The only things that I ever see on Google+ are +Life at Google posts, and +Drew Blomquist's cats. I guess I'm kind of okay with it.

"Though all to ruin fell the world,
and were dissolved and backward hurled,
unmade into the old abyss,
yet were its making good, for this -
the dusk, the dawn, the earth, the sea -
that Lúthien for a time should be."
---Song of Parting, J.R.R. Tolkien

"[...]Perhaps the most revolutionary aspect of the proof was its length: before the Feit–Thompson paper, few arguments in group theory were more than a few pages long and most could be read in a day. Once group theorists realized that such long arguments could work, a series of papers that were several hundred pages long started to appear. Some of these dwarfed even the Feit–Thompson paper; Aschbacher and Smith's paper on quasithin groups was 1221 pages long."
