Lead Story: Battle Over The Ballots

The Texas Supreme Court has denied Republican efforts to throw out 127,000 ballots. Republican groups had been asking the courts to nullify votes in Harris County because the voters participated in drive-thru voting instead of walking themselves into a building.

The all-Republican court denied the request without an opinion. It was a flat no. However, the group is taking this case to a federal judge later today, trying to disenfranchise a large portion of voters in the home stretch of the election.

Speaking of voter suppression, police pepper-sprayed people at a march to the polls on Saturday, reportedly because they would not move out of the road. It was an event organized to protest police brutality and empower participants by casting their votes. Police say they sprayed pepper spray at the ground but at least one video shows a direct hit to the face.

Don’t Zoom In

If someone tries to extort you for money because they claim to have caught you naked on Zoom, first ask yourself: Was I naked on Zoom? If the answer is no, move on with your day. If the answer is yes, check if the email could be a scam because apparently, people are doing this.

Scammers are sending emails telling people that they’ve been caught nude down on Zoom and they had better pay up if they want the footage destroyed. They are asking for $2,000 in bitcoin.

So don’t fall for this nonsense. And even better, keep fully clothed when you’re online. 

News By The Numbers

$2.5 million. That is how much a private collection of antique cars sold for in Kansas. The owner, Bog Regehr, was the inventor of the bounce house. He died last year.

27. That is how many missing children US Marshals say were rescued after a 5-day sting in Virginia called Operation Save Our Children.

$100,000. That is how much a woman in Florida made scamming Amazon with pre-paid return labels. She re-used pre-paid return labels for several products but requested the returns separately, making it seem like she paid for the return shipments herself. She was arrested and charged with grand theft.

1 in 4. That is how many people who voted early in this year’s Presidential election are first-time voters

The Patron Saint of The Internet

A cooler contingency of Catholics is campaigning for Carlo Acutis to become the Patron Saint of the Internet. Acutis died of leukemia in 2007 and the campaign to earn him sainthood began as soon as the 5-year obligatory wait was up. 

To achieve sainthood, one must have performed verified miracles. Acutis is said to have performed at least one by healing a boy in Brazil.

By why the saint of the Internet? He was known to have been web-savvy and enjoyed video games.

If there can be a Patron Saint of accountants (St. Matthew), why not a Patron Saint of the Internet? God knows the Internet could use some sanctification!

Why Couldn’t The Chicken Cross The Pond?

Britain has said that it will not lower its standards to import American meat and put a hard-line ban on imported chlorinated chicken and hormone-fed beef.

The US had asked the UK to lower its animal welfare standards so that US farmers could sell meat there, or else risk poor trade relations. The UK decided that it just can’t. Chlorinated chicken and hormone-fed beef have been banned in the UK since 1997 but the country is just now deciding once and for all that this must apply to American imports too.

Maybe rather than asking other countries to lower health standards for food, the US should raise its standards instead? Just a thought.

You know what is cool again these days? Tie-dye! The 70s hippy pattern has come back in fashion because, well, people are bored and desperate for home crafts. 

According to Google, searches for tie-dye crafts have gone up 3,400% this year. Tie-dye craft suppliers say that they can’t keep up with demand. The cheerier the color, the faster it sells out. Makes sense. We’re all looking for an emotional pick-me-up and a bit of nostalgia. Imaginary friends and pet rocks also fit this bill.
