If you woke up tomorrow, and your internet looked like this, what would you do?
Imagine all your favorite websites taking forever to load, while you get annoying notifications from your ISP suggesting you switch to one of their approved “Fast Lane” sites.
Think about what we would lose: all the weird, alternative, interesting, and enlightening stuff that makes the Internet so much cooler than mainstream Cable TV. What if the only news sites you could reliably connect to were the ones that had deals with companies like Comcast and Verizon?
On September 10th, just a few days before the FCC’s comment deadline, public interest organizations are issuing an open, international call for websites and internet users to unite for an “Internet Slowdown” to show the world what the web would be like if Team Cable gets their way and trashes net neutrality. Net neutrality is hard to explain, so our hope is that this action will help SHOW the world what’s really at stake if we lose the open Internet.

Everyone else, here’s a quick list of things you can do to help spread the word about the slowdown: http://tumblr.fightforthefuture.org/post/96020972118/be-a-part-of-the-great-internet-slowdown
i reblogged this like 40,000 other people on september 5th 2014. little did i know the evils it would unleash. i opened the door to my room and thousands of 1 dollar bills rushed in like a wave of cash. i was ecstatic until i realized that the money would not stop coming. it keeps coming. it will never stop coming. i’ve opened a portal to the money zone. the entire state of pennsylvania is now covered in money and the surrounding states are next to be covered in endless money. please, save yourselves from the money. at first i thought it would just mean more money, but i quickly realized that thanks to inflation, all this money was now worthless. reblog to share this story to hopefully one day end the money invasion
If everyone doesn’t reblog this, I’m unfollowing all of you.

that in the Chinese version of Disney’s Mulan, the fake name she gives is “Ping”, but her family name “Fa” in English is “Hua” in Chinese, therefore her full name is “Hua Ping”, which is literally “Flower Vase”, and that’s why Shang is so bewildered because it’s a silly name.
but OP how could you not tell them the best part
“hua ping”/flower vase is chinese slang for “camp gay”
