Are you into Collections yet? Please consider them
Here are mine: https://plus.google.com/u/0/+RandyResnick/collections
If you have me circled, you know I post way too much in way too many disparate areas of interest. I have now classified my main interests into 6 categories. If you have me circled and you see something about food, unfollow it of you're not interested in food. Unfollow all the collections whose topic doesn't fit. You won't see those posts any more.
A truly elegant solution (for once!)
You want to save time, go unfollow the boring stuff right now.

Agreed, collections are even better than communities which were the best thing since Hangouts. While I realize Hangouts aren't used by everyone, I think a lot of people watch them.
Interestingly, Microsoft's social playground so.cl has collections. I wonder when that feature was added?  So.cl has some great ideas. 
Facebook is like an action movie. You pretty much know what will be there when you go, and it's a big crowd pleaser for the majority. There are many creatives on FB, but what they post is rarely creative, more being in the realm of promotion. I myself am guilty of that. In the same way I hate it when I follow a link and it turns out to be a FB page, I think the average person would wonder why I'm not on Facebook, if I'm trying to promote musical activity. 
What drives me crazy is that even some people who I like and know well use FB is the most silly and banal ways. Often, they're the kind who might "Google for yahoo.com" to get their email.

"Aggressive" sales techniques on the main street
I just read an article about this issue. Sales people pop out and "engage" passersby, foisting free samples on them and basically not letting go. It's alleged in the article I read that these shops have swindled at least two people with autism and alzheimer's. The cop visible as the store next door is the result. As we ramp up to a very busy few days of celebrations, they aren't fooling around. The article claims these places are doing business without a license (so why aren't they immediately shut down?), are owned by shell companies and that they create a "force field" pushing customers of the adjacent shops away as people try to avoid talking to these attractive young salespeople.

This keeps coming back. There's no good reason to get excited, although almost anything is possible.

"The experiments from Professor Martin Tajmar's group at the Dresden University of Technology have spawned numerous overexcited headlines making claims that –- let's be very clear here –- are not supported by the science." phys.org

"4 Reasons Why The EM Drive is Probably Bullshit" http://goo.gl/qflilP "This principle is fundamental and has never been violated (except in Bugs Bunny cartoons of course)."
What if I told you that recent experiments have revealed a revolutionary new method of propulsion that threatens to overthrow the laws of physics as we know them? That its inventor claims it could allow us to travel to the Moon in four hours without the use of fuel? What if I then told you we cannot explain exactly how it works and, in fact, there are some very good reasons why it shouldn't work at all?

This is the one that keeps on giving. Hey, how cool would this be if it were true? And that beautiful 25 year old woman is giving me the eye.

More than a fond memory, this phone has connected me to Europe every year since we've been coming to the USA. It's a pleasure to configure and it reboots in less than 15 seconds after a change. What a shame we can't use SIP with Google Voice.

I'm surprised this "service" hasn't gotten more publicity and that I've never heard of it. I have now tried different GV accounts, different GVSIP accounts and different SIP endpoints. The phones will register without a problem, but they can't connect to the GV accounts. Maybe it is temporarily not working, but as I said, the forum has people with the same complaint.

The only study of health and food and exercise I care about is one involving me.
I eat what I like and what my digestion and weight maintenance tell me works. Why would I eat what some person with a book for sale, doctor or not, claims is supported by "studies"?
Plus, I find the author of that book looks a lot like Karl Rove and sounds like an evangelist.

The only real question here, Randy, is whether there's enough whiskey in your diet. Falling short can cause severe depression on contact with reality, y'know.

Incidentally, I post this in "Seen in America" but obviously, most Western countries are the same. Also, I happened to take this photo in one spot, but in other places, like bike path side bushes, there is much more litter.
