Is it November Yet?


Favorite new tumblr: The Worst Things for Sale.  It's incredible not only that these products exist but also that people actually buy them.  Like these Puppylocks.  Really?  (TWTFS)

Republicans in Congress killed a bill that would help unemployed veterans receive job training.  The strange thing is, many of them helped to write the bill in the first place.  So why did they kill it?  Speculators believe they wanted to prevent Obama from scoring another victory.  That's right - it's more important to some Republicans to see Obama lose than it is to provide help to those who have served our country.  I just can't with these political games anymore, you guys.  Is it Election Day yet? (NBC News)

Despite that bad news, there was something to celebrate yesterday - September 20th marked the one year anniversary of the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell."  While there's still a ways to go until all people considered equal in our country, this was still a big step for equality.  (HRC

One sharp, precocious 12 year old, with some assistance from his mother, wrote a letter to Mitt Romney to discuss his desire to repeal "Obama Care."  (Addicting Info

Oh, this is rich:  the woman who voluntarily "restored" the Fresco of Jesus now wants to be paid for destroying the painting her work.  (NPR)

There's been a chill in the air, which means it's the perfect time to break out the slow cooker.  Here's a collection of 10 delicious recipes to try, from breakfast to dessert!  (YouBeauty)

Here's the weirdest thing I read today: Ohio woman discovers that her husband was also her father.  The more I think about it, the more questions I have.  (

It's amazing that these "before they were stars" articles can still dredge up "new" clips of actors before they hit the big time.  I mean, you'd think eventually they'd run out of material that hasn't already been shown.  But I don't remember Joe Manganiello from "Spider-Man" at ALL.  He looks positively scrawny in the clip shown here, at least by his current standards.  (ScreenCrush)

Now this is an interesting casting choice.  Do you think Daniel Radcliffe could pass for a young Jon Hamm?  (MTV)

The 2012 Emmy Awards will air this Sunday on ABC.  Time to make your predictions!  (Vulture)

I dig this groovy little tune from Why? called "Sod in the Seed."  I don't dig some of the crazy hipster fashion in the video, but I love the dancing.
