Bag of Randomness


  • I felt my first earthquake yesterday while in my upstairs office around 3:00 PM, but WifeGeeding didn’t notice anything as she was downstairs with the kiddos.  I didn’t feel any of the FIVE that happened later on.
  • About a week ago I mentioned that order a pair of size 4 jeans from eBay (for the wife, not for me) but when they arrived they were actually a size 4S, as in small.  I contacted the seller but never got a response after five days.  After that time period, eBay provides an option to investigate and they ended up crediting my PayPal account for the cost of the item as well as shipping.  Yesterday I decided to leave an honest but negative review of the transaction and the seller contacted me.  He said he never saw that I contacted him, noticed I got a full refund and stated that wasn’t fair, and thought I should return the jeans to him.
  • I watched ‘Marvel’s Agent Carter’ last night and liked how they portrayed Howard Stark as Howard Hughes, especially when he was testifying in front of Congress.  The show had a good theatrical feel to it.
  • I think most men find a female with an English accent a turn on, but oddly I like it more when a woman with an English accent speaks with an American accent.
  • I wasn’t too impressed with CBS11’s “investigative reporting” yesterday.   Back in 2012 a female Kennedale teacher was sentenced to five years in prison for having group sex with her students.  That’s inexcusable.  Her husband has stayed by her side, as they have kids and he’s committed, and now he’s deployed overseas.  She’s currently at home on parole with her children, but it doesn’t seem his deployment has anything to do with the parole, and she wasn’t required to register as a sex offender.  CBS11, in a bit of gonzo journalism, filmed their reporter from the street going to her home and confronting the former teacher when she answered the door asking about her parole.  I don’t condone what the former teacher did, but she paid the price and did the time until the legal system let her out.  It seems like CBS11 is directing their anger of the early parole at the wrong subject.  I might be wrong, but I’m guessing that former teacher is just trying to put the past behind her and move on, fearful what her kids might find out about what she did when their friends taunt them from what they are told or find online, and the last thing she wanted was to be on the local news for abiding by the system.
  • Why are bagpipes a part of funerals, especially firefighter and police funerals? –   Of course it relates back to Irish roots, had no idea that Scottish bagpipes are actually used.  Why?  They’re louder.
  • There’s nothing like getting your new found luck flushed down the toilet – New Mexico Lottery tells man his $500,000 winning ticket was a ‘misprint’
  • In other New Mexico news – Woman smuggles gun into jail in her vagina
  • I always get a kick that Colin Powell always gets a vote for Speaker of the House, actually, I think something like that would be cool.  Many aren’t aware that one does not have to be in Congress to be Speaker.
  • If you need a time-waste – You can now play nearly 2,400 MS-DOS video games for free in your browser – It seems I’ve lost some of my Pitfall skills but lost none of my Joe Montana Football skills.
  • Farmer forced to offload aggressive Nazi-bred ‘super cows’
  • I wonder how many governors, in particular “modern” ones, have been sent to jail – Former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell Gets 2 Years In Prison
  • This Ingenious Machine Turns Feces Into Drinking Water
  • Today’s dose of ‘MURCIA!

    " Kennedale teacher "

    Saw the same segment and thought the same thing. She admitted her guilt and went to prison. I didn't see any need to take a film crew to her house and rehash the whole thing all over again. BTW, I thought she showed a lot of poise and politeness in dealing with the reporter's unannounced visit.

      Also, I have to point this out because I just watched the video and couldn't get past it – does that reporter feel like printed leggings are professional attire? You're on TV, not hanging out in your kitchen. You could be breaking a scandal more important than Watergate and I wouldn't take you seriously.

        Speaking of professionalism, at least she doesn't post about her sex life on a blog for her co-workers, bosses, and the world to see.

        • Ben W. says:

          Except for the fact that she's a public figure — who by definition has a reduced expectation of privacy — and she is a professional journalist who is paid to report the news as opposed to a private individual, you raise a valid point.

          Oh, wait, no you don't. But you did succeed in using a straw-man argument in making a random, poorly executed attack on a guy whose blog you read voluntarily. Well done.

    Doug Free is expected to miss the Packers game with an injured foot and ankle

    It seems to me that if someone was a good neighbor and a Cowboys fan and adept at rendering foot massages, he could at least stop by Doug's house some evening with those special oils and offer a little physical therapy.

    Just a thought

      Since he's married to a very nice woman, I'm gonna leave those duties to her. But when he got hurt the first time, DaughterGeeding felt sorry for him and thought we should take over some Christmas cookies, which she and her brother did as I watched from the sidewalk.

    You want to see results, leave a negative Amazon review. I did that and was all but paid to take the review down.
