A major life goal was growing tall enough so my feet could be placed on the floor and no longer hang while sitting on the toilet.
LiberallyLean went on a fantastic sports trip to Kansas over the weekend. I like that he writes about his trips, but I wish he’d provide more details. Perhaps that’s his secret, he leaves enough out which keeps us wanting more. We both have many things in common, but one thing we differ on is food. I would have definitely hit up one of their BBQ places. But then again, perhaps that’s why he has seven-pack abs (at least that’s the word out on the streets about his physique).
Well, now I know at least three people in Mineral Wells read this excuse for a blog.
According to the Christian History Institute – Columbus estimated the size of the Atlantic Ocean partially from reading his Bible. He had read in the Second Book of Esdras (in the Apocrypha) that God created the world in seven parts, six of them dry land and the seventh water. He thus calculated that the ocean separating Portugal from Cipangu (Japan) was one-seventh of the earth’s circumference, or about 2,400 miles. He figured that by sailing 100 miles per day, he could reach the Indies in 30 days.
I thought the new season of ‘Fargo’ got off to a solid start. I’m really impressed with how well the sets and clothing from the Seventies stand out. Spoiler warning – The story reminds me of this local tragedy that happened back in 2003. If I recall correctly, my childhood pastor was slightly involved as he was the pastor of the victim’s son, who I remember did a live interview with the ‘Today’ show from Albany, TX.
I wonder if this YouTube video about a flight attendant kicking a passenger off with sympathetic fellow passengers will go viral.
Speaking of flight attendants, this Mental Floss article states the reason they aren’t tipped is because black men in similar occupations (porters on trains and boats) were tipped, and tipping white flight attendants would come about as an insult.
