This sums it up nicely.
SB Nation
Tim Howard saved everything until all hope was lost -- then Julian Green restored hope. The USA may have lost to Belgium, but their heroic run deserves the thanks of a drunken populace.

To the precision of the measurement I think it's as good as it gets. I declared it perfect and +Adri Penix decided to verify my claim.

I'm trying to search craigslist for "aquarium" to see which category I should post my aquarium under.  It's not responding - timing out.  I'm not feeling too good about anyone being able to find my aquarium if I post it...

Is Craig's list broken?

Anybody want a 29 gal aquarium?

The kids were writing a poem together today - so cute!  Here's the poem:

My little pony all skiny &

triped on a wire
cot on fire and that was
the end o his day.  Hey!

I'm guessing +Jennifer Bevan is the most likely person in my circle to be a gift wrap geek like me...

I couldn't find the tape last night so I grabbed a glue stick. The presents look like magic - tight seams & no tape. And its easier than fumbling with the tape dispenser while trying to hold the paper. Am I the last person or the fist person to figure this out???
