Incredible work, everyone. These numbers are huge.
How huge? With 10,000 sites participating in yesterday’s net neutrality effort, a total of 304,993 calls got made. You made nearly half of them. Bravo.
Also…which one of you made that 61 minute call? What’d you guys talk about?

Louisville Metro Police say they’ve arrested a man who terrorized his Hispanic neighbors.
According to an arrest warrant, the trouble started on Aug. 31, on Lipps Lane, off Preston Highway. Police say a Hispanic family was arriving home when they noticed that their neighbor, 51-year-old Douglas Poynter, had painted the words “KKK wants you to burn” on the side of his fence, facing their house.
Poynter also had erected a cross with the word “burn” written underneath it, police say.
According to the arrest warrant, he was still standing in his yard — covered in paint — when the family arrived. When they asked him why he would do this, Poynter allegedly swore at them yelling, “F____ you. F_____ all you immigrants.”
"He started threatening me and said the first chance I get, you’re mine. I’m gonna shoot you. Then he started pointing his shotgun out of the window," said Jesus Alamo.
Police say Poynter then swung his fist at Jesus Alamo, who pushed him back.
The victim’s 9-year-old step-daughter then said she was going to call the police.
Poynter them went inside his home and came out with a shotgun, police say, pointing at the Hispanic father, who was holding his 22-month-old son in his arms at the time, and telling him that he would shoot him the first chance he got, either in the front or the back.
When police arrived a short time later, they allegedly saw that Poynter was drunk.
The next day, on Sept. 1, the family came outside their home and immediately detected the stench of gasoline, according to the warrant, and noticed a puddle of gas on the porch. The father then told his family to go out the patio door, but they allegedly noticed gasoline on a rubber mat outside that door as well. When the family attempted to exit from a laundry room door, they found another puddle of gasoline, according to the warrant.
They decided to call the police.
While they were waiting for officers to arrive, Poynter allegedly walked out of his home with the shotgun and began waving it around, pointing it at the father and saying, “Sooner or later, you’re gonna die. You and your family.”
Police say they arrived a short time later, saw Poynter with the gun and drew their own weapons.
They ultimately advised the victim’s family to file a criminal complaint. According to the warrant, the victim claims to have had trouble with Poynter for several months, including one incident in which Poynter walked into his family’s home without being invited. Police say the man’s children — 12-year-old twins and a 22-month-old — are terrified of Poynter.
An arrest warrant was issued on Sept. 2, and Poynter was arrested later that afternoon. He was charged with criminal trespassing, attempted arson, terroristic threatening, wanton endangerment, harassment and menacing.
In court on Wednesday, Poynter shook his head as court officials described what he’s accused of doing.
By the afternoon, he was released from jail on a $10,000 bond.
Ads: you’re doing it right.
woah i just realized harry lived in a literal closet and his mentor lived in a figurative one
being a cishet looks boring why do people do that
Idk maybe bc sexuality/gender isnt based on how cool or interesting an individual wants to look

bless them for letting baby girl keep her heritage
I peep them braids and that dress
I was just thinking this. She actually takes the children back to visit their family in their home country and they study about their own cultures. She isn’t one of those white people trying to assimilate her non-white children.
She doesn’t use her kids as props and accessories, and she loves and cherishes them all equally it looks like.
Not to mention how she lets John (Shiloh prefers to be called John) dress and act how they like
Also, I’m pretty sure her wedding dress has her kids’ drawings on it, which is just unbelievably adorable.
it does have her kids drawings on it, they also helped to write the vows and Maddox the eldest boy made the cake with his friends, which is probably why he looks so nervous in the picture of them cutting it.
Every single thing I hear about this wedding makes me so happy even though they’re complete strangers to me because it just seems so joyful.
Crying because it’s so perfect
Cutest thing I have ever seen! Best celebrity wedding!
Everything about this wedding just fills me with happiness. It really was about their whole family, not just the two of them.
ladies and gentlemen, the american education system
My school apparently ran out of toilet paper a few weeks ago and my Spanish teacher was telling the girls to keep a roll in their purses and the guys to keep a roll in our backpacks. North American Education system.
this is basically any public school in the world tbh
bet the football teams have new equiptment though
THIS WAS A CHILDRENS MOVIE
A CHILDRENS BIBLE MOVIE
( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) Amen
FUN FACT: in hebrew, “feet” is a euphemism for genitals.
so if you ever see “washing feet” in the bible, it, uh. yeah.
(source is my old bible class textbook which i don’t have on me anymore :( )
HOLY SHIT WHAT
I MEAN CORRECT ME IF IM WRONG BUT I SWEAR TO GOD I REMEMBER READING A STORY IN THE BIBLE WHERE JESUS CLEANED THE ‘FEET’ OF A LADY PROSTITUTE INFRONT OF HIS TWELVE DISCIPLES WHO GOT SERIOUSLY GROSSED OUT. THEM GETTING REALLY SUPER GROSSED OUT BY THAT NEVER MADE SENSE TO ME UNTIL NOW.
JESUS CHRIST JESUS.
THAT HASHTAG I”m—-—
Witnesses say they asked Britney why she shaved her head and her response was, “I’m tired of plugging things into it. I’m tired of people touching me.”
i can never not reblog this
T-Pain: “That was the most beautiful thing in the world. Do you know why she was shaving her head? Because it was so important to other people. She is like, “Listen. Don’t touch my hair anymore. Stop touching my hair.” People were like, “We’ve got to make your hair before you go outside. You can’t leave.” She went … “Now I don’t have hair. What you going to do?”
The older I get the more her breakdown seems less ‘unbalanced’ and more ‘completely understandable’
I think the best part of being a woman is the sexual security that we have. I mean like even a straight woman could know that she’s not interested in women, but she can still sit on another girl’s lap and hold her hand and maybe even kiss her if they were that close. If two guys even make eye contact with each other they have to screech “NO HOMO” at the top of their lungs to make sure everybody knows that they are not gay.
