Bag of Randomness for Wednesday, March 13, 2019

  • Whoever at the Justice Department came up with the name “Operation Varsity Blues” deserves a raise.
  • Yesterday, LiberallyLean mentioned the town of Wizard Wells. Never hearing of it before, I thought he was poking fun of my hometown of Mineral Wells, but he wasn’t.
  • I’ve watched both Creed movies. No disrespect to Micheal B. Jordan, but I think Carl Weathers looked bigger, was more cut, and much quicker. I also think Ivan Drago’s son would have gone into MMA instead of boxing.
    • Per IMDB – “Rocky, who is now training Apollo Creed’s son, is two years older than Mickey was when he trained Rocky in the original movie.”
  • Alphabet’s AI-powered Chrome extension hides toxic comments
    • Using “filter mix” controls, users can either turn toxic comments off altogether (what’s known as “zen mode”) or show selective types of posts containing attacks, insults, or profanity. Tune also works with Reddit, YouTube and Disqus.
  • The Songs That Saved Them From SuicideThe Science Around Music Therapy Is Nascent, But There’s No Doubt That It’s Already Saving Lives
  • Los Angeles Times – The official breakfast cereal power rankings: Part I
  • Senator Mitch Romney’s staff presented him with a birthday cake made of Twinkies, but the way he blew out the candles was a bit unique.

    Like the candle approach – keeps his ‘slobber’ off other people’s slices.

      exactly what I thought. It’s kind of cute when a 4 year-old does it (been there!), but not grown-ups

    Kinda surprised you never heard of Wizard Wells. The bath house was still running as late as the mid 90’s that I know of. Remember going to family reunions there as a kid.
