Comically Awesome

After I read this comic at smbc-comics.com (You may remember them, I've included a few before) I just had to share it with you guys.


Zach Wiener is part of my ever expanding pantheon of Gods. 

The votey is awesome too, but I can't upload it, but it says "New law - Congress aren't allowed to vote. How do we know they won't vote for child porn?"

Also because it IS video day, here's a video that fits in with this comic. It's the message by Anonymous to the Governments of the world. Let's not forget Anonymous is a global thing. Plus the more times I say Anonymous in a post the more my page views go up because the FBI lurk.

    We gotta keep fighting to keep the wild, wild internet frontier free for everyone.

    1. It is the truth but the truth is also that there are people fighting it.

  4. Augh, in the Anonymous video "Libya" was spelled wrong...

    In any case, the comic puts into perspective just how ridiculous controlling the internet is.

    1. I would ask how you would you point that out, but had I noticed I probably would have too lol. Controlling the internet is stupid, but the people who are trying to do it are stupid.

  7. As usual, couldn't agree less. Taking something from the internet to the "real" world just proves how silly everything is.

    1. It is dude, but "couldn't agree less" makes it sound like you don't agree at all :P

  8. Maaaaaaarrrrk!!!!!!! I've missed being able to read your posts :P hehe I'm back now but not for long. Still no internet.

    I like the picture it made a lot of sense to me which I was surprised at because those things normally leave me going "wah?".

    Aaand I couldn't watch the video due to crappy internet here. So sorry I can't leave a very productive comment, but, let's face it, do I ever leave any productive comments? :P I'm sure they do make you smile though (^^,) so for that reason I will carry on.

    Luuuurrve you :P

    1. You leave productive comments, even if you don't realise it. Most comments are at least slightly productive.

    2. Do I not get a "luuuuurve you too" at least? *sniff*

    3. We've talked about that before, and anyway you don't need my love for validation.

  10. "People are citizens while on the internet too"

    I can`t agree more. But the good thing is SOPA is dead. PIPA, you`re next! :)

    1. They'll all come back. Right now the biggest worries are ACTA and C-11 in Canadia.

  11. I was always dubious about how affective the Anonymous movement actually was, but I'm beginning to change my opinion. The whole Arab Spring movement last year is testament to that method of thinking, and it works. Seems that after the chaos that came out of the fall of communism in Europe, people got lazy - now they're waking up again.

    1. Despite how Anonymous got started, and some of the actions they do, overall they are something we need. They are both sides of the chaos and order spectrum.

  12. Anonymous fighting for our rights, thanks~!

  13. Pretty sly way to drive up traffic. You've got a great mind for politics, you ever thuoght of running for orifice?

    1. I don't have that good a mind for politics. I'm happy to be what I am, but I don't think I could actually be a politician. I can't play their games. Plus I don't know if I would be able to get what I want. It's why I have slight issues with Ron Paul. I love what he says, and most of what he wants, but I don't know how achievable it is.

    2. Truly spoken, friend. The same conundrum befitted itself upon me when Ralph Nader

  14. Every time you've mentioned Anonymous in an article you've kinda touched on something that I wanted to comment on but I kept backing off, assuming you knew. But, just in case you don't, I'll just say it now.

    I think you have the wrong idea about what 'Anonymous' is. You keep talking about it like its a finite group of people. That's completely wrong.

    Anonymous is You. When you want to be.

    You and I have blogs, sort of like virtual houses with addresses where people can find us, yeah? But that link doesn't stick to all your online activity. When you want to, you can don the Mask and become anonymous, too.

    Maybe it's just a small failure of communication and you already have the right idea, but I just wanted to make sure that you weren't slipping under the impression that Anonymous is some kind of underground group that's fighting for your rights and that you are just a supporter, cheering them on from the sidelines.

    YOU can be Anonymous, fighting for OUR rights.

    Anonymous isn't exclusive. It isn't hierarchical. It isn't centralized.

    It is us. If you want to be.

    1. Nah dude I did know that. I have donned the mask in the past. Sometimes they move too fast for me to keep up though. Everyone and anyone is Anonymous. It's not that you can be, it's that you ARE. Sometimes I just accept my role as a supporter, but when I can, I will happily join and fight the good fight. But you have cleared that up for anyone else who reads here too, and don't worry next week I am encouraging activity. I guess actively encouraging just wasn't a step I was prepared to take yet. But I'm encouraging peaceful protests, not hacktivism. I don't have a problem with how Anonymous does their work mind.

    1. I think that now people are fighting, it's not expending as much.

  16. So Sad So True, hope my post does not get tampered with because it is so similar in content to others that have come before.

  18. That was brilliant! I don't know what they'd make out of my browsing history. I look at flower bulbs and flower seeds and pictures of Bruce Willis online. Those silly FBI men in their silly hats and silly coats. I know about mentioning Anonymous too. It got me an instant 348 hits one morning. I felt like the US government was working for me on that day!

    1. It is one way to get hits I'll give you that. Why pay for advertising when you can just keep mentioning the terrorists? Hey that might get me a view or two!

  19. scarey stuff, and an invasion of privacy.

  20. The way the internet works if there is a blockage an alternate route is found....The more they put stupid laws in the way the more we'll find ways around them.

    1. There is that too. It just further punishes the innocent.

  27. All these laws are just clever Frank Luntz like word play to try to trick the citizens into coughing up their freedoms, before we start demanding our fair share of the loot. They want to shut us up before they end up like Mubarak and Quadaffi.
