There were frustrating interruptions, though not as many as in the first debate. There were dodged questions, animated facial expressions and one candidate running particularly roughshod over the moderator.

And yes, there was a fly on top of Vice President Mike Pence’s head.

That was what excited social media during the sole vice-presidential debate, one in which the tone was markedly more subdued compared with last week’s presidential debate but in which the dynamics remained largely the same: The Republican incumbent showed little regard for the agreed-upon rules, and the Democratic challenger mostly complied.

And, again, a fly landed on Mr. Pence’s head.

So, for posterity, here is how the internet — or how we casually refer to that insular, blue-check-verified version of the proverbial diner in a steel town — reacted to the debate.

About an hour into the debate, a fly suddenly appeared on Mr. Pence’s

WASHINGTON (AP) — The vice presidential debate featured plexiglass barriers to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. They were no match for the night’s most talked-about intruder — a fly that briefly buzzed around the stage before landing and staying on Mike Pence’s head.

But as the insect took up residence on Pence’s white hair, the social media firestorm was immediate — and intense. It easily created more, well, buzz than nearly anything else that occurred.

“That’s not on your TV. It’s on his head,” tweeted MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow. “The fly knows,” tweeted author Stephen King. Others joked about the creature perhaps getting

  • A test pilot in Russia has flown the country’s new Su-57 fighter jet without its protective canopy.
  • Footage of the test appears briefly in a video uploaded by Russia’s Ministry of Defense to YouTube.
  • The test was likely to ensure there were no issues in case the canopy accidentally … went away.

    Russia’s Ministry of Defense has dropped a new video that includes some very unusual flying. In the video, a pilot is flying Russia’s long-in-the-works Sukhoi Su-57 fighter jet, known to NATO as the “Felon,” without the usual plexiglass cockpit canopy that protects him from the elements. The flight is likely taking place to ensure there are no unexpected issues flying the plane if the canopy were to suddenly come off.

    You love badass planes. So do we. Let’s nerd out over them together.

    Here’s the video. The missing canopy shot is at the 1:10 mark, but the

    Thought I would never say this. But I am going to blurt it out: It’s time to buy the stock of Boeing (BA) .

    I know, that seems like taking your life in your hands. But I have been waiting for the head of the Federal Aviation Administration to fly on the 737 MAX and Wednesday he did, and the test looks like a good one. That might set in a chain reaction to get this jet sold.

    Goldman Sachs recently put out an excellent piece talking about how the MAX recertification “could be a key catalyst.” It thinks that this test and others from Canada and Europe, which I think will fall in line, are going to be milestones that could lead to a year-end recertification.

    There is, indeed, broad skepticism about everything I just said. People want to wait and see. I don’t think you can do that

    Roger Moore, Sean Connery, Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig – they all have used spy cameras at one point of the movie or another. Have you ever watched a James Bond movie and thought to yourself that it would be so cool to have a gadget that does amazing stuff? Well, this is your chance to own a spy camera. For those of you who do not know what a spy camera is, it can defined as any camera which can be used for taking pictures or video of a scene or a person without their knowledge. If you have watched “Candid Camera”, you would know that people tend to be amusing when they are not aware that a camera is capturing their moves. History has it that the Second World War was the first time when people used spy devices to wander into enemy territory and take pictures of … Read More
