Exploring the world with +Google Glass

Just recently, I met this gentleman in the wilds beyond the desert. He was so curious and interested in Glass. Absolutely transfixed, he asked me everything about it, then tried it on and played and played and played!  He loved it!  

First I had him go through the same demo I give everyone.  I have them say, "Okay Glass, Take a picture" — it understands pretty much every accent around the world as far as I can tell. This always makes people freak out with excitement when they see the photo they just took floating as a hologram in front of their eyes.  

Then he started using it more and more, going through all my emails, watching videos, seeing my text messages, asking Google questions, checking weather... I mean it just went on and on and on... and then he started showing all his friends and telling them about it — he was so excited.  Naturally, he was happy for me to take his photo while he was playing!

We ended up talking about a bunch of different things.  I even bought an old used knife from him, and he showed me how to stick the curved end of it into a camel's hump to get water in an emergency.  There's another part of the knife you use to seal up the little puncture wound.  Then we talked about mediation, the sealing of the four cardinal spiritual doors in the night before entering the tent, different cultures around the world, and well, about a dozen other things.  Anyway, it was great... 


(btw after posting this, haha - I see that G+ automatically tagged it with Selfie!)

"Despite rhetorical efforts to the contrary, the foundation of fighting against abortion accessibility is the idea that women are less important than the pregnancies they can carry."
The strategic shift from calling women murders to labeling them victims of abortion will never work, because we understand that in either case our health and rights are beside the point.

Though it is likely the elephant doesn't know he is painting an elephant, the fact that they can be trained to paint one at all is amazing.
 
If there is one animal that I love more than cats, it is the elephant. Unfortunately I do not have a yard or house large enough for elephant companions and besides I already asked and my wife said no.

One last point on the whole creationism vs reality...er, science thing. If anything shows you right off the bat that the Bible isn't going to be...

Great place to hear live music every day of the week, and the beer prices are pretty good too.

Terrific food but it is a bit cramped. If the atmosphere was a bit better I would consider a 5 star.

Excellent service is coupled with the best pizza in town. Everything tastes great and comes out quickly. Their salami is out of this world.

The Buffalo Chicken Pizza is pretty fabulous, but there isn't much else there to write home about. The draw is their microbrewed beer, but I find it to be mediocre at best, and definitely not worth the cost of a pint.
