With the emergence of bioprinting and a host of other medical advances and technologies, I believe we have reached a point in time where cryogenics is a reasonable alternative to burial or cremation. 
Wellcome Trust-funded stem cell research has produced red blood cells fit for transfusion into humans, paving the way for the mass production of blood

If you have location sharing enabled on the Google+ app for Android or IOS, you can not only share your current location with specific friends and family, but you can also review where you have been as Google keeps a history for you. Not good if you are a conspiracy theorist, have something to hide, or are afraid of "Big Brother" but for everyone else it is pretty darn cool.

You don't have to share your exact location with everyone, and you can share general location information with circles if you prefer or nothing at all.

If you have it enabled already here is the link to your historical location tracking:

https://maps.google.com/locationhistory

If you don't have it enabled and want to give it a whirl here's the information you need to get started:

I wonder how many years off the #singularity is. 30, 50, 100, 200? I would say 100 years from now it's possible. 200 years from now, with out a doubt. Assuming we don't destroy ourselves first.

Neat experiment.
 
Have you played with  #SuperCooled  water? By taking water below its freezing point without it freezing allows you to do some cool things! I have done this with beer before, but water looks like fun too :-) #Physics   #Science

Battlefield 2142 is available for $.99 right now on Amazon. I already own it and might not ever play it again but for $.99 I can't say no.

Just in case you were wondering how the new view count works.
 
Several people have been asking me about the new "view count" number which shows up on your profile, and I've been answering on a bunch of threads, so let me give you the key answers in one place.

What does this number count? This is total views on your profile, your posts, your photos, and your videos. 

What constitutes a "view?" For your profile, when someone goes to view your profile page. For other things, it's when they look at it -- e.g., when one of your posts shows up on someone's screen. (That's because this is how most people read posts: showing up in a stream, without clicking on it explicitly) Looking at your hovercard doesn't count.

Is this related to +1's, reshares, etc.? Only in that someone who +1'ed your post also probably saw it. You can already see counts for those on individual posts, etc., and before today you could see view counts for each photo if you looked carefully at the one-up view -- now you can see that for everything.

If someone reshares my post, does that count? Yes, since a viewer is seeing your content. Ditto if someone sees your post through an "Alice +1'ed this," through a post embedded on a page, or any other way that someone encounters it.

I don't want to show this on my profile! You can hide this by going to your settings page. Go to plus.google.com/settings and look for "Show how many times your profile and content have been viewed."

This seems strange: Some people seem to have a lot more views relative to their number of followers than others. Is something broken? Not at all. Some people have a lot of followers but don't engage with them well, while other people engage amazingly with a smaller group. 

I want to find out more. Check out the Help Center article at http://goo.gl/8BjroH .
