Bag of Randomness for Friday, March 4, 2022

  • It’s a very busy weekend for us. Today, my DaughterGeeding plays in her very first softball game at a tournament in east Dallas at 11:00 AM. Her next game is at 3:00 PM, but I’ll miss that as I have to pick up BoyGeeding from school in Lewisville. We’ll both drive from Lewisville back to east Dallas to make her 7:00 PM game. Then, on Saturday, BoyGeeding has his first soccer game of the season at 1:15 PM in Little Elm. DaughterGeeding will also have a game on Saturday, but we won’t know the time because it depends on how well her team performs on Friday.
  • My old model Nissan Leaf will not be able to have enough power to make it to all these places, and there’s not a charging station at the softball fields. So, luckily, I have a friend who is letting me borrow his car. But, I may have to rent one on Saturday depending on how things go. You may recall I let my ex have the gas-powered vehicle in the divorce to make things easier on her and the kids.
  • I reached out to my ex to see if she wanted to coordinate things for both Friday and Saturday, but have heard nothing back nor do I expect to. At first, she reached out about Friday, but since we are both taking the day off, it kinda worked itself out. I never wanted to be a single parent, but I’ll do what I have to.
  • Yesterday was also a bit of a challenge. BoyGeeding’s soccer practice in Flower Mound started at 5:30 PM, but I had to pick up DaughterGeeding in Carrolton from softball practice at 6:00 PM, and then make it back to Flower Mound to pick up BoyGeeding at 6:30 PM.
  • Russian oligarchs are in the news. I’m too lazy to look it up, but are there other types of oligarchs than Russian ones?
  • Texas company convicted for supplying potentially tainted rocket fuel to NASA
  • If this is true, I’m extremely disappointed in Shaq – Shaquille O’Neal allegedly hazed NBA rookies by pooping and peeing in a bucket for a week and then dumping it on them, according to his former Los Angeles Lakers and Miami Heat teammate Gary Payton.
  • Google tests an even darker ‘dark mode’ for its Android app
  • In a first, a mysterious rocket part is about to slam into the moon — by accident
    • Traveling at an estimated 3.3 miles per second, the hunk of metal, now believed to be left over from a 2014 Chinese lunar mission (Gray originally identified it as a SpaceX rocket booster), is expected to make a crater 65-feet long — about the size of a tractor-trailer, and smash into who-knows-how-many pieces. Though NASA and the European Space Agency weren’t monitoring the high-flying space junk — hardly anyone does — they have given credibility to the findings, confirming the crash forecast. The impact will happen at 7:26 a.m. EST.
  • I hope this is true.
