1. All governments are corrupt so they automatically suck.
2. SOPA. Do you know about the Stop Online Piracy Act? If you had a research paper due last January 19 like I did, you most probably do!
I had a busy week last week so I only had time to do our research paper last Wednesday. The research paper was supposed to be a group thing, but since we all know "group work" means "I do the group's work," I did the group's work.
I asked my group mates to do this part of Chapter 1 and research this and that for Chapter 2 and not to just copy-paste whole paragraphs from shady sites. But as expected, they did just that. So that leaves me to do the actual research from said shady sites. The only comfort I had was knowing that Wikipedia would have all the answers I needed. So research I did!
|le me, doing research.|
I knew a few days before that Wikipedia was having a black-out on the 18th, but due to stress and sleep-deprivation, I forgot. So imagine my annoyance when I clicked on the Wikipedia link and got redirected to this:
|YES, WIKIPEDIA. WE SEE YOUR POINT. A WORLD WITHOUT YOU IS NO WORLD. JUST LET ME DO MY RESEARCH IN PEACE DAMNIT.|
In my head, I was all: "Oh, fuck you, Wikipedia. You're just a useless pile of pixels that makes everyone's internet connection slower." Then after a while, I felt bad for what I said and apologized to Wiki and decided to blame the US government (and our research teacher) instead for my suffering.
PS: Guess what time I woke up the next day? I DIDN'T! 'Cause I didn't go to sleep and ended up falling asleep in all my classes.
Lesson for the day: When all else fails, just go to bed.
