Random Bidtits (5/21/2020)

Hi all!  Some good random crap and useful resources in this.  For some of these, I’ve been meaning to send for months.  Let’s begin:

  • Who remembers the impeachment inquiry against Donny-T?  It’s been an age, I know.  But if you’re somewhat hazy on the details and want a solid summary the Wikipedia page titled “Impeachment inquiry against Donald Trump” is extremely helpful as a summary and timeline.  It even details the follies like the time Pelosi overplayed her hand and prematurely shot her wad (remember when the market didn’t respond the way she anticipated?  Ouch.).
  • THROOOOWBAAAAAAACK: who remembers Sue Johanson?  No?  How about “Talk Sex with Sue Johanson?”  That’s right, the late night show that ran from 2002 to 2008 every Sunday.  And Sue is still alive and kicking, per her Wikipedia page.
  • We use the term “flagship” quite often in the business and retail world.  You should probably know its original meaning if you don’t already.  Here ya go: “A flagship is a vessel used by the commanding officer of a group of naval ships, characteristically a flag officer entitled by custom to fly a distinguishing flag.  Used more loosely, it is the lead ship in a fleet of vessels, typically the first, largest, fastest, most heavily armed, or best known.  In common naval use, the term flagship is fundamentally a temporary designation; the flagship is wherever the admiral’s flag is being flown.  However, admirals have always needed additional facilities, including a meeting room large enough to hold all the captains of the fleet and a place for the admiral’s staff to make plans and draw up orders.  Historically, only larger ships could accommodate such requirements.  Modern flagships are designed primarily for command and control rather than for fighting, and are also known as command ships.”
  • Need a new pillow for your dog?  Worried that your gay or non-binary dog may be dipping its paw into a more heterosexual lifestyle?  Have no fear, the progressive people at Amazon are here!  Meet the Enchanted Home Pet Ultra Plush Astro Sofa Dog Bed: DogAnd for the french bulldogs who are a little too interested in the opposite sex, check out this chaise lounge: chaise loungeAmazon will have your furry friend back to familiar genitalia in no time!

That’s all the cis-gendered vitriol I can spew for today.  You have yourself a terrific Thursday and may Fido have an absolutely FAAAAAABULOUS Thursday.
