Okay, not really, but we’re taking the time to add to the list of people who are going on blackout today to raise awareness of the damage that PIPA and SOPA will bring. Sure we’re not big now, but there are others like this that could fall under the crosshairs.
For those not in the know, PIPA (Protect Intellectual Property Act) and SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) are two bills being seriously considered in the United States. Websites which contain or link to copyrighted material, even if posted by a user of the site, can be indefinitely blocked without trial or notice.
Let your elected representatives know that censoring the internet is something you don’t want and won’t support. Tell your friends to do it too. I’m told Congressmen / women listen cause they want to be re-elected.
Pixels Edge wouldn’t survive without a free and uncensored Internet. Your favorite websites wouldn’t exist without it.
So raise your fists to the sky, and let loose your battle cry: Stop PIPA, and Stop SOPA.
Now back to our Daily Random:

Humanity: This is you and your world. It’s video’s like these that give me hope in humankind, and then someone makes an arrow to the knee joke.
Also, big thanks to Ingrimsh for yesterdays find, the Red Army Vodka gift pack. I love alcoholic gift sets, and this one just cranked up my expectations to eleven.
This extraordinary product bundle combines two of Russia’s biggest exports: The vodka and the Kalashnikov. Kalaschnikow Red Army Vodka comes packed in a green wooden ammunition box and in shape of a glass replica of the legendary Russian assault rifle which is filled with 1L of high quality vodka made of finest spirit and crystal clear spring water. The vodka is very smooth with subtle notes of honey and vanilla.
In addition, the box includes a hand-grenade shaped flask filled with fine herbal liqueur and six shot glasses with “Red Army” emblems! On top of that, as an Urban Drinks exclusive, you get four extra cans of 9MM Energy Drink. The cans of this Hungarian energy drink come in shape of bullets! Quality wise, this drink definitely can keep up with the more known products.
Whether you are a gun fanatic or you just are a sucker for extraordinary packaging, you shouldn’t miss out on this great product!
