We had professional photos taken of our two pups a little over a year ago.

I hadn't heard of many of these places but they all look amazing!
If you live in the U.S., you don't need a passport to see what mother nature has to offer.

Pretty incredible shots.
Cory Richards' work combines discomfort and adventure and the results are sheer inspiration. In this stunning short, "A Tribute to Discomfort," National Geographic Creative photographer and North Face athlete Cory Richards collaborates ...

Google+ Hangouts for iOS: phone calls, animated GIFs, and more

Today we're updating Google+ Hangouts for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. The new app includes the recent Android improvements (http://goo.gl/gd3By1), as well as some new goodies for iOS:

- You can now make calls to phones from the iOS app, and calls to the US and Canada are free! You can dial internationally too (with super low rates), but you'll first need some calling credit: google.com/voice/m/credit.

- If you're a Google Voice user, you can make and receive calls from any of your iOS devices with today's update. Outgoing calls will come from your Google Voice number, and incoming Voice calls can be answered from Google+ Hangouts.

- Incoming messages will no longer stop your music. Instead of interrupting your groove, Google+ Hangouts will now temporarily duck your music, then crank the volume back up.

- Aaand… animated GIFs will now play in-line.

Today's release contains lots of features based on your feedback (seeing who's reachable right now, early integrations with Google Voice), but we're always working to make the app better. So give the new version a go (http://goo.gl/FDOfq), and let us know your thoughts!

Fascinating insight into the minds of the Republican base.
If you want to understand the government shutdown and crisis in Washington, you need to get inside the base of the Republican Party. That is what we are doing in the Republican Party Project and these focus groups with Evangelicals, Tea Party, and moderate Republicans.

Fascinating.
 
Why might diners take 65 minutes for a meal in 2004 but 115 minutes in 2014?

Here's a clue:

27 out of 45 customers asked their waiter to take a group photo. 14 of those requested the waiter retake the photo as they were not pleased with the first photo.
One of the most common complaints on review sites against us and many restaurants in the area is that the service was slow and or they needed to wait a bit long for a table.

This is a re-post of a fairly anonymous CL post, which has been since flagged for removal: http://newyork.craigslist.org/mnh/rnr/4562386373.html ... Do we believe this is real?

Hilarious prank video.
This absolutely amazing and terrifying prank, where a girl with telekinetic powers appears to freak out in a coffee shop, is actually a publicity stunt for the upcoming remake of the film Carrie. But that doesn't make it any less entertaining or awesome. Make sure you watch it all the way through, too, it just gets better and better.

The federal complaint is totally fascinating.

Totally crazy.
 
Fun with Peripherals 

Keep your eyes focused on the cross in the middle. These celebrity faces start to become completely distorted in your peripheral vision!
