Of course there's a God. His name is JESUS. I know him personally. I will be happy to introduce you to him.

In the Boy Scouts, they told me that the moss always grows on the north side of trees. If you're lost in the woods, it's a natural compass. Unless you're lost in these woods...

I'm surprised I have to ask this question: Where is the link that an ordinary, non-techno person like me can click on that will take me to a set of simple instructions and pointers for doing a Video Hangout? It appears that Google personnel actually designed this product (G+) with NO simple step-by-step instructions for its use. The Help link takes me to a disorganized mass of posts about anything and everything -- no instructional support that I can find. I'd like to set up a G+ Hangout in time for a special occasion next weekend, and I can't find information on how to do that. Can people be included who don't have G+ accounts?

Thanks, +Jose Navarro and +richard clarkson for trying to assist. My main unanswered question is: Can a person who doesn't have and refuses to obtain a G+ account participate in a Hangout?

Apparently, solar panels are a lot like plants. Just as some people believe plants respond well to music, solar panels seem to perform better when "listening," according to a study by London's Imperial College. The study found that sounds can increase solar panels' output, as long as the...
