Like we needed more proof that we live in the future!

I am so amazed at where we stand today. We have actual consumer-grade VR here in less than a year (unless something goes REALLY REALLY WRONG), nascent AR (I'm not sure +Google Glass ever was it, but the #Hololens  sure seems to be), working #Exoskeletons , and freakin' #SelfDrivingCars .

And now we get the clip on equivelent to BIONIC EARS?!? I mean, just think of the convenience alone - adjustable office noise levels, motorcycle rides where you can have a much better awareness of the world around you, or just everywhere bluetooth speakers. I remember another that did lesser but still cool things with what they called "Environmental Soundscaping". #OwnPhones  I think it was.

Anyway, I'm pretty sure we're living in the future, because you can BUY some of the items mentioned in the link. :D

An open letter from +Bernie Sanders… from 1972! I'd call that a consistent view, right? :)

Which ideas in particular? My understanding (though I haven't verified it with all of his proposals) is that he's attempted to lay out preliminary funding ideas (some likely more in depth than others) with most of what he proposes. For example, the "College for All Act" (which he sponsored) is proposed to be paid for by a so called "Robin Hood" could be implemented - in this case, a 0.5% speculation fee would be levied on hedge funds, investment houses, etc., and a 0.1% fee on bonds and a 0.005% fee charged on derivatives. He alleges that these would cover his bill.

That said, I pretty much just cribbed that from feelbern.org - it's a REALLY handy site to see, at a minimum, what message +Bernie Sanders trying to say. Right from the horse's mouth, as it were. :)

Damn it, Bernie - I only have ONE VOTE TO GIVE (and I already promised it to you!)!!!

It's a crying shame to see people who NEED TREATMENT being put into jail instead of rehab (which also has the AWESOME side effect of exposing them to actual violent criminals), and even WORSE to see it for someone who's using something that is often agreed to be no worse than alcohol!

STOP BEING SO REASONABLE!!!!

Oh. My. God. This kid is AMAZING!!!

A 15 year old Iowai'an (or whatever they call themselves) lad has managed to file form with the likes of #bernie2016  & #Obama  before him, and is currently polling at 9% among North Carolina voters!!!

That is SUPERLATIVE.
The 2016 race for the Republican presidential nomination is officially nuts — "Deez Nuts."

I've been here many times over the years, and I was always very happy. I have fond memories of coming here in my early adulthood. It's the first place I ever tried General Tso's for crying out loud! Sadly, the last 3 or 4 times I've been here (all over the course of about a year, maybe two), it's been very disappointing. The food is stale, the service is iffy, and the whole experience isn't worth the price. What does it say about a place like this when the soups aren't even warm? Not hot, mind you, I'd settle for warm! When I left this time I made sure to tell the hostess that we would not be coming back again, and I just wanted to save others the effort and disappointment. Should the owner see this and wish to reach out to me, I'm happy to discuss it, though I don't think there's anything to be done to change it.

The food is OK (not great, not poor), the prices are a LITTLE high, but the real issue is that it takes FOREVER to get served there. I'm not sure where in the staff the issue lies, but it's kept me away from there for years at a time.

My wife & I went here just a few short days ago for a second honeymoon. Suffice it to say, when we walked into our room, we were floored. Between the sitting room out front, the spacious 2 person shower (a REAL two person shower, with two shower heads!), the jacuzzi RIGHT NEXT TO THE BED, the gorgeous bay windows & the gas fireplace (which was understandably non-functional in the summer heat), it was more than I expected for their "Standard" rooms (as opposed to their more impressive named rooms). During our three days & two nights there we interacted with a number of the staff, and without fail they were friendly & we really felt that they would do whatever they could to make our stay more enjoyable (this was put to the test when we came up empty handed after thinking we'd packed a cork screw - thankfully, they were able to come through for us. :) They did offer free wifi, but if it's something that matters to you, make sure to ask to be put in a room close to the access point, as they seemed to only have one, and I suspect that rooms much further away from it than ours would have tough time getting a signal. And note that in the area cell phone service can be anywhere from spotty to non-existent. I'm a VERY picky sleeper. I have a bit of a bad back, and generally have a tough time sleeping anywhere that's not home. I found the beds to be firm (which is not, by itself a bad thing - I personally prefer a firm mattress to a soft one), and slept like a baby, which, again, is rare for me. All in all, a really great time, with wonderful people. We'll be going back again. As for the other negative reviews, not sure what happened, but I'm happy to say that our experience was nothing like that. Also, if you're hungry, make sure to check out the Red Parka Steakhouse & Pub. We went for dinner one night, and nachos the next day. Great fare! And right next door is the Vintage Baking Co. The owner (I think) is VERY knowledgeable about breads & wines. I can't speak for the Tompsion House, as we waited there for 10 minutes before finally walking out after not being even acknowledged (this was with tables open, and everything - they just couldn't be troubled to even seat us let alone serve us). Edit - For some reason, my paragraph seperations arn't showing up, so this looks like a wall of text. My apologies. TL, DR - Great place, great people, go there now! :)
