There's a reason voters believe Obama would make a better sugar daddy -- Mitt Romney is not as charitable with his cash. Not even if it means getting a lap dance from porn stars like Jenna Jameson.

But just how many Benjamins is Romney rolling in these days? And how much did Romney earn in the time it took you to brush your teeth this morning?

If you've seen enough of Paul Ryan's chest or perhaps you are looking for new ways to waste more time, then you should check out There, you can calculate how much the disgustingly rich Republican earns in the time it takes you to do everyday activities, like take a piss on BART escalators, surf the Internet, or refill your prescription for anti-depressants.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
