A couple people checked my blog last night waiting for some re-tweets. I don’t have much really.
Joe Biden called Paul Ryan a liar in several euphemisms. And that’s exactly what everyone was saying he should do and has done. Rally the base, yadda yadda.
Paul Ryan looked like he wanted to cry. I’ve never seen a grown man cry during a debate.
Here is a hypnotic Joe Biden debate .gif from Tumblr. HypnoBiden.

I’m bisexual. I’ve also used the term “heteroflexible,” but I think that totally falls under bisexual. Representing the B in LGBT.
Some people criticize the authenticity of my bisexuality because all of my whole 4 relationships have been with men. But that’s simply because there are statistically more men that like women than women that like women. Also, most of those men have been soft and pretty.
This is picture of me rolling around the floor with a girl.
A couple of decades ago this was weird, but now social norms say this is hot.
Happy National Coming Out Day

According to my friend, my First World Problem made it onto the front page of reddit briefly.
This was the post:

I have a couple other links and posts that have around 75 net upvotes. But this was my most popular uvpoted post ever.
Stay classy reddit, stay classy.

I got this super depressing e-mail from Louis CK.
Here’s an excerpt:
Tig is a friend of mine and she is very funny. I love her voice on stage. One night I was performing at a club in LA called Largo. Tig was there. She was about to go on stage. I hadn’t seen Tig in about a year and I said how are you? She replied “well I found out today that I have cancer in both breasts and that it has likely spread to my lymph nodes. My doctor says it looks real bad. “. She wasn’t kidding. I said “uh. Jesus. Tig. Well. Do you… Have your family… Helping?”. She said “well my mom was with me but a few weeks ago she fell down, hit her head and she died”. She still wasn’t kidding…
A few days later, I wrote Tig and asked her if I could release this set on my site. I wanted people to hear what I saw. What we all saw that night. She agreed. The show is on sale for the same 5 dollars I charge for my stuff. I’m only keeping 1. She gets the other 4. Tig has decided to give some of that to cancer research.
Buy the audio set for $5 here:
I never heard of her before but she actually is really funny. And you can fight cancer at the same time.

September 2012 unemployment according to the BLS: 7.8%
Nate Silver comments:
The jobs numbers are certainly not enough to change the basic story of a slow economic recovery, and it will take many years for the economy to get back to full employment.
However, the jobs numbers are one of the more hopeful signs for the economy on balance. An average of 146,000 jobs have been created per month over the past year, or closer to 157,000 with the government’s anticipated benchmark revisions accounted for.
Those aren’t great numbers by any means, and would translate to an annualized growth rate of 1.4 percent. But over the past 25 years, payroll jobs have grown at an annualized rate of 1.1 percent, or the equivalent of about 125,000 jobs added per month given today’s population. By this measure, it’s been a fairly average economic year, although certainly not enough to make up for the productivity that was lost from the economy in 2008 and 2009.

Presidential Bro Hug
The Obion: Biden Implores Obama To ‘Rub One Out’ Before Debate
‘Don’t Want Pussy On The Mind Out There,’ Reports Vice President
Mitt Romney invokes a story involving a baby.
Lizz Winstead @lizzwinstead
Romney bored that unemployed person to death. #MockTheVote #Debates
Obama talks about specific tax cut numbers and the moderator sounds old and confused.
Mitt Romney: “I like coal.”
Me too, as long as I’m not getting trapped in a Chilean mine, mining it.
My Internet stream keeps buffering and I don’t care, because everyone is so boring.
Boring point-in-case, Obama just talked about “math.”
Good thing they keep talking about math. Nothing gets America fired up more than math. #debates
“I like Big Bird.”
This debate reminds me of…
Matt Yglesias @mattyglesias
I think Obama should have practiced some zingers.
Andrew Sullivan @sullydish
First unforced Romney error: “I may need a new accountant.”http://thebea.st/RdXvE9
This campaign to re-elect Bill Clinton is going really well.#debates
I think Obama’s boring is rubbing off on Romney. R-Money just mentioned “leverage limits.”
What if Jim Lehrer had a heart attack right now? His resuscitation could be funded by viewers like you!
Newsflash! Nobody has actually read Dodd-Frank.
Lizz Winstead @lizzwinstead
Dodd Frank: Was that the girl in the attic? #MockTheVote #Debates
Wil Wheaton @wilw
Okay, so I think this show needs a whacky neighbor to really spice things up. Maybe a talking baby, or a dog. OMG MAKE THIS FAMILY GUY!
Candice Hall @sexmysobriquet
@wilw Pot-smoking Koala? It could be American Dad.
Obama should just curl up in the fetal position and scream health care statistics for the rest of the debate.
Romney says he didn’t raise taxes to pay for Romneycare. That’s because it was subsidized heavily by the federal gov’t
Brooklyn Bitch @_BrooklynBitch
When can we talk about vaginas and anal sex? #debates #priorities
Man, I wish Big Bird was moderating this debate. Big Bird or a corpse would be doing a better job at creating structure than this guy.
Silent Jim Lehrer @SilentJimLehrer
There’s bars out there serving drinks called “zingers” right now, right?
Well, my dream of Obama screaming, “You tied your dog to a car!” have been crushed.
Jesus tap dancing Christ! I’d rather hear about bitches, zombies, the apocalypse, sandwiches or anal before any more political tweets. Fuck!
North Koreans should be grateful tonight that Dad banned television.#debate
Good night and good luck.
