I’m not a scientist, man. I can tell you what recorded history says, I can tell you what the Bible says, but I think that’s a dispute amongst theologians and I think it has nothing to do with the gross domestic product or economic growth of the United States…I don’t think I’m qualified to answer a question like that. At the end of the day, I think there are multiple theories out there on how the universe was created and I think this is a country where people should have the opportunity to teach them all.
Sen. Marco Rubio • Answering a direct question on the Earth’s age during an interview with GQ’s Michael Hainey. We don’t expect the Senator’s comments to make my headlines on their own; however, the overall tone of the piece certainly seemed to have the air of a man testing the political waters for a spot on the Republican ticket in 2016.

The Blind Faith of the One-Eyed Matador
Last fall, one of Spain’s greatest matadors took a horn to the face. It was a brutal goring, among the most horrific in the history of bullfighting. Miraculously, Juan Jose Padilla was back in the bullring—sí, fighting bulls—a mere five months later. And in the process of losing half his sight, he somehow managed to double his vision.

In his hospital room, as soon as he can move again, he begins to rehearse bullfighting moves with the sheets. And on October 19, less than two weeks after the accident, he gives a press conference in a wheelchair with his face uncovered.
“I have no rancor toward this bull or toward my profession,” he slurs into the mike. He makes the following pledge: “I will return to dress as a torero.”

Skip the metaphors: This is a man who actually took a bull by the horns and lived to tell about it. Major props that he’s still going.
