Done.

How fucking clueless is the NFL? They have no morals or values of any kind (apart from money), and only respond when public pressure comes to bear.

You have that whole Ray Rice wife-beating monster case, where he was given a slap on the wrist…until everybody got outraged that he was only given a slap on the wrist. A bunch of lies were then told to cover up the obvious bullshit reversal.

Now you got this Adrian Peterson ass who beats toddlers with wooden sticks. Just three days ago, the Vikings said he’d be allowed to play and practice while his child abuse case oozed its way through court…until everybody got outraged, and they were all, suddenly, “After giving the situation additional thought…

Only a freshly Windexed pane of glass is more transparent than these NFL dipshits.

"What is a country? A country is a piece of land surrounded on all sides by boundaries, usually unnatural. Englishmen are dying for England, Americans are dying for America, Germans are dying for Germany, Russians are dying for Russia. There are now fifty or sixty countries fighting in this war. Surely so many countries can’t all be worth dying for."

— Joseph Heller, Catch-22

Good morning. We had the earliest snowfall since 1888. A new record, but by only two days, so not really that amazing
I predict another long, cold winter. Yay! I love winter :)

section9 said about I DID IT!Who is your senator?

+++

Tim Johnson, a Democrat, and John Thune, a Republican. I was connected by Tumblr to Johnson’s office…

sitsafe said regarding I DID IT!: What did you tell them?

+++

Tumblr actually provides some handy talking points in case you get nervous or tongue-tied—not to mention the fact they actually make the call for you. I scanned those talking points, but, as you can imagine, I had my own.

It was only like a 45 second conversation. I just told him that I strongly supported net neutrality and that I thought fast and slow lanes were a horrible, discriminatory idea.

He thanked me, took my name and address, and that was it.

GET THOSE PHONES RINGING.

I DID IT! Net Neu-fucking-trality! Tumblr actually connected my call to my senator. Do it. Click the link at the top. Fuck this controlling the internet shit.

PS: you only talk to a lackey, not an actual politician…

STILL.

staff:

Today’s the day. The day you help save the internet from being ruined.

Ready? 

Yes, you are, and we’re ready to help you.

(Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone could start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)

"Aren’t you all entitled to your half-assed musings on the divine? You’ve thought about eternity for twenty-five minutes and think you’ve come to some interesting conclusions? Well let me tell you, I stand with two thousand years of darkness and bafflement and hunger behind me. My kind have harvested the souls of a million peasants and I couldn’t give a halfpenny jizz for your internet-assembled philosophy."

I was thinking that, too, but have you seen all these beard oils, beard shampoos, beard conditioners, moustache waxes, etc., that have recently come out?

All you really need for beard maintenance is a wide-toothed comb, warm water, and a dab of grapeseed or olive oil…
