Today’s the day. The day you help save the internet from being ruined.
(Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone could start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)
HEAVY ROTATION ALL WEEKEND
(the more you know)
When you decide to burn a vacation day to make it a five day weekend.
Watch the incredible Youabian Puma in action. Be speechless. Bow before its imperial majesty.
At last November’s LA Auto Show, we caught a glimpse of the mighty Youabian Puma: a 500bhp, V8-powered behemoth of a convertible, longer than a LWB S-Class and wider than an Audi Q7.
It’s fair to say we were transfixed. Agog. Speechless. Rarely, since that heady November day, have we stopped thinking of the Youabian Puma and its inimitable lines.
If you, like us, were hypnotised by that first glimpse of Puma, today is your lucky today. For today, Dr Youabian - a Los Angeles cosmetic surgeon, and owner of the company - has released a promotional video for his extraordinary creation, and it is everything we dared hope. [x]
Thomas Frank: There’s a lot of disillusionment now. My liberal friends included. The phrase that I have heard from more than one person in the last year is they feel like they got played.
Dr. Cornel West: That’s true. That’s exactly right. What I hear is that, “He pimped us.” I heard that a zillion times. “He pimped us, brother West.” That’s another way of saying “we got played.”
