Finals Week Post 2

Ok, this is coming a bit late. Posting is kind of odd for some reason so I'm doing this live. I'M DOING IT LIVE LIKE BILL O'REILLY.

I really need to get back to studying Developmental Psychology.

So to start today's videos, Yorkies are trained killers:

Derpiest assassins ever.

And now something for the sports fans:

Such grace.

And this last video is long. This is easily the longest video I've ever shared and I doubt I'll ever share anything this long again. It explains what SOPA and PIPA are and if you aren't informed I beg you to watch it because it affects you no matter where in the world you live.

It pertains to internet censorship in the most insane proportions. If either of those acts pass it would give giant companies the ability to shut down any site they want if they feel like it. An example would be if a user on a site such a Youtube has a video they don't like, all of Youtube can be shut off immediately. Or if a blog on Blogger has a picture they don't like all of Blogger is now offline.

This isn't crazy, things like this have already happened but with other sites such as Megaupload. And it will only get worse unless people stop these insane bills that Congress is pushing for. The guy in this video explains things in greater depth than I can though so listen to him.

EA supports SOPA, another reason to hate EA.

I'm Canadian, I can't do anything about this. But I like my internet freedom as much as the next guy. To all my American followers, I ask that you help the rest of us out, and help to stop either of these insane things from going through.

I'll see you guys Wednesday.

  3. good luck in the last run of your finals. I agree with you about the last video and the insanity that could ensue. Come on Americans! Don't be idiots!

  4. Considering it takes a few million for every gram to put something in space, I'm amazed they even have a ball to begin with.

  5. I saw that SOPA video yesterday. :)
    SOPA sucks but it sucks that WMG already has complete control over youtube anyway.
    I think you should add the link: https://wwws.whitehouse.gov/petitions/!/petition/veto-sopa-bill-and-any-other-future-bills-threaten-diminish-free-flow-information/g3W1BscR
    Which has the actual petition going so It will be easier for the Americans to take action. -It's half finished so it should be vetod soon.

  6. That puppy was way cuter than the baby and that Japanese dude was way past cool. As for SOPA all I can say is the same stuff I always say about it. Stop this shit, stop it now.

  8. Yep already ranted about that insane bill. It's the stupidest friggin thing ever. If they don't kill it and stop wasting tax payers money on it, they are morons. Wait, that's never going to happen, so we're screwed.

  10. ok, baby and puppy cute, but the SOPA stuff is very disturbing, we seem to have walked into a worldwide fascist state.

  11. Space is awesome.

    Also, if SOPA passes, the government is going to have a pretty big problem with the people. They won't get off easy!

  25. It's well known that Yorkies always start with ears of their target. They're the most tender after all...

    I was totally unaware of SOPA. I've got some emails to send out now.

    ReplyDelete
  26. The Yorkie video is really cute - until you remember how sharp puppy teeth are and that this Mom is laughing while her son is getting bitten by the puppy. Not nice. Hope her son's not afraid of tiny mop dogs now.

    Thanks for sharing the SOPA video! REALLY wish they' think these things through better. Grrr Argh.

  49. Nothing pisses off a dog assassin like a giant baby laughing in its face, especially such a skilled assassin -- he went for the ear, no doubt impairing the kid's equilibrium so he could get him down for the three count. You don't laugh at someone with that kind of skill.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Congress will just class SOPA as a vegetable and then they can do anything they want with it.

    ENJOY YOUR FIVE A DAY, BITCHES!
