Last Wednesday, FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler announced a proposal for new rules that would allow for a “ fast lane” of Internet traffic for content providers who are willing (and able) to pay a fee. [1] The proposal reverses the FCC’s previous commitment to net neutrality and open internet and allows ISP’s like Comcast or Verizon to slow down and censor services that don’t pay the toll.

We have to be totally honest, this situation is seriously grim. But there is still hope. The FCC already knows that the Internet community wants net neutrality, but they think they can put their spin on these new rules and sneak them through. If we can prove them wrong right now with a massive public outcry, we can literally save the Internet once again.

We need to stop the FCC now. Big business groups are already ramping up lobbying efforts with the FCC in swarms since Wednesday’s announcement in support of censoring the open Internet and to ensure this dangerous proposal moves forward. [2]

This is a critical moment. In the last few weeks more than 65,000 people have taken action with us. Can you help us get to 80,000 by the end of the day today?

we’re almost 3/4 of the way there!! c’mon guys, every bit counts!

will it ever stop

fucking signal boost

IF YOU ARE NOT SIGNAL BOOSTING THIS YOU ARE NOT PAYING ATTENTION.

IF THE U.S. FALLS TO THIS IT WILL OPEN OTHER DANGEROUS DOORS INTERNATIONALLY.

This is the last time I’ll signal boost this. I have officially done all that I can. Good luck, America.

Fucking hell. Seriously signal boost the fuck out of this. Though, no one will care until it actually happens.

Guys.

Seriously.

This is a lot more important than a lot of other world issues going on in the world right now.

The internet is the last sanctuary there is for the world when it comes to pure, unfiltered freedom.

Do not let these greedy, controlling bastards get their way with this.

It takes less than 30 seconds to do this. please share. I’ve been hearing about this for a while

i don’t usually signal boost stuff but this shit is actually really important. this isn’t some hoax, or an overreaction that’s just gonna blow over in a week. this is very real, and it’s right at our doorstep.

Hi guys! I’m going to explain something about animation which will hopefully change your minds about this picture.

(from The Animator’s Survival Kit by Richard Williams)

In order to effectively convey movement, the animator has to use a line of action for key poses - the most prominent type being a C-curve. To make moves readable, the animator will reverse the C-curve with each pose, and tie each of those together with an S-curve.

Smash Bros is a fast-paced game, so the line of action needs to be very exaggerated to communicate the movement. To do this, some parts of the character need to be broken. The pose in this image is something you’d see for less than a second, so I highly doubt they’re trying to go for eye candy with it.

This part of the Nintendo Direct shows just how fast Samus’s movements are. Each pose is hardly discernible at this speed - even when the camera is zoomed in on Samus, it’s hard to see how broken her anatomy is. However, her moves remain readable.

Another thing to keep in mind is that Samus isn’t the only character that breaks. Every character in Smash Bros has exaggerated movement - some of them even have body parts that grow really big to give punches or kicks extra oomph!

Incredible flexibility as demonstrated by Shiek!

Yoshi is going too fast!

If this were a rendered promotional image like a poster, I’d understand pointing out the flaws in her anatomy. However, this is an in-game screenshot, and saying that it’s wrong to pose her like this is telling the animators to not do their jobs.

THANK YOU

Thank you indeed.

Excellently said.

Makes me feel better but also keeping an eye out for what they use as promotional stills

Thanks for that! Breaking a character’s anatomy for the sake of an exaggerated/quick motion is just one of the tricks animators use to either get the most oomph out of an action or to get something to move in a way it has to. It’s actually covered in the Survival Kit on pages 144, 164 and 199 (not the extended version). However it can’t be TOO extreme or held for too long, or it’s noticeable. It has to be felt but not seen (like a smear)

And there’s the post upgrade to make things better ^^
