Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts

  • I finally watched the new episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm.  That stuff is funny. Very funny.
  • Big girl claims she was fired for a photo shoot
  • Mark Cuban is talking about a presidential run. I'll take him in a heartbeat and I can't stand the guy.
  • Two Baylor football players have been kicked off the team for "undisclosed reasons" but the coach says it is not criminal conduct. If you might not win a game in your first year, you might as well send a message there is a new sheriff in town.
  • TMZ is pretty good at breaking news.
  • There are images now appearing of the Mandalay Bay shooter's room. They were leaked. Go find them if you wish. One is hard to look at. 
  • Oddest comment from the Sheriff yesterday regarding the shooting: “I want to understand the motivation that you described, okay, to prevent any future incidents, and, you know, did this person get radicalized unbeknownst to us? And we want to identify that source.”
  • Let the conspiracy theories begin!: 
  • Nothing perks me up more than Fox 4's Clarice Tinsley reading tweets. 
  • Asking someone "what do you think?" shows two things: (1) You are admitting you need help, and (2) It shows them you respect their opinion. And I'm not talking about do it for show. If you never ask for advice or help, you are a fool.
  • See, I'm not the only one: 
  • Our future is bright: 
  • The story isn't clear on how the damages were allocated so I can't tell if tort reform laws will bring it down. But that's a heck of verdict in this day and time. (A couple got hit head on and blamed a car repair company. It's like the 1980s all over again.) 
  • Former NFL Coach and broadcaster John Madden never flew because he would have panic attacks on airplanes. I used to laugh at stuff like that. I no longer do. Everyone is different. Everyone has there own issues. 
  • Amazon is looking to build a huge second headquarters and the metroplex is going crazy trying to get them. Uh, Wise County? Along the south border close to Haslet? Why not?
