1. Scottish Citizens Briefly Stop Off At The Polls On Their Way To The Bar Today
Millions of partially sober Scottish voters head to the polls to decide the fate of their neck of the British Isles. This could either be the most important day in Scottish independence since Mel Gibson was disemboweled by that guy from The Prisoner, or it could be just another day that England gets to keep something that doesn't belong to it. We'll know after the polls close at 10 p.m. BST.

2. New iPhone Operating System Fixes Security Issues Apple Says It Never Had
According to Apple, the newly released io8 operating system will make it impossible for the company to share customer information with government agencies, a practice that Apple says never ever happens.

4. Satanic Temple To Hand Out Activity Book For Florida Kids Because Apparently Satan Is Just A Troll
In order to protest an Orange County, Florida court's decision that religious materials can be given to children in public schools, a Satanic organization has decided to pass out their own Devil-themed coloring and activity book. I suppose sacrificing virgins in the pale moonlight gets old after a while.

5. Grumpy Actress Chosen As Voice Of Grumpy Cat
Parks & Recreation's Aubrey Plaza will provide the voice for the Internet's favorite disaffected feline in the Lifetime Channel's upcoming holiday movie Grumpy Cat's Worst Christmas Ever. It's nice to see that her management people are really looking out for her.
That there hasn't been a Beetlejuice remake starring Aubrey Plaza and TJ Miller proves Hollywood can't even do things wrong right.— Josh Gondelman (@joshgondelman) July 26, 2013
