Another species to be added to the ever-growing tick-list:

Africa’s Western Black Rhino has been officially declared EXTINCT. Poaching and lack of conservation have led the subspecies of black rhino to extermination, while the Northern White Rhino is ‘teetering on the brink of extinction’.

    Way to go, humanity.

what’s sad is hardly anyone fucking cares or wants to hear about it let alone talk about it

Wow

I don’t understand why extinction is sad or even bad. Isn’t it just natural selection at work?

But it wasn’t a NATURAL selection though…


Natural selection, in an obscenely short definition, is the collective effect of genetic variability, heredity in combination with the external environment, resulting in specific genomes (species) flourishing in a given time/place. 
This extinction was caused by overhunting, mainly for their horns to be used in medicine, and habitat destruction, as well as wastefully harvesting their resources. 
Natural selection and extinction are NOT the same thing. Especially in this case. I think he (tokillthedragon) thinks Natural Selection can be quickly understood in a 10 second google search. And Ramez is right, nothing about that shit is natural.

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.

If you’ve got a website, blog or tumblr, get the code to join the #InternetSlowdown here: https://battleforthenet.com/sept10th

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  

 

wHY DOES THIS HAVE SO FEW NOTES

I’m sure you’ve all seen what’s up with Tumblr, but this is REALLY serious, guys.

Funny thing is, I bet the majority of the people reblogging this are perfectly fine with government regulation of other industries. Why the hypocrisy?

Today’s the day. The day you help save the internet from being ruined.

Ready? 

Yes, you are, and we’re ready to help you.

(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.)
