Bag of Randomness for Thursday, July 14, 2022

  • Happy Bastille Day.
  • I have this personal rule that if I’m surfing radio channels and come across a Phil Collins song, I don’t change the station. Why? Because it’s Phil Collins.
  • One of my son’s favorite snack foods is the Goldfish cracker. As much as I’ve been around the snack, I’ve never tasted it and have no desire to.
  • I bought a toaster oven yesterday and I’m not sure why.
  • Smoked BBQ pork ribs would taste good right now.
  • Barbara Jordan was an eloquent speaker and would have made a great Supreme Court Justice.
  • You hear nothing about Sandra Day O’Conner. In case you are wondering, she’s 92, and she stepped down all the way back in 2006.
  • Yesterday, I looked up the difference between Attorney General and Solicitor General because I had no idea what the latter did. Here’s what I found:
    • The Attorney General serves as the legal adviser to the government and other executive agencies. The Solicitor General has the additional task of deciding which cases must be appealed by the government, concentrating primarily on appeals to the Supreme Court.
  • If you’re a Breaking Bad fan and not watching Better Call Saul, you are doing yourself a disservice.
  • I want everyone to like me. That’s a problem.
  • Mexico agrees to provide $1.5 billion to help U.S. manage migrants on southern border
  • Man Arrested in Alleged Slaying of Fisherman Out of Fear of Being Eaten by Bigfoot
  • The $100 Trillion Global Economy in One Chart
  • Ms Marvel: The India-Pakistan trauma at the heart of the show
    • Critics have praised the six-episode show for depicting that traumatic event with nuance and sensitivity. The partition, which happened at the end of British colonial rule in India, was the biggest movement of people in history, outside war and famine. About 12 million people became refugees and between 500,000 and a million people were killed in religious violence.
