Bag of Randomness

  • My electric bill for this month was exactly the same as it was for last month.
  • The Old Guard at Arlington National Cemetery have been taking pictures of every grave in the middle of the night using an iPhone.  It’s an interesting read, but I’m surprised they would only use an iPhone as opposed to a better digital camera, even a point-and-click.  It’s an interesting read, and I can only imagine what it must be like to walk through a pitch black cemetery at night.
  • Speaking of the Old Guard at Arlington, Irene didn’t deter themFacebook
  • Here’s another interesting read on what it’s like to have your film flop at the box office.
  • 60 Minutes had a segment last night on a New York gospel program for disadvantaged youth.  In the segment, an apartment building was described as being a place in which only kids who are being reared by their grandparent(s) can live.
  • Dick Cheney has made mention that his memoir will make heads explode in Washington.
  • If I ever need to find the age of a celebrity, I go straight to Wikipedia because it calculates the age for you, saving you the trouble for having to do it yourself.  But for some reason, the mobile version of Wikipedia doesn’t do the calculation, and that really annoys me.
  • For a while, Fellowship Church had their massive building dressed up a like a shark for a series called “Shark Weak.”  Pastor Ed Young even swam with sharks.
  • I noticed a bit of a sock discrepancy in the Cowboys preseason game.  Some socks were half white and half blue, and others were just all blue.
  • Troy Aikman is in a Reliant Energy commercial where he refuses to do any silly promotions, but oddly enough I see him do silly promotions with Hulk Hogan and for Wing Stop.
  • Seriously, I can’t believe another fan fell at the Ballpark.
  • Watch a Weather Man Get Covered in What’s Probably Raw Sewage
  • How hotels keep patio furniture from blowing away during a hurricane

    I worked at a hotel on the beach in NJ during the summer before I graduated college. One of my favorite jobs there was to throw all the chairs in the pool when a storm was coming. We didn't have any hurricanes but since pool side of the hotel faced the ocean a good NorEaster could put a plastic chair through a window.

    I thought the 60 minutes segment which described an entire apartment building designed exclusively for kids being raised by grandparents was a bit unusual…it must have it's advantages. Aikman also appears on a TICKET radio commercial in which he jokes about selling his Highland Park home. The home must be on the market because of the divorce. Everytime I hear the commercial, it sounds awkward because Aikman has such a lighthearted attitude about having to sell his home and, by inference, his divorce.
