I remember when people first realized how much funnier these comics were just without Garfield’s dialog, which Jon was never able to hear anyway. Garfield only ever communicated to us readers in thought balloons, after all. What we’re seeing here is Jon’s canonical reality.

I’m torn between laughing at these and being deeply worried for Jon

CollegeHumor explains Net Neutrality

collegehumor:

image

I’m Adam.

-And I’m Emily.

We make “funny videos” on the Internet.

-But soon, we might not be able to.

That’s because…

image

…net neutrality is in jeopardy. Net Neutrality is the principle that says ISPs can’t discriminate between different types of traffic.

That means that…

image

…whether you’re a bedroom music producer, a couple on an amateur porn site, or just someone with a start up idea - you get access to the same users as Netflix, Facebook or Amazon. On the Internet, anyone can succeed.

But…

image

\

…America’s ISPs wanna set up a pay-for-play system where rich companies pay extra to get to those users first.

If this happens…

image

…instead of a wonderful playground if innovation that it is now, the Internet will become like cable TV where you can only get stuff that’s been pre-approved by a bunch of old rich guys.

Ten years from now…

image

…your Internet bill could be a bigger “fustercluck” than your cable bill.

Now, you might be thinking…

image

…isn’t the government supposed to protect me from fragrant doucheholery like this?

Unfortunately…

image

…the former chairman of the FCC (government agency that’s SUPPOSED to protect you) is now the cable industry’s head lobbyist. And another former cable industry lobbyist is now the CURRENT head of the FCC.

So…

image

…we can’t trust the FCC to make the right decision on their own. That’s why WE need to protect the Internet we love. The chaotic, AWESOME, often quite weird, place where literally everyone’s voice can be heard.

In a few months…

image

…the FCC will approve this festering soal of proposal unless we speak up. The Internet is one of the few places where human voices speak louder than money. So while that’s still the case, let’s use those voices. Go to DEARFCC.ORG and tell them to protect Net Neutrality. Thanks for doing your part to protect the Internet.

please someone reassure my this is just fuckin  w people right.

this is bullshit what the fuck

Wait y’alls cups are really that small? holy fuck

why the fuck anyone needs 1.3L of coke in one sitting is beyond me but anyway

YOU EXPECT YOUR CHILDREN TO DRINK 700ML DRINKS TO COME WITH THEIR FUCKING HAPPY MEAL??? FUCK OUTTA HERE AMERICA

We have a “Kids” size that is smaller than the small. It’s like an Australian medium (which is the same size as a can of coke btw). Also, in the US all of the sizes cost the same amount. $1. You basically pick based on how much soda you want, not how much you want to pay. Which is excellent…if you want to give an entire nation diabetes. 
Sometimes I get a little frustrated when people talk about how McDonald’s is bad for you and then in the same breath propose going to a local restaurant where they buy a half-pound bacon cheeseburger. The wheat is the same wheat, the meat is the same meat. There’s nothing about McDonald’s that’s intrinsically bad for you except portion sizes, which are just as bad, if not worse, at sit-down service places.
There’s this perception that McDonald’s is junk food simply because it’s McDonald’s and, frankly, I’m starting to think it’s classist. Like, It’s where poor people go, so it must not be substandard.
The only problem with McDonald’s is that when you get a Big Mac Meal with large fries and a coke, you’re getting 1,300 calories set in front of you…and unfortunately it tastes so damn good that you’ll eat the whole thing. 
Oh…another problem with McDonald’s is that to keep their prices low they pay poverty-level wages to, increasingly, adult professional people, but that’s not what I hear people complaining about.

Also, I want to know what McDonalds they are going to, because when I get a medium drink, it’s the size of that small. This is more accurate for Burger King or Hardee’s.

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.

P.S. Signal boost this if you’re able.

I’m 28 and yup. Exact feelings.

These people clearly haven’t seen the ORIGINAL Incredible Journey. No talking animals. Much more tears.
