Bag of Randomness

  • If you are interested in studying religion and theology, Princeton Theological Seminary has a new digital library of 50,000 out-of–copyright titles.  (hat-tip, Rivulets)
  • Our current Lieutenant Governor of Texas, David Dewhurst, is running for the U.S. Senate and on his website, has a Liberal Madness Bracket It’s very simple. Pick President Obama’s Worst Policies and submit your bracket. If your bracket is the winner, you’ll win a historic map of Texas that will serve as a reminder of what Washington can learn from the Lone Star State. (hat-tip, that LiberallyLean guy in Wise County)
  • For those of you that always wanted your own hobbit house.
  • Custom Darth Knight 6″ DC Universe Action Figure (Batman / Star Wars Mashup) 
  • Woman Proposes to Her Girlfriend During Hockey Game
  • A lot of folks were posting the video of a guy asking his girlfriend how many miles would you travel if you drove 85 mph for an hour.  I didn’t post it because I thought it was fake.
  • It’s annoying when a pro athlete joins a new team and ESPN and SI have to start posting photoshopped images of the player in the new team’s jersey.  It just looks cheap and so obviously fake.
  • While watching Happy Gilmore last night I had a big chuckle when Happy looks at that gator and says “You got one eye!” because right after he said that, WifeGeeding blurted out “ME TOO!”
  • I saw an interview in which Rick Santorum described his preferred healthcare plan.  He would want businesses to spend less providing for employee healthcare and for those cost savings to go to the employees’ salaries, where they can decide to put the extra money into a health savings account or spend it elsewhere.  It almost sounds like a trickle-down theory, businesses save money by not spending on healthcare, and the savings are trickled down to employee income.  I’m not sure how much businesses would actually trickle down cost savings to the employee in terms of salary, I tend to think cost savings would go to executive bonuses and corporate growth.
  • I’m not sure what Mitt Romney would prefer to have in terms of healthcare reform, but yesterday he said he didn’t like the idea of free birth control.  I would think pro-life folks would prefer decreasing unwanted pregnancies, which in turn, would decrease the amount of abortions.
  • I like it when politicians are willing to take questions from college students, good for you, Mitt.
  • I tend to think ‘glitterbombing’ a politician is a bad way to get your point across.
  • It’s a good feeling to lay down some sod and have a storm a few days later.
  • If you were every looking for an adapter to connect your Lego, Tinkertoy, K’Nex, Lincoln Log, and other building sets, here you go, and I think they are free.
  • The BioLite CamptStove is a small outdoor stove that will charge your mobile device.
  • I’m not buying this anchor’s profane word slip with this excuse.
  • A never knew a Russian city was built in the middle of the ocean.  It was commissioned by Stalin, is web of 2,000 oil platforms and 300 kilometers of bridges, is inhabited by 2,500 people, and continues to work.  YouTube  It was a bit interesting to see someone actually mow on this human build island/city.
  • It was just a matter of time before a Christian merchandising company would start on the Hunger Games movie.  Link
  • The Mark Cuban book, which is only available as an e-book, first went on sale for $2.99.  It’s now just $0.99.
  • Letterman had a good joke last night about Manning and Tebow.  It went something like . . .  Peyton Manning will be the starting quarterback for the Denver Broncos next season replacing Tim Tebow, which answers the question, what would Jesus do?
  • For the best BBQ in Dallas, I’d suggest Soulman’s or Mike Anderson’s.
  • If you have some foggy looking headlights, try toothpaste.
