THIS GETS ME EVERY FUCKING TIME

-And I’m Emily.
We make “funny videos” on the Internet.
-But soon, we might not be able to.
…net neutrality is in jeopardy. Net Neutrality is the principle that says ISPs can’t discriminate between different types of traffic.
That means that…
…whether you’re a bedroom music producer, a couple on an amateur porn site, or just someone with a start up idea - you get access to the same users as Netflix, Facebook or Amazon. On the Internet, anyone can succeed.
…America’s ISPs wanna set up a pay-for-play system where rich companies pay extra to get to those users first.
If this happens…
…instead of a wonderful playground if innovation that it is now, the Internet will become like cable TV where you can only get stuff that’s been pre-approved by a bunch of old rich guys.
Ten years from now…
…your Internet bill could be a bigger “fustercluck” than your cable bill.
Now, you might be thinking…
…isn’t the government supposed to protect me from fragrant doucheholery like this?
…the former chairman of the FCC (government agency that’s SUPPOSED to protect you) is now the cable industry’s head lobbyist. And another former cable industry lobbyist is now the CURRENT head of the FCC.
…we can’t trust the FCC to make the right decision on their own. That’s why WE need to protect the Internet we love. The chaotic, AWESOME, often quite weird, place where literally everyone’s voice can be heard.
In a few months…
…the FCC will approve this festering soal of proposal unless we speak up. The Internet is one of the few places where human voices speak louder than money. So while that’s still the case, let’s use those voices. Go to DEARFCC.ORG and tell them to protect Net Neutrality. Thanks for doing your part to protect the Internet.

I don’t think this is actually what went down, but it’s a really good theory nevertheless
Has sudden urge to binge read
bad shoujo manga.
I had one of those super vivid dreams last night where everything you touch feels real.
My dog was in my dream last night, so I legitimately thought he was at my apartment and I wasn’t sleeping (because when I touched him it felt real). I started crying in my dream I was so happy. THEN A LITTLE LATER I REALIZED IT WAS A DREAM. There was this guy in the dream and he like… became invisible and disappeared completely so I was like “… :|” but RILEY WAS ALWAY THERE WHENI CALLED SO I MILKED IT FOR ALL IT WAS WORTH and just pet him until I woke up. lolololol
9u6 I wonder if this is normal, because no one else I know really talks about missing their pets like I do…. WEIRD.
if video games arent art then explain this
oh my god its back. the light of my life has returned
this is the happiest thing i’ve ever seen
