BAM now men are completely useless. you, too, can open a jar. time to get a divorce
it bothers me that Kansas and Arkansas are not pronounced the same
I’m from the UK and I have been pronouncing Arkansas as Ar-Kansas my whole life
For all my non-american friends, Arkansas is pronounced ark-an-saw
*evil american laughter*
Actually it’s more evil French laughter. Both come from the same basic root referring to the Kansa people. Kansas comes from the Kansas River and uses the English pronunciation hence we pronounce it the way we do. However Arkansas was named after the Algonquian term for a sect of Quapaw in the region known as Akansa. The French then changed the spelling and added the S. In French, you rarely pronounce the S at the end of words. (expres, trois, vous, bas, etc).
Also, due to the confusion caused by it’s name, in the 1880s Arkansas lawmakers ruled that the pronunciation was officially Ar-kan-saw.
And now you know.
Oh my god I never even realized that they have the same letters Ar-kansas. WHERE HAVE I BEEN
Last Wednesday, FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler announced a proposal for new rules that would allow for a “ fast lane” of Internet traffic for content providers who are willing (and able) to pay a fee.  The proposal reverses the FCC’s previous commitment to net neutrality and open internet and allows ISP’s like Comcast or Verizon to slow down and censor services that don’t pay the toll.
We have to be totally honest, this situation is seriously grim. But there is still hope. The FCC already knows that the Internet community wants net neutrality, but they think they can put their spin on these new rules and sneak them through. If we can prove them wrong right now with a massive public outcry, we can literally save the Internet once again.
We need to stop the FCC now. Big business groups are already ramping up lobbying efforts with the FCC in swarms since Wednesday’s announcement in support of censoring the open Internet and to ensure this dangerous proposal moves forward. 
This is a critical moment. In the last few weeks more than 65,000 people have taken action with us. Can you help us get to 80,000 by the end of the day today?
The chairman of the FCC, Tom Wheeler, was previously a lobbyist for the cable and wireless industry. This revolving door our government has with large corporations and their lobbyists is what leads to these kind of policy disasters which crush the competition of big businesses and devastate our individual freedoms. Net Neutrality is important. Very VERY important. But it’s just going to keep coming under fire again and again unless we address the underlying problem and that is the corrupting influence of money in our politics. 28th Amendment, anyone?
Having said that SIGN THE PETITION. We gotta do what we can at the moment.
Yo I've got a problem with your face: it's way too beautiful and there isn't NEARLY enough photos showing off how pretty it is. (at least on tumblr anyway)
My only problem with having my face all over tumblr is that 1) People start telling me that I’m conceited (I mean, fuck them, it’s my tumblr, but I still don’t like dealing with them) and 2) There is pretty much 0 control over personal things on tumblr.
