Good job to the social media expert for +Bicycle Storage Ideas. I shared a post yesterday about buying a bike, and they followed me the next day. I have room in my garage, so I don't really need storage help, but still a good tactic.

I bought this bike at Goodwill today for only $65! I've been looking at similar bikes in the $3-400 range, but didn't want to spend that much. I haven't owned a bike in years, but I remember that you are much more likely to ride if you have a nicer bike. Cheapo bikes are heavy, uncomfortable, and not fun to ride. Rode it around the block a few times and it's nice. A little uncomfortable on my hands and butt, which probably has more to do with not riding in a long time and being overweight, than with the bike. A few gears wouldn't shift right, just clicking instead of shifting, but a tune up and some grease should fix it. Not sure if I'll get it professionally done, or figure it out myself.

Over the course of 2 years and with 2 different bikes, they were stolen, so it's a good thing you bought them used and you're not brand conscious (Trek, Cannondale, Specialized, Giant, etc.); although I miss my bikes, they were bought from your regular big box retail stores so the pain of losing them is not as great; 👍🚴 happy & safe trips & ridi

While still in early testing stage, it looks quite promising as a potential medicine to help with Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. Hopefully it pans out.
A drug that breaks up different types of brain plaque shows promising results in animals and could prevent Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease

Just got Android 5.1.1, which supposedly fixes stage fright vulnerabilities. I have less vulnerable than before, but still not 100%. Is this app full of it or am I still vulnerable?

If you haven't read the book, don't watch this trailer. It spoils quite a bit. It looks pretty accurate to the book, from what's shown at least. I'm really excited to watch it! Loved the book. If you like reading and science stuff, you should read the book. If you prefer movies, just watch it when it comes out.

I've owned a Kindle copy of the Martian for a little while now, but never got around to reading it. A few days ago, I became aware of the fact that many Kindle books can be upgraded to audio books for a nominal fee (Amazon bought Audible). Since I have a 45-60 minute round trip commute everyday, I thought I'd try listening to audio books instead of flipping through radio stations to find a good song. I'm really loving it! Both The Martian specifically, and listening to books in general. I see many more audio books in my future, which when listened to while driving, gives me an excuse to "read" a good book, without feeling guilty about all the other things I should be doing. It also minimizes one of the most annoting oarts of my day. Not sure why I didn't do this earlier.Anyone have any good hard sci-fi audio books they recommend?

What if your vote did matter? What if the majority middle of society was represented in government?

Wow! That's a huge change! Google has been slimmed down, and +Sundar Pichai​ is now the CEO. +Larry Page​ and +Sergey Brin​ will be running a new company called Alphabet, which owns Google as a wholly owned subsidiary, and all of the other random aspects of Google, as various other wholly owned subsidiaries.

Story
Tagline
Nerdy freethinking dad.
Introduction
I'm just like this guy, you know? I'm a geek/nerd. I like technology, computers, smart phones, and video games. I'm happily married to a wonderful, beautiful woman. I have two kids, my daughter is nine, and my son is seven. I love spending time with my family; they are my everything.

I'm currently spreading my time between family, work, school (working on my BS CS software emphasis), video games, and technology/gadgets. If you see me looking down, I'm probably fossil hunting. You can expect me to post things about those topics. I personally use Chrome OS, Android, and Windows, but I also work with Linux and Unix. You can expect me to talk about those things as well.

I'm hopelessly optimistic about the future and the positive affect that technology will have on our lives. I'm also hopelessly unable to distinguish the difference between affect and effect, and when you should use one or the other. This may affect some people more than others. 
Work
Occupation
I fix computers and computer like things. I work with soldiers, but I'm not one anymore. You can also find me in the Chrome OS group, Chromebook Central, quite often.
