QT loud guy at the end of the bar update

Donald Trump
News Headline: “Trump falls to second place in national poll.”
The time may be approaching when we will want to avert our eyes.
No. Wait.
That time probably started when he announced.
No. Wait.
That time probably started decades ago.

Selfie-appraisals in the news

RR Selfies
News Headline: “People warned over rail-track selfies after eight incidents in one day.”
Add rail-track selfies to the list of problems that tend to solve themselves.

In other news. . . .

Sean Hannity
News Headline: “Sean Hannity falls for hoax on claim that U.S. is taking in 250,000 refugees.”
This comes as a surprise.
Fox News is usually meticulous in making up its stories.

QT news you can use

Pumpkins
Martha Stewart wants you to know that the equipment you will need to  carve a Halloween pumpkin includes a keyhole saw, a sabre saw, a wood gouge, a linoleum cutter, a hole cutter, a plaster scraper, a melon-ball scooper and a power drill.

Greetings and facilitations

Gun Silencer
News Headline: “GOP lawmakers want to make gun silencers cheaper, easier to buy.”
And who said the Republicans aren’t interested in solutions to the nation’s gun problem?
Now the massacres won’t make a racket.

As the Halloween Asteroid approaches. . . .

Asteroid Miss
News Headline: “Sizable asteroid will offer flyby scare on Halloween.”
Not much of a scare.
Asteroid 2015 TB145 will pass well outside the moon’s orbit.
Best we can tell.
As opposed to Asteroid  2015 UM53, which was discovered yesterday, three days after it passed between Earth and the moon.
But be reassured:
It isn’t as if asteroids are coming between Earth and the moon undiscovered every day.
That has happened only six times this year.
Best we can tell.

This just in. . . .

Ben Carson
Ben Carson regarding his younger years:
“I would go after people with rocks and bricks, and baseball bats, and hammers.”
Let’s be fair.
It can take anyone a while to perfect neurosurgery techniques.

QT 2016 vote count countdown update

ChrisChristie
News Headline:
“Chris Christie kicked off Amtrak quiet car for being too loud.”
When a candidate mistakes a quiet car for the clown car. . . .

Biding its time. . . .

Buddy the Wonder Dog
News Headline: “Dog named Trigger shoots owner during hunt.”
This is important, and think carefully:
How well do you know your dog?
How well, really?
