Bag of Randomness for Tuesday, November 19, 2019

  • I get a kick at the practicality of my kids. Last night I couldn’t figure out all the racket coming from upstairs, it simply turned out to be my kids making and playing with their own air hockey table. I have a feeling I know what Santa will be dropping off this year.
  • Here’s a video of a guy who made a bowling ball that will steer left and right depending on how you lean.
  • Something which has been under the radar is the potential of another government shutdown which would happen midnight on Thursday. Should this happen, yours truely would most like be affected. I’m curious to know if it’s going to be used as some sort of bargaining chip.
  • With so many television reboots, I’m surprised The Fall Guy hasn’t made a comeback. I once had a Fall Guy metal lunch box that I treasured, third grade I think.

    ‘Cause I’m the unknown stuntman that makes Eastwood look so fine.
  • I made a Julia Sugarbaker reference the other day and not a person in the room had to ask who she was, I guess that gives you an idea of how old the people in the room were.  I’ll be honest, I had no idea Meshack Taylor died (colorectal cancer, 2014), but always thought he had a cool name. It’s nice to see Annie Potts and Jean Smart still at work. Smart is a much better actress than I thought she could be. Delta Burke, from my limited research, has a part in the new Dolly Parton Netflix series.
  • ‘I puked, fouled myself and collapsed – it was great’: Meet the record-breaking ultra marathon runner fuelled by beer and burritos
  • ‘Jeopardy!’s All-Time Top Money Winners To Face Off In Primetime Tourney: Holzhauer, Jennings & Rutter
    • I love how this is going to be on primetime but surprised at the number of games that will and may possibly be played. I’m sure everyone is thinking and hoping Alex Trebek will be healthy enough to host, and a part of me believes one reason this came to be was to give him something to look forward to.

    I really enjoy Annie Potts in Young Sheldon and Jean Smart in both Legion and Watchmen. It’s unusual for an actor to have a big role in both a Marvel and DC series. Remembering Designing Women makes me smile 🙂

    A few years back I went on eBay and purchased one of my childhood treasures lost long ago – a Steve Canyon lunchbox and matching thermos. I am embarrassed by how much I had to bid to win the items. It now has an honored space on my bookcase shelf.
    PS – On the inside of the box lid, it had a graphic of several of the top 1950s and 1960s military aircraft. Great stuff!

    I had that exact same “The Fall Guy” lunchbox and thermos. It’s amazing that just an image of that lunchbox brings back detailed memories of school lunches, the smell of the school cafeteria, etc. (Incidentally, I can’t remember what I had for breakfast yesterday, but I can recall every lyric to “The Fall Guy” theme song.)

    I would LOVE to see a Fall Guy reboot, but they would have to retool the heck out of it for today’s culture. That pickup wasn’t the only thing bouncing around on screen.
