An interesting take on why you shouldn't use +TripAdvisor​ for finding a place to eat! (Don't follow the tourists.)
 
Why I avoid +TripAdvisor when searching for a restaurant on the road. +Map Happy 
TripAdvisor shouldn't be your first choice when looking for a place to eat. That's because it's the last place locals go to post reviews of restaurants.

There's only two things certain in life: death and airport taxes.
If you’ve spent all your Philippine pesos before you leave the airport, you’ll be in for a rude surprise on the way out: It’s called the airport depa

VPN, anyone? Plus, we've got a discount for +WiTopia.
 
Netflix on a stick.
When there’s a will, there’s a way. And even though technically Netflix isn’t available outside America, there’s certainly a way. We even have a di

Google is like God.

The guy made some terrible decisions, and I understand that he was from a broken home, but ultimately we do judge people by their decisions - just look at any front page on a newsstand. This is exactly the kind of guy the media would normally demonise, but on acquiring victim status he's lauded as a civil rights hero to equal MLK (as spotted in the HuffPo comments). If only more people had your more subtle perspective, we might move forward on these issues, rather than instantly judging people saints or sinners. But it's happened again just this year, with the Trayvon Martin case...

Well, almost anything.
The general rule of thumb is, lighter is better. And if you can't follow that rule, at least follow this guide. Is it possible to smash a pair of heels
