Bag of Randomness for Friday, April 21, 2017

  • I think a cleaning service left this business card on my front door, but looking at the email address, it might be an escort service.
  • I can’t remember if I ever provided an update on our neighbor with the handgun. Remember, our kids played with his kids at his house, but our kids talked about how there’s a gun in the closet. I spoke with the neighbor, a very friendly fellow. He owns two gas stations and carries the gun the work. He was very open and ever appreciative of me asking him about it, but he assured me that when he’s home it’s under lock and key, and it always leaves with him when he walks out the door.
  • I saw some German dark wheat bread at the grocery store and decided to roll the dice since I never heard of it. Not bad, very dense and a slight hint of rye. Here’s a bit more about it:
    • It is neither white nor starchy, a common characteristic associated with the better known European bread varieties of countries like Italy and France. Rather, it is coarse and unrefined, composed mainly of whole grains, such as rye, spelt, millet, and wheat – usually in pure form giving it a density that far outweighs any fluffy focaccia, oily ciabatta, or slender French baguette.
  • I have no issue with Kid Rock and Ted Nugent visiting the Oval Office, but it just didn’t set well with me they didn’t remove their hats. Maybe it’s because Nugent is a Texan and I feel Texas men should know better, and I thought as patriotic as Kid Rock is, he would have done it out of reverence.
  • Not sure how this came up, but WifeGeeding and I were wondering how many states have at least one Dairy Queen? This was the first result in Google, and it’s a bit dated, but I thought it was interesting a bit surprising:
    • Currently, there are more DQs in the Lone Star State, 575, than in the next two states combined. Illinois has 270, Minnesota, 254. There are Dairy Queens in every state but Vermont. In 48 states, one Dairy Queen is pretty much like the other, but Texas is a world unto itself, DQ wise.
  • Sports Illustrated – What If? A journey into sports’ greatest hypotheticals
    • For Dallas residents, our biggest “what if?” doesn’t appear – What if Jerry Jones didn’t fire Jimmy Johnson?
  • ‘I hope one of your kids gets raped,’ Arlington council candidate reportedly tweeted to lawmaker’s wife

    But not every Dairy Queen is created equal. One memory of my great-grandma was the trips to Dairy Queen in Sweetwater, Texas where we would all order a "Dude" sandwich. To this day we still go to Dairy Queen on what would be her birthday. December of 2015 my then fiance, now wife moved out to North Carolina. It hurt a little last year when we went and discovered that it is a regional menu item and not available here in Raleigh.

    It makes me wonder what other items that they have that we have never seen.

    Tinnitus is no joke. I suffer from it after a "Should-have-known-better" day at the farm shooting a new rifle without hearing protection. Most days its very manageable, but some days its incredibly irritating.

    Please, please, please use hearing protection around any loud noises, or noise that is constant.

      I didn't do anything wrong, and I still suffer from tinnitus. No fun.

    • RPM says:

      I have it pretty bad. Too many years of straight exhausts, guns and loud radios. 2:32 is the exact sound I hear constantly.

      I say "huh?" a lot.

    It's hard to feel sorry for Tony Tinderholt's wife when the guy she married is a bigoted pig who opposed gay marriage citing the "sanctity of marriage" when he's been married 5 times.

    You're actually rationalizing someone threatening a child with rape. Think about that for a minute.
