Interesting, especially in light of the kinds of discussions and arguments which typically take place here on tumblr.

It has been a year since the internet’s demise… meg stands on the ashes of civilization.
It has been a year since the internet’s demise… emily is now a master thief.
It has been a year since the internet’s demise… Mirelha has no reason to wake up now.
This is so true! XD
It has been a year since the internet’s demise… Luna sings songs of their internet days.
Wait, What?! O_o
Hey, I got some pretty weird results later on too.
When I typed up my real name, it said I’d become prime minister and when I typed in my nickname, it said I’d start a cult.
So I’m actually a neurasthenic prime minister who started a cult after the internet got shut down. And you, of course, are granddruidess and “penn-barzh” of this internet-related cult. Sing on, Luna… XD
It has been a year since the internet’s demise… uncdan is now truly foreveralone.
It has been a year since the internet’s demise… Daniel has given up on everything.
I want to denounce in the strongest possible manner the entire process that led to the signature of this agreement: no inclusion of civil society organisations, a lack of transparency from the start of the negotiations, repeated postponing of the signature of the text without an explanation being ever given, exclusion of the EU Parliament’s demands that were expressed on several occasions in our assembly.
As rapporteur of this text, I have faced never-before-seen manoeuvres from the right wing of this Parliament to impose a rushed calendar before public opinion could be alerted, thus depriving the Parliament of its right to expression and of the tools at its disposal to convey citizens’ legitimate demands.
Everyone knows the ACTA agreement is problematic, whether it is its impact on civil liberties, the way it makes Internet access providers liable, its consequences on generic drugs manufacturing, or how little protection it gives to our geographical indications.
This agreement might have major consequences on citizens’ lives, and still, everything is being done to prevent the European Parliament from having its say in this matter. That is why today, as I release this report for which I was in charge, I want to send a strong signal and alert the public opinion about this unacceptable situation. I will not take part in this masquerade.
This is one of the draft blackout screens for Wikipedia’s planned outage tomorrow in protest of the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and its Senate twin, the Protect IP Act (PIPA). But the biggest fights of the SOPA/PIPA war are already over, and the entertainment industry seems to have lost. Siddhartha Mahanta and Nick Baumann explain how Reddit, Wikipedia, and BoingBoing took on one of Washington’s most powerful lobbies—and won.
Clothing fashions worn by technology-obsessed internet junkies are now trickling down into closets across America.
At the recent Geek 2 Chic fashion show in the US state of Maryland, Microsoft and Bloomingdale’s department store took two dozen internet entrepreneurs and asked them to walk the catwalk.

You know, given the evidence…
I think girls with pretty pictures get a lot of asks. Well, it’s similar to being hit on, but since it’s the Internet it’s probably a lot more because it’s made so easy.
Even if it’s much more ridiculous.
Otherwise, people who get asks seem to be people who specialize in a certain area, and also post controversial things. Nothing like hate brings people together.
But barring something viral, pretty girls get a lot of attention. As in life, so on the Internet, but multiplied.
Flow chart of how to argue angrily on the Internet.
It’s a formula for forum flame wars, YouTube comment wars, and everything else.
You too Tumblr, no one is innocent.
Not just the Internet, but also online gaming.
Interesting to watch and read.
I have to say, Asian online games are far more intensive and grind-y than Western ones.
For all of you newcomers to the cesspit that is the Internet:
Rule 34: if it exists, there will be porn of it.
