Wait, what? 
 
Boom!
But I’m an expatriate and the Harper government won’t let expatriates participate in Canadian elections

Apparently, Harper & the Conservatives pass two different election bills in the past two years:
http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/politics/harper-government-submits-45-amendments-to-contentious-fair-elections-act/article18302902/
http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/expat-voting-bill-harper-government-proposes-small-changes-1.3091281
Looks like Harper is basically trying to push voter suppression in hope that it will help him in the next election. :-(

I was sitting at the kitchen table watching some design videos on YouTube and just started doodling in my notebook.

Prepare for mind blowage.

Donald Hoffman: Do we see reality as it is? #TED : http://on.ted.com/s0id8
Cognitive scientist Donald Hoffman is trying to answer a big question: Do we experience the world as it really is ... or as we need it to be? In this ever so slightly mind-blowing talk, he ponders how our minds construct reality for us.

Hey +Google Play can you please explain why the YouTube Kids app in the Play Store shows up for me in Canada, but says it's not compatible with any of my devices? I have a Nexus 4, Nexus 5, and Nexus 9. If it's not compatible with official Google Nexus devices, that's insane.

If it's US only, then why does it even show up in the store for me?

I'm doubting you will even answer me. :-(

I should point out it does NOT show up when I search from my device. It ONLY shows when I search from the web browser, but it does show even though I am logged in to my account. I would have thought it would not show up even on web store because I am not hiding my IP.

If you like Minecraft, and fun shows that are also educational, check out the new show from +Stampy Cat​ called Wonder Quest. The entire first season is on YouTube.

There are two different "streams" of episodes that make up the season; animated mini episodes where Stampy and his friend Keen discuss different ideas about learning and science, and a "stream" of episodes made in the Minecraft game that are in the style of a Minecraft adventure map.

In the "adventure" show Stampy and Keen need to retrieve the 5 lost pieces of the Wonderment gem from the villain Heinous to restore the sense of wonder amongst the citizens of Wonderburg that keeps them investigating the world. To accomplish their task they will have to use all the scientific skills they've learned along the way.

My 4yo son and I watched the entire first season in a day, and he loved it so much he asked to watch it all again. Stampy and his team have done an absolutely amazing job bringing science to children in an engaging and family-friendly way.

5 stars.
