Egyptians appear set to approve the country’s new constitution by a wide margin today via a nationwide referendum. The Muslim Brotherhood, which has backed President Mohamed Morsi and the proposed constitution, is reporting on the vote via its Twitter feed.

UPDATE: results from 3329/6376 Polling Stations counted nationwide:YES 60.6%NO 39.4%

Those numbers seem to match those reported by Egyptian media. Much of the no vote seems to be coming from Egypt’s second-largest city, Alexandria, where violent clashes are reported to have left at least 19 injured.

Shout out to Alexandrians for being the most awesome people in Egypt with a majority of the “no” vote.

Alexandria > Egypt. Also when is Alexandria going to declare its independence from Egypt?

Alexandria is Rome, but Egypt is definitely not Italy.

Some media outlets, including Reuters and the Jerusalem Post, are reporting that the office of the Wafd opposition party was attacked with petrol bombs and birdshot late in the day.

Can we confirm burning of Wafd HQ and is there any violence at Sabahi HQ? #egypt

Update: it seems it was a failed attempt to set the Wafd building on Fire, just some damage via @cliffcheney#Egypt

As CBS reports, “The draft would empower Islamists to carry out the most widespread and strictest implementation of Islamic law that modern Egypt has seen.” We can’t confirm the text on this sign, but it’s being retweeted quite a bit.

@nadaskandar Did you personally see this and take this picture? Is it a tactic to get people to say no or is it for real?

Jim Gaffigan’s 2004 standup special “Beyond the Pale” contains some hilarious jokes on the well-traveled subject of fast food and the devastating lack of health and nutrition in America. To really drive the point home, he invented a fictional and absurdly unhealthy “doughnut ham hamburger.” Nine years later, Gaffigan’s joke became reality. If this isn’t a wake-up call for the American food industry to make a big ol’ cultural U-turn in the name of health, I don’t know what is.

You know those hard water deposits that are totally stubborn to get rid of?

They show up in bathrooms and around your kitchen sink. These build-ups are so annoying as scrubbing seems to do very little, and they are extremely unsightly that you really need to get rid of them as quickly as possible. Thankfully someone has discovered a foolproof way to get rid of this ugly stain buildup once and for all. And its quite easy to do. It actually doesnt have to do so much with scrubbing as it does with soaking. Basically you want to leave a vinegar-soaked towel on the hard water deposit areas. The vinegar works wonders as it breaks down the build-up. You just need about an hour worth of soak time. Then you wipe away and it actually comes off with relative ease! So forget all about going out and spending money on expensive cleaning agents, definitely give this a try first. Your kitchen and bathroom will take on a whole new look and shine when applying this vinegar soaking/scrubbing technique! Check out the video to learn exactly how to do it.

Share this cool trick with all your friends and family!
