Random Friday Morning Thoughts


- Very interesting last meal of the guy the State Of Texas killed two days ago.
- I always like the Fort Worth Weekly alternative magazine but I can never remember to track it down.
- Stumbled upon David Letterman last night. Still not that funny.
- While listening to the radio last night, I heard on The Ticket that the Lakers were up by 20+ in the first quarter over the Celtics so "it looks like the series will end up tied 2-2." Uh, not so fast.
- Crazy pic from the floods in the midwest.
- Craziest dream the other night: Brad Pitt and I had to stand side by side in front of a crowd with our shirts off.
- Random South Korea baseball game pic.
- I've always been suspicious of the number of fat grams in those "guiltless" items on the menu at Chili's. But not enough to sue about it.
- Which reminds me of the "skinny enchiladas" at Don Pablo's. I could have sworn I heard the chain was going out of business, and I'm pretty sure the one in Grapevine has shut down. But I saw the one on Rufe Snow opened the other day.
- Not sure what the big controversy is about the new x-ray machine at DFW Airport that allows screeners to see, in essence, your body naked. If I went through it the only one offended would be the screener.
- How do they get the money out of that Currency Plant along 287 in North Fort Worth? Do they just load up a krillion dollars in a truck? Does it have armed escorts? Air support?
- And I took a tour of that place once and got to see the warehouse of what had to be millions of dollars of bills. Absolutely fascinating.
- Almost threw up last night watching Fox 4 story about the crane accident at the new Cowboys stadium. For some reason they interviewed a Plaintiff's lawyer who opined that the incident was probably due to "human error." (Note: Tell OSHA that the case has been solved.)
- Funny scene on Fox 4 this morning when Tim was dancing at the desk to that "Apple bottom jeans" song with Meagan (still hawt) looking at him like he was crazy.
- Baylor and SMU have agreed to a six year deal in football. They will probably all end in a scoreless tie.
- A couple days ago, Lockheed Martin test flew it's new "F-35 Lightning II". Being a fighter pilot would be cool. Being the first one to fly a newly designed plane would be stressful.
- Just realized it was Friday the 13th. Where did that superstition come from? And I don't remember anything bad every happening on the day.
- Funny sight in Fort Worth yesterday: Lady on the back of a Ninja motorcycle wearing one of those face covering cloths (like an Indian or Muslim or whatever). But get this: She was riding side saddle. Tried to get a pic but failed.

I also had a dream about Brad Pitt. He came out to help me design a house on my land. We decided on a round concrete 2 story structure(something I've always thought a cool idea). He said,"I like the idea but where did it come from." I said,"When I was a kid there was a silo near our house that a boy went crazy in and I never forgot it" He said,How?" I said,"He said he needed to pee so his dad told him,"Go into that silo and find a corner to pee in." Brad Pitt started cracking up like it was the best joke he ever heard. He did that no matter what I said. He hung on every word and wouldn't leave to go back to wherever-He'd say,"I'm hanging with you dude!" Everywhere I went people thought it was the coolest thing that Brad Pitt was with me. He drove me crazy. It seemed like the dream lasted the entire night.

Letterman does have a funny bit everynight that lasts about a minute - "Great Moment in Presidential Speeches". That alone is worth watching. I usually turn it off after that.
He takes real footage from Presidents - I've seen Truman, Reagan, FDR, Kennedy, Eisenhower making profound statements & then he ends with Dubya - real footage - so funny (or sad).

Those eighteen-wheelers moving the money may look normal, but they aren't. They are all heavily-armored trucks and the drivers are armed. They just look normal so that a criminal might not be able to know which truck was hauling the money.

Obammy will provide Letterman with double the material if elected.

Why is it that whenever you're standing in a group with some hot chicks,your nose starts itching and you can tell there's booger just barely hangin out your nose and you have to duck your head down when you talk to one of them?

How can one reasonably comment on the vast number of "random thots" or follow the comments that are submitted? Just too random.

One time we had an English teacher who was most fine. She would roll her chair out from her desk to talk to us. She had long,tan,shiny legs. One time while I was enjoying them she called on me to come read in front of the class. I had a ginormic erection. Some peoples eyes just got real big and they stared like they were seeing a car wreck they couldn't turn away from. Some buried their heads in their hands on their desks. Finally,nearly everybody sputtered out a laugh at the same time and then started cracking up, including the teacher. People in the next class heard it and their teacher assumed ours must be out of the room so he came over to check. News of my performance travelled like wildfire.
Yeah,it's been pretty much downhill for me from that point.

The men on death row were moved from the Huntsville Unit to the Ellis Unit in 1965. Death row remained at the Ellis Unit until 1999. In 1999, the TDCJ moved death row to the Polunsky Unit. The Polunsky Unit houses death row offenders separately in single-person cells measuring 60 square feet, with each cell having a window. Death row offenders are also recreated individually. Offenders on death row receive a regular diet, have access to reading, writing, and legal materials. Depending upon their custody level, some death row offenders are allowed to have a radio. The women on death row are housed at the Mountain View Unit. Offenders on death row do not have regular TDCJ-ID numbers, but have special death row numbers.-From TDCJ site.
No wonder we can't kill 'em fast enough: Offenders are re created right the at the prison. Sheesh

Hey Barry.....question....
You posted...."Not sure what the big controversy is about the new x-ray machine at DFW Airport that allows screeners to see, in essence, your body naked. If I went through it the only one offended would be the screener."

My question is this.....what if you took your 16 year old daughter on a trip with you?........or daughters...?
Would you still feel the indifference about some stranger seeing all their body parts?.....
HHHmmmnnnn?

I give it two weeks until the body images start showing up on the internet.

Random comments:
what I heard on TV this morning was that the person putting you thru the screener is not the same one looking at your x-ray. That person is in another room, and signals the first one if anything unusual is seen. So, they can't point and laugh at you (or leer), not in person, anyway. But I agree that the images will probably start showing up on the interwebs.
The last couple of times I have gone to Don Pablo's, it has sucked really bad. I would not be surprised if they did go out of business.
The cranes are all being sabotaged by terrorists. They are trying to deprive us of our God-given right to exploit illegal aliens, and bring commercial construction to a halt
How can random "thots" be "too random"? Are there degrees of randomness?
I'm just sayin'

Why sould we care if someone can see your "body parts?" Apparently your face is blurred out so what really could be seen that so noteworthy?

Or Dead in Life, like WordKyle. He is so miserable. Has not life because he is so worried about Commies, Socialist, Liberals, he overlooks Nazis, Mean China Commies (Actually Hard Core Right Wingers without a "Social-Commie-RepublicaNazi" label that he probably cannot sleep at night.
Lets all pray for Wordie so he can feel better about himself and sleep somewhat better. I will start: "Oh Lord, Please let assholes like Word see the light and understand that he can be for things that help his fellow man and not hurt Rich Americans too much. Amen"

Letterman has lost a step or two, but he's still 10x funnier than Jay Lame-o.

I like the fact he's constantly paying homage to Johnny Carson.
