We make “funny videos” on the Internet.

…net neutrality is in jeopardy. Net Neutrality is the principle that says ISPs can’t discriminate between different types of traffic.
That means that…
…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.
…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…
…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…
…your Internet bill could be a bigger “fustercluck” than your cable bill.
Now, you might be thinking…
…isn’t the government supposed to protect me from fragrant doucheholery like this?
…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.
…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…
…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.

I could start this post with the typical “Every day should be Suicide Prevention Day”, but that’s a given - of course it should.
I have met a lot of troubled people in my time, and I often act as a shoulder for those who have struggles.
Suicide is obviously a terrible thing, not in the sense that you’re a terrible person for even considering it, but the in the sense that it is an accessible option for many people who feel they can’t continue with day-to-day life.
I have known people who have considered suicide and I know people who have attempted it. I have also known people who have succeeded. Some of these people would have been the last people on earth I thought would ever even consider ending their lives, and that is a deep concern.
I think one thing we all learnt from Robin Williams’ untimely death was that these negative feelings can manifest themselves inside the most unsuspected people. We often take people at face value - people who make jokes and laugh seem to be content. But don’t mistake their humor for happiness. This can be a mechanism people use to disguise how they really feel. It deters people from even considering or thinking that maybe that person is troubled. Laughter becomes something to hide behind, to avoid any discussions about their mental well-being. How do I know this? Because this is a mechanism I use. When I hit my lowest point, that is often when I become most quick witted. It helps keep people’s concerned questions at bay - questions which seem too difficult to answer. It seems easier to hide your feelings of despair than to enter into any serious discussion about them.
"If someone you know is making jokes about killing themselves, ask about it. That was how I expressed it. Help each other. We’re all we have." - A tweet from Brian Quinn (@BQQuinn) - A very important statement.
Sufferers seem to treat suicidal thoughts as a shameful and embarrassing secret, but that is not the case.
You should not be ashamed about how you feel, nor should you feel the need to keep it to yourself.
You should not feel as though the people you trust most will judge you for how you feel.
You should not feel like by confessing how you feel is in anyway burdening those you want to reach out to for help.
You should, however, be proud of yourself for reaching out for help. For describing how you feel. For asking someone to listen. It’s not an easy thing to do, granted, but it could change your entire outlook and decision about suicide.
So I ask anyone who is suffering at the hand of suicidal feelings to take the brave step of reaching out to a loved one. Calling up a hotline. Seeing a doctor. Whatever you are most comfortable with. Suicide is not the only answer. In fact, it shouldn’t be considered an answer at all, to any question. You are far too special to take from this Earth before your time. And I can guarantee you you will be missed if you decide to take your own life, no matter how strongly you feel otherwise.
And to those who don’t, be aware that those you feel you know most well could be fighting the darkest of inner demons. Keep an open mind and make sure those around you know that you are there to talk, to listen, to wipe away tears and, most importantly, you’re there to support them and not to judge them. You could just save someone’s life.
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.)
