It's pretty neat how this experiment makes it obvious how much tasks like riding a bicycle depend on subconscious/instinctive processes.

Also, I regard his ability to switch back to a normal bike in only twenty minutes a triumph rather than a failure.

I love pretty much everything about this ad (aside from the fact that it's an ad; I'm pretty neutral on that).

I like that he tries to take back the term "social justice warrior". We have allowed abusive people to use it and  other terms such as "white knight" or even "liberal" derisively, enabling them to mute us and put us on the defensive for standing up for others. Good for him for asking, and what's wrong with that. Indeed, what is wrong is for good people to do nothing because they're afraid someone will make call them names.

I think this is one of my absolute fav images ever made, in part because of the words of Carl Sagan on the picture, but also because of it's implications in the scope of our universe and how it is in essence a window back in time.

As a demonstration, I've reshared this post into my "Google" collection, which I'll be using for Google-related content from now on. This means that if you're specifically interested in on my Google-related content, you could follow only that collection - or if you don't want to see things I post about Google, you could follow me but unfollow the collection, and those posts would get filtered out.
 
Introducing Google+ Collections, a new way to group your posts by topic

Our happiest Google+ users are those who connect with others around shared interests and passions. So we set out to give people a place to express the things they love. Today, we’re announcing Google+ Collections, a new way to group your posts by topic.

Every collection is a focused set of posts on a particular topic, providing an easy way for you to organize all the things you’re into. Each collection can be shared publicly, privately, or with a custom set of people. Once you create your first collection, your profile will display a new tab where other people can find and follow your collections.

Posts in collections you follow will appear in your Home stream, with a link to easily jump right into the collection so you can get to similar content from that author. Collections give you a great way to find more of the stuff you love from the people you follow.

Collections is available on Android and the web, and iOS is coming later. For Android users, make sure to update your Google+ app to get access to Collections.

For inspiration on interesting topics, check out our Featured Collections page here: g.co/collections

Create your collections today and share what you love.

+Martin Krischik​​​​ perhaps consider not reading everything in a harsh literal light, out of context. I think you'll find that the world is bathed in context, and trying to read everything literally is a recipe for sadness.

The shirt is riffing off a common trope of fathers who are controlling over their daughters' dates (e.g. http://m.imdb.com/title/tt0312081/). It is a much more prevalent trope than other gender combinations, hence why the shirt is aimed at that.

Asking to have the shirt made gender neutral partially denies the existence of the prevalent trope and thus weakens the purpose of the shirt existing in the first place.

+Anatole Paine I presume you live and work in places with wifi, so that might not be an important metric any more.
