Bag of Randomness for Tuesday, October 4, 2016


  • GIF – Watching a ladybug take off to flight in slo-mo is a bit cooler than I thought.
  • I don’t know Michael Reagan (Son of Ronnie and Jane Wyman) all that well, but this tweet somewhat surprised me – @ReaganWorld Michael ReaganMy father would not support this kind of campaign,if this is what the Republican Party wants leave us Reagans out.Nancy would vote for HRC
  • I was flipping channels last night and saw Joan Jett and Bette Midler on ‘The Voice’ and was surprised at the amount of cosmetic surgery both obviously received.
  • ‘Gotham’ introducing a twin/cloned Bruce Wayne, with the young actor portraying him in nothing more than a long-haired wig, seems like a “jump the shark” moment.
  • Interesting Netflix marketing ploy – Netflix released two different trailers for its documentary Amanda Knox: one asking viewers to believe her; the other, to suspect her.
  • Here’s What Happens When You Crush A Car Spring In A Hydraulic Press
  • Amazon is cracking down on biased customer reviews
    • I like to check out Amazon reviews of a possible purchase, but usually use to see how valid the reviews are.
  • GM Has Built A Stealth Truck for the Army
    • The Chevrolet Colorado ZH2 is an electric truck powered by a hydrogen fuel cell that runs far quieter and cooler (between 60 to 80 degrees Celsius) than conventional automobiles. It’s almost a forward operating base unto itself, capable of producing 25 kilowatts of continuous power (and up to 50 kilowatts at peak output), along with two gallons of water per hour. The vehicle itself is a modified Chevy Colorado, rigged for off-road performance with bigger tires, better suspension, longer wheelbase, etc.
  • A great shirt for any Oklahoma Sooner fan (seriously)

    – 1986, the final season of the Akers era for the Longhorns
    – You know why Texas doesn't float off into the Gulf? Because Oklahoma sucks.

    That ZH2 is pretty cool. I understand it's just a testbed, but I wouldn't want to be anywhere near it if the enemy started shooting AP rounds.

    Dead people usually do vote Democrat.

    Trivia on Baylor in that 1986 poll because I know you love Baylor trivia. The week before Baylor played USC in Waco. For some reason, I was in Waco for the pep rally at the stadium the night before. Grant Teaff spoke and fired up the crowd by poking fun at Skip Bayless for his Dallas Morning News column wondering what the great USC, coming in from the land of Hollywood, would think about Waco. (The next day, Baylor lost on a last second field goal by USC despite crazy high winds coming out of no where right before the kick. Most in the stadium were joking before the play that it was Divine Intervention for the winds to blow into the kicker's face. )

    And I do feel like I just told a story like Jason Garrett would.
