The new quid pro quo for campus Internet service: RIAA-motivated copyright infringement notices that are backed with university-mandated punishments.

  1. No matter if some one searches for his necessary thing, therefore he/she desires to be available that in detail, therefore that thing is maintained over here.

  2. Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave
    it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed
    the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit
    crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
    LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
