Slow clap.

Slow clap.

Enjoy having your Internet slowed down for alledged copyright infringement.

Also CISPA is trying to come back as we speak.

‘Murika, you let CAS pass. If you don’t stop CISPA, say goodbye to Free Internet.

»>Here’s a link to the Stop CISPA petition.«<

I WILL REBLOG THIS EVERY MOTHER FUCKING DAY UNTIL THE 15TH.

15 days. 82 246 signatures needed. Only 411 were made yesterday.

even if you didn’t, fucking put your goddamn signature there (assuming you’re an american and actually can do that) and signal boost it.


14 days, 82 037 signatures needed. Only 209 were made yesterday.

Here’s some info on what will happen to you if you don’t fucking sign this petition.

  1. Your private information from sites, such as Facebook and Google, will be now available to the Goverment. And there’s jack shit you will be able to do about it. If someone doesn’t like you, they can go and check all the information Facebook and Google have about you
  2. Your military will ALSO have access to said private info.
  3. No warrants or subpoenas (also known as the “there’s jack shit you will be able to do about it” part)
  4. Companies that join this shit become immune to criminal and civil liability (also “an aka the “there’s jack shit you will be able to do about it” part”)

If you don’t get how serious that is, watch this video, it’ll demonstrate.

Oh, and GO SIGN THE FUCKING PETITION.

14 days, 81,888 signatures needed. Only 149 were made yesterday.

For RFM, or perhaps at least investigation/clarification?

CAS wasn’t a law that was passed, it was a procedure agreed upon by the majority of American ISPs and enacted. Maybe one of the reasons people are ignoring you guys is because you sound like a bunch of obnoxious idiots.

Here’s some actual useful information in CISPA and why/how it should be stopped for those who want it:

I love this image so much.
I’ve seen some women who are offended by this and say it’s ridiculous that her cleavage is showing and things of that sort.
Personally, I think it’s great.
Why should we have an image of a women with her hair tied up and flexing her muscles like she’s a man? (not that that isn’t great too!) In a way it suggests that when our hair is down, our breasts are visible and we wear (GASP) lipstick, we’re somehow lesser than men? We can do it! We can be feminine and successful.
You see what I’m saying here, ladies?
You don’t have to lose your femininity. Being feminine is great. Being masculine is great. Strength is not limited to one way of being.


This is perfect. Like actually.

A few things to keep in mind when the NASA budget comes up for review. - ZU


For every dollar we spend on NASA, we net a 6-8 dollar return on said investment. Why are we sucking epigenetic dick when it comes to doing things that make sense and are beneficial to us?

But for every dollar we spend on tanks, we get more tanks.

It turns out procrastination is not typically a function of laziness, apathy or work ethic as it is often regarded to be. It’s a neurotic self-defense behavior that develops to protect a person’s sense of self-worth.

You see, procrastinators tend to be people who have, for whatever reason, developed to perceive an unusually strong association between their performance and their value as a person. This makes failure or criticism disproportionately painful, which leads naturally to hesitancy when it comes to the prospect of doing anything that reflects their ability — which is pretty much everything.

But in real life, you can’t avoid doing things. We have to earn a living, do our taxes, have difficult conversations sometimes. Human life requires confronting uncertainty and risk, so pressure mounts. Procrastination gives a person a temporary hit of relief from this pressure of “having to do” things, which is a self-rewarding behavior. So it continues and becomes the normal way to respond to these pressures.

Particularly prone to serious procrastination problems are children who grew up with unusually high expectations placed on them. Their older siblings may have been high achievers, leaving big shoes to fill, or their parents may have had neurotic and inhuman expectations of their own, or else they exhibited exceptional talents early on, and thereafter “average” performances were met with concern and suspicion from parents and teachers.

iamtheniiiiight replied to your post: Was Raiden always a cyborg? I know he had bar…

i don’t understand either. i thought they de-robotted him during the end of MGS:4, but it looks like they went full cyborg again for this game. not sure if want.

I think Revengeance takes place before the events of MGS4?

Nevermind, apparently that was the original plan for the game but they ditched it.

If you look closely at his body at the end of MGS4 you can see weird seams that prove it’s just another exoskeleton. I always imagined he could swap between those things like the Borg Queen… <_<

When people turn to fictional characters, it’s often because they want an escape. The stories of these people shelter us from the storm of our daily lives; they save us, if only for a little while. But when we really give in, become invested, let ourselves be vulnerable, something changes. We begin to feel that we know them. It’s no longer just an escape, but part of us, something that makes us who we are.

These characters teach us that incredible adversity can be overcome. That people can love each other forever. That life can be an adventure. That magic can be real. And even if these miracles have never happened to us, we begin to go through life believing that, someday, they could. 

If anybody ever tells me that storytelling isn’t important anymore, I’ll show them this post.
