Those people must be blind to the fact that Comcast held Nexflix hostage by throttling their bandwidth unless they paid a ransom.

Well fuck you too pal

Yes, you’re right, I hope freedom of opinion and speech gets filtered by the owners of the government subsidized privately owned infrastructure you paid for.

Right? Also, how many times have they had to scroll past that copy-pasta going around with the list of high profile net neutrality violations? At this point I am beginning to wonder if most of them are bots or shills.

I heard there is a guy launching himself in a homemade rocket to prove the earth is flat this weekend.

We'll get the last laugh when he crashes into the big screen TV projection that we think is the sky.

His last words were- "In case I don't see you, good afternoon, good evening and good night"

I look forward to reading all about it in the 2018 Darwin Awards

When he dies flat earthers will say he was killed by round earthers to keep him from revealing his findings.

Politics should not be something that trends.

Politics should not be something that trends.

Congress has a 14% approval rating and a 95% reelection rate (as of 2014).

While your numbers are true, it leaves out another important number and that is the approval rate of the constituent of their specific senator. the general approval rate of congress is low but most voters like their individual congressmen enough to vote for them again. The average voter suffers from the delusion that their congressman isn't the problem its everyone else's. That's the scariest part of that study.

Appointed by politicians.

The FCC are appointed bureaucrats not politicians. They don't care about reelection.

Most memes don't translate to action because there's a lot of work for where to start. People want it easy. So here's easy for you. They even provide a script.

If you can't call for whatever reason, ResistBot allows you to text, and then sends the text as a fax to your representative/congressperson on your behalf with your contact information. You can text "RESIST" to 50409 or you can use facebook messenger to use ResistBot.

The amount of senators with full voicemail boxes is too damn high

I emailed several senators and donated a bit of money several months ago. I got canned replies back about how I don’t know what I’m talking about, and they’re fighting for ‘real’ open internet etc etc. I don’t think they give a shit about anything besides the money ISPs are shoveling their way. Our government is full of scum.

Try resist bot. It faxes them which may get through or it may be ignored as well but worth a shot.

You can't outrun your fork.

Also, get used to being hungry.

Big one. I'm trying to loose weight and when I felt a real gargling hunger in my stomach I was like wtf is this shit, and then I remembered, oh ya when you don't eat half a cow everyday you become hungry.

But what if you love to eat? How to get rid of your favourite hobby?

Double standards everywhere

The double standard of "don't do stupid shit while you're on the clock and piloting a multimillion dollar aircraft."

I don't see how these two situations even remotely compare.

Actually there is a certain amount of mandatory flight time that a military pilot is required to engage in. This happened during mandatory flight time. His dick drawing cost America nothing at all.

A government employee, on the job, draws a dick in the sky using a plane that costs an ass ton of money to operate which is payed for by tax payers.

VS.

Individuals in the streets with shitty knit hats that (edit: supposedly) look like vaginas

This meme is aggressively stupid

Worth it.

My friend is taking my native language in college, I offered to tutor her for free. Haven't heard from her since week 6 of class.

Please keep us informed, I'd like to see how this played out.

OP has a crush on this girl

This happened to me once before on another post. I was accused a ton of times of being a man trying to hook up with a woman. Nobody asks. Just automatically assumes.

3-4 beers every night seems like a lot.

A light beer and 1.5oz shot of booze have about the same calories. A regular 12 oz beer only has 50 more calories. If you’re trying to lose weight by drinking a different type of booze, it’s hardly much of a difference. Just stop drinking as much booze.

I suppose it also depends on how you drink it, if you take it like a shooter it just seems odd, however if you've got a sipping whiskey, then the drink lasts a while and draws less attention.

Nope.

If you're trying to stay in ketosis the type of calories you're eating do matter.

This is almost as bad as the Pennsylvania congressman that was fiercely against abortion. Then when his side chick got pregnant he demanded her to get an abortion.

It's called projection. It doesn't always apply (see examples in comments) but it definitely happens.
