This.

Next time I call in late to work, I would like it to be because a giant minion blocked the road.
A giant inflatable Minion caused chaos for commuters in north Dublin when it came loose from its restraints.

One of my favourite things about g+ is being able to share long form content here (even if I'm limited to one link or one picture).
But the best thing, for me, is that I don't have to live in an internet bubble. 
I can choose to look at what google thinks is 'hot' for me - or I can seek out diverging opinions and personalities.  Most days I do both.
The rich, diverse, free web that I loved — and spent years in an Iranian jail for — is dying. Why is nobody stopping it?

As it says on the box, a map of every job in America.
An awesome map that lets you take a deep look at the economic structure of American cities.

Can anyone help us with our Sunday morning experiment?
We are doing some educated guessing, but can't tell how long this needs to go in the microwave.

This part of the world has changed so much in the last 150 years.
 
Sydney

Circa 1877

These old things really amaze me. I flew into Sydney again on Wednesday afternoon after being in Brissy for a couple of days. I don't know why, but the flight did a circle of the city so I got to have a good look at the expanse of the CBD and the inner harbour. It's nothing short of amazing how much it's changed in just under 150 years.

For those that don't know, "Circular Quay" is where the +Sydney Opera House is located, and "Millers Point" is where the Sydney Harbour Bridge is. That's close enough anyway...I didn't put the words on the map :)

This is so COOL!
It's a loop of images from the new Himawarai-8 satellite, showing the the eruption of the Manam volcano in Papua New Guinea - last Friday, created by Dan Lindsay of NOAA.
The eruption height was > 20 km (stratospheric).  Manam is near the Japan-Australia routes. It erupts relatively frequently and generally without much warning - the volcanologists don't understand the subterranean structure very well, and it's a difficult island to monitor.
 Manam ash is actually hard to see using normal remote sensing techniques, because it tends to be locked in ice-ash aggregates, so often we've had to infer it using other techniques such as SO2 detection.  True colour images, formerly only available on polar orbiters such as Aqua/Terra/MODIS.

I love it when maps and art collide.  This one is an unwitting collaboration between the people of New York - by drawing directions to landmarks for the Japanese artist, they were helping him build his artwork.
Nobutaka Aozaki dressed as a tourist and asked for directions from unsuspecting strangers, building a map of their hand-drawn routes to famous buildings

Enclaves within enclaves... within another enclave?
An actual peaceful border resolution that will make things, at least theoretically, simpler.
 
Dahala Khagrabari was a part of India, surrounded by a Bangladeshi enclave, which was surrounded by an Indian enclave, which was surrounded by Bangladesh.

Well... regular sushi has weird textures too so I suppose that's reasonable.

F@#$!
 
In memory of a favourite English teacher of mine (although I have no idea if she's dead or not). I hope not. My limited googling ability tells me she might have retired to the Western Cape..

I think I've shared this video before, but +Leslie Sox has included the links to the instructions... I'd love to try building something like this!
 
If you have a spare Xbox Kinect and a projector this would be a cool project to build. The video is courtesy of TEC Videos from The East Carolinian, the publication of East Carolina University. The software and instructions are available from Oliver Kreylos at The University of California, Davis. http://idav.ucdavis.edu/~okreylos/ResDev/SARndbox/

Now I'm curious to know if Doctor Spruill helped create the video. He was my geology professor at ECU back in the late 1990s.
