Random Thoughts 11/19/20

  • I don't care what you think; "junk" is not an acceptable euphemism in mixed company.  If I keep hearing it (anywhere outside the locker room) I think my brain is going to explode.  It's not clever!  Stop it, really.
  • A Twin Cities couple have put their decision to abort their baby up as an internet poll.  Seriously.  On how many levels is this offensive?  And if you vote "abort" how do you sleep at night?  You're not voting for "choice," they already have that.  You're voting "kill, kill, kill!"  Way to go, society.  Our civilization has officially jumped the shark.
  • KU ties a record with a home win tonight, which will be a nation-leading 62 home wins in a row.
  • I hardly see Shannon anymore.  She's been working a few shifts at the Y, including a get up at four in the morning shift, putting her squarely on Greenwich Mean Time (but she's still living in Kansas).  How rotten is that, working almost half of your shift before the sun comes up?
  • This week's episode of NBC's comedy, "Outsourced," was the funniest show I'd seen this month.  In January, NBC's Thursday nights are going to be six back-to-back comedies, including "Outsourced," "The Office," "Community," "Parks and Recreation," "30 Rock," and a new show.
  • For those of us who like apps, Android's fragmentation is causing difficultyApple's iOS is accused of being "closed" but the alternative is "fragmented," with various Android handsets all having different requirements to make an app work correctly.
