Bag of Randomness for Tuesday, November 5, 2019

  • I’m thinking all playing cards should be made like the ones above, it’s much easier to hold in your hands.
  • Welp,  as I expected, DaughterGeeding didn’t make the middle school basketball team, but I admire her for trying and trying to achieve something despite the odds being stacked against her. She had a good attitude about the whole thing. My only complaint is that only parents of players who made the team received an email, the parents of those who didn’t make the team were never informed. I would have preferred everyone be informed at the same time.
  • While watching the Cowboys game last night, WifeGeeding wondered why Jason Witten was wearing a Darth Vadar patch on his jersey. In the most nonjudgemental way, I informed her it’s the Walter Payton Man of the Year patch which previous winners wear. She’s not the first to make that mistake or comparison.
  • That black cat running on the field was some great entertainment. It would have been neater if this happened back on Monday Night Football during its glory years, there’s no telling what Don Meredith or Howard Cosell wold have said.
  • CVS rejects Purdue student’s Puerto Rican ID, asks for immigration papers to buy cold medicine
    • When he showed his ID – one that met the Real ID criteria – a clerk told him it wasn’t enough. “She said I needed a visa,” Guzman Payano said. “I tried to explain that Puerto Rico was part of the United States. I didn’t need a visa or anything. She just said the same thing three times.” He said he had his passport, so he showed that, with no luck. He said the store employee told him he still needed to see some sort of immigration status before he could buy the cold medicine.
  • What does a solar eclipse look like from the edge of space?

    Pretty much any other announcing crew than the ESPN mess would have been more entertaining with the cat, but I would have enjoyed hearing Al Michaels, Summerall/Madden, and Buck/Aikman.

    The eclipse video is a million kinds of cool. The dog video is not. I can’t unsee that.

    Wow! The Puerto Rican college student even had his U. S. Passport (because all citizens of Puerto Rico ARE U. S. citizens). CVS needs to do some deep and broad retraining when the front line employee and then manger screws up like that. Thank goodness that kid wasn’t from Guam. That would have blown the minds of the CVS staff.

    I have first hand experience with Puerto Rico IDs. There used to be an issue about the driver license authenticity, but that was cleared up years ago. They are acceptable as US identification now. Anyone that doesn’t accept one is not up to date on the guidelines.
