The European Parliament, who write laws for the European Union, recently approved Articles 11 and 13, which basically mean "all technology platforms must check that anything people share does not violate copyright infringement."

Stuff like...oh, I don't know....screenshots from television shows and movies would become illegal.


If you feel an ominous rumbling deep within your soul, that's because screenshots like those are basically the life-blood of the international community's beloved meme culture!

One Twitter user, @Senficon, explained exactly what the next EU articles do:


Naturally, the internet is ready to fight the new laws.

And what else would the internet do when the EU banned memes? Meme even more, of course.


Many saw the new rule as a pretty silly one that simply got meme-culture caught in its cross hairs.


Perhaps the EU will have second thoughts about banning memes after seeing these...

If not, the internet has a back-up plan!




If this is truly the last batch of memes from the EU, at least they were good ones.


The memes are dead! Long live the memes!

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.
