Okay, Google, it's bad enough that the drop-down notification pane will disappear if you scoll too fast ... it's B R O K E N when the selection of notifications changes the next time you click on it.

I've already lost track of several threads because the pane closed before I'd read or replied to new content. While I will put a highly-active or interesting post in a separate tab, I shouldn't have to do this for every post I want to read.

Peeps all is not lost. If you click on the notification bell at the very top of that window is a link that says Google+ notifications. If you click on it you will have a stream style view of your notifications. Much easier to read and find things :).

Sith Lord Wonderland

Dark Lords scheme, plots they're spinning
A dark cloud falls, war's beginning
The Jedi insight is that there's something not right
We're living in a Sith Lord Wonderland.

Gone away is the Chancellor
Here to stay, is the Emperor
He'll show you, of course, the true nature of the the Force
We're living in a Sith Lord Wonderland.

Only two, a Master and Apprentice
Build in stealth and secret's what we do
The Dark Side beckons, fear will be our ally
When the Jedi think we're beaten, rise anew.

The Old Republic will expire
And give way to an Empire
A dark kind of thrill, think of the Rebels we'll kill
We're living in a Sith Lord Wonderland.

(R. Lai / 2005)

+Kazisohel Rana Not sure why your comment is turning up a month after it was posted, but the image is of the Hadron Supercollider at CERN, and the image was taken from their website.

A more-or-less successful attempt at making a teriyaki sauce/glaze, kept to a basic 1:1 of soy sauce/mirin, w/ 2 tbsps of sugar. Used aji-mirin, rather than actual mirin, but it didn't really seem to make a difference. Will probably add garlic and ginger to a subsequent attempt.

Reduction went well (that is, nothing burned), consistency is perfect.

Teriyaki Sauce

Start with one clove of peeled garlic in a stone mortar and pestle. Add 1/2 tablespoon of sea salt. Begin grinding. Once the first clove is unrecognisable, add another. Continue adding peeled garlic cloves until you have used five of them. Empty garlic puree into quart size saucepan. Repeat using 5 one inch cubes of ginger and standard white sugar instead of sea salt. Add ginger puree to sauce pan. Add 1 cup soy sauce, 1/2 cup good sake (drink the rest before and during dinner) and one cup of brown sugar. Heat over medium low heat, stirring occasionally for roughly one hour (while drinking sake). Remove from heat and stir in 1 teaspoon of freshly squeezed lemon juice. Allow to cool to just about room temperature.

Teriyaki Steak

Place a baseball cut sirloin steak into a deep sided bowl or large glass measuring cup. Pour sauce over top, immersing the steak completely. Cover bowl or glass with plastic wrap. Place in refrigerator and marinate for 24-36 hours. This assures maximum flavour without destroying the meat. Use of sirloin is important as you need the fat and connective tissue to assist in cooking. Using mesquite, oak, apple or some other suitable hardwood, create a fire and allow it to burn down to coals. Using a cast iron grill (not stainless BBQ grill) cook on each side for 5 minutes to medium rare. It is important to keep the grill within 2 inches of the bed of coals. You want to sear and slightly crisp the exterior of the meat. You may need to set the steak on its edge for 2-3 minutes on each face if you have been able to find a true baseball cut that doesn't have sides.

Serve with wild rice pilaf and choice of veggie. A small side cup of sauce (saved from the day before, not spent marinade) can be heated and served along with the steak.

From the people who 'don't understand the Internet,' the folks who brought you SOPA/PIPA/ACTA, it's TPP!

Well stated +Bob Lai Guess it is not just the uninformed in Washington DC but now the whole world is becoming brain dead in regard to technology and it's usage.

If I had Glass , you'd think I would like to do something unusual or evocative, but that implies, of course, that my daily life is dull, boring, and hum-drum. That the only content worth streaming is base jumping, or parkour, or live concerts. That there's some kind of young, hip reality the rest of us are missing out on.

Perhaps the trick is to just be you. To show us the world through someone else's eyes. I don't guarantee to amuse, thrill, or necessarily educate, but you'd see what I see (if you really want to see me staring at a computer screen all day). (Hmm, I wonder what the company social media policy is for devices like Glass.)

Did you know that H.G. Wells wrote articles describing everyday life?

Angel in a cemetery near Manchester, California. Light was all natural, as my flash  chose to die earlier in the shooting day. #hitmewithyourbestshot

I can never see statues of angels these days without thinking of a certain episode of Dr. Who...

Because playing Skyrim makes me want to join a guild of assassins ... or fight giant spiders ... or reassemble the fragments of the blade of an ancient and dark god ... or something.

What about a 5% tax against those who preach hatred against non-believers or anyone else they on,t approve of. It would get very expensive very quickly.

Seen in San Francisco - men in camouflage (not police?) arresting a protester, forcing him to the ground and securing his wrists with cable-ties. What the hell? Can anyone verify this or clarify what's going on? #OWS

+Michael Conner A good guess, but I don't recall any mention of the National Guard being called out.
