Why can't I upload audio on G+?

Uploading photos and gigabyte-sized videos is possible, but audio isn't.   Why the hell not?

The opposite of pastel is dunkel.  In HSV, this is low value (lightness) and high saturation.  Pastel is light and low-to-medium saturation.   Dunkel colors are darker than what we call "earth tones" and include blues and purples.

Typical logical fallacy for device/gadget reviewers:

It's okay to think:  If I want this device, someone else could also want it.
It's not okay to think: If I don't want this, then no-one else could ever want it.

For example, someone reviewing an iPad Mini and seeing a place for it in his/her life.  It's completely fine to imagine that someone else, like you, could find a use for this device.

That's okay.

Now let's imagine someone reviewing a Cowon, a dedicated portable audio player.  The reviewer already has a smartphone, a tablet, a laptop and HTPC.  He doesn't feel the need to have a dedicated, portable audio player and gives it a poor review.  "It's a useless device. I can't imagine anyone wanting this." 

Really?  To have a device that has superior battery life, better audio quality?  You cannot imagine a single person on the planet to want this?
Is everyone on the planet you?

This is the difference in logic:

Scenario 1. There is somebody like me.
Scenario 2. There is nobody unlike me.

The first scenario is highly probable, the second is impossible.

To expand on it:

Scenario 1: If I can use it, somebody else could.
Scenario 2: If I can't use it, nobody can.

In the first scenario, we are in the realm of "possible," "could" and the indefinite "somebody."

In the second, we are in the realm of the definite - nobody (no one at all), and "can not." 

Sometimes, the reviewer adds evidence with personal anecdotes "none of my friends," and "no one I know" and so on.

Reviews are subjective and personal, but there is difference between "I can't really see myself buying this" and "There is no way anyone would  ever want this."

Subjective is saying you don't want it.  That is the reviewer's opinion. Insisting that no one would ever want it and presenting that as a fact is neither fact nor opinion.

Can anyone help?  I need to create a dictionary like this with the ability to use regex/special characters:

roc* = rock 'n roll
h_lp = help
*lease = please

At what point did Apple users go from "I'm the only one I know with an Apple device" to "Let's laugh at Windows Phone's Marketshare!" and "We're #1! We're #1!" ?

The best chicken in Montreal, hands down. Smoked chicken. You have to try it. Seriously. Beats any other chicken in the city. Their pizza is good, but their smoked chicken is the best. If you want smoked chicken, this is the place to go. If you want chicken, this is the place. If you want something you've never had before, this is the place. This is not a review of the restaurant, service, prices, other things. This is just a statement of fact - this is the best chicken ever. If I'm wrong, you're welcome to insult me on G+.
