Bag of Randomness


  • GIFs are replacing short video segments which means advertising revenue is being lost because people aren’t subjected to a short commercial before a video.  I expect to see many GIFs in the future have some sort of advertising in them, either a frame or two or an image or text at the bottom.
  • Speaking of GIFs, here’s an interesting article on the guy who captures most of the NFL GIFs and how he goes about doing so.
  • I’ve been in plenty of ‘heated’ discussions where I would replay the moment over and over in my head wishing I would have said such and such at the time.  Recently I was in one of those discussions and I said exactly what I wanted to say, respectfully and to the point without being emotional or acting like an ass.
  • WifeGeeding was outside planting tulip bumps yesterday in jeans and a sweatshirt while that NFL offensive lineman neighbor of mine was mowing his lawn shirtless but in shorts.
  • I was reading a friend’s blog and he referenced a Bill Cosby quote that has stuck with me, “I don’t know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.”
  • The funniest thing I’ve read about Bum Phillips, “He once told sportscaster Bob Costas that he took his wife on away games ‘because she’s too ugly to kiss goodbye.'”
  • Bud Adams and Art Modell both moved their teams out Houston and Cleveland because they couldn’t get backing for a new stadium, and yet both those cities built new stadiums for their new teams.
  • Sometimes it’s really hard to take the threat of China seriously when you see stories on their smog problem.
  • Mammals Pee For Same Duration Of 21 Seconds, Urination Study Finds -I use to time mine to see how long I could go, usually after a long car ride from college.  I think my best was over two minutes without breaking stream and using a slow flow method.
  • I have no idea where MSNBC or FOX News is located on my channel directory, but the Sprout channel for kids is 295.
  • I long for the days when Apple was innovated and introduced a new product to change our lives.  Since Jobs passing, all they seem to do is update existing stuff.
  • For you Disney fans, here’s a great medley.
  • Geographic Pizza Data
  • Impressive vending machine skills – gif

    Congratulations to the Keither. I was listening to the Ticket this morning and heard an entire segment devoted to your question regarding the ranking of the Jacksons.

    I'm pretty sure Coach Jimmy Dugan holds the record at 4min 20 sec.

  3. If what I heard about the iWatch is true, we'll all be astounded early next year. It wasn't from a primary source, but from someone big in tech on this week's This Week in Tech (at

    I really think that Steve Jobs has been replaced by a better business man (Tim Cook), a better designer (Jony Ive), and at least an equal presenter (Craig Federeghi).

    BTW, I'm using the just-released version of OS X and it's great, faster on the same hardware, easy to install, etc.
