Wednesday Morning Random Thoughts


- Just saw a funny CarMax commercial. A guy is strapping a child seat to the top of a new Porsche with duct tape. He complains that "he doesn't have enough room for his dang baby" despite the fact "he's no bigger than a canned ham."
- Channel 5 traffic news where they tell you how long it will take you between destinations "21 minutes between 350 and I-35E" is silly.
- On whether or not Tarrant County needs a "crime integrity unit" to check for false convictions, here's what long-time DA Tim Curry said: "God forbid that we'd be like the Dallas County of the past with its Henry Wade syndrome of conviction at all costs." Wow.
- On Friday, Mav's player Josh Howard admitted on local radio that he used pot in the off-season. ESPN got so excited that it led with the story on it's evening sportscast. Fallout: No one cared.
- So confusing.
- Just saw a clip of Paula Abdul from last night's Idol. Does she stay high?
- Matt Lauer is in Laos this morning.
- A trooper was shot and killed last night in far East Texas.
- Take a look around. It's a green and as lush as you'll see for months.
- Saw a dead dog on College Street this morning. Big. Black. Green collar. Nice coat. Some owner is going to be very sad.

A billion dollars says the shooter was black the trooper white. As a side I'll further state the news people knew the dude was black and wouldn't print that because that and a vehicle description was all they knew.
I'll read the link and check up on updates to the story but, these kinds of bets are nearly always safe.

The Mascot on the toilet, pinching a loaf and reading the paper, with his back turned, while "Little Kobe (Rapist)" is introduced is Frick'in classic!! Talk about being crapped on and showing no respect for the guy, you gotta love it.

So 8:58, how stupid did you feel after you actually read the link and realized both the shooter and and trooper were WHITE?!

Dallas Norning News site puts the oxious in obnoxious. Popups and flyouts going off right and left and navigating out is like trying to get away from a porn site or so I've been told anyway.
I wish Barr's posts would come with a warning, ie "DMN obnoxiousosity ahead" or something

8:58's point would stand even if wrong on this one. 85% of crimes committed in this country are by a black male age 16-35(as I recall-won't be off by much anyway.)

I had a Fresca about six months ago. Not bad. As a kid, I hated diet drinks. As an adult, I am hooked on whatever drug they put in them nowadays. Fresca should make a marketing push.

When Fresca first came out, don't know if it is still true or not, but pouring it over vanilla ice cream made some kind of crystal reaction concoction. Pretty good.

Ya'll know the difference between a pump organ and a banjo?

The pump organ will burn longer.

8:58 - Let me take your racist bet. I'll put up a dollar to your billion. (a little additional information: it appears that it was a WHITE exCOP who did the shooting). So much for your idiotic stereotyping.
