Bag of Randomness


  • I wonder in the future, like 500 years from now, will technology be so advanced that there won’t be a need for any human officials for sports like football, basket, baseball, and hockey.
  • The girls that work at the Capital sure did go gaga over Prince Henry yesterday.  If you followed the coverage, it was actually comical.
  • I wonder if Fidel Castro is angry he’s not the most famous Castro in the world right now.
  • I get a tad bit annoyed when I get an email send from someone’s smartphone or tablet and it ends in the line “Sent from my _____”.  It like you’re letting The Man win and use you, just go in your settings and change it.  With that being said, I have one friend that changed his to “Send using The Force” which cracks me up.
  • Dallas sports fans love to criticize Jerry Jones for not having a GM and point all the blame at him.  Mark Cuban has a GM, but people still love to blame him for things.
  • I’m seeing more and more Tesla cars in the area.
  • Anna Jarvis was the woman behind making Mothers’ Day recognized, but later she boycotted the holiday because it became too commercialized and she hated the idea of a printed greeting card thinking people were being too lazy to actually write a letter to their mother.  Article
  • If my calculations are correct, in the year 2018, or five years from now, Jerry Jones will have owned the Cowboys for more than half of the team’s existence.
  • Celebrities lip-sych for a good cause – YouTubeArticle
  • The dark side of Christian home schooling: creating soldiers for the culture war – Related to the article – Home Schoolers Anonymous
  • Tom Hanks comes in first – Reader’s Digest Trust Poll: The 100 Most Trusted People in America – Here’s a version of the list where you don’t have to click through each entry.

  • Timewaster of the day – GeoGuesser
  • Miami Dolphins Want To Have a Game on an Aircraft Carrier – But not real football.
  • The Dallas Morning News has a list of places to take out of towners.  I’m glad to see Babe’s was on the list, but overall, I think the list is a bit swanky.  If I were to add to few more moderately priced places on the list, I’d probably include La Hacienda Ranch for food and atmosphere, especially if they aren’t from the southwest.
  • In case you happen to be reading this, happy birthday, Bono.

    I get a tad bit annoyed when…

    When I first saw those, I wasn't annoyed, but initially interpreted it as gloating – "Hey, look at me, I got an iPhone!"

    Then, when I upgraded my smartphone (still not an iPhone or Galaxy), I realized the usefulness of the phrase, as I now view it as putting my email recipients on notice that I'm not at a full-featured desktop PC, and thus I may cut some style or grammatical corners due to the itty-bitty keyboard. As well, when responding to emails on my mobile device, I intend, or at least hope, that it conveys that I haven't looked at the 47 attachments included in the original message.
