Mrs. Clinton also trails JEB BUSH by 10 points and DONALD TRUMP by seven points there in the poll. (Pacelli)
Pepsi is celebrating "Back to the Future" with a new edition of the soft drink called "Pepsi Perfect."
Fans of the movie will remember that MICHAEL J FOX's character, Marty McFly, arrived in the future on Oct 15, 2015, and orders a Pepsi. So the company's celebrating the date with a limited edition bottle of the soda --made with real sugar, no substitutes-- which you can buy for $20.15.
E! TV also reports there will only be 65-hundred bottles made --with 200 earmarked for the first two-hundred people who show up at Pepsi's Comic-Con booth in NYC dressed as Marty McFly.
Idle gossip & unconfirmed rumors:

Word is he belted out the hit "What Do You Mean," then followed it up by tickling the ivory to "Let It Be." (Lee)
JUSTIN BIEBER's new album still doesn't have a title, but it will be out on November 13th. Meanwhile, he's gearing up for a massive world tour in 2016. The Confidential gossip column in the New York Daily News says Justin wants to wrap it up with a few stadium dates in the U.S. as co-headlining gigs with ARIANA GRANDE. They'll each do a set, then end the show with a few duets. They've already performed live together. Justin was a surprise guest at the L.A. stop on her "Honeymoon Tour" back in April, and later in Miami. (Marino)
Trolling for IQ points:
San Francisco's butt population is having an emergency. The city recently had a surge in 9-1-1 calls and decided to look into why. The researchers found out that 30 percent of the calls were coming from butt-dials. The problem with the butt dial is that operators don't know the difference between that or if the person is in real trouble and can't talk and have to dispatch police. Officials say that they spend 80 percent of their time chasing these calls and it's really wasting the time of officers. (Myers)
