I wonder what happens to prizes won by contestants on ‘The Price is Right’ if they don’t want them. For example, if they won a bookcase and a sewing machine but don’t want those items, is there an option to donate them directly to charity or do you have to accept them and then donate or sell them.
I can’t figure out what’s a bigger small victory in life, when your checkout balance at register contains no cents (such as $44.00 or $5.00) or switching lanes in a car and not running over any of those Botts’ dots.
I was trying to find the meaning or significance to Captain James T. Kirk’s middle name, Tiberius. I was certain Star Trek creator, Gene Roddenberry, was aiming for some sort of symbolism. All I could find was that was his grandfather’s name. I did find a few references which state in several Star Trek stories, none by Roddenberry or part of Star Trek canon, that say many Kirk first born males were given the name of Roman Emperors with the hope that they would achieve greatness.
To clarify my Star Wars comment from yesterday (spoiler alert) – I took the director’s comment very literal (which maybe I shouldn’t have), that the next film would start at the exact point Rey meets/finds Luke and she presents him his old lightsaber, and the film just carries on from that moment. If that’s the case, and unlike the other films, literally no time would have passed, so there wouldn’t be need for a crawl to catch us up on anything. But I’m very prone to misinterpret things, and I guess the crawl could catch us up on other things going on in the galaxy during the time it took Rey to find Luke.
Everytime Baylor has a chance to move forward it seems like they purposely want to take a step back, their interim head coach had some odd answers and statement. And with no other coaches let go, the school is making it looking like Art Briles was solely responsible and at fault, like he’s Colonel Nathan Jessup ordering the Code Red.
WifeGeeding asked me why I keep a certain old Polo shirt around. I reminded her it was the shirt I was wearing when she told me, “I love you.” It was at the Armstrong Browning Library at Baylor, and I showed her the picture to prove it. She states she’s never said that to any other person outside of family, and you have no idea what that means to me.
Colbert has had some really solid shows this week.
It’s called Google Arts & Culture, and it’s a tool for discovering art “from more than a thousand museums across 70 countries,” Google writes on its blog. More than just an online display of art, though, it encourages viewers to parse the works and gather insight into the visual culture we rarely encounter outside the rarified world of brick-and-mortar museums.
As there were no organs available, he was fitted with a pacemaker and an artificial heart – which he now carries around in a bag on his back. Despite his brush with death, he is now back to the gym and said he cries after workouts as he feels so ‘thankful to be alive’.
