This is hilariously awesome. Watch to the end, when the 2nd crane on the left just falls over and dies. :)

not very surprising...

"computer screens do not provide enough colour information to be able to 'tap into' the extra dimension that tetrachromats may possess. It is therefore impossible for an online test to investigate tetrachromacy."

thank you for the link to sanity, +Lisa, ofs

THIS. All the online test can tell you is whether you are color deficient and what degree of ability (something that can be increased through practice, BTW, even, to a limited degree, for folks with color deficiency) to match or differentiate shades of color you have. There are some awesome tests out there for those, by the way.

adding this to my collection of variations...

the collection up to now included:

Mary had a little lamb. The doctor was surprised.

Mary had a little lamb with carrots, mash and peas.

Mary had a little lamb/its fleece was black as soot/and everywhere that Mary went/his sooty foot he put.

but this one... it puts them all in the shade :D
 
Overheard;

Mary had a little lamb whose fleas were white as snow.

Now I can't stop thinking about albino fleas.

I had a book of nursery rhymes as a child that were all like that, it got lost somewhere along the way, and the only one I can't remember that I wish I could remember was one about Little Miss Muffet and not being afraid. The other ones I either remember or didn't care about as a kid anyway ;-)

ok, that's cool. I tried setting a reminder for something on Evernote and wasn't sure if I'd get a reminder unless I open the thing, but it sent me an email reminder so yay.

(because that's what I found useless with reminders on Keep - no reminder unless I have Keep open. any reminder thing that relies on me remembering to open it first is useless to me.)

resharing because why should I splutter alone.

Also, UK readers should keep their eyes out for the upcoming sequel, "Lose 50 pounds in a week! (And learn a valuable life lesson besides!)", just £49.99 at Waterstone's.

+Yonatan Zunger has a new book coming out...

thank you God for getting me to the supermarket and back in daylight. thank you for the days getting longer. and thank you for the warm sunshine - first time this year driving with my window open! yay!

and for the perfect timing of my watch battery stopping on a day when I was going to the supermarket anyway and there's that place there that does watch repairs and yes, they do honour their "battery for life" promise. (first time using that. paid for it a couple of years ago - they charge a bit extra for the promise of as many replacements as you're going to need, which is way cool.)

time for a rest now. but yay.

No, G+ isn't being killed, or broken up, or eaten by lions.

+Yonatan Zunger said:

A lot of misunderstanding and speculation. :) The internal org was renamed "Photos and Streams," because Sundar likes org names that match what the teams do. And since our org includes Photos, Google+, Blogger, and News, there you have photos, plus several streams of content.

No big user-facing changes tied to this at all.

I'm just going back to munching on cookies.

Bummer. I was really hoping they've seen reason and will detach YouTube and GooglePlay from my G+ stream.

Introduction
Shalom. greetings. aloha. hi. nice of you to pop round. put your feet up. coffee? there's biscuits in that tin over there, help yourself.

Who am I?

My name is Meirav. I'm human. My penguin's name is Quentin. I enjoy meeting fellow humans online. I like good intelligent discussion, as well as a good healthy dose of frivolity. I'm fascinated by human nature. I love words and languages. I'm bilingual - grew up in Israel speaking both Hebrew and English. I write. I blog. I have a tendency to speak my mind, sometimes a bit bluntly. (That means if I pay you a compliment, you can know it's for real.) I'm married. I live in England. I'm Jewish. I'm a fallible and imperfect follower of Jesus. I like cats, though currently I don't have any pets. I love chocolate. I'm an introvert, which means I need lots of solitude and quiet and time to hear myself think, and I don't do well in crowds and/or noise, which is part of why I find online social networking so valuable. I love reading. I don't currently own a TV. I have a strong aversion to order and structure, and a deep need for a certain level of chaos in my environment. I am annoyingly pedantic and tend to take words very literally. I like buying pretty stationery. I like purple, and pink. and I like randomly listing stuff :)

I keep rewriting the bit about photography here, because it's been evolving so much. I started out (in 2010) just pointing at things and snapping, but this whole thing grew on me and now I'd say I am someone who uses a camera to create visual art.

In terms of the technical side, I'm a pretty clueless beginner with a simple point & shoot camera. But I get a huge kick out of taking shots of stuff that I see and sharing some of them with the rest of the world. I'm fascinated by shapes and textures and colours and I love chopping a random rectangle out of the world around me and presenting just that bit, without context - it's the aesthetics I'm into, not the documentary value. Sometimes I mess around with a photo and turn it into an image that is not attempting to be realistic. Digital photo editing tools allow me to take a piece of photography and use it as art material. One of my friends said that what I do is painting without paint. I like that.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

If I've added you, that could be because you said something intelligent in a comment somewhere/your posts look interesting/your profile looks like you might be fun to get to know/I think I know you from somewhere/someone I respect recommended you/a whole load of other reasons. It doesn't mean I expect you to add me back, nor does it mean I necessarily want to be your bestest friend forever and ever. If you want to add me and read my posts, that's cool! Most of my posts are public, and comments are very welcome (as long as they're on topic and courteous, obviously). If you interact with me on my posts, I might get to discover what a fab person you are and add you back. (Though it's perfectly ok to just read quietly and not say anything, if that's what you're comfortable with.)

Thank you for taking the time to read this. I look forward to getting to know you more.

p.s. I don't do Hangouts. I much prefer typing to people than doing that face-to-face live conversation thing where you have to think up answers on the spot and you can't edit and rephrase or delete that totally stupid rash comment - it's bad enough having to do that offline, I don't come to G+ for more of the same. I'm a socially awkward penguin. That's just the way it is.

Newsflash:
Yes, I have a wall. Yes, you can write on it.
