I'm going to boldly make a prediction (two weeks before the election in the United States) that Hillary Clinton will become the next U.S. president and that Donald Trump (who former prime minister Kim Campbell publicly called a "self-celebrating sexual predator") will not become groper-in-chief. Not only will Biff Tannen lose badly (so we won’t need to use a time machine to fix things), he will lose ignominiously because he'll claim that the election was rigged by “Crooked Hillary and the media” (as he’s already doing at the time of writing).

"Life is short. Have an affair®." This is the (in)famous marketing slogan used by Ashley Madison, a Canadian web site founded in 2008 and operated by Avid Life Media Inc. with the explicit mission statement of helping married individuals chat, connect and ultimately have affairs with one another. The site assured users that use of its services would be "anonymous" and "100 per cent discreet," but, unfortunately, this was not to be the case.
