Youtube user Centralpavote uploaded this video of an electronic voting machine checking the box for Mitt Romney when he tries to vote for Barack Obama. He wrote in the video's description:

"Being a software developer, I immediately went into troubleshoot mode. I first thought the calibration was off and tried selecting Jill Stein to actually highlight Obama. Nope. Jill Stein was selected just fine. Next I deselected her and started at the top of Romney's name and started tapping very closely together to find the 'active areas'. From the top of Romney's button down to the bottom of the black checkbox beside Obama's name was all active for Romney. From the bottom of that same checkbox to the bottom of the Obama button (basically a small white sliver) is what let me choose Obama. Stein's button was fine. All other buttons worked fine."

The machine has been taken off line.

Last Friday, Wisconsin news anchor Jennifer Livingston received an email from a viewer attacking her weight.

This morning, she responded to him on the air:

To the person who wrote me that letter — do you think I don't know that? That your cruel words are pointing out something that I don't see?...

Livingston went on to point out that October is National Bullying Prevention Month, and that she hopes the incident will raise awareness of bullying behavior, which is "passed down from people like the man who wrote me that email."

If you are at home and talking about the fat news lady, guess what? Your children are probably going to go to school and call someone fat.

Impressive.

But seriously, I've never trusted those sandwiches. They say the most horrible things to me before I eat them.

Malaysia's Education Ministry has published a list of incredibly stereotypical "symptoms" for parents to tell if their kids might be gay. Malaysia doesn't exactly have a great record for LGBT rights, and one activist there is now calling the Ministry of Education "officially a bully."
