Sugar Daddies Really Love Bernie SandersBy Staff Report
Who needs the one percent when you have the support of Sugar Daddies everywhere?
According to a survey issued by the folks at SeekingArrangement.com, Bernie Sanders is a big favorite among the men who use their online sugar relationship service.
“Plenty of Sugar Daddies are considered ‘One-Percenters,’ making Sanders an unexpected choice,” Brandon Wade, Founder and CEO of SeekingArrangement.com said in a press release.
The company sent out a survey to more than 7,500 sugar daddies to see who they were financially supporting in the 2016 election.
Here’s what they found:
Rank – Candidate – Number of Sugar Daddy donors
Bernie Sanders – 345
Donald Trump – 291
Hillary Clinton – 174
Ted Cruz – 100
Marco Rubio – 50
“In the past, Sugar Daddies helped choose the next president by donating to Obama, Bill Clinton, and even George W. Bush,” Wade said. “However, it seems that may not be the case for this election.”

Blind Man Sues McDonald’s For Refusing Him Service After Walking Up To The Drive Thru After HoursBy Allyn Farach
A visually impaired man is suing McDonald’s for their drive thrus lack of accessibility, reports NBC NEWS.
According to the affidavit, Scott Magee was refused admission to a McDonald’s after hours, which made him unable to purchase food.
On the date in question, Mr. Magee approached the McDonald’s restaurant and attempted to enter its interior for the purpose of purchasing goods and services.
However, the lobby doors were locked and Mr. Magee was unable to enter Mr. Magee then attempted to walk up to the drive-thru.
The McDonald’s personnel therein refused service to him, laughed, and told him to go away.
Various McDonald’s have driven through service only after a certain time, which would impede customers who cannot drive, according to NBC.
“While McDonald’s sighted customers can independently browse, select, and pay for products at Defendant’s drive-thrus without the assistance of others, blind people must hope for a companion with a car or paid taxi services to assist them in selecting and purchasing McDonald’s food,” the suit claims.

Lindsey Wagner, a lawyer who covers various areas of law, including discrimination, explained, “Likely, McDonalds’ position will be either that they’re not denying (the prosecution) access because they could have access with a driver or that changing their drive through services would be an undue burden on them.”
Undue burden is mentioned in section 12182 of the Americans With Disabilities Act, and is described by the ADA’s ‘Reaching Out’ section of their website as “significant difficulty or expense.”
Wagner also said that if the outcome falls in the prosecution’s favor, it may bring some changes.
“If it does go to trial, and if the plaintiff is successful in their claim, it would likely mean that McDonald’s would need to make changes for accommodations for those who are blind,” Wagner said. “This might be a new wave of the way that businesses provide services to also make sure that the drive through access also has accommodations for individuals that are visually impaired.”

For $20 An Hour, You Can Get A Professional Pokemon Go Trainer To Catch Pokemon For You
Why do you do this to us?
In what could literally only happen in 2016 America, we learned today that you can actually hire a “professional” Pokemon Go trainer to go around and catch Pokemon for you while you do adult things during the day.
For the low, low price of $20 an hour, you can take the fun right out of that app!
Don’t believe us?
Just check out the Craigslist ad promoting the service.
“About me: Also known as ‘Golbat-chan’ on sites like 4chan and imgur, I am a 24-year-old lifelong Pokemon enthusiast who wants to help YOU become the very best.
My services are simple: I will walk around in 1-4 hour shifts signed in to your account capturing every single Pokemon I come into contact with, activating every Poke Stop I pass and walking nonstop to help hatch your eggs. I’ll even send you hourly updates while you’re at work/class/on a hot date informing you of any really exciting things I’ve come across for you. Pokemon training help, gym battles and strategy tips are also included, if requested.”
Oh dead God…
“About me: I’m a white female, NYU grad, and a well-employed freelance journalist with a massive Golbat tattoo on my arm. I have been playing Pokemon (both cards and gameboy/DS) since 1997 and Pokemon GO since its opening day. I’m in between major projects and have a lot of spare time on my hands right now and also may or may not write an article about this in the future. Personally, I am a level 15 trainer in Pokemon GO right now and control all of the gyms near my place. I know what I’m doing. For more info about me (and to see that I am, in fact, a real human being) check out the VICE article that has been written about me and my obsession.”
On the other hand, is this really any stranger than something like Bitcoin for example? I mean, we are now living in a society where we are creating our own cryptocurrency, we might as well create a cryptoworkforce of cryptojobs.
Still not sold on this thing?
Well you wait.
“I will catch them all,” the ad reads. “I will focus in on catching specific types of Pokemon (i.e. fire, water, electric) if you want. I’ll even send you silly screenshots so you don’t feel too much FOMO while you’re doing something that prevents you from accessing PokeWorld.”
So what do you think? Would you ever use a paid Pokemon trainer to help beef up your Pokemon Go game?
