: you need to be relatively close to the drone, which could be scary if the robotic aircraft is packing explosives. DroneShield thinks it can help. It's introducing the DroneGun, a jammer that disables drone signals (including GPS and GLONASS positioning) from as far as 1.2 miles away. Like most rivals, it doesn't destroy the target drone -- it just forces the vehicle to land or return to its starting point. Anti-drone teams can not only disable threats from a safe distance, but potentially locate their pilots.
>It's not the lightest machine at about 13 pounds, but it's portable enough to be usable by one person. You don't need technical training, either, so it's easy for security staff to use.
>Whether or not you see the DroneGun in action is another matter. It's not FCC-certified as we write this, so you can't legally operate one in the US. Provided it's approved, though, it could help take down drones at airports, protect soldiers against drone bombs and otherwise help in situations where it's simply not possible to get close.

South Korea announced its defense ministry's cyber wing had been attacked by hackers suspected to be North Korean. The cyberattack reportedly took place in September but the confirmation of the attack came Tuesday.
South Korean authorities are trying to determine the extent of the data leak following the attack. The cyber wing of the defense ministry was set up in January 2010 as part of the country's counter-hacking measures against attempts specifically carried out by Pyongyang.

This reportedly pointed to North Korean involvement in the hacking incident aimed at the army's intranet.
