Bag of Randomness

  • That was a heck of a storm that hit our area yesterday, I heard there may have been 6-12 tornadoes that actually touched down, and from what I hear, there wasn’t one fatality.
  • The safest place yesterday was at Cowboys Stadium . . . touchdowns don’t happen there. #oldjokebutmodifed
  • I’m not sure if that first picture if fake or not, but I’m leaning towards fake.
  • The second picture is also from yesterday’s storm, it’s amazing to see two 18-wheeler trailers being tossed up in the air that high.
  • When the storm hit our area, WifeGeeding rounded up the kids and got into a closet underneath the stairs (why she didn’t round up the dogs I don’t know).  I think Harry Potter kept them company.  I was busy checking everything out on the back porch trying to get some decent blog material that didn’t materialize.  We had a lot of hail, about quarter and half-dollar size, but that was about it.  I’m sad to report my Altima is still functional.
  • I think other than some small dents on our vehicular, we more than likely have roof damage, and that’s small potatoes compared to what most folks in the area got.
  • Here’s a tool from Oncor that tells you where there’s an outage.
  • For you animal lovers, here’s the most touching picture from after the storm.
  • It’s hard to justify a new car purchase when you work from home.
  • When DogGeeding was alive, storms always scared him.  I have to admit, if felt good when it would start to storm and he would run to me for comfort.  There’s something about someone running to you for protection that makes you feel like you have some worth in this world.
  • I never understood why a girls’ or woman’s basketball has to be smaller and lighter, it’s not like it’s that much smaller or lighter.
  • For you college kids, here’s an automatic bibliography maker.
  • Starwood Hotel & Resorts has started new program for their preferred members in which they can name their own check-in and check-out times.
  • Here are the new Nike uniforms the Cowboys will be wearing next year.  For the most part, there’s not much change, but you can tell the padding in the knees and thighs have a unique design/shape.
  • If you are a fan of audio books, LibriVox is a collection of free audiobooks from the public domain
  • If you are a Star Wars fan and you dog has to wear one of those cone collar things, you might as well make it look like the Death Star.
  • 60 and Still Not Out of Student Loan Debt: Seniors Facing $36 Billion in College Loans
  • Bono’s birthday is about a month away, and fans, for the tenth straight year, are honoring it by raising funds to build a well in Africa.
  • Hire a fake girlfriend for $5
  • The great Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson noticed something was wrong with the sky in one of the end scenes of the very attention-to-detail blockbuster Titanic, so he decided to write James Cameron a letter.  Years later, Tyson tells the story and how it has since been corrected.
  • Why conservatives increasingly distrust science: 4 theories
  • This bedtime/sleeping calculator is quite interesting.  I didn’t know it takes the average person 14-minutes to fall asleep.
  • If you like the original Star Trek series and a fan of Obama, you’d like this picture.
  • How healthy is your county?
  • I wonder if my readers prefer a long Bag of Randomness or just a lot of different individual posts.
