The Incan stonework is famous for it’s large stones (some over 100 tons) that fit so precisely together that “not even a knife could be inserted between the joints.”
How the Incans were able to transport these massive building blocks and handled is something we don’t quite understand today. What we do know is that the cutting marks on some of the stone blocks are very similar to those found on the pyramidion of the unfinished obelisk in Egypt.

All around the world people have reported visitations from an ethereal intelligence known as harbingers. Dating back to ancient times these beings have appeared to man usually to relay some sort of message. These entities seem to take on different forms over the years and when encountered, are associated with Precognitive Dreams, Sense Of Missing Time, Visual and Auditory Experiences and even Abduction. One of the most famous accounts of such creatures occurred in the sleepy town of Pt. Pleasant, WV where local towns people began to see a shadowy, winged, red eyed figure which came to be known as “The Mothman”. Many associate the appearance of this being with the collapse of the Silver Bridge which happened shortly after sightings started and after the tragedy, the sightings stopped. These things have also been reported before other major tragedies like 9/11, The earthquakes in China and Japan, Hurricane Katrina and various other disasters. Is it just a coincidence that people report encounters with these beings before such events? Or is it, as many believe, a warning of things to come.

-And I’m Emily.
We make “funny videos” on the Internet.
-But soon, we might not be able to.
…net neutrality is in jeopardy. Net Neutrality is the principle that says ISPs can’t discriminate between different types of traffic.
That means that…
…whether you’re a bedroom music producer, a couple on an amateur porn site, or just someone with a start up idea - you get access to the same users as Netflix, Facebook or Amazon. On the Internet, anyone can succeed.
…America’s ISPs wanna set up a pay-for-play system where rich companies pay extra to get to those users first.
If this happens…
…instead of a wonderful playground if innovation that it is now, the Internet will become like cable TV where you can only get stuff that’s been pre-approved by a bunch of old rich guys.
Ten years from now…
…your Internet bill could be a bigger “fustercluck” than your cable bill.
Now, you might be thinking…
…isn’t the government supposed to protect me from fragrant doucheholery like this?
…the former chairman of the FCC (government agency that’s SUPPOSED to protect you) is now the cable industry’s head lobbyist. And another former cable industry lobbyist is now the CURRENT head of the FCC.
…we can’t trust the FCC to make the right decision on their own. That’s why WE need to protect the Internet we love. The chaotic, AWESOME, often quite weird, place where literally everyone’s voice can be heard.
In a few months…
…the FCC will approve this festering soal of proposal unless we speak up. The Internet is one of the few places where human voices speak louder than money. So while that’s still the case, let’s use those voices. Go to DEARFCC.ORG and tell them to protect Net Neutrality. Thanks for doing your part to protect the Internet.
