The coolest place on the internet, according to this tagline.

The Internet is not broken, and does not need to be fixed. Left-wing extremists have been crying wolf for the past decade about the harm to the Internet if the federal government didn’t regulate it. Not only were they wrong, but the Internet has exploded with innovation. Do not regulate the Internet. The best way to keep it open and free is what has kept it open and free all along—no government intervention.

There’s an organization out there called American Commitment that is preying on stupid people who see things through Amurikkah-tinted glasses by reframing the debate on net neutrality into a “government takeover” of the internet. If you are one of the 2.4 million people who signed this petition, you are among the 2.4 million stupidest people in the country. Just thought I should tell you so you can learn to embrace your stupidity and realize that you’re letting some jackasses paid for by the Koch family feed your brain with mind-numbing bullshit.

May you see the error of your ways and spend a couple of minutes researching the jerks that are brainwashing you. Thanks. — Ernie @ SFB

It’s a very big, epic sci-fi movie. This isn’t a movie with a bunch of lines running around the page. We’re not giving feet to the geometric shapes.
They’re making a movie based on Tetris for some reason. The director is the guy who did Mortal Kombat.

Some schools, such as Princeton and Harvard, have fewer than five veterans in their undergraduate student bodies.
The Ivy League has pretty much been off-limits to vets, though there are a couple nonprofits working on that.

Sesame Street turns 45 years old this year. How have they managed to keep things going so long? They’ve kept focused on their mission, which as it turns out does not involve Cookie Monster eating nothing but cookies.

Don Hertzfeldt’s The Simpsons couch gag is a wonder.

Oh. Oh my.

I agree with this writer for The Verge. Beautiful and brilliant—I would love to see a full episode like this.

I spent the last six months interviewing writers, producers, crew members, and guests who worked on NBC’s groundbreaking “Late Night with David Letterman” in the ’80s. The oral history has been published as an e-book at Amazon Kindle Singles, which you can check out at the link.If you’re into the history of late-night TV and/or a nerd about comedy writers rooms, this is for you.

Today in old-school comedy and gap teeth brethren. If you have gap teeth, don’t go see a dentist—reblog this post instead and embrace your cultural status.

The only, and essential, characteristics of parody are, on the one hand, to evoke an existing work while being noticeably different from it and, on the other, to constitute an expression of humour or mockery.
The European Copyright Directive, taking effect in the U.K. October 1, finally makes it OK for British comedians to parody stuff without having to worry about the risk of a lawsuit from the copyright-holder. Not allowed, though, are parodies that convey “a discriminatory message”—i.e., no racism.
