Both Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke and Rafael Edward Cruz joined the federal legislature representing Texas in 2013 – Beto in the House and Cruz in the Senate. Both are now vying for the next term of Cruz’s job in the Senate and the fact that a Republican incumbent in Texas has agreed to debates show just how tight things have become.

This made me smile, unlike most of the real news from this campaign.
And while I am quoting random people off the internet, I am reminded of a post from some random guy on Twitter that went something to the effect of: “Illegal immigration will actually increase under a Trump presidency, but then Canada would send all the Americans back.”
It’s been a weird night on the Internet… I firstly came across this article saying that Ted Cruz is definitely (well maybe) the Zodiac Killer. And really, if you can’t believe Google auto-complete, then who can you??
And because I like to end all of my posts on a classy note, I want to talk about porn. Namely this bit of worthy news I happened upon – porn rots slower than other magazines. It’s good to know that even though Playboy has stopped printing nudes, their naked chicks will be available for a looong time to come – the author of this finding was able to display a 1979 copy Playboy unearthed from a landfill which was in near mint condition!
I do fear for the new Playboy format tho. Not for the lack of nudes but the monthly interview by James Franco – if anything is going to kill that magazine, this is it. His god-awful hosting of the 2011 Oscars still haunts my dreams…
The first chance we had to see the key occupants of the Republican clown car in a single forum didn’t disappoint. It was well run (not a small feat considering there were 10 people on stage), the grandstanding was minimized, we got to see some hand to hand combat and most importantly, it was informative – we got to learn more about almost all of the candidates to understand who Hillary will stomp next fall.
For me, almost everyone came off with a worse impression than what I came in with.
Started this page on my take on the Republican primary nominees… will keep it updated as time goes on, things develop and as I learn more…
