Breaking news: The D.C. Appeals Court just killed Net Neutrality.This could be the end of the Internet as we know it. But it doesn’t have to be. Tell the FCC to restore Net Neutrality: http://bit.ly/1iOOjoe

they want to make the internet like tv. with channels and paying to get to specific websites and things. net neutrality = not doing that

This impacts every internet user. Please signal boost the hell out of this and sign the petition if you are American

I do not reblog things like this very often, but this affects me both personally and my business as a freelance artist.
In the economy here; cash is already strapped as it is. You bet your ass companies would suck the ever living life out of misc. art sites.
I don’t want it to ever come down to me choosing between groceries or purchasing a new tier package via comcast to be able to access tumblr or DeviantArt (let alone not guaranteeing I’ll even be seen by my customer base since they may not want to pay out their asses either). It doesn’t seem important to most, but I do 90% of my business online entirely.
Please sign up, fight for this and share it with your followers/friends/family and urge them to give them hell as well.

Not writing related, but this is incredibly important. While we pay for service via ISPs, the internet has been a relatively free space where everyone, no matter their income level, is able to connect, access a wealth of information, and express themselves. The Internet has become a major part of our culture as human beings and the notion that ISPs might be able to limit what sites I can access unless I pay them more is utterly sickening. A lot of us are cash strapped as is, and I’d rather not be limited even more by someone else’s greed. Net Neutrality is essential and I hope you guys will understand why it needs to remain.
-Morgan
P.S. Signal boost this if you’re able.

“ limit what sites I can access unless I pay them more”
 limit what sites I can access unless I pay them more

DO YOU WANT THIS? NO?? CLICK THE LINK. REBLOG.

As I understand this ruling, it means that businesses now have to pay extra to ISPs to have access to their websites through that ISP provided at a reasonable speed. If you don’t pay, users’ access to your website will be slowed to a crawl - so independent people and small businesses can forget about getting onto that high speed access tier. 
This means that the American internet is going to be firmly under the control of those who have the most money. You’ll only get to see the content of those who can pay the ISPs to provide access at a reasonable speed. This means that you can expect to see skewed representation of just about everything, with those bigger businesses who can afford to pay ISPs a premium for access deciding what you can and cannot read, view and consume on the internet.
This is not something that we have in the UK. Our ISPs compete with each other to provide higher speeds, better services and lower prices, but because there’s a monopoly in the US of a few ISPs who provide services, they can afford to do this to you. You can’t go anywhere else, after all.
Everyone in the US needs to sign that petition, call their representatives, write angry letters and do whatever you can to tell your government that this ruling is Not Okay.

Maybe you guys are sick of this post but It’s really important to freelance artists and pretty much everyone who uses the internet, so here it is again.  \o0o/

This is important guys i don’t care if im an art blog only posting art dis shit is IMPORTANT

I DON’T CARE WHAT YOU’RE DOING; STOP EVERYTHING, AND SIGN THE PETITION. DO WHATEVER YOU CAN. WE NEED TO FUCKING STOP THIS.

I have a question.. Does this only effect America? I live in Europe and I don’t want this either, but does it count if I sign the petition?

Why does cancer have to exist? Why does it have to take the life of someone so innocent, a mere teenager who had a whole life ahead of her?

Miss you Jesi, but I know you’re not hurting anymore.

I hate cancer! My best friend’s father died, my grandpa, one of my favourite teachers and at least twenty other people I know. We can only pray that there’ll be an effective cure someday!

Clear your mind here

25 things i wish i realized while i was still in highschool

-

  1. That zit on your cheek literally does not matter
  2. Skipping class one time will not ruin your entire life
  3. The boy you’re trying so hard to impress will mean nothing to you in a year
  4. Bring coffee to school and ignore people who make fun of it
  5. Bring a snack, too. Don’t care if people hear you eating in class.
  6. Being popular isn’t and will never be something that seriously defines who you are
  7. Appreciate your teachers
  8. Doing/not doing drugs doesn’t make you cooler than anyone else.
  9. Neither does drinking
  10. Talk to the kid sitting alone; even though it may not change your life it could drastically change theirs
  11. Participate in school events
  12. Wear sweatpants everyday
  13. Or wear a dress everyday
  14. Wear whatever makes you comfortable
  15. Nobody will laugh at you if you sit alone at your lunch table for five minutes
  16. Utilize the library
  17. Don’t wait 20 minutes to text someone back just to seem cool
  18. Tell your friends how much you love them
  19. Cherish your free textbooks… seriously
  20. Help confused freshmen, be nice to them. Remember how much you would have appreciated it a couple years ago
  21. Compliment the other girls in the bathroom
  22. That fight you had with your mom really isn’t that big of a deal
  23. It’s okay to cry
  24. Don’t let your desire for a romantic relationship stop you from forming platonic relationships
  25. Remember that life does go on

WARNING: DO NOT BUY THIS DOG FOOD

DO NOT BUY THIS BRAND.

Pedigree is on a nationwide recall.

Pedigree made my 6 month old puppy too ill to eat anything for days.

If you have this brand please toss it and buy Purina, Science Diet, or Blue.

Please do not feed this to you animals.

Do not buy this brand.

It’s true

I needed to reblog this, because I own a dog and it’s true. Every vet here says that Pedigree is literally the worst food you could give to your dog. It’s mostly not even made out of real meat, but of so called animal by-products. These are for example meat and bone meal. Animal by-products are not healthy for your dog! So please don’t buy Pedigree!

Can we talk for a moment …

nightsky1996:

about Fjord Horses?

I mean …

image

Look a them!

image

They’re so freaking majestic!

image

Look at their manes, it looks like dark chocolate and vanilla ice cream!

image

And they are so freaking adorable! They look so darn huggable!

image

And such beautiful eyes too.

image

And here is a momma with her baby.

image

And I guess we’ll end it on this picture of a Fjord Horse with a long mane drinking water while a swan passes by.

TLDR: If you don’t think Fjord Horses are the best, you’re wrong.

GUUYS!! SO THERE’S THIS FJORD HORSE AT OUR BARN AND HIS OWNER ASKED ME TO RIDE HIM REGULARLY! I’M SO HAPPY RIGHT NOW!
