Stop Internet Spying

The latest "backdoor SOPA" project aims to "stop piracy" by spying on people and cutting off their internet service. Sign a petition against it.

A wider-focus action: boycott big media. Period. Stop giving your money to the mega-corporations that create and fund initiatives to restrict what people can buy, sell, read, view, or use. Fuck 'em. Spend your entertainment dollars on independent entertainers who are not trying to ruin your life. Hollywood, RIAA, etc. are not the government; they cannot just TAKE your money. They have to convince you to GIVE them your money. Don't. It will hurt them badly. The mainstream music industry is already slowly bleeding to death because they've spent decades pissing off musicians and music fans alike. Hit them again. Capitalism only works if the companies that suck are allowed to fail and die, so they can be replaced by something that might actually be worthwhile.  And send a message to at least one of the megacorps so they'll know why you're boycotting them.

    I've seen "Deathworld Earth" pieces before, but this one is longer and funnier.

    A newly discovered type of pterodactyl had opposable thumbs that it probably used to climb trees and grasp prey.
