Do you care about equal access to information?
If you cared about Ferguson, then you care about this. Imagine how the situation and awareness about Ferguson might have played out if companies like Comcast could put a stop to the spread of first-hand information like what you might find on twitter or tumblr. Imagine if your information of Ferguson came mostly from American media? How would things be different? If you don’t like that thought, then take a few minutes of your time and sign this.
Don’t start caring about this when it’s too late, when it’s more of an uphill battle. Care about it now. Take a stand now.
OMG!!! I FORGET PEOPLE DON’T KNOW THIS!
Yes, all those aloof, “pure” white statues from Ancient Greece?
They actually looked like this:
Vinzenz Brinkmann, much to the apparent chagrin of Westerners everywhere, used ultraviolet light to reveal the original paint schemes of these statues that the millennia had washed away.
And to underscore the Chromophobia?

Vien, this is an aye-aye. It’s a type of lemur. Yes, they all look like this, this one isn’t a mutant or anything. They have weirdly elongated middle fingers, which help them hook grubs, their main food source, out from holes in wood. They are nocturnal, which explains the eyes. I think they are kind of creepy and kind of cute.
A ‘Ring of Fire’ solar eclipse is a rare phenomenon that occurs when the moon’s orbit is at its apogee: the part of its orbit farthest away from the Earth. Because the moon is so far away, it seems smaller than normal to the human eye. The result is that the moon doesn’t entirely block out our view of the sun, but leaves an “annulus,” or ring of sunlight glowing around it. Hence the term “annular” eclipse rather than a “total” eclipse.

I HAVENT STOPPED LAUGHING AT THIS
“In 2002, having spent more than three years in one residence for the first time in my life, I got called for jury duty. I show up on time, ready to serve. When we get to the voir dire, the lawyer says to me, “I see you’re an astrophysicist. What’s that?” I answer, “Astrophysics is the laws of physics, applied to the universe—the Big Bang, black holes, that sort of thing.” Then he asks, “What do you teach at Princeton?” and I say, “I teach a class on the evaluation of evidence and the relative unreliability of eyewitness testimony.” Five minutes later, I’m on the street.
A few years later, jury duty again. The judge states that the defendant is charged with possession of 1,700 milligrams of cocaine. It was found on his body, he was arrested, and he is now on trial. This time, after the Q&A is over, the judge asks us whether there are any questions we’d like to ask the court, and I say, “Yes, Your Honor. Why did you say he was in possession of 1,700 milligrams of cocaine? That equals 1.7 grams. The ‘thousand’ cancels with the ‘milli-’ and you get 1.7 grams, which is less than the weight of a dime.” Again I’m out on the street.”

This is a good illustration of what’s wrong with the US criminal justice system.
