Bag of Randomness


  • I got another email from AOL stating that my email was being used an an alternate email for a person I’ve never heard of and all I needed to do was click to confirm.  Of course I didn’t click to confirm, but I can’t find anything on Google about other people experiencing this same issue.  I’m not sure if’it’s a scam, and if it is, how it would work (other than the link being misleading, which it doesn’t seem to be per the code behind the link) or if it’s just another mistake.
  • I was using a hand truck the other day and had to go up and down several steps.  At the time, I wish mine had this modification.  For the longest time I use to confuse a dolly for a hand truck.
  • Broadcast TV Finale Dates 2015: The Complete Guide
  • Everytime I take communion I think of of this GIF.  I laugh everytime.
  • Today’s dose of MURICA!
  • The projected 2050 religious makeup of each region of the world – For the year 2010 in North America, the top two are 77.4% Christian and 1% Muslim.  In 2050, those two are projected to be 65.8% and 2.4%.
  • 1% Problems – A few months ago, Stuart Leaf was sitting in his Brooklyn Heights apartment when he got a call from his wife asking when he’d be home. It turned out “we’d both been home for three hours,” he said—their roughly 11,000-square-foot condo is so large that neither one realized the other was there.

  • Joss Whedon says there won’t be a post-credit scene after Age of Ultron
  • I thought Senator Rand Paul graduated from Baylor, but I’m wrong, per his Wikipedia page – Paul left Baylor early, without completing either his Bachelor’s degree in biology or in English, when he was accepted into the Duke University School of Medicine. At the time, Duke did not require an undergraduate degree for admission to its graduate school. He earned a M.D. degree in 1988 and completed his residency in 1993.
  • I still don’t think we’ll see Brian Williams back in the anchor chair at ‘NBC Nightly News’ – ‘Shell-shocked:’ new details about NBC’s handling of the Brian Williams scandal
  • I was surprised to hear that the twelve-year-old AT&T Center in San Antonio was getting a $100 million renovation after the Spurs’ season, but I guess I was more surprised to learn that Whataburger has been one of the concession providers for years.
  • Leaves have now appeared on the crepe myrtles, but so far no flowers.

    Brooklyn Heights is probably my favorite neighborhood in the world and I was shocked at the real estate prices. It looks like the neighborhood from The Cosby Show and it is extremely exclusive. The Brooklyn Heights Promenade along the East River is offers one of the best views in the city. You can stand in one spot and see the Verrazano Bridge, the Statue of Liberty, the World Trade Center, the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges, and the Empire State Building.

    The battle over service animals is real for businesses, but I'm not sure that lady at Disney made that claim. Until recently, people could bring just about any animal they wanted (even miniature horses) into a business under the claim that it is a service animal and the business had no basis for verifying the need for the animal and very little legal protection if they intended to deny entry.

    • Ben W. says:

      Yes, thankfully the ADA has issued some regulation regarding what qualifies as a service animal. From their website:

      The ADA defines a service animal as any guide dog, signal dog, or other animal individually trained to provide assistance to an individual with a disability. If they meet this definition, animals are considered service animals under the ADA regardless of whether they have been licensed or certified by a state or local government. Service animals perform some of the functions and tasks that the individual with a disability cannot perform for him or herself.

      So a service animal must perform specific functions and tasks for a person with a disability. "Emotional support" animals don't qualify, and can be excluded. But note that "service animal" isn't strictly limited to dogs – your miniature horse example is spot on. This makes me wonder if you might be a business owner who has had some real-world experience with this. If so, I'll bet that makes for a heck of a story…

    – I never realized that there was a difference between a dolly and a hand truck.
    – I don't believe Josh Whedon.
    – The Spurs have the best franchise in pro sports. Having a Whataburger is just icing on the cake. 🙂
    – It's _Crape_ Myrtle.

    "Every time I take communion I think of this GIF"

    That's actually happened to me.

    Crape myrtle versus crepe myrtle——Brian Williams also spells it crepe myrtle.
