What your favorite map projection says about you.

Mercator? "You're not really into maps."
Gall-Peters? "I hate you."

"We felt very nice and snug, the more so because it was so chilly… because truly to enjoy bodily warmth, some small part of you must be cold."

Panic on the streets of London. I'm huddled in the front room with some shell-shocked friends, watching my city burn. The BBC is interchanging footage of blazing cars and running street battles in...

"Like football hooliganism, the violence was recreational - a day out in a Nitzschean theme park."

Can anyone recommend some good 'Sparks' for exploring?

I've set mine to find TED talks, so whenever new ones are posted I can have a flick through.

Sigh. This looks rather special - I do love the Sir John Soane's Museum.
Twenty of the rarest and most beautiful of Francois Fouquet's architectural models are on view at Sir John Soane's Museum in London.

Some very good ideas for circles from swissmiss. I am yet to create a 'dead to me' circle, but my Family circle may need to be re-named 'family who'll never comprehend Google+'

Very good at childrens' hairdressing - friendly, efficient and reasonably priced. Would travel there again from Newcastle - great staff who are professional, adaptable and great with kids. Did run a little late (10 minutes), but nothing was too much trouble.

Very good coffee, beautiful fit out and a quiet spot in an interesting corner of Toon.

A great practice - best in Toon. The receptionists are all rude/nasty, but the medical team are great. Lots of useful features including online appointment booking a.d waiting room WiFi. The breadth of things offered, from the nurse practitioner to family clinics for pregnancy and babies, mean our family are staying put.

Charming indie hidden in central Nottingham. Great food, interesting events, and strong social justice background. Didn't get to try Gin caves downstairs, but had a delicious dinner and interesting drinks. Friendly place with history and a conscience.
