How dare you not think to ask Lindsay Lohan how she was holding up during the debate?
If you thought presidential candidates Barack Obama and Mitt Romney were the only ones allowed to be nervous for the final debate, you are quite inconsiderate. The Liz and Dick star, who recently voiced support for the GOP contender, was a total wreck during the hour and a half event. Here’s what she tweeted about the affair:
Hear that, Romney and Obama? You weren’t the only ones freaking out during the debate. Lohan had a ton to be worried about, so don’t think for a second that you have a right to feel overwhelmed about the election.

Of course, we should all respect and be careful around the railroad tracks. Ironically, U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal didn’t heed his own advice as he stood just inches from the tracks during his own rail safety presentation as can be seen in this KHON2 News video.
Just as the speaker said, “Safety as you know is paramount,” a train whizzed by just inches from hitting the Senator himself!
That’s embarrassing and could have ended much worse!
The video has gone viral with over 650,000 hits!

The Carbon Tax lives!… till next week.
1. The Senate has just refused the Government’s wish to axe the Carbon Tax. Here is kind of why.

As you can see it’s a shambles…
2. Mr Palmer’s “demands” were reportedly not met… and the PUP’s three senators joined with Motoring Enthusiast Ricky Muir, sinking the vote 37 – 35.

Barack Obama called NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory Monday morning to offer phoned in high-fives for the successful landing of the Mars Curiosity rover. After some initial chit-chat and congratulations, the president brought up the space agency’s most internet famous team member, mohawked flight director Bobak Ferdowsi.
Watch the short clip for Obama’s complete comment on NASA’s style evolution, but here’s a snippet of the transcription: “I, in the past, thought about getting a mohawk myself. My team keeps on discouraging me and now that he’s received marriage proposals and thousands of new Twitter followers, I think that I’m going to go back to my team and see if it makes sense.”
Twitter user @Darth decided to help Obama make a more informed decision about his possible mohawked future with a little Photoshop action.
So, Mr. President, to ‘hawk or not to ‘hawk?

There’s a reason Comcast repeatedly has been voted one the worst companies in America. (Take that, Monsanto!) So, even though this clearly isn’t from Comcast, it’s way more truthful than anything they would ever release.
Also, there’s some very NSFW language, and I want you to be prepared for that.
Did you know Comcast is trying to become even bigger and more powerful by merging with Time Warner Cable? If the idea of a super-mega Comcast gives you the heebie-jeebies, then you should head here and make a comment by Aug. 26, 2014!

The Senate failed at their jobs today, refusing to give an up or down vote to background check legislation that specifically banned a gun registry while allowing for comprehensive checks.
“90% of Americans support universal background checks. Think about that. How often do 90% of Americans agree on anything?” —President Obama.
Here’s the full speech, if you’ve got time for the whole thing:
Every single senator should probably know what they’ve done. So I’d share this.
