Indeed!  This should fix his public image!  Honestly, he should have taken a tip from President and used AN ANGER TRANSLATOR.  But wait, he's WHITE and a bigot.  Maybe he could have employed a WHITE SUPREMACIST?

It is truly a miracle!  Three police officers surround a nude, blindfolded, college student and actually don't shoot her!
 
Behind the 3 officers is a fully nude college student, the image was properly edited for G+ viewers.  She sat on the steps for 45 minutes nude, blind folded with headphones.  She could not see hear or interact with anyone passing by. Eventually 3 officers surrounded her.  I am shocked there were only 3, I think they did have backup not visible in this picture..  As far as I know they did not shoot her.

It is interesting.  While I might have exaggerated a bit, look at my posts, I take a very light approach when adding commentary.  In the back of my mind, just like when I talk about blacks getting murdered. 

This was a protest (by me) against out of control & dangerous police, it involved sexuality (not so much gender or race).  It is interesting to me how hell bent people are on into turning this into a racial issue.  When militarization of police is a human issue.  Weird world IMHO.

I'm really starting to hate the BBC now.
 
Top Gear co-presenter Richard Hammond was once told he might be sacked from the show, former executive producer Andy Wilman has claimed.

Please sign. I have been fighting Lyme Disease for 15 years. I've all but given up on actually beating it and I am content to merely minimize its negative effects upon my life.
Tell Congress: Increase research funding to prevent and stop the spread of Lyme disease.

We have self-driving cars, so why not self-flying drone cameras.  AND IT IS WATERPROOF???  Truly a product ahead of its time.

I suppose I should open by admitting I'm not right in the head.  Now that's resolved, let me be clear, we are not at war with all Muslim men, but if we WERE, this would be a brilliant way to weed them out, not to mention, an excellent opportunity to pull out my lawn chair.
 
The following image is G+ safe.
"As you might already know, it is a sin for a Muslim male to see any woman other than his wife naked and if he does, he must commit suicide."
"So at 7:00 am & 7:00 pm each day this week, all American women are asked to walk out of their house completely naked to help weed out any neighborhood terrorists.
Circling your block for one hour is recommended for this anti-terrorist effort. All patriotic men are to position themselves in lawn chairs in front of their houses to demonstrate their support for the women and to prove that they are not Muslim terrorist sympathizers.
Since Islam also does not approve of alcohol, a cold 6-pack at your side is further proof of your patriotism.
The American government appreciates your efforts to root out terrorists and applauds your participation in this anti-terrorist activity."
P.S.
If you don't share this, you're just not right in the head!

I can see a problem employing this product, and still, it has its appeal.
Skip the Peeps, I'll take the sex toy. He is risen! This Easter season wrap your palms around a chocolate sex toy made by, who else, but the French. Dorcel Store is a retailer of all things sex, and was founded by the French porn producer Marc Dorcel, so why shouldn't they celebrate the religious …

A similar argument was employed by the very last President Bush to invade Iraq.  Can we invade Florida now to free them from such oppressive nonsense?

You don't even have to stab the battery with a knife.  Simply dropping an iPhone onto a hard surface can have the same effect although it may be delayed by hours, days or weeks, like a ticking time bomb. I've been cautioning my friends for the past few years about this, but sadly it rarely motivates them to buy a drop-resistant case or use more care with the minority of smartphones using this most dangerous variety of lithium battery.

This is one reason to use a phone with a removable battery.  When the batteries are looking a bit swolen?  Time to toss them and replace them with fresh, not slowly exploding batteries.

Story
Tagline
It wanted a "Brief" description, so I entered, "Hanes".
Introduction
I live outside Washington DC in Potomac MD.  I own the house I grew up in, inherited from my parents a few years ago.

In addition to G+, I have accounts on several sites including, but not limited, to LJ (LiveJournal) and Facebook.

I'm not certain that I will like G+, but after an entire thread was unceremoniously yanked out of my Facebook without recourse to appeal, I've decided that Facebook is not a responsible choice for intelligent people with anything useful to say.
Work
Occupation
I write, blog, fix computers, rescue data, teach people how to use Linux, invent stuff. I do what I can.
Skills
My skills are my occupation. My occupation reflects my skills. I enjoy both. It is wisely written that if you enjoy your work, you'll never work a day in your life, but either I disagree somewhat, or I'm not quoting it properly.
Employment
  • Lyme Disease
    Consultant Extraordinaire, 2001 - present
    Let me be clear, it is nearly impossible to be consistently employed while having Lyme, unless you have a very special employer who appreciates what you do so much that you are rewarded for what you do well, when you are able to do it. I am, in a sense, my own employer. My sense of satisfaction comes from knowing I'm helping those I consider worthy, even if I might not know them very well. Environmentalists, as well as other community minded people receive extra attention. For nearly the entirety of this time I've maintained the policy that I charge no fee but ask only to be reimbursed actual expenses. In other words, If I don't love you enough to do it for free, I won't do it at all.
  • me, myself and i
    owner, 1989 - 2001
    For more than a decade I extended my lifelong hobby of taking on the toughest repairs with an all or nothing approach. I especially liked proving that supposedly non-repairable equipment could not only be made to work, cost-effectively, but often better and longer lasting than before. I accumulated quite a following, and while I never made a great deal of money at it, I accumulated a large following, many of whom continue to express interest in my projects.
