Bag of Randomness for Friday, February 18, 2022

  • You can’t get any more right-wing than that. She’s even showered in red. At least she put Jesus ahead of Guns. Though, I expect the order is different in her heart.
  • Jamaica has a four-man bobsled team back at the Olympics for the first time in 24 years.
  • I always thought certain fast-food establishment’s soft drinks tasted better than others. – The Real Reason McDonald’s Sprite Tastes Different
    • McDonald’s uses a high syrup-to-carbonated water ratio, which results in a sweeter and stronger version of the drink than can be had at other fast-food restaurants or that is found in cans and bottles. McDonald’s also uses high-end filtration systems to filter its water so that the Sprite concentrate isn’t just being mixed with sparkling water from the tap — it’s being mixed with bottled water-quality water, with no impurities that could affect the taste. The company claims to filter its water twice as much as its competitors.
  • One thing I miss about parenting with a spouse is talking through stuff like all the current news about book banning. It would be great to know her thoughts and see where we are alike or differ. But, not only is she not having any of that kind of talk. Anything I say would eventually come back to haunt me, most likely misquoted and from her lawyer.
  • Not that divorced parents compete with each other when it comes to gifting birthday presents, but it sure does feel good when your son tells you his two presents were the best of the bunch. What’s better is that both of them didn’t cost me more than eight bucks. Both of them were magic tricks. One, a pair of double-sided quarters and a trick deck of cards in which you can tell the card from the back. He had a blast performing tricks at school the next day.
  • There’s going to be a three night Doris Kearns Goodwin Lincoln special this weekend on the History channel. Unfortunately, I’m a YouTube TV subscriber and the channel isn’t part of my package.
  • Her eyes freak me out – Mom decapitates 6-year-old son and dog, claims the devil was speaking to her, police say
  • I haven’t found one person who had a positive comment to say about this Nicole Kidman cover. One of my friends is certain the 54-year-old has had plastic surgery. I’m bad at being able to spot those things.
  • This is some cool footage.
