John Oliver Goes Off On An Epic, Fact-Checked, Mic-Dropping Rant For 13 Minutes That You Need To See

This topic is so boring, I'm not even going to tell you what it's about. John Oliver's epically informative and hilarious analysis will have to do the talking. It's REEAALLY important. Please watch. You'll laugh and learn why the boring is actually quite imperative to us. I'm begging you to stick around to at least 4:02, as it's really important to understanding how they could really make things worse.

Ok folks. This is your moment. Go to the FCC website. And say something. NICELY.


And then, in the spirit of freedom and dingos, you could share this. So people can learn about the most important boring thing ever.

UPDATE -- 2/26/15 -- The FCC just voted on net neutrality rules that would reclassify broadband Internet as a utility. And, what do you know, the son of a gun was approved! Boy howdy yip hip hooray! It's not over yet, though. The cable companies still might sue, and Congress still has to weigh in (and we all know that things can get weird when congress weighs in). If you believe that a free and open Internet is crucial to a strong economy and a democratic future, call your representative or senator today! Probably should have called them yesterday, tbh.

Have you ever woken up one day and wondered if you were destined to do more in your life? Or worried you didn't take that shot at your dream?

FOX's new show "The Big Leap." is here to show you that all you need to take that second chance is the confidence to do so.

Watch as a group of diverse underdogs from all different walks of life try to change their lives by auditioning for a reality TV dance show, finding themselves on an emotional journey when suddenly thrust into the spotlight. And they're not letting the fact that they don't have the traditional dancer body type, age, or background hold them back.

Unfortunately, far too many people lack this kind of confidence. That's why FOX is partnering with the Movemeant Foundation, an organization whose whole mission is to teach women and girls that fitness and physical movement is essential to helping them develop self-confidence, resilience, and commitment with communities of like-minded girls.

Kids can innovate, create, and imagine in ways that are fresh and inspiring — when we "allow" them to do so, anyway. Despite the tendency for parents to freak out because their kids are spending more and more time with technology in schools, and the tendency for schools themselves to set extremely restrictive limits on the usage of such technology, there's a solid argument for letting them be free to imagine and then make it happen.

It's not a stretch to say the kids in this video are on the cutting edge. Some of the results he talks about in the video at the bottom are quite impressive.
