Today’s the day. The day you help save the internet from being ruined.
(Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone can start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)
The staff is almost lying here. Retry much every supporter of net nuetrality wants to posit this as just making things unequal.
But internet usage isn’t equal. If you don’t use Netflix 12 hours a day, 1) you’re probably incredibly productive 2) you are far less expensive.
Right now, everyone pays the same for different amounts of data. It costs more for your ISP to bring you 1080p video and 20gb games. And lucky you, you don’t pay for all your massive usage.
Now if you read Wikipedia, BBC, and watch standard definition tv and go outside occasionally (like some sort of freak who doesn’t digest Netflix), you’re paying for your Wikipedia and BBC and standard definition. And you’re parking for your neighbor’s Netflix.
Tumblr and Netflix want this to continue because they are very data heavy and this new law would make their businesses less profitable.
But this law basically is just “You’re allowed to charge people and corporations for the share of the data they use”
Maybe this isn’t good for you you don’t think. But it’s fair and anyone who is telling you anything else is just trying to trick you
I am reblogging this because I find this a very important discussion about comic book controversy, and the problems with the “sexualisation” argument when it comes to comics.
It is well worth a watch
(just be warned - there is a lot of cursing)
logic has never made me this moist
>Maddox still exists.
GOD BLESS MADDOX.
The only nations without welfare are third world hell-holes.
You cannot have a modern society without it.
I agree with both of these statements, but your conclusion does not follow. Please provide reasoning and evidence supporting your argument.
What came first the wealth or the welfare state?
Hint: the wealth.
All the nations that have become wealthy have become welfare states doesn’t mean a welfare state makes one wealthy. It could mean that being wealthy makes you more likely to become a welfare state. It probably means that.
But if you want to become wealthier look at what correlates with GDP growth. And ask “does that cause GDP growth?” Because sometimes the answer will be “not really” Third world countries might see much larger GDP growth because they’re GDP per capita is so small to begin with.
Then you’ll be on the right track.
I did a little research for you
These are the OECD (wealthy) countries with the largest welfare states followed by their GDP growth
All but Sweden were not just below the OECD average of 1.3%, only one of those economies is growing.
Now these are the OECD countries with the smallest welfare states followed by their growth rates.
I think those speaks for themselves
Re-identification of Viking corpses has revealed that half of their warriors were female.
"Researchers at the University of Western Australia decided to revamp the way they studied Viking remains. Previously, researchers had misidentified skeletons as male simply because they were buried with their swords and shields. (Female remains were identified by their oval brooches, and not much else.) By studying osteological signs of gender within the bones themselves, researchers discovered that approximately half of the remains were actually female warriors, given a proper burial with their weapons.”
Women have always fought. We have always been there, ‘contributing to history’. Our own, modern sexism contributes to the erasure of it.
Actually, you should see “50% of Viking soldiers were women” and think “hmm that doesn’t sound right let me do further research.
Of 13 bodies of Viking Settlers (not soldiers settler) 6 were female.
So not only is this bullshit because they flat out lied when they used the word warrior, a sample size of 13 doesn’t mean shit.
