The tl:dr version of the bible:
(via Reddit)
GENESIS
God:   All right, you two, don't do the one thing. Other than that, have fun.
Adam & Eve:   Okay.
Satan:   You should do the thing.
Adam & Eve:   Okay.
God:   What happened!?
Adam & Eve:   We did the thing.
God:   Guys

THE REST OF THE OLD TESTAMENT
God:   You are my people, and you should not do the things.
People:   We won't do the things.
God:   Good.
People:   We did the things.
God:   Guys

THE GOSPELS
Jesus:   I am the Son of God, and even though you have done the things, the Father and I still love you and want you to live. Don't do the things anymore.
Healed people:   Okay! Thank you!
Other people:   We've never seen him do the things, but he probably does the things when no one is looking.
Jesus:   I have never done the things.
Other people:   We're going to put you on trial for doing the things.
Pilate:   Did you do the things?
Jesus:   No.
Pilate:   He didn't do the things.
Other people:   Kill him anyway.
Pilate:   Okay.
Jesus:   Guys

PAUL'S LETTERS
People:   We did the things.
Paul:   Jesus still loves you, and because you love Him, you have to stop doing the things.
People:   Okay.

PAUL'S LETTERS PART II
People:   We did the things again.
Paul:   Guys

REVELATION
John: When Jesus comes back, there will be no more people who do the things. In the meantime,  _stop doing the things_.
THE END
**GENESIS** God: All right, you two, don't do the one thing. Other than that, have fun. Adam & Eve: Okay. Satan: You should do the thing. Adam...

So as a follow-up to a post I made a couple weeks ago surrounding Ellen Page’s speech at the “Time to Thrive” conference and voicing my desire to be more involved in the community, I’ve taken the first step toward this goal. I will be joining my friend +Miguel Torres  on his team, along with hundreds of other individuals in the Ride for AIDS - a two-day, 200 mile bike ride to fight HIV/AIDS in the Chicago area.

I’m participating in order to raise vital funds to support HIV services in my community. These include TPAN, The Chicago House, Howard Brown Health Center and several other organizations. These outfits provide things such as counselling services, housing assistance and health care and wellness programs throughout the LGBT community. HIV/AIDS has unfortunately been a prominent issue in the global LGBT community --Thankfully, with organizations like these, huge strides have been made to increase knowledge and sensitivity surrounding HIV/AIDS and work to eliminate the stigma associated with it. Ultimately the goal is to stop the spread and eradicate HIV/AIDS completely. I’m excited to support the groups that are working tirelessly in these efforts. 100% of the donations for this ride go to TPAN or one of the partners, please help out with any amount you can. Thank you for supporting my efforts!

Happy New Year's Eve Everyone! BE SAFE AND AVOID DRIVING TONIGHT!   If you're in Chicago, here are some details on public transit --

Penny Rides are back this year! Only this year MillerCoors is sponsoring it so you don't even need a penny...so yes, CTA buses and trains are free from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m.!! woohoo! (more info: http://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/CTA-Offers-New-Years-Eve-Penny-Rides--238069411.html)

Also, the attached link shows the added service (increased freq. and lengthened hours of operation) for the CTA trains.  

Don't hesitate to share this information with anyone you think might find it useful.

Gmail Issues
So I got an email from the "Gmail Team" stating that a new email address was created and linked to this gmail account. It gave me information on how got get started, using mobile apps, etc... things you might expect to find in a that sort of email.  The only problem is, I never created another account -- at the bottom of the email it says:
"If you didn't create this Gmail address and don't recognize this email, please visit: (link) to unlink this account

Everything  _LOOKS_ legit, but I'm not about to click on this link for this sketchy email... I tried looking through the help forum but can't find anything regarding this particular situation... any suggestions?

Btw, did you select two-factor authentication for your Google/Gmail account?

A verification code will be sent to you mobile, which is needed if you are accessing your mailbox from a different machine. That should help block access by unauthorised users...

Not gonna lie, my eyes got a little misty listening to this. She gives a pretty great speech. As she was applauding efforts and giving recognition to those who have stood up in the face of adversity, I had a thought:

I really do feel grateful, lucky, blessed, whatever you want to call it for not encountering the hatred, disapproval or other hardships from friends and family as I live my life as a gay man. Then I thought...How crappy is it that living a 'normal' life where I'm not judged or scorned for essentially just living, is something that I have to feel lucky and grateful for?

I think I'd like to be more active in the community this year... Maybe volunteer at the Center on Halsted here in Chicago or participate more in our Pride network at work. I'd really just like to help others make the coming-out process or any other aspect of living as a gay person as comfortable as it has been for me.

Oh, and I don't me to downplay anything with regard to being thankful... Thank You to everyone who has made my life a joy!
 
you can hear in her voice how nervous and scared she is, but her courage shines on.  Great speech.  Much love. #ellenpage   #inspiration

Fix my phone!  - 
 
My S3 updated to Android 4.3 last week and I keep getting these download complete notifications for various things that are in my "downloads" folder. Whenever I clear the notifications they reappear a few seconds later.

It's not downloading multiple copies, it's just the notification. What's going on?

You've found the correct Patrick

I like to eat. I like to drink. I like to run.  In no particular order.

I love finding new things via people that share them which is why I circle people.  Feel free to circle me as well!   Science, Nature, Photography, internet funzies, Jeeps,  really anything.

If you circle me first, chances are I won't circle you back until we've somewhat interacted a bit, so don't be shy!
