Bag of Randomness

  • That’s a picture I took with my camera phone of my television last night from my couch, I was too lazy to get up  and take a better picture from a better angle.  I thought it was interesting how the lights just happen to hit the president, as if the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit were blessing him.  OK, that last part was a bit far, it’s just me trying to have a little fun, I know God would only bless a Republican president.  But hey,  it’s still a cool picture, and I wonder if the other networks caught the same effect.
  • I wonder if there will ever be a president that will provide the State of the Union in the form of a letter like Thomas Jefferson.  Just think about the cost savings.  But I admit, I’m a sucker for tradition and pageantry.
  • In case you were wondering, John Kerry did have two black eyes, it was due to a pick up hockey game.
  • Until last night, WifeGeeding never heard of the term “pick up” _____ game.
  • I would hate to have to sit behind the president during a State of the Union, I know my nose would be itching the entire time.
  • On Tuesday nights a few of my guy friends come over for a Bible study over the Sermon on the Mount.  Last night WifeGeeding sees us staring at the television screen and walks in and says “There doesn’t appear any Bible study going on here!”  Then she turned around and noticed I hooked up my laptop to the television and on one side of the screen was a scanned copy of the lesson and on the other side was’s section over the Sermon on the Mount.
  • I have to admit, I sometimes wonder if I actually add value to our Bible study and if I talk too much.
  • I remember in middle school there was a rumor about this one kid being born without an anus, so the doctors had to surgically make one.  Yeah, I know, kids can be cruel.  I was reminded of that when I read this article about a crazy misdiagnosis which caused a baby to be born with numerous deformities, with one deformity being that she was not born without a rectum.
  • Per Monday’s Ripley’s Believe it or Not, Hong Kong has more than 2300 buildings that are at least 300 feet tall, more than three times the amount of New York.
  • I always thought it was a shame that comedic acting doesn’t get much respect at the Oscars, so it was nice to see Melissa McCarthy nominated for an Oscar for her role in Bridesmaids.  There are a lot of categories as is, I kinda wish there was a separate “Best Comedy” award.
  • Martin Sheen has never been nominated for an actor.  I really enjoyed his performance as a supporting actor in The American President.
  • Those Patriots appear to be cheating again (hey, they have a past), and I hope the league will take some time to look at this.
  • This NFL punter looks like he could kick some serious butt.
  • In case you are wondering when the next new episode of Mad Men comes on.
  • Audi/BMW challenge made me laugh
  • bkin looks like an interesting iPhone product/app that would be useful if you lose stuff or want to track your kids or pets.
  • Something for my friend Jimi – Dividing 1 by 998001 gives every three digit number from 001 to 999 in order
  • Something for my friend Scooter – An antler headlamp?
  • Thomas Czarnecki has a photo series that’s a bit dark about fallen Disney princesses.  Just scroll to the right.
  • This man claims his wife was punched not by him, but by a ghost.
  • I’m not so sure about the new Superman.
  • An 85-year-old Alaskan woman saw a moose stomping on her husband, so she went after it with a shovel.  That’s love.

    There's only one set of camera's in the House Chamber. I believe they are run by C-SPAN so there's only one feed for the networks to pick it up. I think they do that for a few reasons, there isn't enough room for 4-sets of cameras and Congress doesn't want to be seen as favoring one network over another.

    Melissa McCarthy may have been one of the all time greatest guest appearances on SNL.

    Thomas Czarnecki's photo series was a little too dark for me.

    I think the SOTU speech has become pointless ever since the rebuttal was added:
    President: "Here's what I want to accopmplish"
    Party-Out-of-Office: "Here's why we will make sure whatever the President just said is never goint to happen"

    The funniest car add on television is the one with the crusty old tow truck driver who has hooked every type of car made except for the one that always out-smarts him; the elusive Audi Quatrro

    Good friend of mine has a son who was born without an anus. After a few months, doctor's surgically repaired the issue and know he's fine. So, it is possible.
