The new season of OrphanBlack is up on Amazon, and I got paid a dollar (via a $1 Amazon MP3 Store Credit) to order it!

I'm entirely OK with this.

Delicious.
Also, someone here just got a hangout request (we heard the oh so familiar tone), and it wasn't us!

I used the old hangout-join tone as a text message notification for a long time. 
I was in a (full) public hangout with +Amanda Blain at one point, and I kept getting text messages, at which point Amanda would try to figure out who the new person was...
The enbafflement that lasted about 30 minutes was pretty epic.

"He said the privately held company took in about $85 million last year, adding it employs about 200 workers during the pepper-grinding season and 60 year-round."

That's right folks - Market Giant and beloved Sriracha manufacturer Huy Fong Foods is a Small Business, with only 60 FTEs in the whole company.

I'm thinking 85 million is a nice bit of taxes we'll take em over here. Why would anyone try to run a honest reputable business that generates that much tax revenue. Bleep you California!

*Yet another reason I left California in 1992, and never looked back*

The ban goes into effect more than a month after the Los Angeles City Council, citing potentially harmful chemicals emitted via e-cigarette vapors, voted to restrict e-cigarette use in the same areas where tobacco smoking is barred.

"Potentially harmful chemicals", huh? Let's see what those might be...
http://ntr.oxfordjournals.org/content/early/2013/12/10/ntr.ntt203.short

The study showed that e-cigarettes are a source of secondhand exposure to nicotine but not to combustion toxicants...The average concentration of nicotine resulting from smoking tobacco cigarettes was 10 times higher than from e-cigarettes (31.60 vs. 3.32 µg/m3, respectively).

Dumbassery abounds.
 
LA bans e-cigs indoorss
E-cigarettes are now banned in bars, restaurants and other public areas.

+Michael Baker Would you say that airborne nicotine is more or less hazardous than, say, airborne inorganic arsenic when the exposure level is the same?

195,000 on my 1997 M3.
Ditto on the cornering, but a new Accord or Camry v6 has about 50hp on me these days.
I let them go first at the on ramp. :)
 
120,000 miles on my 1993 Mazda Miata MX5. Not bad for a 21 year old car. Still can corner with the best of them. :)

Actually, I had to sell Dorothy. She was the dark green Del Sol I meet you
in. She currently has about 230k miles. Her new owner still links up with
me to do her oil changes.

Story
Introduction
If you've looked for your flight or your baggage claim on a monitor at Denver International Airport in the last decade, we have already crossed paths, and didn't even know it, cuz that's my job...

*A Gamer*

*A musician* - Guitar, Ukulele, 6-string Banjo (EADGBe), and a little bit of terrible violin. (P.S. I love music hangouts)

*A motorcycle aficionado* - I ride a DRZ400, and love every minute of it. Especially the part where I find the following types of 'shortcuts':
 - hopping a curb
 - cutting on the sidewalk
 - crossing a field
 - stairs.

* Speaking of Stairs...I'm a Goon (Mostly a Cycle Asylumni, but also a Musician Lounger),

*A "trivia ninja"*.

* A Circle Curator - I curate a "Denver-ish" circle. It currently has about 400 **active** Google Plus users. I add new people, and remove inactive people on a weekly basis. You can find a version of it here.

CIRCLE MANAGEMENT STRATEGIES
This works REALLY well if your circles are a disheveled mess!

Create 5 new empty circles. called:
Regulars
+1ers
Commenters
Post Share
Everyone


First:
Dump everyone from all your circles into "Everyone".

This may take two passes, as you may bump against the 'daily circling limit' that Google has, if you have a lot of people already circled.

Go ahead and keep people in your various (dishevelled) specialty circles if you like, but 

YOU WON'T BE READING THOSE CIRCLES ANYMORE.

Why? 
People in those circles are real human beings and post all kinds of stuff, cat macros, macro photography, circle management strategies, etc. that are completely unrelated to the circle you've put them in...

Again - your specialty circles are now for POSTING, not READING.

Now that you have everyone in Everyone...
As people interact with you, add them to the circle that matches how they interacted.
Did someone +1 your post, your comment, or your comment on someone else's posts? Put them in +1ers. Same with commenting on your posts, and/or resharing them - put them in the proper circle right from the notification pane.

When you discover someone who has been added to 4 of the 5 new circles - i.e. they have check marks for Everyone, +1ers, Commenters, and Post Shared, add them to Regulars.

The side effect of organizing this way is that the level of consistent interaction I have with people has gone WAY WAY up. because I'm interacting more frequently with people who interact with me more frequently. There isn't really a case where someone who is +1ing my posts regularly is getting lost in the shuffle - it just takes one +1 to get dropped into the +1 Circle - and then when I read the +1 Circle, I'm likely to +1 your post, because I KNOW you've already done the same with me... Same with sharing, and commenting... 
And of course, it makes figuring out who your 'regulars' are dead simple.

* Everyone who circles me gets circled, and they go into Everyone, so when I run out of content in the other 4 circles of people who have interacted with me, there's a secondary stream of content where I can be the one giving the first +1, Comment on, Reshare, etc. "Give and Get Give" as the mangled paraphrase goes.

* Periodically remove everyone from the Everyone circle and leave only the people in special interest circles and the 'interaction' circles. If you've had me circled for a while, but haven't found a single thing I post to be worth a +1, and you haven't posted content interesting enough for me to drop you into a specialty circle (Gaming, Science, Ukulele, Motorcycles, etc.) where I think you belong, then you're outta here, bub.

And I'm never at a loss for people to hang out with. =)

The *one and only* criticism I have is that the restaurant could lose the radio playing up front. It's that station that's been meant for 14 year old girls for decades. It would have been Duran Duran in 1983, Janet Jackson in 1987, Biggie Smalls in 1997, and today it's One Direction.Great if you're 14. Not so much if you're not.Everything else is top notch. EDIT: 11/20/12 - Went back for dinner tonight. The music was "Classic Rock, Performed on a Casio Keyboard, with Cowbell Percussion" Hilarity Embodied.

tl;dr AVOID. ORDERS MISSING 1+ ITEMS EVERY TIME. I sometimes succumb to the urge to go to this Taco Bell because it's "the close one", and the one on 104th Avenue always has a super long line. I regret my decision. Every. Single. Time. They can never get the order right. Never. I can count on my fingers the number of times I have been happy with what I got, and didn't "overpay" by a couple of bucks. I wouldn't mind so much if it were wrong, but it's always one or two items *missing* (this time, 2 Caramel Apple Empanadas), never enough to go get in the car and go back (because, seriously, it's two bucks), but always enough to go, "Oh, fer cryin' out loud". The Taco Bell on 104th Avenue has a long line basically always...and I suspect that the lesson learned here is why.

Really good wings, even if they don't deliver. A little bit on the pricey side, but again, the Lemon Pepper is worth the drive.

They don't have my favorite Chiles Rellenos in the world - but then again, I can't get my favorite chilles rellenos delivered - so...I'm sold! I've also had the carne asada tacos and carne asada torta. Both are phenomenal. The decor is sparse, as you would expect to find in a little shoestring budget hole in the wall restaurant. They totally deserve your business. You'll be delighted!
