+Todd Cochrane Since you had sent me the invite to Ingress I wanted to send you this link.  They've updated the deadline to 5 pm Pacific Time today (Wed. Feb. 25) to get on the list.

To get on the list for the Endgame closed beta you have to donate $5 or more to support the Cahokia Mounds and tag that donation with "#AncSoc".  When you get the invitation, I would recommend joining the Cahokian line for a couple of reasons.

This is the link to donate: http://www.gofundme.com/cahokiamounds

The link was where the original info was provided: http://www.AncientSocieties.com/action-save-cahokia-mounds/
This campaign is set up to raise $7,500 to purchase new brochures for Cahokia Mounds State Historic Site.  Please help!! Cahokia Mounds State Historic Site is considered one of the largest and most complex archaeological sites north of the great Pre-Columbian cities in Mexico.  It is one of only...

+Todd Cochrane These were the glyphs that were posted at the end of last week on the Endgame backstory site: https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-8g6rDG9LSco/VOh5-D0BnUI/AAAAAAAAJTg/Nr1KDtxa4p8/w426-h568/balltasirfragment.jpg

One person's translation (not mine) was:

Truth Past Truth Present Civilization - the truth of the past still applies today [my note: what about "Civilization"?]
Conflict Courage Strong Victory Reincarnate  - the winning faction will be reincarnated [in Endgame]
Weak Lose Die Destroy - the weaker faction will die and be destroyed
Rebel All Die - if you choose not to go along, everyone will die.

The gist is that the stronger faction will get transitioned to Endgame, retaining AP and badges, etc.  The weaker faction won't. I wanted to replace "faction" with "player" but ran into trouble translating it that way.

For example, I'd like to translate the last line as Any Player who refuses to transition from Ingress to Endgame will die (they'll lose their AP and badges? or just stop working?).  But "All" comes after "Rebel", so how would you read it?

If anyone is interested in Niantic's Endgame: Ancient Truth mobile game, see this post:

The reasons I recommend joining the Cahokian line are that it's the only North American based line and Joe Philley has declared his allegiance to that line.

I see a pattern in the "O" through "S" range:

     P     
   O   Q?   
 ⎺       R 
   ?   S   
     ?     

There aren't enough letters in the other ranges to confirm that, though:

     ?             K             T     
  ?   E         ?   ?         \   ?   
?       A     ?       ?     ?       ? 
  ?   ?         /   ?         ?   ?   
    |              ?              ?     

Either one or the other (not both) of the last two could be:

                 |                        |        
               ?   ?                    T   ?      
             ?       ?                ?       ?    
               K   ?                    ?   ?      
                 ?                        ?

I had to get a new plate because the "L8 Agent" plate I had since 2013 didn't apply any longer (https://plus.google.com/109240755756039259715/posts/B4bpLRShMRy spotted by +Brad Parks, posted by Shane H.). "Ingress" was still available, but is now taken by Liz Donovan / Avalon42 (https://plus.google.com/+LizDonovan/posts/XRSwva3infK). I got this new plate just before PA raised the rates from $20 to $76(!) last year and just in time for Operation Yankee (https://www.YouTube.com/watch?v=sc5DnZP6OB8).

I wonder if anyone has something like "4 MUS" (couple with 2 kids) or maybe just "MIND UNT" (a single person).

Net weight 13 lbs.... Oops! We meant 11.2 lbs.
I wonder how many Super Bowl parties will have a cake in the shape of a deflated football on Sunday....
A Pennsylvania candy maker got some kicks out of a deflated chocolate football it made as it poked fun at the New England Patriots' Deflategate scandal.
