DISTURBING VIDEO: Voting Machine Malfunction Caught On Tape?!?

If this video is legit, then it’s disturbing no matter who you want to win. A Pennsylvania voter has uploaded a clip of himself in the voting machine, trying to click the ‘Obama’ button, but shows the Romney box being checked. Let the legal chaos begin.

If this video is legit, then it’s disturbing no matter who you want to win. A Pennsylvania voter has uploaded a clip of himself in the voting machine, trying to click the ‘Obama’ button, but shows the Romney box being checked. Let the legal chaos begin.

WATCH THE VIDEO BELOW! 

The uploader of the video created a youtube account called CENTRALPAVOTE, and explains what happened in his own words: (it is not clear where in Central Pennsylvania this incident allegedly took place.)

I initially selected Obama but Romney was highlighted. I assumed it was being picky so I deselected Romney and tried Obama again, this time more carefully, and still got Romney. 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 voting machine is manufactured by a company called iVotronic. Where this Pennsylvania voting machine irregularity takes place has yet to be determined.

According to DigitalJournal:  Gawker interviewed o Joseph Lorenzo Hall, Senior Staff Technologist at the Center for Democracy & Technology, about the video. Hall said, “It’s a concern but not because of fraud… that’s an obviously miscalibrated iVotronic (ES&S) voting machine… we would recommend that poll workers would recalibrate the machine and everything would be fine. Also, with some models of voting system if you place a thumb on accident while resting on the machine it can “bias” the calibration of the touchscreen up towards the errant thumb. That could be happening to, if it’s only for this one voter.”
This is not the only state with reports of machines that aren’t working properly. Other reports are coming in from Ohio, (perhaps the most crucial battleground state) Wisconsin and Indiana.

Dr. Phil Shaved Off His Mustache And Suddenly I Don’t Phil So Good

Published

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it…or shave it in this case.

Talk show host Dr. Phil is known for three things: Giving advice. A strong southern drawl. And an mustache so thick, it could have a milkshake named after it. I mean just take a look at that furried upper lip in all of it’s glory!

For as long as Dr. Phil has been on television he has that mustache, so you could imagine the worldwide hysteria that ensued when he posted a video with his stache slathered in shaving cream while holding a razor dangerously close to it. I mean…what could have inspired this sudden fit of rash behavior?!

He wouldn’t really go through with it though right? I mean no one likes change…right? Wrong! Here’s what the tv host looks like without his stache…and let’s just say, it is most certainly not what the doctor ordered!

After sharing his most traumatizing content since the “Cash Me Outside” girl, Dr. Phil posted this video insuring that the entire stunt was actually just an April Fool’s joke.

 

I’m definitely going to need some mood elevators to recover from this one! I love a makeover as much as the next guy, but some things are better left alone!

Is Miley Cyrus Bringing ‘Hannah Montana’ Back?!

Published

on

Miley Cyrus sure has been posting a lot about Hannah Montana lately….

It’s been 8 years since Miley Cyrus has given us the best of both worlds by slapping on that blond wig and becoming the tween-dream, Hannah Montana, so is she ready for a comeback? Last night Miley posted a marathon of tweets that have fans speculating a triumphant return of the Disney diva. Let’s examine, it started with this tweet wishing Lady Gaga a happy birthday:

Then this proclamation that Miley has decided to be Hannah forever!

An obvious throwback to Hannah’s biggest hit was necessary.

Well, idk if Disney would like to hear Hannah’s new definition of “Best Of Both Worlds”…

But she’s punk now so it’s par for the course I guess?

Maybe this is all an elaborate plan to release an album with Migos?

Well there’s no way of anticipating what to expect next, this is Miley after all. In the meantime, fans will just have to remain hopeful that there’s more Hannah Montana in the future!
