Bag of Randomness for Tuesday, December 10, 2019

  • I love WFAA’s Jesse Hawila’s brutal and honest approach.
  • For some reason, the basement of the Alamo was left off this list – The 25 Rooms That Influence the Way We Design
  • To my good friend who recently moved and changed his email addresses and phone numbers – I’m sending emails to your new email address and replied to your messages, but I don’t think you are receiving them.
  • It’s always a bummer to read about medication your taking which helps you live a somewhat normal life, to maintain functionality, might be more dangerous than thought, in particular when it comes to depression and suicide. And, I’m a bloke who thinks about suicide daily. (Don’t go freaking out on me, I’m too chicken or lazy to go through with it and never came close to writing a letter.)
    • Chronic Pain Is an Impossible ProblemA “safe” alternative to opioid painkillers turns out to be not so safe.
      • Though gabapentin and baclofen are much safer alternatives to opioids, recent research suggests that they’re not as safe as some doctors might have hoped, especially in combination with other sedating medications. The findings are a frustrating turn that suggests there’s still no silver bullet for chronic pain.
  • Georgia Youth Minister Tommy Callaway Caught Groping Reporter On Live TV
    • For some reason, almost every article about this doesn’t state his church or denomination affiliation. Since this happened in Georgia, I automatically assumed he was affiliated with a Southern Baptist church; however, he could have been Mormon, Church of Christ, or even another religion. In actuality, he is associated with a United Methodist church. It appears he’s a part-time youth minister as he has a fulltime job working at a tobacco company. That doesn’t excuse him, but I think it’s worth mentioning. I’m curious if he volunteers and isn’t on the church payroll, which I think is an important distinction.
    • This man slapped the reporter’s bottom. I confess to being ignorant regarding terminology. I thought “grope” meant or implied having a firm grip on something for at least several seconds, and thus, a slap wouldn’t be constituted as a grope. I’m wrong, and neither action is acceptable.
  • A study by WalletHub ranks the quality of care at Texas nursing homes last in the nation.
  • How Artists on Twitter Tricked Spammy T-Shirt Stores Into Admitting Their Automated Art Theft

    I think the Georgia youth minister misunderstood the concept of Laying on of Hands. Just saying.

    Keith, I just discovered this even though it is a year old. A Christmas dose of ‘Murica?
