Bag of Randomness for Friday, January 8, 2016


  • Other than this blog, the only social media I partake of is Twitter. However, I’m told I should get on Instagram, which seems like Twitter for pictures but you are allowed more characters. I don’t know if I want another thing to keep up with. However, WifeGeeding is on Instagram and goes by the name of “wifegeeding”.
  • The Taco Cleanse – “Taco scientists” out of Austin came up with a plan. They call it the 30-day taco cleanse, providing more than 75 vegan recipes that put a healthy twist on a favorite dish in South Texas. Yes, it’s tacos for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
  • Transcripts of phone calls between then Prime Minister Tony Blair and U.S. President Bill Clinton from 1997 and 2000 have been released by the Clinton Presidential Library.  Here’s an example of what Clinton had to say, ““My staff won’t let me talk to you unless I have a banana at hand. I’m sitting here with a banana; it’s a big, ugly, brownish one.
  • The vast number of pastors that frequently tweet harsh political opinions surprises me, but it shouldn’t considering the times we live in.
  • Obituary for The TICKET’s Gordon Keith’s father, Dr. James M. Keith – This part stood out – He became a member of the Board of Directors for the Fellowship of Christian Athletes at the invitation of one of his heroes, Coach Tom Landry. 
  • Man punches veteran for refusing to let daughter pet service dog
  • GIF – How to get out of a steep hole
  • The Verge – Kodak’s CEO gave me the coolest business card I’ve ever seen
  • It sounds like Beyonce and Bruno Mars will play along with Coldplay during the Super Bowl halftime show.
  • I mentioned the other day I bought more than I needed to at Costco, and one item, er, two items, were a pair of bathmats. I told WifeGeeding I was hesitant because they don’t sell any matching toilet mats. That made me ponder, why do toilet mats contour? It’s not like anyone puts their feet that far back on the sides of the toilet. WifeGeeding thought it might have to do with males bad aim or splashing. The closest thing I could find somewhat supports her answer. And it wasn’t until I read that article that I knew many designers or home sellers avoid the use of them because they show a lack of hygiene or they are trying to cover up a defect.

    She has terrible trigger discipline. Hopefully that's a single-action revolver.

    Yeah, mats around the toilet are gross – just get rid of it. Want to make the area even cleaner? Have the men of the house sit down, regardless of what they're doing. It's something I never really thought about, but when we got married, my wife gave me the choice: sit down or clean it yourself. I hate cleaning bathrooms, so it was an easy choice. Stand up in public, sure, but at home sit down.

    This is going to sound smarmier than I intend, but is bad aim really such a big problem for males over the age of 12 that they should sit down? I've probably had my rare moment of a renegade stream a handful of times, but I do pretty well at hitting the center of the bowl, even at the wee hours of the morning or after I've enjoyed a couple of adult beverages.
