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.

‘Saved By The Bell’ Cast Reunited For 30th Anniversary – And I’m So Excited

Published

on

If you think your high school experience feels like ancient history then it won’t bring you any comfort to know that Saved By The Bell debuted 30 years ago!

Back in 1989, Saved By The Bell hit the small screen and quickly became a television staple. Over the course of its four seasons, the sitcom followed Zach Morris and his unique blend of friends as they navigated the tricky waters of high school. Everyone had a favorite Bayside Tiger and the series spawned many memorable scenes…but you are a liar if you didn’t say your favorite scene was where Jessie broke down crying after coming to terms with her caffeine pill addiction while crying out the most iconic line ever, “I’m so excited…I’m so excited…I’m so…scared”

 

In any event, some of Bayside’s most memorable students reunited over the weekend to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the hit sitcom. Mark-Paul Gosselaar (Zach Morris), Tiffany Thiessen (Kelly Kapowski), Mario Lopez (A.C. Slater) and Elizabeth Berkley (Jessie Spano) all gathered together to hit us right in the nostalgia. Notably missing were Lark Voorhies (Lisa Turtle) and Dustin Diamond (Screech). Berkley wrote on her Instagram “FRIENDS FOREVER!!!” along with some sweet and fun hashtags. Lopez upped the ante and posted a video recapping the fun time the gang had as they reminisced on the days way back when. WHY WASN’T THIS TELEVISED?!? Many are speculating the reunion to be the beginnings of a reboot or revival but nothing of the sort has yet been confirmed.

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

Published

on

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!
