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

100 & Stupid

If you’re going to drive at 100 & stupid mph, at least think of a halfway decent excuse to tell the officer when he pulls you over. “I didn’t see any cops.” Is NOT a good explanation.

Not sure if this was posted already, but I thought it’d be useful.

Un chance?

Can anyone explain this one?
On more then one occasion, I’ve had person(s) being arrested asking, and sometimes begging, for another chance. Why do people think they deserve another chance? If you break the law, you are taking a chance… When you get caught, you had your chance already.

Do people really believe a cop is going to just let them go because they asked for another chance?

Zavala County, TX

Where the Sheriff’s office is still in the old west… No tire spikes, no PIT maneuvers, and no boxing in… When they want to stop a pursuit, the only acceptable solution involves buckshot.

Dreams…

It’s time for vacation when you wake up from a dream about paperwork.

All the laws, all the time.

Some people amaze me. As I was standing in the courthouse, I heard a middle aged man arguing with the clerk. Naturally, my interest peaked and I paid a little more attention.

This man was arguing that he was not required to have insurance for his vehicle. The clerk very professionally quoted the law for him, to which he replied,

“So you mean to tell me that I have to obey every law, all the time?”

He then argued to the clerk that because it “is not humanly possible to follow every law simultaneously, [he] shouldn’t be fined.”

Independence Day

There are more fatalities caused by drunk drivers on the Fourth of July then there are any other day of the year.

Be smart, stay safe, and drive sober.

Immigration

Immigration: “please state your citizenship.”

Subject: “amnesty.”

Immigration: “are you sure about that?”

Subject: “Obama gave me amnesty.”

It kinda bothers me that our immigration officers have to put up with the consequences of bad decisions. Our politicians shouldn’t have even brought up the idea of amnesty. It didn’t work for Reagan, it never solved the problem, and It is not what my country needs.
