Debates and Haunted Book Nooks, What I Learned Today – Thursday, October 22

I’ve been a little busy with work projects but mostly have just been tuning out news for the last week or two. And it has been AMAZING. Now that we have under 2 weeks before all hell breaks loose in early November, I guess it’s time to start wading into the cesspool though.

I will be watching the debate tonight, so perhaps I’m not wading so much into the cesspool than diving in headfirst.  That’s if there is a debate. Trump has been whining about it all week and now that they have decided to cut the microphones for those who won’t stfu when it’s not their time to speak, I can see Trump doing something stupid like walking off, or going over and grabbing Joe’s microphone.  His base would love that.


Rudy Giuliani, who runs a security consulting firm, got caught on film with his hands down his pants in Borat’s new movie coming out tomorrow on Amazon Prime. Rudy says he was just tucking his shirt into his pants. And in his defense, who doesn’t thrust his shirt deep into one’s pants while lying down on a bed with a young woman hovering over you?

So Rudy likes tucking his shirt under his scrotum I guess?


Oh, America….


Oh, Amerikkka…


This is my favorite monologue of all time and this is wonderful!


The making of the Haunted Mansion Book Nook.  I can watch these videos all day.


 

RIP Amazing Randi

Oh no 🙁

James Randi, a magician and illusionist known as “The Amazing Randi” as well as a scientific investigator who debunked paranormal and occult phenomena through his organization the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry, has died. He was 92.

The James Randi Foundation announced his passing in a tweet, saying he died of “age-related causes” on Tuesday.

Randi was remembered on Wednesday by magician Penn Jillette in a pair of tweets, which you can see below, as an “inspiration, mentor and dear friend.”

Trump says if Biden’s elected, “he’ll listen to the scientists”

I’m trying to stay away from the news as much as possible because it’s such a cesspool, especially given that the election is about 2 weeks away. But my god, what a headline.

Well, we certainly wouldn’t want to listen to anybody who may have some kind of snotty expert information and could help solve a problem would we?

 

Looks Like I Didn’t Miss Much From My News Embargo

Ok, I admit, I’m kinda curious about the Mr. Rogers talking point.

In other news, I filled out my ballot, put it in the local OFFICIAL ballot drop box at city hall, and it has been accepted according to the website. And yes, of course I voted for Biden.  Biden was not my first choice during the primary, nor my second or third, but compared to a pathological lying narcissist who was impeached in his first term, has said that white supremacists were very fine people, who has done everything in his power to make this pandemic far worse than it could have been by disregarding all of the science, who has fucked up everything possible, placed people in power not from their experience but their loyalty to himself, and makes every single thing about himself no matter how small of a slight, well, then Biden looks pretty damn good. Let’s just say, Biden, the only real competitor in this race, outclasses Trump in every single way possible and I’m pleased with my vote.
