Bag of Randomness for Wednesday, January 11, 2023

  • I’ve never really been a breakfast person. Don’t get me wrong, I love breakfast food, and will eat it anytime of the day, I just don’t really eat during breakfast time.
  • Bacon is over-rated. It’s only great when crispy.
  • CBS Sunday Morning had a nice interview with Mark Cuban about him trying to disrupt the prescription drug market with transparent pricing. While it is a bit odd it’s named after him, Mark Cuban Cost Plus Drugs, I like it how he said he wants to put his reputation on the line and cuts out the middleman to save money. It’s almost too good to be true.
    • Cost Plus deals directly with manufacturers and consumers, offering more profits for those who make drugs, and lower prices for those who take them. His prescription for pricing = the drug’s cost, plus 15% for Cost Plus, plus a $3 pharmacy fee, plus $5 shipping.
  • Last weekend my kids asked me what it was like growing up in the ’80s. So, I took their phones and tablets off them, locked them outside and told them not to come back till the street lamps came on.
  • A Dutch supermarket chain introduced slow checkouts for people who enjoy chatting, helping many people, especially the elderly, deal with loneliness. The move has proven so successful that they installed the slow checkouts in 200 stores.
  • Rebuilding your life is hard.
  • “There’s power in sharing.”
  • I really admire Prince Harry and will try to explain it later.
  • Texas universities propose two-year tuition freeze in exchange for nearly $1 billion in additional state fundingThe leaders of the state’s six biggest university systems are seeking the money to fund instruction, university operations and employee health insurance and to cover a free tuition program for veterans and their children.
  • It’s nice to see the Baker Hotel in Mineral Wells no longer has broken windows. It’s a nice facelift.
