How many people who reblogged this remember DIAL-UP from 1997?

I remember dial-up from earlier than that…

Lol. 1997 was the first time I had Internet connection (we were poor as shit) I thought it…

Shit, I remember 2400 baud modems.

I was lucky, we had a computer prett yearly. (My mom’s second husband, while a complete d-bag in all other respects, at least was a tech geek) and I had my own computer with a home-made DOS-based GUI by middle school… (um… 1987, or so?) I used to use that to dial into Prodigy (pre-internet, we had the INTRANETS!) so I could email my grand-uncle in Kansas.

I’m ashamed to say, I was not as up-to-date tech savvy back then to understand all that, but that is AWESOME (I don’t fee so old now)! I was born in Detroit, but moved to Australia in 1991, which was when we got that DOS-prompt computer. There’s a name for them, but I can’t remember what it was.

In December 1996, I met my current fiance in a REALLY old chat room. That’s going on like…17 years now. So that year and first Internet computer means a lot to me. Met my husband-to-be, and met some of the closest best friends I still have today (some of which who have sadly left this world but still watch over me) so that computer and first taste of the “online realm” still hold very special memories for me. :) Though, I will NEVER miss Dial-up. Lol.

"…Just send lots of books to prisons, will you? Just, just do it. Any books to be read, anything… Send books, because it’s not a bleeding heart that would have the argument to say, "You know, you gotta feel for these guys." It’s not even that. It’s actually just… It’s self preservation for our culture and our society to understand that you have to, have to, have to believe in education. You have to believe in performing, you have to believe in people’s ability to get better, to heal, to transform themselves in some way, however small a shift, if for the simple reason… [that] it makes sense economically. It is more costly to put people away in overpopulated prisons. There is not the space for prisoners any more. If you want a healthier society or less criminality, then help the criminal to achieve that by understanding that, what, just sending them away and asking them to stare at a wall and think about that they’ve done for fifteen years, because that ain’t gonna do nothing other than breed resentment, or train them or will people to, you know, come out and commit more crime…

"It makes no sense—in the sort of brash accent, nonsense—it makes absolutely no sense, let alone having any kind of feeling about what art can do and what people are capable of. And that’s the secondary argument of mine, is that, you know, I think everyone to a degree deserves a second chance. And I’m generalising here, but I mean they at least deserve to be able to read in prison. I think it’s a basic, fundamental human right, and I just… If good things can come from that, then what is the bad? How is it punishment? It’s punishing society, it’s not punishing that individual. It’s not gonna make them repent what they’ve done and feel worse off because of their crime and now that they’re being punished. It’s only gonna punish us, only comes back on us as a law-abiding society, and that’s the short-sightedness of an attitude like that. That’s what makes me angry about it."

I was here during this plead. For personal reasons, I cried in honor at this. I could not be more proud, and more thankful for hearing this from him live.

I remember dial-up from earlier than that…

Lol. 1997 was the first time I had Internet connection (we were poor as shit) I thought it was the best thing in the world. Then came broadband, and when I had to suffer from dial-up speed for more than an hour, it was like pure TORTURE. 

I just remember being a pre-teen in 1996 and whenever an advertisement would come on with all these advertisements about visiting their web addresses, I would burst into tears because we didn’t even have a computer with Windows. We still had DOS-prompt on a computer we got in 1991. By 1997, I begged my dad to get a Windows computer that would have the Internet and Windows and he finally relented after taking out a loan.

Wow. Memory lane makes me feel old…and somewhat sad.

That last gif would only be my reaction if my fiance was next to me. Otherwise, it would be this:
And if you&#8217;re seeing this,&#8221;Tom&#8221; &#8212;which you probably will knowing your sleuth stalking abilities&#8212; get over it! He is fictional, and Jensen is MARRIED.

spn fandom i am so disappointed on you

why is it so hard to find a decent quality screencap of somebody pointing the colt at somebody else

I quote this all the time.

I feel bad ass when I do, too.

posted 1 day ago

My eldest Godson is turning 10 today. Holy hell do I feel old right now.

Five Random Facts About Me.

1. I was born in Detroit, Michigan.

2. I’ve lived in Australia since I was 5-years-old. (20+ years now)

3. I used to be a clown in the circus and still remember my favorite routine in its entirety.

4. I ran for state government when I was 19.

5. I am easily intimidated, frightened, and desperate not to offend people. Even when I express my opinions openly (as bitchy as some of them may make me sound), I never mean it to sound hateful, and I can burst into tears at anyone every being upset with me. I hate and fear hurting people.

My mom really makes me mad sometimes.
