Random Thoughts 12/20/11

  • This is a bad week for my migraines to come back.
  • Poor KU.  It looks like this might be 23-8 or 21-10 season.  That said, KU's off years are still better than some schools can hope for in a good year.
  • KU got a commit from a highly-ranked high school player, Brannen Greene.  KU is looking at huge waves of talent coming in 2012 and 2013.  Hopefully they all hit the books and stay eligible.
  • North Korea's (meager) nuclear arsenal is now in the hands of the youngest-ever leader of a nuclear power.  The late Kim Jong-il's youngest son, Kim Jong-un, is in his late twenties and surprising plump for living in country known for starvation and famine.
  • This is why everyone who wants your dollar hates Apple's iPad.
  • Keeping up with my Shopkick app has earned me $125 in iTunes gift cards over the last year.  That's just enough to keep up with the music my wife and kids keep downloading.  If you start using Shopkick, use my referral code to get more points for both of us, squirrel2482.
  • It's not too late to buy a gift through Gospel for Asia.  Buy a cow or a radio or a rickshaw or a fishing net or a Bible or many other things for people in need around the world.
