Bag of Randomness

  • Warren Buffet says he’ll match dollar for dollar any of their voluntary debt-reduction contributions to the IRS by Republicans, and he’ll triple the amount Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell makes.  Time
  • Another kind of 1% – Just 1% of Americans accounted for 22% of health care costs in 2009 [Source]
  • It’s not like terrorists have enough propaganda material on their hands, but there’s a new YouTube video of U.S. Marines urinating on the corpses of three dead Taliban insurgents in Afghanistan.  It’s amazing what people are willing to record on video.
  • Speaking of urinating, here’s a urinal that will analyze a person’s urine and give a health rating.  I think this would be a good product to have in a restaurant or bar and charge a dollar for its use, of course there should be plenty of free urinals to use as well.
  • Mitt Romney is on his way to in the Republican nomination, but on Friday about 150 evangelical leaders will gather at a Texas ranch to try to stop that from happening.
  • I learned two interesting things about the funeral of RFK.  His funeral is the only one to ever take place at night at Arlington National Cemetery (his brother Ted’s started in the day and ended at night) and at the end of the grave side service, the folded American flag was presented to Ethel on behalf of the United States by John Glenn [Source] of all people.
  • In case you were wondering, Glenn is 90-years-old.
  • This is a really cool machine used to move a tree from one location to another.
  • I’d bet the farm that Kate Upton will appear on the cover of next month’s Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue.
  • On Twitter I noticed that @SecretService isn’t following anyone.  I guess they don’t trail people like the FBI and CIA.
  • DirecTV changed their channel guide yesterday, and I shall say they did it for the better.
  • I caught that new Howie Mandell flash mob show yesterday.  I think it’s going to be one of those shows that worth recording but not worth watching live because it’s one of those that they really like to surprise you with a commercial on a cliff hanger.  I like that it doesn’t always have to deal with a wedding proposal, and the editing is a bit overdone at parts, but it’s a real feel good show.
  • From the commercials of The Iron Lady, I’m convinced that all Academy Award nominations for Best Actress in a Motion Picture should just go to Meryl Streep.
