Vote Early en masse so CNN can Call the US Election BEFORE Election Night!

You can start early voting today for the US, it seems, from what some friends were posting on Facebook. That’s almost a month ahead of time!

That led me to think with that much time, what if enough people went to vote that CNN and other news stations could call the election before election night?

Seriously, this could be done!

C’mon, American neighbours! Don’t make me wait. And don’t disillusion me on my perception of your collective intelligence and common sensibility.

Actually, forget about me! Don’t make the world wait. Nor disillusion it on their perception of your collective intelligence and common sensibility!

It’s a pretty obvious choice! Why prolong the inevitable?

Mikael Granlund’s “Lacrosse” Style Scoop Hockey Goal Video

Mikael Granlund, a 19 year old hockey player from Finland drafted 9th overall last year by the Minnesota Wild, just scored what may well be the play of the year on Friday the 13th of May, 2011!

On the IIHF World Championship semi-final stage against the Russians, at full speed stealing the puck in the corner, then walking around a player, then having that player chase him behind the net, Mikael scoops up the puck and puts it up and under the crossbar. He scored “lacrosse style”, as some like to say, to give Finland a 1-0 lead. But never mind my description. Have a look for yourself because words don’t do this goal justice!

Twilight Close-up Portraits iPad Wallpapers

I absolutely LOVE looking at close-up, close-cropped portraits. Some people find them a little intense to look at. Others find it creepy, especially if the people are creepy in some ways… like Twilight vampires and werewolves, maybe?

Nah! I don’t even like Twilight, but I have to admit I do like the pictures below formatted for . The public relations folks for Twilight and New Moon did a great job at getting these portraits from the Twilight and New Moon movies. They were available in less than close-up pictures, which I have formatted to large size posters. I then close-cropped them down for the iPad wallpapers below, which, I have to admit, looked pretty darn good!

I’ll have to wait and see if Twilight fans will  use these on their iPads… or if there are many Twilight fans with iPads. Most Twilight fans are young and probably can’t afford the iPad right yet, or justify spending the money on it yet. We’ll see how many of the older ones have iPads and won’t mind being seen, possibly ridiculed, with large portraits of their favourite Twilight characters. 🙂
