Out in the real world news is happening and here are the highlights.
Vogue declares cleavage over
The world’s most prestigious fashion publication, Vogue, just declared cleavage over – no, Anna Wintour is not encouraging double mastectomy’s, but rather announcing that showing off them mammalian protuberances is no longer fashionable. This new development is apparently down to the rise of creepy, perverted comments online that have pushed women into covering up – because nobody likes having a mouth breather drool all over them. – The Independent
Chicago Cubs win first World Series in 108 years
One of the longest cases of blue (base)balls is finally over, and the Chicago Cubs have finally won the World Series for the second time in their history, ending a 108-year wait since their last and 109 since their first. The incredibly tight game stretched to 10 innings but the Cubs finally overcame the Cleveland Indians by a 8-7 scoreline. The sad thing is that by the time they win their next title, nobody alive today will be there to see it, if this century-plus wait is anything to go by. – Chicago Tribune
Jay Z hosts ‘Get Out the Vote’ show for Clinton
Like all sane people, Jay Z is voting for Hillary Clinton on election day and he did his part to sway the electorate her way with a “Get Out the Vote” concert in Cleveland, Ohio – a crucial swing state. He even Tweeted (something he rarely does) a quote by Jewish writer and holocaust survivor, Elie Wiesel, on how neutrality empowers tyranny, adding “let’s make history (again)” – a reference to Obama’s historic win in 2008. – Billboard
UK High Court to decide Brexit vote
Ever since Britain voted to Brexit the European Union back in June, the many millions who voted to remain have been doing their very best to stop this utter catastrophe from coming to pass, but their only real hope will be decided today by the UK High Court. Basically, the country’s top judges are going to decide whether or not it’s unconstitutional for the Prime Minister to activate Article 50 (the fine print that begins the two-year withdrawal process for an EU member state) without putting it before a parliamentary vote. Considering that the overwhelming majority of politicians and people with an education and professional jobs want to stay, a ruling in their favor will keep Britain in, but have deep implications for the divided country. – The Guardian
