Bag of Randomness for Monday, May 4, 2020


I bought the wrong innertube for my bicycle, it has a Presta valve instead of the traditional and more common Schrader valve. I bought an adapter but I still can’t figure out how to air up my tire.


I’m hearing great things about the final season of the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars. I’ve never watched any of them, so I thought I’d try to binge-watch them, but the kids caught me watching one, and now it’s something I’m having to watch with them. Honestly, I just wanted to watch them by myself so I can get through as many as I can unabated, soon the kids will think watching stuff with dad with be uncool, so I’ll take advantage of it when I can.


A lot of couples are frustrated their weddings had to be postponed due to COVID-19, but I’m certain there’s a lot of cold feet fiancés out there that were secretly relieved.


Our church, like I’m sure most other churches, were planning an Olympic-themed vacation Bible school. Now with the Olympics canceled, they will be changing the theme to something else. Personally, I’m surprised it’s just not canceled outright.

I thought Texas Agricultural Commissioner Sid Miller came off well on 60 Minutes last night. He was advocating for rural counties and how hard they are being hit by COVID-19. They even showed him loading medical supplies in the back of his truck, driving to rural communities, and helping to unload them.

    I saw Secretariat at Claiborne Farms in the late 1970s during a tour of Kentucky breeding farms. Truly exceptional thoroughbred. The paddock attendant showing our small group around warned us to stay away from the fence. Seems that the Great Horse was a prima donna and a biter. The attendant said he was an easy breeder, but anybody who handled him had teeth marks eventually.

    I don’t want to insult you, but you ARE unscrewing that metal cap on the Schrader valve before you try to inflate it? Unscrew it to the end of that thread and then it will go down and enable your pump to fill it.

      I think you meant Presta valve, not Schrader. I was completely ignorant with my first encounter but after some research I found what you explained. The reason I was having so much trouble was that I was using an air compressor and the tool and adapter weren’t hitting that middle needle looking part. So after tugging on the valve a bit more and screwing the adapter further down I was able to get it to work.
