Found in a quick Google search. I was looking for information about how Facebook affects our brains. This picture says it all. I wouldn't call myself an addict, but I do admit I'm drawn to the site on a daily basis to keep up with content by people I care about. I'm looking for a better way to do that where I am not the product.

Google searches: Windows battery icon lies, Windows battery symbol not showing as charging when plugged in

I use a Windows 7 notebook at work. For a couple days the battery icon in the system tray did not acknowledge that my notebook was docked and plugged into AC power. It gave varying battery levels. This morning it said my battery was at 50%. Googling returned discussions of various situations. I'm linking to the one on the HP Support Forum that was closest to my own. Hoping to improve the Google search results. I have a Dell. It seems to be a Windows bug. The icon simply got out of sync with reality. I unplugged power from my dock, waited a few seconds, and plugged it back in. Voilà. That's all it took.
This morning when I plugged my HP G62 into the mains nothing happened. I knew the battery was flat but there appeared to be nothing going through t... - 1104763

Metaphors in American Politics. An excellent page explaining  synecdoche vs. metonym vs. toponym.
Metonymy Metonymy (pronounced meh-TAHN-uh-me) and synecdoche (sih-NECK-duh-key) are two specialized forms of figurative language. Metonymy occurs when a word for a feature of something is used to represent the entire concept.  For example, in the famous phrase the pen is mightier than the sword, the pen represents writing and the sword represents fighting.

Google auto-awesome. Stupid robot aesthetics. Humans can see that it flunks as a panorama. Sort of a pretty "double-exposure," though. And the coincidence is too strong to ignore. This is the Double Trouble, N8241, landing after Saturday's 2015 Friends & Lovers Balloon Rally launch.

I Googled interjections and landed at +Vidar Holen's excellent dictionary. There are a couple I would add. Most significantly, ack, made famous by Bill the Cat in the Bloom County comic. I also think ba-dum-BUM deserves inclusion. I'm ambivalent about ba-dum-bum... CHING. That crosses the line into an onomatopoeia IMO.

 I'm a little excited that Audi has invented what it calls "fuel of the future" made of water, carbon dioxide (CO2), and whatever they mean by "renewable sources." They call it e-diesel. The key is high-temperature electrolysis that breaks hydrogen out of the water so it can react with CO2. They don't talk about the cost, so it must be far too expensive now to be practical.

But, hey, who can be opposed to an idea that turns water and CO2 into fuel? Oh, wait, they don't reveal the net carbon footprint of the process, including the step where the car burns the fuel and emits more CO2.

I'm not into chocolate or the rest of the chic, self-indulgent "because I'm worth it / I deserve it" vibe. I wouldn't come by myself, only with chicks (don't tell my wife). Perfect for before of after a chick flick. This place is overpriced for the portion size. I don't like the flavor of their recipes. Still, three stars because if you're into this sort of thing you'll get what you pay for. I like the hug mug. And the service is excellent. Good advice. Attentive. Today all I ordered was toast. It was completely under-cooked and cold. C'mon? Wife gave me the rest of her omelette & potatoes. Both were perfectly done. Delicious.

I agree with all the previous reviewers, but I will give a warning: Be prepared to be underwhelmed by the sauces. I tried all five. Two are mustard-based. They were delicious, but I'm not into that. Maybe on onion rings, but that's not what I ordered. The mild was mild. I'm not into that. The tangy was tangy. My favorite by a slight margin. The hickory was tasty, but mild. One of the mustard sauces was spicy, but not spicy enough for me. And too mustardy for meat, unless you're into that. I'm not. What's missing from this BBQ place is a fiery red sauce. I'd even settle for "hot." I want to end on a positive note. There are many. This place earned its "Excellent" rating from me. The meats were delicious! Tender! I had the "burnt ends." Never heard of them before. It's the top inch of the brisket, cut into one-inch squares. One side is crunchy. The rest is tender and cooked to perfection. I had three pork ribs. Dry rubbed. Tender, meaty, and tasty. For sides I had baked beans cooked to perfection. Slaw is a dry style. I like mine more creamy. The side salad with lemon vinaigrette was also delicious.

I was on vacation and found this place googling for Cajun restaurants in Little Rock. This is an error -- probably keying off the chef's "New Orleans training," but I'm very glad I found this eatery. The chef was patient with my ignorance -- Acadian food has French influence and focuses on local ingredients. He changes the menu every six weeks. Because I walked in expecting Cajun, he offered to blacken my orange roughy. It was prepared to perfection. The others in my party had chicken, pasta, and salmon. We all had the roasted corn pesto chowder. Everything was delicious. Beautiful presentation. Creative combinations of ingredients. I never had the opportunity to taste wasabi carrots before (served with the salmon). I loved them! Other have praised the deck. I was apprehensive because the restaurant was completely empty at 6:30 p.m. on a Saturday night, but it was only because everyone was on the deck. We chose to eat inside and had it all to ourselves. The service was flawless!
