If you woke up tomorrow, and your internet looked like this, what would you do?
Imagine all your favorite websites taking forever to load, while you get annoying notifications from your ISP suggesting you switch to one of their approved “Fast Lane” sites.
Think about what we would lose: all the weird, alternative, interesting, and enlightening stuff that makes the Internet so much cooler than mainstream Cable TV. What if the only news sites you could reliably connect to were the ones that had deals with companies like Comcast and Verizon?
On September 10th, just a few days before the FCC’s comment deadline, public interest organizations are issuing an open, international call for websites and internet users to unite for an “Internet Slowdown” to show the world what the web would be like if Team Cable gets their way and trashes net neutrality. Net neutrality is hard to explain, so our hope is that this action will help SHOW the world what’s really at stake if we lose the open Internet.
If you’ve got a website, blog or tumblr, get the code to join the #InternetSlowdown here: https://battleforthenet.com/sept10th
Everyone else, here’s a quick list of things you can do to help spread the word about the slowdown: http://tumblr.fightforthefuture.org/post/96020972118/be-a-part-of-the-great-internet-slowdown
Exciting news! The Internet Slowdown net neutrality protest planned for September 10th is really taking off. This morning, a dozen of the world’s largest websites announced that they’re joining in a big way. Sites you know and love like Etsy, Kickstarter, Wordpress, Vimeo,…

IT’S A RULE TO REBLOG EVERY TIME IT SHOWS UP ON YOUR DASH.

some more gems:
Reblogging forever, please nobody explain.
I started following this girl and her whole dash ended up these. And her last post. I can’t even say words. Anons took her life. If that okay with you, then carry on with your day. If you agree this is unacceptable and okay, then reblog and spread the word. What you say can actually change a persons life! So help out
I don’t care if this makes your dash look ‘ugly’, no matter what type of blog you have you should reblog it.
Why do people do this…
Wow, that was harsh. Well done, internet.
for real though.
American higher education baffles me. The best universities in my country are completely free, and even the private ones are not so expensive that it’d force someone to incur in debt.
Could someone tell me how much US students pay to attend college? In Canada, colleges tend to be 3-5K a year, and universities are 5-7K.
Most schools are between 40-60K. Some (like NYU and a few others) are more.
And no. That’s not a typo.
im already at 36K, with one year to go
the college i’m looking at it 32k a year.
yet people shame others for not having a college degree. makes no sense, really
okay so perks of being a canadian are being suddenly realized by me again, gosh though you guys really need to protest or something its ridiculous how costly it is in the States.Not saying we need a rebellion but that’s exactly what I’m saying… I’ve had it up to here with Americas bullshit
I graduated from a 4 year university in 2011. I had scholarships, grants, paid out of pocket every semester, and still needed loans just to make it through. Paying as much as I can afford each month, I won’t be paid off until 2040. I will be in debt from my undergrad degree until I am 50. This is disgusting. America
I’m lucky I’m not in debt, but I decided which school(s) to go to based on what wouldn’t break me, not which university would help me advance my working career. ‘Merica.
Here in Spain we complain a lot about university price rises and for my first year at a quite prestigious public university I paid €2.5k. That’s hella expensive for me. Looking at American prices I don’t think I’ll be complaining again anytime soon, as I’m starting Law School this year at a comparatively measly 770€.
the worst is when you’re reading a really good book that follows multiple characters’ stories and you love it 90% of the time until it periodically switches back to that one character’s story that you just could not care less about and it’s like an entire chapter of internal groaning while waiting for the plot to switch back to a character you actually care about
I know I’m just asking for hate but goddamn Tyrion Lannister that insufferable twat everytime he appears my reading speed decreases by 70%.
I’m at 1,572 right now, so 428 to go!

Teen Wolf AU - Everyone only sees black and white until they find their soul mate. Stiles has given up on finding his soul mate like his parents did. Until he trespasses on Derek Hale’s land.
I knew I had to write this the moment I saw it on my dashboard. I ficced this so hard, I hope it’s okay?
It happens to Scott first. It’s an eventful start for the school year, Stiles thinks. Not only has his best friend been bitten by a rogue werewolf –whether Scott believes it or not that’s what happened, Stiles has done research–, he also finds his soulmate the second he hears her across the building with his freakishly improved hearing.
“Stiles,” he hisses from his seat. “Stiles!”
Stiles scrambles to turn his attention on Scott, and his pen clatters to the floor amidst the flailing.
“You dropped your blue pen, buddy.”
Stiles stares down for a second, sees his pen steadily rolling away from him until it collides with the leg of a chair and stops. Then, he looks at Scott, the very definition of dumbfounded. This can’t be happening. He just can’t have sex with his best bud, just the thought is grossing him out and wait, why isn’t he getting the full Technicolor experience too? Can that be a thing, not being your soulmate’s soulmate? Of course it would happen to him, Stiles just has the worst luck in the history of ever. He could be jinxed by a gypsy and he’d probably experience an enhancement. “Oh, wow, oh, no no no dude c’mon no don’t this to me —”
Yeah I agree, it’s so hard to come across someone who speaks Spanish and I feel dickish using it to answer inboxes from my few Spanish IRL friends that follow me. Tumblr is more readily available for English users so that’s what I go with, but anyway it’s always nice to talk to someone you share a language with, it’s a different viewpoint.
