congratulations to all of us who helped stop SOPA once again! the petition reached its goal thanks to every single one of you who succeeded in signing!
however, apparently, once again, this fight isn't over. just like last time, they're putting policies through that have the same exact intention hidden inside them. um, we're smarter than that, and we need to remind the US government of it. so here's another petition to help stop SOPA-like policies from passing. the petition ends on april 13th, and I know we can all make an impact.
we've built our lives on the intetrnet. it's no longer "get the fock off your computer and get a REAL life." it's more than that. sure, there are some people living in their mom's basement, eating chips and harassing "n00bs" in MMORPGs like they're the shit, but many of us have increased our talents online, built friendships, found sources of comfort and motivation. we've educated ourselves with knowledge found on the internet. hell, do you think I'd know what a judas cradle is without the internet??? and people like pewdiepie have developed careers online, and it's not just successful youtube channels. how much money do you think homestarrunner.com rakes in? and aspiring animators get their start on sites like albinoblacksheep and newgrounds. comedians, musicians, and plenty of other artists are spotted because of the lives they've created on the internet.
and me? well, I wouldn't have you. PWF wouldn't be what it is, nothing I do would even matter, it'd just be another crappy macaroni picture stuck to the fridge with a ten year old magnet you've had since you were a child, probably being some type of letter or number. anyway, let's keep fighting, mkay? I've gotta go lay back down. I dunno if you noticed my absence all yesterday, but I've been having pretty bad withdrawal symptoms from running out of one of my meds. I got them back, so now I'm in the recovering stage. I thought I'd have the energy to get back up, but apparently not. :/
WOW. I thought I put in the link to the petition, but I didn't. just... just WOW...
