Net neutrality has almost a 40-year history of driving costs down across almost every other sector of the economy.

We've got about a month before they vote on it. If you've got the free time, try to meet with your Senators and Reps face-to-face. It means a lot more to them when they see real people's faces in addition to a full voicemail.

This is what it's like to buy internet in Portugal, where they have no net neutrality. You buy bundles with access to certain sites and services.
Get your ten gigs of YouTube for $5 a month, but no email or Facebook, and you might not be able to access any of those if you're at a friend's house.

American FSers, take a minute to call your congressional reps/senators and tell them how you feel about net neutrality.
If you don't know how you feel about it, please take a moment to look it up here:

Let's do it. Let's be like whichever of them we get the chance to be, and make sure to share about it here.

Solid. I do know some people who latch onto the whole biblical literalism thing, but most of the religious people I know are willing to acknowledge the Old Testament as mostly metaphorical.
I also take the Bible as the word of God (perfect), but revealed to and written by man (imperfect).

I almost left the house without my backup egg this morning. I would have looked like an idiot.

No, watermelon is more shaped like a mitochondria, not blood cells.

Not looking for a fight here, @yimmye , just wondering: what are some of the contradictions you find between science and religion?
I ask because I am religious, and I don't see those conflicts. Not trying to make you a believer, maybe just show you that religion has room for science.

Are we idiots because we do believe in science, or because we point out Bill Nye's logical fallacies? You can only pick one.

Proscribing my beliefs by your choice (and incorrect) notion of what you think I believe makes you look like a fool.
I'm a Mormon who believes the Earth is billions of years old and that most (if not all) life on Earth has a common ancestor. I don't believe in predestination or in Hell as Dante describes it. I don't believe God makes my choices for me.
At the same time, I do believe in a creator who knows what's going on down here, like an Architect who knows who has moved into his apartment building.
I believe that /most/ of the Old Testament is allegorical, but that doesn't make it any less true.
I'm not a crazed doomsdayer, nor do I believe in the great Richard Dawkins.
Believe it or not, most religious folk are a little more complex than that.
