Taylor is a happy birthday boy, but was initially confused by the amazon environmentally friendly packaging into thinking that his grandparents had re-gifted him a used nerf gun.

I'm proof that with hard work you can pull yourself up by your bootstraps, even if your dad's a Cardiologist and you grew up on the rough side of Moraga, CA.

I watched a video I think by Konnisegg a few years ago in the nevada desert, where they ran trials of a gattling gun, mounted on a Chevy. The results decimated the target, an old car was torn apart by the ammunition used. #ThoughtProvoking as a means to an end.

Ingress agents unlock a message at an ancient site.
 
few days ago the world biggest glyph suddenly appeared all across Egypt painting the word “ Begin “

https://plus.google.com/109316465388900782597/posts/LyHuLf7qZzw 

the message was obvious ,  driven by the ingress resistance spirit, 
We the Egyptian resistance decided to raise the old Egyptian ancient

Sounding The call of duty, Agents from all around Egypt in a mission to fully power the ancient monuments.

heading to the oldest portal in history “ The Pyramid of Cheops (Khufu) “ a 5000 years old portal , standing there between the great structures powering up the portal felt like +Hank Johnson  in Congo , With each resonator deployed we felt the sand smoothly shaking under our feet.
and suddenly we felt a waves  of XM, Like no other Dark XM.
this is was the first time we encounter it and if +Devra Bogdanovich  is right we all have been exposed and we are at unknown risk no idea how lethal is the dark xm , our scanners kept flashing while the chaotic matter was fading , maybe our scanners can’t handle it and need to be upgraded to understand it ?!  then slowly appearing, The Pharaohs Glyphs shaped on the ground like on a message that clearly says (Save - Mind - Future).

And with Each step we make with Each L8 powered up, With each Link made the thickness of the XM get higher and the feeling gets deeper.

what did we trigger by capturing the world’s oldest portal ? is it connected to the glyph that showed up few days ago “ Begin “ ? 

we have to find out , the investigation must be carried on not just for the sake of curiosity this time our lives depends on it after being exposed to the dark xm we must find the truth 

Sitrep Video : The Pharaoh Glyph and oldest level 8 portal Op. By Ingress Resistance Egypt

this operation is specially dedicated to all agents in Philippines stay strong we are thinking about you

as always thanks to all Egypt resistance team i’m always proud to serve with you guys

Awesome innovation and leadership from a local American company. 21st century energy or bust.
 
Incredibly inspiring. So worth 20 minutes of your time. I've already ordered mine. Elon has the amazing ability to make things happen. He doesn't just dream, he executes and delivers against his ideas. That's inspiring.

I've watched a lot of handsomely paid CEOs get on stages for keynote presentations over the past decade, and none were as good as the one I saw Elon Musk give Thursday night in California as he...

A man can take certain indignities, but disconnecting his large stereo speaker to make room for a bookshelf isn't one of them.

Bookshelf? Is that where you put all the hard drives once they get filled up with the books you've downloaded?

#3. Get healthy by playing #Ingress.
It turns out the very same force that is turning us into pudgy couch potatoes is also being harnessed to make us get off our asses.

Symmetrical cereal stacking. Just like the Philadelphia mass turbulence of 1947. Kids or ghosts?

Nothing unusual there.  When my wife thinks that the top of the stove is a logical place to store cereal boxes, they have a tendency to rearrange themselves into a vertical stack of boxes balanced on top of the cooker hood...

The ER on Cinco de Mayo is a fiesta. Thanks, grandma Badger, for giving the twins a slingshot for their birthday. Handle side should face toward the target.
