13 Angry Tumblr Users React To The News That Article 13 Passed

Article 13 passed today and Tumblr users have some strong feelings of anger and resentment about it. The basic rundown of Article 13 is that it says online platforms are held accountable for content uploaded by any users that infringes copyright; this includes TV shows, music, movies, videos, and pictures. The implications of that run deep when you look to giant online publishing platforms like Facebook, Tumblr, Instagram, GitHub, and Reddit. If that's still not making sense, check out this helpful Twitter thread here, that explains why Article 13 passing is serving as its own kind of Doomsday event for the state of the Internet, and things to come.

Dude's Wild Story About Losing Virginity on Eurotrip at Night Club Ends In Ridiculously Epic Interruption

Before the backlash ensues about running a good 'ol green text story that may or may (most likely) not be entirely true, just hold your horses and appreciate the creativity evident in this sexually depraved little tale. If the dude's goal was to bring back the kind of glory stories that'd keep his friends entertained long into their older years, than mission accomplished. Can't imagine this is what his dad had in mind for his son when he encouraged him to get out and explore the world though.

amazing beer pipeline in bruges belgium transport thousands of gallons of beer

Now this is a pipeline worth fighting for.

As oil pipelines threaten the drinking water and land of the Native Americans here in the states, pipelines in Belgium are threatening sobriety. The world’s first legal beer pipeline in Bruges, Belgium carries 1,000 gallons, the equivalent of 12,000 bottles, of beer an hour from the brewery to the bottling planet two miles away.

via GIPHY

This is not the first beer pipeline. There was at least one illegal one operating during Prohibition, in which a 6,000-foot hose was found under the streets of Yonkers, NY in 1930.

This perfectly legal pipeline, however, starts at Halve Maan beer brewery, one of the country’s oldest. It opened in 1856, and thanks to a crowdfunded campaign, the brewery was launched into the 21st century with a brand-new beer pipeline.

According to Atlas Obscura, “The 500+ donors received a priceless thank you gift: free beer for life. Today, visitors can glimpse a section of the pipeline through a transparent manhole cover cut into the cobblestone street.”

If you aren't familiar with the historic Brexit vote that's about to take place, here's the gist: British voters will soon decide if they want the United Kingdom to remain in or leave the European Union. It's kind of a big deal, but who cares what humans think, right? The cats have spoken and they are very much against "the British exit".

This is What Thanksgiving Around the World Looks Like

Ahh, Thanksgiving. Turkey, pumpkin pie, stuffing, rampant consumerism...

Thanksgiving as we know it is only celebrated in America, but many other countries have their own unique celebrations which are all meant to give thanks and celebrate the end of the season's harvest. Presumably, they all copied America because they thought our idea was so cool. Here are a few of the more famous festivals.
