To mostly everyone who made gifs of Jennifer Lawrence’s acceptance speech:
It’s spelled ‘independent’.
The Pirate Bay — one of the Internet’s premier destinations for infringing copyrights — is really mad that someone set up a copycat. So mad that they sued them for violating their copyright.

Here’s another little (tech support) gem from yours truly
I know that technology has come a long way. I remember the days when I’d call tech support and the representative would think that I was my own mother. Thankfully my voice and knowledge have deepened, and now I can share with you a few little tricks I use whenever I need to call someone to get shit fixed.
My point is, even though technology is far better than it was in those days, the whole voice-command phone tech support is complete bullshit. Not only that, it’s really demeaning. It’s like they’re saying “you’re not important enough to talk to an actual human so listen to this computer so you can become more frustrated.”
There’s no denying that, even if you have to wait five minutes, you’ll get a solution to your problem faster by talking to a tech support agent than by listening to a computer telling you to try what you’ve already tried.
Because most tech support by phone systems are voice-command, all you have to do is say the magic word (and I’ve already said it): AGENT.
COMPLETELY IGNORE all the other options, even if one of them is “I’d like to speak to a representative.” Know why? Because you’ll get trapped in an infinite loop of discouraging comments and “help” speeches. They really don’t want you to trouble them.
Just say agent over and over again until you hear a dial tone, don’t even answer yes or no. It really works, trust me. Nobody wants to go through the maze that is computerized phone tech support.
And if that doesn’t work, here’s a fool-proof trick: say random, unintelligible crap. I’m serious, the program is designed so that if it can’t understand what you’re saying, it will immediately transfer you to a representative.
It is my sincerest hope that none of you will ever have to use these tricks (because, really — who wants to suffer no Internet connection?) but it is inevitable that some of you will. Have fun.

I only use a watermark when it doesn’t take away from the overall image, but people will repost them anyway.
I think my most popular post is the “I got a jar of dirt!” (over 300k notes) but it isn’t even mine, some perfidious rotter stole it.
