My newest circle is "People who send me a 'test' Google Events Invite, and must therefore be torn apart by ravenous bears." Try not to be in it. The bears are getting tired.

Welcome to the circle.  Here's your official shirt.  What color is it?
 
I regret that I have only one +1 to give this post.
 
Clearly, more bears are needed so they can work in shifts.
 
Well, since we have the right to arm bears, they can just lean back and...

...I got something wrong in all this, didn't I?
 
I was wondering when your post along these lines would come. It was obviously inevitable...
 
OK but I was on the cutting edge of the testing so mine doesn't count.
 
Perhaps you can use the rate of invites as a measure of your, or Google+, popularity. A nice infograph would be appreciated.

How Biblical :)
 
Wow, great minds...  Fortunately I'm not well known -- I can't imagine what this is like for you guys, cause I'm annoyed with the ones I got, and that's a fraction of yours.
 
Welcome to the thunderdome. Let's eat pancakes.
 
I WILL GO INVITE SCALZI TO EVERYTHING FOR THE GREAT HONOR OF BEING TORN APART BY HIS BEARS. FANBOY SQUEEE! or something equally ludicrous. I mean, really. It'd be an honor. 
 
I am sure they are the best bears my Redshirts money can buy. 
 
That would be the Redshirts circle...
 
That Exists? What flavor of narrative gymnastics is required to get into that? Because I finished Redshirts and immediately went out and thought about designing an RPG that builds campaigns like it...
 
Streams crossing, Scalzi Followed by Wheaton repost of Scalzi, Aaaaaahhhh.

Doesn't help that I wrote about something similar for the Linux Kernel Mailing List FAQ. You must get it quadruple.
 
How about, "People who have no idea who you are"?

That said, your "Redshirts" photo makes me like you already...
 
What about a circle for ravenously tearing into beers?  Can I be in that?
 
That's funny. My new circle is 'people who got my cell phone number off G+ and used it to send me spam inviting me to read their debut novel, a charming gay love story.'
 
I have managed to not get a single event invite.  I was a little jealous when it started, but now it just makes me want to point and laugh at everyone else.  Sometimes being a nobody pays.  =)
 
I've gotten 2 invites. They were of things that had already been discussed, so not really tests.

Please put the bears on pay-per-view so you can at least make some money. They can't be cheap to feed.
 
At the risk of supporting the heinousness of Events, I would love it if the authors I have circled sent out Events for their books release dates. It would be even better if there were a sign up option so that we could put ourselves automatically in a circle of people that want that information and you didn't have to guess who wants it and who doesn't.
 
This comment has been eaten by bears.
 
Funny that I get a lot of those test events lol.
