Grey areas

Eeeek. Exec producers Jesse Alexander and Jeph Loeb axed from Heroes. I don't think that can be good, bloody meddling studio...

Overweight women have more sex. Hah.

NSFW VID: Close-up of female orgasm. I thought it was really interesting, cos, y'know, I haven't seen one close up...

theferrett has an essay on arguing with people when you think in shades of grey and they think in black and white. It's based on an argument about universal health care, but you get these people all over the place.

My investigating RPG team (remember the pinboard?) are actually getting somewhere! Hurrah! At this rate we might solve the thing by Christmas. And some people are definitely gonna BURN. Heresy!!!

I really want to watch the US election results. Anyone know what time they're likely to start coming in, UK time? I'm working from 8am on Wednesday and we always have News24 on in the office, so I might just be able to bag a seat near enough to read the subtitles and then stare at that all day...

Polling closes at 7 or 8pm in most states, then if add 6 hours, that puts it at 1:00 am your time for the East Coast results to start rolling in, I believe. But final results won't be in for about another 4 hours after that if it's as close as I think it's going to be.

But it also may be later to get any meaningful results since there will be more people voting than normal and as long as they get in line to vote before the polls close, they're allowed to vote, so even if their polling place closes at 7, it may be 10 or 11pm before they actually get to cast it. And officials are not supposed to give out numbers until everyone who is allowed to has voted at that location.

One way or another, it'll be an interesting night! And I can not even tell you how glad I will be to see Wednesday roll around. I live in a "battleground state" and am SO sick of the ads. UGH!

Hmm, cool. So I really do want to be able to stay up all night. (Except it's 8am and I'm exhausted already, I hate early starts...)

I'd go to sleep. I seem to remember them avoiding, a little, reporting while the polls were still open. So nothing until tomorrow, I think.

Yeah, if it's anything like here the proper results won't start coming in till 3 or 4am US time, which if I'm in work at 8 UK time, works out quite well! I'm not going to be able to take tomorrow off, so just as well...
