Are these your videos or someone else's?
Are you looking at them in YouTube or Google Plus? I don't know much about YouTube.
You need to be logged into your Google account to be able to comment on videos.
And the account needs to be linked to Google+. So if you are logged in as John Smith and you decided to delete John Smith Google+ profile, then you can not comment.

What kind of jobs will we do in the future?
The short answer is that we don't know. 
65% of jobs in America today are information jobs. These information jobs didn't exist 25 years ago, let alone a hundred years ago. We're constantly creating and inventing new jobs and things to do.
Lately, media around the web has been bracing for robots — not time-traveling robots per se, but robot workers. Specifically, the increased sophistication of artificial intelligence and improved engineering of robotics has spurred... read more

Easy access to notifications settings
This is desktop view. Do not know if it is availablle in App yet.
Thanks +Peggy K +Luiz Fernando 
Control which notifications you see under the bell icon - Google+, YouTube, or Google Photos

Three easy steps to select which notifications you want to see - the settings apply everywhere.

1. Click the bell icon
2. Click the gear on the upper left
3. Select which products you would like to see notifications for

Note: if you un-check any of those boxes, you will loose those notifications, and you won't see them listed under "previously read".

Disabling notifications under the bell should not change your email notification settings.

(h/t +Luiz Fernando for spotting this!)

Well.... Now you can manage your poll votes.
I find it a useless feature but someone must have been concerned about it to add a way to find your past votes. (probably desktop only)

But be aware that you won't be able to comment on YouTube videos, review apps, review restaurants and any other thing that requires identification.
Also if you have an YouTube channel, make sure the Google profile you are about to delete is not linked to it.

Mail by missile
Crazy ideas. Glad this one didn't go to far :)
Drone deliveries seem a little less crazy. Just a little.
via +Brad Acker 
Today in History: U.S. Missile Mail Experiment Performed, 1959
On June 8, 1959 — 56 years ago today — the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) and the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) collaborated in the first substantial experiment to carry mail by missiles in the United States. The Navy diesel-powered submarine U.S.S. Barbero, off the coast of Florida, launched a Regulus I missile containing about 3,000 letters to a U.S. Navy facility at Mayport, Florida, about 100 miles away.

While such mail attempts had been tried before by other individuals in other countries, and even in the United States, never before had the U.S. Postmaster General worked closely with the DOD to coordinate such an experiment involving so many pieces of mail. The DOD probably agreed to cooperate with the USPS, because it was interested in demonstrating the accuracy of its intercontinental ballistic missiles (to be used to deliver nuclear warheads in the event of a nuclear war). Postmaster General Arthur Summerfield, a visionary entrepreneur, saw missile mail as a way to demonstrate the peaceful uses of missile technology and to eventually improve the efficiency of USPS operations. The big obstacle, of course, was that missile mail was just too expensive, as the Regulus I missile was about $2 million (in today’s inflation adjusted dollars), and reusability was not considered an option at the time. In fact, no other experiments of missile mail were attempted by the USPS after this June 8 experiment.

With the changing of presidential administrations in 1961, as President Kennedy replaced President Eisenhower, a new postmaster general was named. Kennedy’s postmaster general, J. Edward Day, canceled the missile mail program in his effort to reduce postal service costs.
