Bag of Randomness


  • At last James Taylor didn’t start off singing ‘Sweet Caroline’ last night.  For those of unaware, he was scheduled to sing both the national anthem and ‘America the Beautiful’ and before the start of the game he started with ‘America the Beautiful’ before quickly switching back to the national anthem.

  • I have a feeling this photo of four rulers of England will become iconic.
  • I get annoyed when politicians on both sides say “The American people want . . .” A lot of times I, as an American, disagree with what they say Americans want.  Come on, stop painting with such a wide brush.  But I don’t get annoyed when I hear people say, “We want our country back” because I’ve heard both sides use that phrase and to me, it’s just a way of encouraging like-minded people to vote.
  • If you wonder what I do for a living, it’s my responsibility to make sure websites and applications assigned to me don’t become an embarrassment like  The one I’m working on presently generates $2.8 billion.
  • The Marines are considering a new kind of unisex hat.  All the conservative websites state it’s Obama’s idea but the mainstream media doesn’t state the idea came straight from the Commander in Chief.  Stars and Stripes addresses the rumor, but I suppose some folks think Obama ordered that article to be written as a cover-up.
  • It’s funny seeing other nations, our allies, act surprised as if we they didn’t already know that we’ve been spying on them, and it’s not as if they haven’t been spying on us.  I mean, we’ve all seen the James Bond and Jason Bourne movies.  Huh, that’s the first time I put together both of those characters have the initials JB.  Oh, and we’ve all seen the Jack Ryan movies as well.  Speaking of Jack Ryan, I had no idea the character is making a comeback this January with Chris Pine.

    No Irony, you got your princesses mixed up.

    Cinderella was a maid for the evil step sisters and then turns into a Princess.

    The note you started the Blog with today,could have been my family 25 years ago! I went during the day to all of the houses I knew I would take my daughter too (she was almost 2 and not allowed to have candy), I left things like fruit rollups and cookies,etc. When we got home she thought she had hit the jackpot!!!! Thanks for the memories!!!!

    On the proposed new marine cover, several thoughts:

    Because we have an all-volunteer military, what the troops prefer should be the main consideration. It affects morale and recruiting.

    In the side-by-side comparison, the soldier with the traditional headgear is covered with medals.

    Currently, it seems as though everything is eventually Obama's fault. Gas prices go up, Obama's to blame. Gas prices go down: no story here. If he's involved in something: "He needs to stay out of it!". If he's not involved: "Where's the President?!"

    The Dan Daly cap looks ridiculous. It's similar to what to what train conductors or airport baggage porters wear.

    If the Germans were caught bugging Obama's cell phone for a long period of time I don't think most Americans would just say "well we probably do it too". I think a lot of people would be pretty upset given that Germany is supposed to be a close ally. So I think it is hypocritical for us to do stuff like that. If Germany is trying to do it, then publish the evidence so no one else will trust them either. I'm personally embarrassed that we are living up to the stereotype that much of the world has of us in a bad way.

    • Geeding says:

      Good thoughts, Daniel, and I can totally understand feeling embarrassed. For me, I have the assumption that our allies are already spying on us, and if they are successful, I'd be disappointed we did take the actions necessary or have the technology available to prevent such a thing.

    I'm not a fan of the Dan Daley hat but I am a fan of Dan Daley. If you think he ever worried about his hat style, you would be mistaken. Sometimes you can go too retro with style and I feel this is one of those cases. But I want to watch one of these critics to walk up to a Marine and tell him he's wearing a girly hat. Hilarity ensues.

    I wish we had HEB in North Texas. Absolutely my favorite grocery store.

    That (and I use the term loosely) Mom in SA needs to spend a long, long, long time behind bars and in therapy.

    Lewis Black did one a bit on "I want my country back" once. People talking about a simpler time when life was good and you didn't have to worry about this or that. The problem is that when life was all these things you were 6 years old. Of course you didn't have any problems! Mom and Dad were the ones bustin' their hump trying to keep you fed and a roof over your head. Our parents had to worry about a Nuclear War, polio, Communism, Presidential assassination, segregation and civil rights. All you had to worry about was getting home before the street lights came on. I'll agree life was much simpler when I was 6 years old, too.

    Random blathering of your local contactee.

    Other than being human. Other than first donating my sperm to the entities, to being an enslaved sperm donor to the entities, I am still human, and I will resist slavery. It took a long time, but I am free from the entities, whether they are good or bad, in the long term, I think it is probably destiny through my fight of mind, that I'm free of them. I hope they go to "HELL"

    Not about them.

    They, the other dimensional came to me because I was pondering one night. I was questioning life and death, mind, soul, all of it. They responded in voice, and backed up some of my ideas about it all. They showed up a few months later, in person.

    We don't know but a tiny fraction about the universe. If you have ever had an out-of-body experience, then you would ponder that there's possibly more than just a physical world.

    Atheism might as well be a religion, but don't tell that to an Atheist, or they'll go intellectualistic on you.

    Britain's 'Atheist Church' Set to Go Global MAR 8, 2013 10:00 AM ET // BY AFP

    Echoing with joyful song and with a congregation bent on leading better lives, this London church is like any other — except there's no mention of God. Britain's atheist church is barely three months old but it already has more "worshipers" than can fit into its services, while more than 200 non-believers worldwide have contacted organizers to ask how they can set up their own branch. Officially named The Sunday Assembly, the church was the brainchild of Pippa Evans and Sanderson Jones, two comedians who suspected there might be an appetite for atheist gatherings that borrowed a few aspects of religious worship.

    For reasons unknown I feel obligated to tell my story, all the while knowing it won't mean shit to most.

    They don't tell me shit (just a little) or no one else. Just like Star-Trek's prime directive, although they call it differently.

    We humans look like some of them. In other-words, they look like us, but I think they came first.

    I call entities us, them. Most call them Aliens

    Not so much as ET alien, but more like extra-density (or of a different dimension as we say). They speak of us as being of 3rd density, and they being of 4th density. Are we in the same place on Earth, but of different densities or dimensions? They say we are soon to be in their density, coincidentally at about the same time of the natural cataclysms. They say that they live longer than we do. They say it is because our "soles" increase more than our body mass as we move towards more density. I speculate that the swirl our solar system lies in, is moving inwardly into a swirl that is closer to the center of the galaxy, and this is the Transformation that they speak about. And it has been happening for a while now. More and more contacts, more and more UFO sightings. To the enlightenment of all, goodnight.

    Delilah was one Grey, but I have met many non-greys before her, with names almost impossible to remember, because they were ancient names, not like our modern ones. Eon, was the other Grey, but I don't recall much about him, although he was very enthusiastic, and said his name to me with an exclamation mark. "I am Eon!"

    Being a caring professional in the medical field, I questioned Delilah about her eye. All was going well. We talked about how the elders were always falling, and how antibiotics were necessary for deep wound injuries. She mentioned "her kind" receiving terrible injuries during battle, such as hatchet wounds to the back and head. I offered to help. She offered an antibiotic, not known to man.

    I joke about Delilah being an assassin want-to-be. Her telepathic abilities are strong, she induces noise into the minds she wishes, in the form of tormentous chipmunk-sounding songs that repeat never-ending to the recipients. This will drive them to surrender, if not suicide. In addition to the perfect assassin, she can be anywhere, here, there, at the speed of light, as we know it.

    Delilah is a true assassin. She came to me after the 2nd or 3rd time we talked, describing a patch she has to wear on her eye, from a horrible being that scratch the shit out of her. Delilah has the big black eyes everyone is crazy about these days.

    Back to the story: My co-assassin, my mentor, is an 11 year old, grey (actually white) alien, wishing-to-be assassin, named Delilah.

    Although there's always the women to mess up my plans. I'll have to endanger my life to save her, because I love her more than my life.

    I am an extremely athletic non-zombie. I will out-run them. Then, back-track and assassinate them, one by one.

    It could be highly contagious.

    Make an improvised flame thrower (due to lack of bullets) and run like hell away from all known civilization.

    Some may say you are aware that you are an entity of more than what our physics can explain.

    Imagine the statue of "The Thinker". What did he think about, and how did he think before there was language?

    So, this whole IQ thing is bogus?
