'TIME' POSTS WORKOUT PHOTOS OF PAUL RYAN: Earlier in the day ahead of Rep. Paul Ryan's vice presidential debate last night (October 11th) against Vice President Joe Biden -- the biggest day of the campaign for both candidates -- Time magazine posted a series of workout photos online of the Republican VP nominee. The photos -- some of which are a bit goofy looking -- show Ryan, who's a fitness buff, wearing shorts and a gray T-shirt with a backwards red baseball cap as he pumps iron and smiles. The images were outtakes from a series of photos Time took last year when Ryan, then best known as the top GOP budget hawk in the House, was a runner-up for the magazine's Person of the Year honors. Time wrote, "It was Ryan's fitness regime (and Herculean strength on all things fiscal) that inspired th workout-themed sitting."
THIS IS SO STUPID ITS FUNNY!
You’re probably thinking there’s absolutely no reason to revisit last week’s dreary Presidential debate, but you’d be wrong. The folks at Bad Lip Reading have given us their unique take on the proceedings and the results are just as hilarious and nonsensical as ever.
While President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney discuss cow people, the loss of puppets and taking a bath in eggs, moderator Jim Lehrer offers critiques of their singing voices, encourages them to gaze deeply into each other’s eyes and leads them in a meditative Buddhist chant.
But nothing beats Lehrer’s absolutely nutty song at the end about a pimento shower, machetes and laughing anchovies.

'BAGEL HEAD' TREND ON THE RISE IN JAPAN: A form of temporary body art called a "Bagel Head" is becoming popular in Japan. To get the look, saline is injected into the forehead until it swells into a circle. Then someone has to press it in the center to create the "hole" of the bagel. The process takes two hours but lasts up to 24 hours until the body absorbs the saline. (The Sun)
If you can stomach it, check out this video of some people get their bagel heads done:

No less than four albums from Metallica made the Top 10 list of "The Greatest Heavy Metal Albums Of All Time," as voted by the online readers of Rolling Stone magazine. The band's classic 1986 effort Master Of Puppets topped the survey, followed by Black Sabbath's 1970 landmark Paranoid at Number Two. In fact, the only band in the Top Five besides Metallica and Sabbath was Iron Maiden, who landed at Number Four with 1982's The Number Of The Beast.
