Bag of Randomness for Tuesday, January 28, 2020

There’s going to be a generation of folks who will grow up thinking the ABC News show 20/20 has something to do with this calendar year.

I’ve seen a lot of folks on social media mention the coronavirus is nothing to worry about and the coverage is overblown. But the one thing which makes me think it must be a big deal is that China is so concerned about it that they decided to build a 1,000-bed hospital in a mere 10 days. Ten days! Popular Mechanics states they are doing it in just six days.

If you’re wondering just how this is possible, Chinese officials have taken on such projects before, like when they built a similar temporary facility in Beijing during the 2003 SARS outbreak. Officials completed that hospital, which also held 1,000 beds, in just a week, by a workforce of over 7,000. Over the course of two months, the hospital staff treated nearly 15 percent of SARS patients there, according to the Post.

Not that I’m complaining, but I’m really surprised that Sarah Palin isn’t working for the Trump administration in some capacity. The same goes for Michele Bachmann and to a lesser extent, Rick Santorum. If Palin were president, I think she’d be more incompetent than the current president but in much less legal trouble.

Frank Sinatra’s Italian marble and gold-seated Las Vegas toilets are up for auction. Rumor has it the golden toilet seats were made out of Sammy Davis Jr.’s jewelry he lost in a bet to the Chairman of the Board. Yes, I totally fabricated that story.

An Irish Castle in Texas Full of Llamas

The castle, appropriately dubbed ShangriLlama, is a replica of Waterford Castle, situated near the south coast of Ireland.

The ShangriLlama replica is located about 40 minutes outside Dallas and is an ideal interactive experience for anyone who likes the South American animals or Irish castles.

  • Last I checked, the Abilene area wasn’t considered North Texas.
  • A hundred-and-fifty pounds didn’t sound like much to me, but actually seeing a picture of it frightens me.

    Rick Santorum is a fairly regular panelist on the CNN evening shows, like pretty much every night. I’m sure that pays better and doesn’t carry near the exposure or tough schedule of an administration job. What on earth would Sarah Palin be qualified to do, not that there has been much of a gold standard for qualifications when it comes to work in the Trump administration (I’m looking at you, Rick Perry)? Michele Bachmann has had a pretty low profile since retirement and there’s not even anything listed beyond that on her Wikipedia page (and you know what Michael Scott said about Wikipedia’s reliability).

    That mountain lion photo is insane.
