Bag of Randomness


  • The ball is in your court, Republicans – to whom a lot is given a lot is expected, or something like that.
  • Last night Chuck Todd stated that the Republicans will not have to worry about losing the House until 2022.
  • Weird – When Wendy Davis voted yesterday, she wore a Wu-Tang Clan’s logo shirt that had her name on it.
  • If you are curious about the order of candidates on your state’s voting ballot, here’s a good source. In Texas, is the order of votes for party (governor) in the previous election.  In Oklahoma, it’s drawn by lot in each county.  In Idaho, is their Secretary of State’s discretion.
  • BoyGeeding found my wireless keyboard and decided to turn it into a key-less device.  I had to look up the product online to make sure I got rarely used keys (like Pause and Insert) back in the same place.
  • Texas has its first newly elected governor of the century.
  • The Discovery Channel has some original programing with a show called Eaten Alive –  . . . naturalist and wildlife filmmaker Paul Rosolie enters the belly of an anaconda in a custom-built snake-proof suit.
  • Facepalm – @AllergyKidsDoc
    Parent “I want #Ebola vaccine for my child”
    Doc “There isn’t one, but we have #flushot”
    Parent “We don’t believe in that”
  • Brittany Maynard was the woman in the news with terminal brain cancer that moved to Oregon to take advantage of their Death With Dignity law, and she helped lead the campaigned for assisted suicide or death with dignity or whatever you want to label it.  I think her campaigned was stymied with the majority of her pictures showcasing her as young and attractive, looking nowhere near death.  I know she did some video interviews where she didn’t look as strong, but I bet most people only know her from her healthy pictures which caused many to think she was calling it quits way too early.
  • U2 To Perform On ‘The Tonight Show’ For Full Week of Nov 17 – I bet we hear a lot of acoustic versions.  The band is also on the latest cover of Rolling Stone which I just picked up yesterday.
  • Speaking of that magazine, here’s a list they compiled of bands that have had no breaks ups, no lineup changes, no hiatuses, etc.  U2 and Radio Head leads the pack.
  • – Mapping The Changing Face Of The Lone Star State
  • Today’s dose of ‘MURICA! – Baskin-Robbins Honors Vets With Camouflage Ice Cream
  • Buzzfeed – Australian Woman Met Her Anonymous Sperm Donor And They Fell In Love
  • I’d rather parachute out of plane than ride in a hot air balloon.

    Hot air ballooning is beautiful! Its so slow and calm and peaceful. Go once and you will do it again. Beautiful scenery and deathly quiet also. Next on my bucket list is the parachute jump. But tandem jump to start with first….
