Bag of Randomness for Monday, March 11, 2019

  • WifeGeeding’s friend created that college of me as a child (middle), DaughterGeeding (left), and BoyGeeding (right). I love it. I never took the time to compare what I looked like as a child to my children. I mean, I have mentally, but never with the pictures next to one another.
  • The wife and kids are in East Texas visiting family during spring break.  you can only imagine the parties will be throwing at GeedingManor the next few days.
  • It turns out I correctly diagnosed the problem with the refrigerator water dispenser, the water valve was defective after all. We bought that refrigerator at a Sears outlet back in January of 2005 and only had to have it repaired once, maybe twice. The average life expectancy for a properly maintained refrigerator is between 14 and 17 years, so we are in that window.
  • We watched Captain Marvel this weekend and really enjoyed it. It was set in 1995, but I was a little disappointed it didn’t have more subtle 90’s references. Sure, there were obvious ones like dialup internet and a Blockbuster. But I wanted to see a Ford Probe or a Chevy Beretta in the background. Marvel does a great job of storytelling and using commercials and trailers to make you think things will develop one way only to take you another.
  • While I was excited to see Captain Marvel, I have to admit I was probably just as giddy to see the end credits scenes to piece together things for the next Avengers movie. Here are a few non-spoiler theories:
    • Many fans have questioned why Nick Fury hasn’t used the pager before. I bet we find out he has and he either couldn’t answer or has appeared before and no one knew it.
    • I bet we’ll see Captain Marvel at the moment the pager goes off.
  • Superhero movies are such a great escape for me. I escape this reality and get lost in another one for a few hours and leave feeling like a kid again.
  • GIF – Star Trek fans should enjoy this underwater Enterprise.
  • Thirty years from now, I bet the number of fighter pilots actually flying in cockpits will drop by more than 50%. Most fighter jets will be operated remotely or AI.
  • Nature is a patient sculpture.
