But Confucius has answered them with the final whistle, it’s all over. Germany, having trounced England’s famous midfield trio of Bentham, Locke and Hobbes in the semi-final, have been beaten by the odd goal.

The internet just changed: Net Neutrality is dead.

Last Wednesday, FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler announced a proposal for new rules that would allow for a “ fast lane” of Internet traffic for content providers who are willing (and able) to pay a fee. [1] The proposal reverses the FCC’s previous commitment to net neutrality and open internet and allows ISP’s like Comcast or Verizon to slow down and censor services that don’t pay the toll.

We have to be totally honest, this situation is seriously grim. But there is still hope. The FCC already knows that the Internet community wants net neutrality, but they think they can put their spin on these new rules and sneak them through. If we can prove them wrong right now with a massive public outcry, we can literally save the Internet once again.

We need to stop the FCC now. Big business groups are already ramping up lobbying efforts with the FCC in swarms since Wednesday’s announcement in support of censoring the open Internet and to ensure this dangerous proposal moves forward. [2]

This is a critical moment. In the last few weeks more than 65,000 people have taken action with us. Can you help us get to 80,000 by the end of the day today?

IF YOU ARE NOT SIGNAL BOOSTING THIS YOU ARE NOT PAYING ATTENTION.

IF THE U.S. FALLS TO THIS IT WILL OPEN OTHER DANGEROUS DOORS INTERNATIONALLY.

I feel like too many people think “online” and “fake” are interchangeable words.

this whole scene is so good because from the one pan of his brothers desk alone you are aware that he used to have a silly side to him (and explains how he can do cartwheels and shit later in the movie)

also you can see his brother has a betty boop doll, meaning she was probably a favorite of his and is the reason valiant treats her kindly.

This shot alone is why I love “Who Framed Roger Rabbit”

Ideas for writing time travel.

A corollary to the Novikov Self-Consistency Principle is also the Predestination Paradox - that the events of the past REQUIRE the time travel in order for the timeline to remain as it is. One was always MEANT to travel back in time in order for the current timeline to exist. NOT travelling through time would otherwise completely alter the timeline.
For Example:
Your father was about to be run down by a car, but was saved by a mysterious stranger. Later, you travel back in time and BECOME the mysterious stranger who saved his life. Without your own intervention, you would not exist.
As Seen in:
-Babylon 5
-Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure

It’s a difficult concept for many to fathom because it works outside of how one normally perceives time (i.e. moving in one direction from cause to effect). However, the possibility of time travel itself suggests the possibility that effect can precede cause.

Good explanation of time travel.
