Out in the real world news is happening and here are the highlights.
Women prefer bigger-than average penises
Despite consistently being lied to that size doesn't matter, that it's how you use it, collective male suspicions have been confirmed: women prefer bigger-than-average penises, so says a joint study between researchers at the Universities of California and New Mexico.
Apparently, they have larger expectations from one-night stands than long-term partners, with the women surveyed saying that they prefer 6.4" in length and 5.0" in girth from a one-night stand and 6.3" in length and 4.8" in girth from a stable partner.
How do fractions of an inch make a difference, seriously? For those of you reaching for measuring instruments to measure your instrument, the average penis is 5.2" in length and 4.6" in girth. – The Guardian
Republican elector says he will not back Trump
Although the U.S. election has already been decided, Trump hasn't actually been confirmed as the winner yet. Because of the way that American politics works, he may have won the electoral college vote (but lost the popular vote by over two million) but the electoral colleges need to actually cast their votes for him this month.
Writing in the New York Times, a Republican elector by the name of Christopher Suprun, whose job is to actually elect Trump alongside another 537 individuals in the same role who are supposed to cast their votes according to how their individual electoral colleges voted, says that he will break ranks because he doesn't believe that Trump is qualified for the job. – New York Times
Broken voting machines throws Michigan recount into chaos
Trump won Michigan, a long-time Democratic stronghold, by a mere 10,704 votes, the slimmest of margins – less than a single percentage point– which has stirred up demands for a recount. But problems have emerged from busted old voting machines that potentially double-counted votes after seemingly failing to count them the first time.
Apparently 87 scanners in Detroit broke on election day, and there are doubts that they could even be recounted by hand, throwing the whole result into disarray. You expect this in tin pot banana republics, but not America. – Detroit News

Adriana Lima defends Kendall Jenner from haters
Haters from across the modeling world have criticized Kendall Jenner in the past, claiming that she didn't have to work her way to modeling glory but rather she inherited it on the basis of being a Kardashian.
Legendary Victoria's Secret model, Adriana Lima, has stepped into defend her, telling the world that she's pleasant and sweet and nice to work with.
All in all it sounds like two bald men fighting over a comb: how much actual work is involved in modeling? And, fundamentally, success in the modeling world comes down to how successful you were in the genetic lottery. If you haven't got a certain look, then soz bbz, you can't be a model and there's nothing you can do to circumvent that. – Inquisitr
