Uncle Sam may start charging you for the right to access the Internet.
Or you might soon find yourself paying a sales tax on purchases made at online retailers like Amazon and eBay.
Depending on whom you ask, the two issues are either completely unrelated or close cousins. The first is a sort of doomsday scenario that would come to pass if a long-standing federal ban on charging a tax for Internet access isn’t renewed by Congress. The second will become reality if an online-sales-tax bill, supported by brick-and-mortar retailers, gets passed as a piggyback measure to the ban.
Before Congress flees Washington later this week to begin its final burst of election-season campaigning, it must address the ban on federal, state, and local taxes on Internet access due to expire on Nov. 1.

Supergirl Series Lands on CBS — Who Would You Cast in the Lead Role?

CBS has given a series commitment to an hour-long drama about Kara Zor-El, the DC Comics heroine who escaped the planet Krypton amid its destruction. Having hid all this time on Earth the powers she shares with “her famous cousin” (as the official logline cheekily puts it), 24-year-old Kara decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and “be the hero she was meant to be.”

When you first join Tumblr it seems like a nice blog site where you can reblog pretty pictures but eventually you find things you’re interested in and start going to that side then you join multiple fandoms and get sucked into the dark abyss of blogging and it takes over your life and slowly kills you while basically forcing you into a worldwide cult

Gentle reminder that Ouran has a pretty much canon nonbinary protagonist.

Gentle reminder that said protaganist’s single parent is a canon bisexual drag queen dadmom

Gentle reminder that there is an entire troupe of singing lesbians in Ouran

Gentle reminder that Ouran is actually the shit

HP Goblet of Fire Headcanon: Beauxbatons was primarily a Muslim wizarding school.

(photo from livesandliesofwizards, which was the first thing I thought of when I ran into this passage while rereading the Harry Potter books)

(and yes I know the horses drink whisky, which is not exactly halal, sshhh)

This is actually a really probable and possible headcanon, and not just because of the highlighted lines. For those of you who don’t know - during the ever-lovely age of Imperialism, when Western Europe invaded other countries for shits and giggles, and the sun never set on the British Empire, France invaded Northern Africa. 

Nowadays, it’s called the Maghreb, and it is comprised of Algeria, Libya, Mauritania, Morocco, Tunisia, and declares French to be an official language. It is an area in which Islam is the official, and most popular religion, and an area from which the majority of France’s immigrant population is drawn. 

While it is entirely likely that the countries of the Maghreb have their own schools, the immense, and growing population of French speaking, Muslim immigrants in from the Maghreb to France drastically increases the likelihood that even an upperclass school such as Beauxbatons would include a portion of students from that demographic. And I think that’s just really cool.

HEADCANON FUCKING ACCEPTED

I thought Olive-skinned meant Mme Maxime was greek when I used to read it, but this is so-much better!
