This true story needs more exposure

Please consider spending a few minutes reading this and the posts linked within. Large corporations are just as responsible for their actions or the lack thereof, as we are. But most of the time, they don't have to live up to that.  

This is +Jo Anne Thomas and Ryan's story. 
A Sad Story
I am sharing links to a two part story written about +Jo Anne Thomas, a Philadelphia woman who is local to me and well-known here on G+. In this story, you will learn about her epic battle against GlaxoSmithKline that will be of interest to many.

Joanne Thomas disputes Glaxo's claim that her fetus was "non-viable" and disputes the statute of limitations defense used by Glaxo's attorneys. GSK ultimately tried to buy Joanne's silence but she refused.

This is her and Ryan's story.

Please make sure to read up on the app, check the settings and do not forget to test it with a trusted contact until you have all set up so in case of real need, it will help you in the way it should. 

Here are the links to the apps:

GPlus Fixer - making Google+ usable again in your browser

I had completely forgotten just how bad G+ had become, when being used in a browser, until the author released a new version and I had to change a few settings. I still cannot understand the horrible multiple scrolling and click to expand design that the intern UI team of Google+ came up with. 

If you are using Chrome, try it and show +Tomasz Żełudziewicz some love if you like it :) 

here is the post with the changelog for the new version:

Sugar Skull Spoon and mug

Remember this?

My kickstarter goodies arrived today and I really like both cup and spoon!  Everything looks beautiful even though I would have prefered a thicker mug but the spoon is well made and the pattern on the mug is spotless. 

I took a few quick shots of it all because I know some of you love all things skull :)
+Kawthar A +Casey McKinnon +Carolyn Curtis +Skye Delaney +Inea D BV Oh and +Mark Rösel has yours arrived as well?

I figured as much, +Maria Ortiz  :) 
However I think it was mostly chosen for the aesthetic appeal in this case :D

+Mar Mai  :) It was a regular coffee with a pinch of allspice and cardamom 

+Carrie Canup You need to pout at G+ right now! Sigh. I hate that, happens to me all the time as well, +Kyla Myers :(

The story behind a meme - how it affects people who unwittingly end up being ridiculed on the Internet

A lot of us have seen this image below, usually with a text overlay about hipsters. Do not get me wrong I am myself guilty of that. But, what about the people shown in memes, images shared many thousand of times via the Internet? How did that happen? How does is affect their lives? 

This was an eye opener, honestly. Over the last months, I have come to enjoy a lot of was is being shared far less than I used to. I can and still do ridicule certain kinds of behaviour. However now, I sometimes stop and think about how it must feel to end up being someone who is actually hated by many, without anyone knowing you, or understanding what they are seeing because there is always one thing in common; there is no context. We do not know if this was taken and shared with permission, if this has changed the life of someone for the worse. 

What are your thoughts after you have read this?
I moved to New York City, and I needed to make money. I wasn’t having luck getting a job. It's a common tale. My solution was to grab my typewriter that I

In the end, all we can do is promise to love each other with everything we've got. Because love's the best thing we do

Thank you, HIMYM for many years of fun, good, very bad and brilliant episodes. In the end, you did it right.

unlike most other shows: I'm looking at you, BSG, Lost and Dexter

Thanks, Björn you're certainly right about the trouble getting everyone back, however the ratings for this were insane and quite a few things seem to have been shot in advance. Certainly that's good incentive for anyone to come back :)

  • I love anything SciFi and Fantasy related.
  • I will write about things that may be controversial, crazy, funny, not funny, stupid, random, amazing and much more.
  • I enjoy cooking, I will post recipes from time to time


1. So what is your big, shameful secret vice?
My biggest vice is the insane number of books I buy & read. I'm fairly certain that an unnamed international retailer of books, has a picture of me on their wall.

2. You don't post that much do you? 
Yes, that's true. I comment far more often than I post on my own. 

For people that I've added and who are wondering, who I am and what I want: 

If I added you recently...

it was because of one of the following reasons:

  • I have found you to be an awesome, interesting person and I like to learn more about you
  • I found you in one of the many shared circles and we have something in common, most likely a common interest
  • I just did because I could
Probably it was a combination of all of the above. Ff you've added me in the last weeks, feel free to drop me a line. I try to check out all your profiles and if I find something I like, I'll add you back. Though it may take some time. I'm always looking forward to meeting new people so please don't be shy. Comment, engage in whatever way you like.

If you added me recently

Hello there, I'm glad you added me. Please check out my profile to find out about the things I post and comment on. I'm opinionated, I like to argue and I can be very passionate about things that I care for. 

I will check out your profiles in time, if I find something that interests me, I'll add you back. Another great way to learn more about me is to comment on my posts or participate in discussions. *Actually, really try to comment or something, +1 me or whatever* I really would like to get to know you but I find myself weary of looking at empty profiles*
