Approaching checkout date
As many of you know I have been fighting a long war with a rare cancer for the last few years. Unfortunately I'm now in the climactic battle scene of Saving Private Ryan. Overwhelmed by enemy forces. So if you see me stop posting you will know what happened. I want to thank everybody for all the feels, lulz and assorted bullshittery. It's made a tough time a little easier. And no +Capt Mak RET I'm not +Dirk Talamasca

I've disagreed with many GOP positions but I never realized they were actual traitors

This is so disheartening.  We seem to have the wrong people in power in this country.  We definitely need to wake up.

#NRA scumbags
Gabby Giffords, the former Arizona congresswoman grievously wounded in a 2011 shooting near Tucson that killed six people, returned to Capitol Hill this week to renew her push for legislation that would expand background checks for gun purchases to include gun shows and Internet sales. The legislation, a similar version...

"People that have worn the Watch say that they take their phones out of their pockets far, far less than they used to. A simple tap to reply or glance on the wrist or dictation is a massively different interaction model than pulling out an iPhone, unlocking it and being pulled into its merciless vortex of attention suck.

One user told me that they nearly “stopped” using their phone during the day; they used to have it out and now they don’t, period. That’s insane when you think about how much the blue glow of smartphone screens has dominated our social interactions over the past decade."

I mainly like the phone-freeing effect wearables have. I have a strong dislike for keeping my phone on me so I'm always contactable (have to be for my job, although that's changing somewhat :p)while I'm home; makes me feel not at home.

Pebble/AW/Apple Watch all undock you from your phone, at least in terms of phones calls and texts.

There are worse things than snow
"Ground zero: Midtown Manhattan. The fireball would vaporize the structures directly below it and produce an immense blast wave and high-speed winds, crushing even heavily built concrete structures within a couple miles of ground zero. The blast would tear apart high-rise buildings and expose their contents to the solar temperatures; it would spread fires by exposing ignitable surfaces, releasing flammable materials, and dispersing burning materials.

At the Empire State Building, Grand Central Station, the Chrysler Building, and St. Patrick's Cathedral, about one half to three quarters of a mile from ground zero, light from the fireball would melt asphalt in the streets, burn paint off walls, and melt metal surfaces within a half second of the detonation. Roughly one second later, the blast wave and 750-mile-per-hour winds would arrive, flattening buildings and tossing burning cars into the air like leaves in a windstorm. Throughout Midtown, the interiors of vehicles and buildings in line of sight of the fireball would explode into flames. "
Russian intercontinental ballistic missiles are believed to carry a total of approximately 1,000 strategic nuclear warheads that can hit the US less than 30 minutes after being launched. Of this total, about 700 warheads are rated at 800 kilotons; that is, each has the explosive power of 800,000 tons of TNT. What follows is a description of the consequences of the detonation of a single such warhead over midtown Manhattan, in the heart of New Yor...

The Krispy Kreme Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Doughnut 

Because +matthew rappaport posted about them being only available in the UK, and +Shannon Adelson wanted pictures, I went over to my local Krispy Kreme and picked up a few.

Now, let me tell you about them... The crispy, nutty chunks on the top add a very pleasant crunch to the beautifully smooth peanut butter within. The chocolate is sweet, with just enough of a bitter note to let you know it's good chocolate. The doughnut itself is soft and fluffy, with enough of a glaze that the sweetness permeates without becoming overpowering.

The experience is more than the sum of its parts; Krispy Kreme doughnuts are delicious, and Reese's peanut butter cups are delicious, but this marriage of the two is like eating a Reese's peanut butter cup on a cloud, floating in a clear sky... It's the ultimate Reese's experience!

It is the doughnut nirvana that is beyond even Homer Simpson's wildest dreams.

Worth a flight over from the US, I'd say!

For more information: http://www.techtimes.com/articles/39353/20150312/krispy-kreme-reeses-peanut-butter-cup-donut-here-cant.htm

Yes, they are that good!

Well, I agree with the first half of the article ... the fingerprint thing is pretty similar, and some of the hardware is pretty similar (although many of the quoted design cues come from well before both of those phones were even concepts).  But the part about the keyboard is pretty ridiculous:  the only similarity I can see is that they're both Qwerty keyboards.  If the author left out that part of the article, it would have been a much more effective argument.

Obama gave a great speech
In time, their chorus would reach President Johnson. And he would send them protection, echoing their call for the nation and the world to hear:

"We shall overcome."

What enormous faith these men and women had. Faith in God — but also faith in America.

The Americans who crossed this bridge were not physically imposing. But they gave courage to millions. They held no elected office. But they led a nation. They marched as Americans who had endured hundreds of years of brutal violence, and countless daily indignities — but they didn't seek special treatment, just the equal treatment promised to them almost a century before.

What they did here will reverberate through the ages. Not because the change they won was preordained; not because their victory was complete; but because they proved that nonviolent change is possible; that love and hope can conquer hate.


"What greater form of patriotism is there than the belief that America is not yet finished?"

I can see this being the case. While playing around with Android I purchased a Moto 360 and noticed the same thing. Being able to see who is calling/texting/emailing without digging out my phone was wonderful. And even better is being able to quickly interact with those notifications without getting out my phone. I get so many notifications that do not need to be addressed immediately and this will quickly identify those for me again without having to get out my phone. I see a pattern.

Can't wait to get my hands on one. And I actually used Google Voice on the 360 a lot more than I thought I would. It felt goofy at first, but then once I realized the convenience of it I didn't care. The closer it gets, the more excited it get.
