Bag of Randomness

  • I renewed my vehicle registration online last night for the car I so desperate want to trade in.  It turns out I now have the option of renewing for 24 or 36 months – I no longer have to just settle for 12 months.  By choosing the 24 month option I save about three bucks and five bucks with the 36 month option.  Also, unlike previous years, the insurance verification was done automatically.  I think last time I actually had to enter account numbers or something.  This may be old news to some, but it’s a first for my county.
  • I remember when vehicle registration stickers didn’t go on the windshield but on the license plate.  Sometimes my dad use to let me put the sticker on for him, which made me feel really grown up.
  • It’s May Sweeps and all the local news stations are trying to provocative can’t miss segments.  I use to get caught up in that madness until I realized that I can either DVR the news and that the story will be posted on their website when I get to work the next morning.
  • There’s already a plethora of stars appearing in the season finale of “The Office.”  You can now add Warren Buffet to that list.
  • Jerry Seinfeld has posted his personal archives.  Seinfeld fans (I’m talking to you, Brent!) should check it out daily.
  • A man in a custom built jet-suit took an eight might flight over the Grand Canyon and flew as fast as 190 mph.  I think he would have gotten more pub if he didn’t launch from a helicopter.  Here’s an article with video of the feat.
  • All ball point pens in federal government builders were built by blind people.
  • According to FEMA’s website, Texas tops the list of states receiving disaster funds, with 84 declarations since 1953.
  • A rehabbed baby seal is released back to the wild.  It’s kinda heart-warming.
  • A study is going to be performed regarding high speed rail from DFW to Houston.  I bet Southwest Airlines is going to have a bunch of lobbyist on that one.
  • Something for you Lord of the Ring fans.
  • You may soon be able to verbally communicate with dolphins.
  • The Queen giving Helen Mirren a deadly stare.
  • Yesterday the Library of Congress today launched the National Jukebox, which makes thousands of historical sound recordings available free of charge to the public .

    The National Jukebox doesn't contain the song "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" or anything by Louis Armstrong or the Rat Pack. Epic Fail.

    Awesome! Thanks for the heads up Keith. If only Jimi were sophisticated enough to appreciate good clean humor when he saw/heard it…
