The Daily Word in "locker room talk," Hurricane Matthew, and the Standing Rock camp

The Daily Word

The second presidential debate of the year was last night. It was town hall-style debate, where voters were present to ask the two candidates questions. Today, the internet seems to have decided who won the debate after all: Ken Bone, the man in the red sweater.

Last week, some recordings of Trump making lewd comments about women were released, to nobody's surprise. Trump's running mate, Mike Pence, denounced these comments but said that he won't drop out of the campaign. He called getting tapped for the VP spot the "greatest honor" of his life.

Oh, and by the way -- professional athletes are pissed that Trump keeps defending/side-stepping his lewd statements by calling it "locker room talk." That's not how locker rooms work, my dude.

Fuck Columbus Day. Happy Indigenous People's Day.

The indigenous protectors camped at Sacred Stone in North Dakota protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline are now being watched and patrolled by the Morton County Sheriff's Office. The peaceful protestors have already met the brunt of North Dakota's private and state-funded security forces. If this doesn't look like exactly history repeating itself, I don't know what does.

The death toll in Haiti and the southeast US is climbing due to flooding from Hurricane Matthew. Urgent rescue efforts are underway in North Carolina, after severe flooding forced people to their rooftops.

Here's another animal first: A mouth-breathing dolphin was discovered in New Zealand. Marine biologists aren't sure how or why the little bugger is doing it, but until now it was believed to be impossible.

Daily Word in Corpse Flowers, Homeless Haircuts and Vampire Kangaroos

The Daily Word

According to Harvard professor and researcher Howard Gardner, Donald Trump is a “textbook” narcissist. That means he's self-obsessed, arrogant and overly-sensitive. Obviously, the kind of person I want to see in office.

Around 20 prehistoric animal species were discovered during a recent two-week dig in Australia. The coolest one: a fanged kangaroo that ate meat and climbed trees. Those bastards are scary enough as it is. Just think long and hard about that gutting claw they have and how powerful their legs are if you want to keep yourself up at night. Here are some rules for protecting yourself if you ever come into contact with one of these wretched beasts.

The corpse flower (Latin name Amorphophallus titanum, meaning “giant misshapen penis”)is one of the largest and rarest flowering plants in the world. It takes 10 years to go from seed to flower and gets its common name from the godawful smell it produces. There are at least five of them currently blooming, which has botanists confused.

The Daily Word in Drunk Cats, Unfunny Clowns and Little Hands

The Daily Word

My love of bad taste is legendary in these parts, which is why I've been dying to see Jerry Lewis' super secret holocaust movie, The Day the Clown Cried, wherein a German clown leads Jewish children to the gas chambers. Hiyo! Lewis gave the film to the Library of Congress under condition that it not be shown until 2024. Other than short glimpses here and there (and a live staging of the script by Patton Oswald), not many have seen this poorly planned work, but thanks to internet, 30 full minutes have surfaced. Enjoy!

Using neural stem cells, scientists have shown that an aged hippocampus will accept transplanted brain stem cells. That means age-related brain degeneration can probably be reversed. And the stem cells needed might be feasibly harvested from skin cells. This is fucking nuts!

The Daily Word in Salamanders, Man-Babies and Pseudo Polaroids

For the hipsters out there struggling to keep up with “vintage” trends at Urban Outfitters, you'll find hope in this lil' piece of machinery. Show everyone just how good you are at pretending you were born in the 60s.

No exceptions once you join the cult. Consider this a warning to everyone who values freedom of expression.

I guess nothing's impossible as long as you try hard (or long) enough. Happy Birthday, baby.

Explain to me why this needs legalizing again?

Man-baby disqualified from presidential candidacy? If only.
