Bag of Randomness

  • A few years ago the NBA failed at trying to bring in a new basketball.  But this year they are actually using new rims.  The result – league-wide scoring has risen by nearly five points through the first seven days of the regular season compared to last season.
  • Back in 1967 Sweden decided drivers should switch from driving on the left side of the road to the right side.  Interestingly enough, there were no fatalities and accidents actually decreased the following year.  Link
  • I watched V last night on ABC.  In one of the opening screens a statue of Jesus on the cross falls in a church and breaks to pieces.  I wonder if the network got any calls about that.
  • I watched a little Leno last night and the stars of Paranormal Activity were on.  That guy was just basking in the starlight and trying to soak in every moment of it.  He was a bit annoying, but I can’t blame the guy for being excited.  The female was wearing a very short skirt but didn’t have the legs to show for it.  I was reminded somewhat of the Curb Your Enthusiasm midriff episode.
  • They mentioned that Spielberg saw the movie and afterward contacted them to help reshoot the ending.
  • Leno also had a Biggest Loser contestant on the show.  I think it was someone that was just eliminated.  Leno asked her current weight but she decline saying that a lady doesn’t reveal her weight.  I thought that was odd because she was the one that would step on a scale half naked for every episode.
  • For my U2 readers – Does U2 Still Matter?
  • I looks like ATT doesn’t like those new Verizon 3G ads as there is now a lawsuit.
  • Laundry Room Collections, aka “things in little pockets that almost went in washers.”
  • Man Accidentally Ejects Himself from Plane
  • This would be a dream come true for me.  Imagine eating in a casual restaurant and Bono comes walking in and he takes time to greet your baby and pose for pictures.  I guess it pays to always wear a U2 concert shirt. And to think the closest I ever came was a blurry and dark picture of me on the floor and him on the stage.

    Just wanted to let you know that I think the Biggest Loser contestant is still "playing the game". She doesn't want to reveal her weight lost to the other contestants because she is still in the running for the prize? Not sure yet as this is the first year I've watched Biggest Loser…

    In that video, Bono tells the guy that the second night in NYC was the "best night of the tour." Of course it was; I was there! 🙂
