Bag of Randomness for Wednesday, September 7, 2016
The doctor I was seeing sold his practice and moved on to other things. One thing I liked about him is that depending on the illness, you could ask for a prescription to be sent to the pharmacist and not have to go in for an office visit. Many doctors to this. The new practice is not a believer in such a thing. Appointments are difficult to schedule, and I’m thinking the only reason they refuse to call in any prescription to a pharmacist without an office visit is purely financial on their part. There’s a part of me that can’t blame them for trying to make a profit, but then there’s another part of me that think they should be flexible.
BoyGeeding asked who was stronger, He-Man or the Hulk. I’m going with the Hulk. He-Man may be considered the “most powerful man in the universe,” but, the Hulk’s “capacity for physical strength is potentially limitless due to the fact that the Hulk’s strength increases proportionally with his level of great emotional stress, anger in particular.”
I would also say the Hulk is strong than Superman, but Superman would in a battle of outsmarting him. See, the Hulk gets stronger the more stressed and angrier he gets, Superman would find a way to keep him from getting too stressed and angry, limiting his strength, and then duping him into something.
I miss how cartoons like He-Man and GI Joe would end with some sort of recap detailing a life lesson displayed in the show.
And this should pull at your heart strings, and a fitting tribute:
In lieu of a funeral, Dewdney asked that people read to children
Dallas DA Susan Hawk will finally resign due to mental health reasons. Say what you will, but for her to voluntarily step down takes courage.
All the ITT Technical Institutes are shutting down. When I was a kid and was stuck watching old reruns of shows like ‘Get Smart’, ‘Hogan Heroes’, and the like, I used to see their commercials ad nauseam. One that stood out was the guy that graduated from high school, going to ITT, and then moving in his new apartment to start a career when all his friends were drudging through college.

I’ve mentioned how I enjoy watching the CBS sci-fi dramedy ‘BrainDead’ and how I get a kick that every episode starts with a quirky musical recap. WifeGeeding doesn’t watch the show, but she wants to watch and listen to each musical recap before I delete it from the DVR. It turns out she’s not the only one who doesn’t watch the show but watches only the musical recaps. Here’s the latest which has a bit of a ‘Family Guy’ gimmick.
“To say I’m disappointed in the hiring of Skip Bayless would be an enormous understatement,” Aikman said. “Clearly, [Fox Sports president of national networks] Jamie Horowitz and I have a difference of opinion when it comes to building a successful organization. I believe success is achieved by acquiring and developing talented, respected and credible individuals, none of which applies to Skip Bayless.”
Barry, over at LiberallyLean.com, is standing firm in his belief that Longhorn fans were booing Tyrone Swoopes when he entered the game and not yelling “Swoop” or “Swoopes”. It’s my understanding he thinks it’s because Texas fans have been thirsting for a new QB and they were upset when Swoopes entered the game, but I doubt that since the “18-wheeler” package was used successfully at the end of last year and was hinted at being used again this year. I wonder if Barry thought Dallas Cowboys fans were booing Daryl “Moose” Johnston and not yelling “Moose!” every time he touched the ball upset Emmitt wasn’t getting the carries.

IBM’s Watson analyzed hundreds of horror movie trailers to figure out what makes an audience jump. Editors don’t need to worry about losing their jobs quite yet: The AI system suggested its ten “favorite” clips and a living, breathing human being edited it all together.
The Orlando Sentinel reports that the new requirement is in place to help block the use of stolen and shared tickets. Older children and adult visitors have already been having their fingers scanned for years.
Approximately six months after Tim Brummel of Atlanta had a vasectomy, he noticed his wife start showing symptoms of being pregnant.
That’s when it dawned on them that after a five-month follow-up examination with the clinic in Jacksonville, Florida, Tim was never called back about the results. When he called them to check, he said they told him there may have been a snag in the procedure.
Tim said he then wanted to confirm his suspicions without his wife finding out, so he drained the toilet one night and tried his luck with a urine pregnancy test the following morning. When it came up positive, he decided to surprise his wife with the good news and capture her reaction on camera.
