This thing happened on a NYC subway, and somebody has compiled the cel phone videos that were posted.

Karma, she is a bitch.

Good news! After everybody was so disappointed that NASA was holding up the release of Apogee of Fear, Richard Garriott's eight-minute science fiction movie filmed aboard the International Space Station, the agency appears to have had a change of heart. The other day, a NASA spokesperson told Wired:

Oh, nice. I will need to poke at this a bunch. 
 
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.

If you have migraines or chronic pain, check this out. 
 
Shareable post!

In 14 Days playtests, some players had trouble creating believable characters. Players were either falling back on stereotypes or defaulting to playing themselves.

To address this, I'd like to design a number of pre-made character cards. I'm looking for people who experience migraines or chronic pain to lend their voices to the game. If you're interested, I'd love your input in this survey!

Please reshare as you see fit, and let me know if you have any questions.

I think what a lot of commenters on this article are missing, is the big difference that exists between changing to healthy eating habits as an overall lifestyle goal, and changing to specific, proscribed eating habits as a diet to lose as much weight as possible. 

If you are dieting you're  hemming your eating habits around with strict rules and guidelines that must be followed or you've 'failed'. Weight will come off, but you're forcing your body to significantly change its physiology withing a structured framework.  If at any point in the future you take that framework away, the body's going to try and revert. 

With just eating healthier, without putting in timelines or weight goals or strict rules and making the eating healthy the goal, rather than my body will do this the goal,  then you ease some of the problems mentioned in this article.

Your body still does have an adjustment period to the new types of calories it is being given, and there's still the personal adjustment to chosing healthy foods when eating out or grocery shopping, but it isn't a success/failure scenario. 

And, if weight does come off, it comes off at its own rate, in its own time, and not as a part of a forced process. 

Of course, there's always the dorks in comments who are all "I did it, therefore science is wrong!" 
For centuries, men and women have worked tireless to fit the physical molds of their time. There's a reason they always fail.

Imma post this link first, so it gets priority: http://www.savethechildren.org/site/c.8rKLIXMGIpI4E/b.8585863/k.9F31/State_of_the_Worlds_Mothers.htm

OK, now that we've done that- look at this lovely little slideshow from CNN: http://www.cnn.com/2015/05/04/living/gallery/save-the-childrens-mothers-index/index.html

You know what that slideshow doesn't show? The US statistics. 

The  2015 Mothers’ Index of 179 countries  tracks:
~The lifetime risk of maternal death
~Children’s well-being as measured by their under-5 mortality rate
~Educational status, as measured by children’s expected years of formal schooling
~Economic status, as measured by gross national income per capita
~Political status, measured by women’s participation in national government

The USA dropped to 33rd- after Poland and Croatia.  Women in the United States face a 1 in 1,800 risk of maternal death, the worst odds of any developed country in the world. That puts us at 66th place in maternal mortality.  That means that over 1/3 of the countries on that list are better at keeping new mothers alive than we are. 

In the examination of the 24 richest capitol cities in the world, Washington DC had the worst infant mortality rates, with 7.9 deaths per 1000. That means that for every 1000 children born in DC, approx 8 of them will die.  

And in DC's poor Ward 8, babies are 10 times more likely to die than babies born to families in affluent Ward 3

But that doesn't eaven match up to Cleveland, where a ghastly the IMR is a mind-numbing 14.10 per 1000, or Memphis, where it is 10.7, or Philly, where it is 9.5.  Can you imagine living someplace where a newborn has a 1%+ chance of dying?

Oh, sure, we got 9th place for having a huge GNI, and 16th in amount of education we get, but we ranked 42nd in children's well being...Bosnia has a better under-5 mortality rate than we do. And we got 89th in political status. Women in over HALF the countries have better political clout than US women. 

Overall, when it comes to being a developed nation, we're dead last

NO, this isn't an Onion article. 

What the Actual Frak, Texas?
Texas' GOP governor is sending the Texas State Guard to monitor a military training exercise after right-wing militia alleged it's just a cover for the president's plan to put Texas under martial law.

Y'know what, I'm damn proud to know these guys, and to call them friends.  Seeing them build themselves back up, and seeing the excitement and enthusiasm around the 'office' is a big huge pile of warm fuzzies. I wait impatiently for Obduction, and whatever comes next. 
After more than a decade, the Miller brothers – creators of the wildly popular “Myst” series of computer games – were back together in the studio last week filming for the “spiritual successor” to the trailblazing franchise. Robyn Miller, the younger of the two, stood by as Cyan World employees scrubbed his Civil War-inspired garb with dirt from the yard outside the team’s studio in Mead. He glanced down at his hand.

I have lilacs blooming right now, I might need to try this. 

http://honestcooking.com/make-lilac-sugar/

Edited to add:
All mixed up and resting! My kitchen (and fingers!) smell amazingly lilacy now :) I think I might be more inclined to dust this on a light cookie, or sprinkle it on fresh fruit than use it in tea. The sugary lilacs could probably be used as a garnish somewhere, too. Crepes, maybe? 
Fragrant lilacs are a sure sign of spring. Preserve the blossom for seasons to come in a sugar that is perfect for baking or tea. Inspired by Call Me Cupcake.

Introduction
If you're a Callahanian or a D'ni Nerd, yes, this is that Eleri.

If you're not, Hi! Please introduce yourself. 


Common Conversations:
Birth, Myst, Gaming, Crafty Stuff, Woo, Polyamory, My Family, Dealing With Government Agencies, WTF is up with the Right Wing, Nerdy Geeky Stuff, Bouts of Self Pity, Bouts of Mushy LoveyDovey.

The Sort Of Nonsense Up With Which I Will Not Put: 
Proselytizing about your political/religious/social viewpoint. I don't mind being disagreed with, but if you start claiming the One Right True Way, I will thwap you. 

Nasty comments about people with disabilities. If you are into that shite, GTFO of my Google+

Homophobic or Anti-GLBTQOMGWTFBBQ comments. Just no. 

Personal attacks. Duh. 

"That internet drama in the game industry that's about ethical journalism, no really". Seriously, if you're proGG, you do not want to be around me. 

ZOMG RON PAUL. There will be none of that. 

A tangental note: Discussing libertarian political viewpoints in my posts is probably a Bad Idea. I just fundamentally don't get the mindset. It is so opposite mine, I can't wrap my brain around it. I'm unlikely to get real pissy unless it gets nasty, I'm more likely to just drop the conversation. (The only time I have ever gotten REALLY mad, was when someone elsenet said my disabled daughter should never be allowed to vote because she was a beneficiary of government services.)
