John Oliver’s message to the Internet Trolls to bombard fcc.gov/comments

Last Week Tonight | 6.1.14 | (x)

Keep it up! We just entered the ‘response’ period to the initial public comment phase. Although, it is technically labeled a response phase, you can still, technically, say whatever you want.

Full brilliant John Oliver segment here.

Dear Star Trek: 
Even though you were a little sexist in your early years, I’m forever grateful for the truths you’ve told us from the get go.

To Watch The World Cup or Not To Watch The World Cup…Why That’s Not A Question

I want to be one of the cool kids - be a part of the unifying distraction that is the World Cup. But after seeing this 30 minute Vice News documentary, I can’t ignore the reality that I’ve participated in, so I’m skipping any further viewing of the games, out of respect for the voice of the people.

The people of Brazil have been relentless in their protests over class warfare, refusing to again succumb to military rule, less than 20 years after being liberated from previous military dictatorship. Brazilian government officials are pushing to categorize protests of any kind as an act of terrorism, punishable by 15 - 30 years in prison. Police are killing their people in the streets and only increase violent force in response to demands for health and freedom.

When Brazil seems to only have a deaf ear for the plight of its people, the least i can do is say ‘I hear you.’

This has got to be the best dick joke i have ever heard

Books are special, books are the way we talk to generations that have not turned up yet. The fact that we can actually, essentially communicate with the people in ancient Egypt, people in Rome and Greece, people in ancient Britain, people in New York in the 1920s who can communicate to us and change the way we think, and change the things that we believe.
 
I think that books are special. Books are sacred. And I think that when you are selling books, you have to remember that in all the profits and loss, in all of that, you are treading on sacred ground.

I’m just simply baffled by the idea that people can be without shelter in a country, and then be treated as criminals for being without shelter

The ‘overview effect,’ experienced by astronauts orbiting Earth, is a fascinating (and enlightening) thing.

This insightful video is well worth the 20 minutes and includes awesome (yes, awesome) footage of Earth from space.
