"When your feet start to bleed - and boy, will they ever - don't panic. The hole that appears to be eating its way into the space between your 4th and 5th toes on your right foot won't go any deeper than a full centimeter (you know this because you stuck your finger inside of it and then measured the extent of the bloody seepage on your pinkie finger… the hole is that wide and deep)."
The internet is not going to take the possible passing of SOPA and PIPA lying down. As a protest, today is the day of the SOPA Blackout, in which many of the sites and services we use every day take a stand--and go black, just as they might be legally forced to do if these bills pass. You know about Wikipedia, sure. But there are lots of other protests going on around the web today (and, apparently, in real life), and some of them are really interesting and creative.
If you're interested in having your voice heard, Ars Technica has a great piece laying out the best ways to protest.
