RANDOM THOUGHTS: EUROPEAN DEBT

European debt continues to dominant that news.  To take advantage of the interest, there's a new reality TV show, "The Wheel of Debt". Customers spin the wheel to bet on which European country goes into default first. There's no winners. There's just the satisfaction of picking the loser and being right. And then there's the sure-hit, "Survivor Euro" in which European countries vie to see who gets voted out of the euro zone first. Greece is the odds-on favorite. Speaking of Greece, the hard-pressed country is nearing an agreement for a plan that would let it repay part of its obligations with feta cheese. Read more...

RANDOM THOUGHTS: AIRLINES MORE TRUTHFUL

The airlines are getting more truthful. After the person at the desk gave the call for “first class, platinum elite, families with younger children, military personnel, people we feel like letting onboard early”, she then added, “and the rest of you riff raff.” Then when the usual announcements were being made, the flight attendant said, “In case the cabin loses pressure, oxygen masks will drop. Those in first class, please put them on. In coach, you can start the flow of air by tapping the cord with a major credit card. You can also insert cash in the slot above your head.” Read more...

RANDOM THOUGHTS: GREEK DEBT

ParthenonLas Vegas bookmakers are taking bets as to which happens first, the U.S. government shuts down in a funding dispute or Greece is auctioned off.  “And what do I hear for the Parthenon? Think how this would look on your lot. A fixer upper that will make you the envy of your neighbors.” Who has the over-under on a U.S. default? Read more...

RANDOM THOUGHTS; OCCUPY WALL STREET

Occupy Wall Street has influenced other protest movements. There’s the Occupy Sesame Street movement in which those camping out are insisting on equal rights for animated characters and Occupy Elm Street in which Freddie Krueger and other  protesters demand an end to meaningless horror movie sequels.

RANDOM THOUGHTS: THE AXIS OF EVIL

The Axis of Evil has taken another blow with the death of Moammar Qadafy (and we'll spend less time figure out how to translate his name from Arabic.)  As Moammar follows the late Saddam Hussein to wherever these guys go, it's becoming more the Broken Axel of Evil. Read more...

RANDOM THOUGHTS; THE DALAI LAMA

Just visited the Dalai Lama’s Twitter page.  He has 2.65 million followers but he follows no one. Well, of course. … And in our look at the future for news 100 years from now. From the pre-archives for 2112: “European leaders think they are closer to a solution to the Greek debt crisis.” Read more...

RANDOM THOUGHTS: WESLEY SNIPES

One of those product-oriented TV channels features a program called “Wesley Snipes Uses Total Gym.” Snipes, now serving time for tax evasion, is apparently using the gym behind bars as he prepares for his latest movie “Snakes in a Cell”, in which Snipes replaces the original “Snakes” star, Samuel L. Jackson. Read more...

RANDOM THOUGHTS: COLLEGE CONFERENCE MATH.

big 10 logoWith the shifting memberships of college sports conferences, I believed it’s time to provide a clear description of the campus sports affiliations. First, there are 12 teams in the Big 10. That’s as opposed to the Big 12 which has 10 teams and could have nine with Texas A&M leaves in July, more or less depending on who comes and goes. Read more...

RANDOM THOUGHTS: THE COFFEE PARTY

There’s a new political group that calls itself the Coffee Party. It’s like the Tea Party but members have trouble falling asleep at night. ...The local coffee shop in my hometown sells lip balm and coffee soap. A friend asked me what I thought of the coffee soap. I said it wasn’t too good, but with a little more milk and sugar it would probably be tolerable. … I thought I’d try that new S&M exercise center. It’s called Fit to Be Tied. … Read more...

RANDOM THOUGHTS: SPONGE BOB

Sponge Bob Square Paints drew criticism from a study that said it disrupted the attention of young viewers. It also drew flack for the square star’s $100-a-day Krabby patty habit. … The announcement before the Continental flight took off sounded more honest than usual: "We'd like to pretend you have a lot of choice in your air travel. But we know you don't." Read more...
