Hey folks,

Listen up - it's November. Or is it Movember?! You decide...

Anyway - in the spirit of giving, why not give your spare change to a great cause? I'm using this month as an excuse to grow a 'stache and try to help raise money to support cancer and men's overall health.

So it's your decision - you can either donate and support my stache, or not donate and support cancer. :( Besides, a donation encourages me, and my wife doesn't think I need any more encouragement...

http://mobro.co/jessebelanger to donate!

Here we frickin go...

sigh 

From the person who shot the video (via: http://www.reddit.com/r/politics/comments/12q6wu/2012_voting_machine_altering_votes/c6x8sbi):

"I'm the guy who shot the video, hopefully this doesn't get burried. You guys have questions, I have answers.

My wife and I went to the voting booths this morning before work. There were 4 older ladies running the show and 3 voting booths that are similar to a science fair project in how they fold up. They had an oval VOTE logo on top center and a cartridge slot on the left that the volunteers used to start your ballot.

I initially selected Obama but Romney was highlighted. I assumed it was being picky so I deselected Romney and tried Obama again, this time more carefully, and still got Romney. Being a software developer, I immediately went into troubleshoot mode. I first thought the calibration was off and tried selecting Jill Stein to actually highlight Obama. Nope. Jill Stein was selected just fine. Next I deselected her and started at the top of Romney's name and started tapping very closely together to find the 'active areas'. From the top of Romney's button down to the bottom of the black checkbox beside Obama's name was all active for Romney. From the bottom of that same checkbox to the bottom of the Obama button (basically a small white sliver) is what let me choose Obama. Stein's button was fine. All other buttons worked fine.

I asked the voters on either side of me if they had any problems and they reported they did not. I then called over a volunteer to have a look at it. She him hawed for a bit then calmly said "It's nothing to worry about, everything will be OK." and went back to what she was doing. I then recorded this video.

EDIT: There is a lot of speculation that the footage is edited. I'm not a video guy, but if it's possible to prove whether a video has been altered or not, I will GLADLY provide the raw footage to anyone who is willing to do so. The jumping frames are a result of the shitty camera app on my Android phone, nothing more."

tl;dr Not a calibration issue, which is what I thought it was at first. This is troubling.

What does NASA mean to humanity, at this moment in time? Why should we risk blood and treasure to explore the universe, to satiate our curiosity? It is because we must. In the end, our very survival depends on it. 

Read more on why NASA is an important stage of human evolution at http://www.penny4nasa.org/2013/01/02/the-destiny-of-a-species/

Join us and fight for NASA. Write Congress. Donate to Penny4NASA. Spread the word online. Together we will make 2013 a year of science and exploration.

9 min video about Tanishq Abraham, a 9 year old college student guest on CNN, ABC, MSNBC who wants to cure diseases & design a rocket travelling faster than the speed of ☼light.  He's the youngest speaker at NASA ever, youngest to discover a Supernova (zooniverse.org) & a mensa.org member from age 4 (IQ>150).   See him talk for 2 min on particle physics: 9-Yr-Old Prodigy Explains "God Particle".  He's Vice President of his College Astronomy Club as you can see from his talk on their ☻anti-matter experiment:  Tanishq Abraham, 9 yr old prodigy- VP of American River College Astronomy Club at Club Day 9-20-2012.  He is reminding me of the MIT teen who wants to cure aging thru her ♥Immortal IP VC firm:  Laura Deming - 20U20 Episode 1.   With such role models, the future looks amazing. :)

Glad your so optimistic. With the current fiscal cliff, the economy and the state of affairs the world is in... I'm not so sure about the future.
