Alex Grossman56,667G+ Engagers CircleIt's been a while since I shared a circle, so here's a small circle of people I recommend following. They are great to engage with, full of energy and opinions and fun, with very little anger, disrespect, or poor manners. Hope you enjoy all of them as much as I do. They certainly make my time in G+ lots of fun. :)2013-08-22 03:31:187510711
Meirav M.7,705Meirav's 42some people have been sharing circles of 100, but me, I like smaller numbers. and seriously, as someone who has under 200 people circled in total, picking 100 would be way over the top. so I went for the obvious number of 42 :)These are not my top favourite 42 or my most relevant according to some algorithm or anything of the sort. And I will not tell you that they are the most wonderful people on earth, the creme de la creme of plusland, the greatest engagers or influencers or whatever managementspeak term is the word du jour. I'll be honest with you, as I tend to be when I'm not making up stories about penguins and stuff, and tell you the truth:These are all people I have had in my circles for a while and I like having them in my circles. They've grown on me. They've become part of my pluslife. I can't know if you'll also enjoy having them in your circles, because I'm not you and you're not me, we have different interests and different preferences and just as you might prefer a different ice cream flavour (I'm a Ben & Jerry's cookie dough gal) you are likely to find different people interesting or fun - but here's a circle of 42 people for you to try out if you would like to, and if you find that some of them are not quite your scene then you can always uncircle them. There's no "till death us do part" in plusland :)and no, you absolutely don't have to add them. It's just in case you are looking for more people to populate your stream.You are, in any case, welcome to cookies from the penguin's self-replenishing jar. We will always have cookies. #SharedCircles  2013-08-10 00:32:3242615

Dede King0The Fundie CircleIt's round. I've hand picked the ones I interact with not because they're relevant to me or because of what they post, but because I could pick them out of a line-up, state their name and at least one fact about them and they're generally wonderful people to know. The top 10 I'd probably bail out of jail and take a bullet for, but that's neither here nor there. One thing none of them can be accused of, is being soporific. As a disclaimer: Circle with caution or stalk quietly as the circle is filled with every type of G+ user that might not appeal to all tastes including:1. Photo fundies2. Meme fundies3. Gif fundies4. News link reshare fundies5. Art fundies6. Science fundies7. Music fundies8. Narcissistic fundies9. Selfie shot fundies10. Food fundies11. Passive-aggressive one liner vague posting fundies12. Contrarian fundies (not trolls, just opinionated)13. Long form post fundies14. Leg humper fundies15. Lastly, the G+ fundies (they know everything about G+ and will tell you how to Internet)16. High Voltage Noms (+A.V. Flox)17. Low Voltage Noms (+Jake Kern)18. Cat fundies (+Bobbi Jo Woods)19. Sine Wave Noms (+fan tai)It's not really a circle meant to be shared, just my way of saying hey to all of you that make this place worth while <3 No hard feelings if I forgot anyone, it happens. Have a wonderful day.2013-04-17 15:28:3834742831130

Marc Jansen29,662A circle of the people, by the people, and for the people (of my circles)Earlier today, I asked people to pick a number from 1-300 with the intent of coming back later and putting together a shared-circle that represented that input.After consolidating the data, I was left with 91 unique responses.  (Yes, I counted each and every number given to me, rounding where needed and substituting 1 for i, as it was as close as I could get.)I then selected the top 300+ people from my circles based up on relevance, and then removed those whom I know dislike being part of shared circles and a few folks who've apparently gone MIA, back-filling as need to get me back to 300, and then started matching names according to Google's relevance ranking with the 91 numbers you folks provided to me.So, I now present to you:  _a random selection of 91 of the top-300 people in my circles, chosen by you, the people IN my circles._This circle is made up of people and pages from all walks of life, and all corners of the globe, but they all have one thing on common - I found them interesting enough to circle, and they tend to be folks that I interact with on a fairly regular basis.(If you don't see your name here, do not blame me, by the way, I was completely impartial throughout this entire selection process.)2012-12-04 21:06:379230217

Alex Grossman27,422Last time I shared a relevancy circle was back in July. From then until now (October 19), it's only changed by 7 people, and most but not all of that was near the end of the list. So, it's remarkably consistent.These 99 users are on top of my relevance list (plus me since I'm relevant to myself, so a total of 100). I excluded Pages that were in there so as to only have people.Most of these folks are engaging with me through posts or comments (though some are clearly more by e-mail, such as a family member) and the Circle is definitely more accurate now than last time. Does the algorithm get better over time due to more data? I still suspect that as you go down you end up with a number of close calls in which the algorithm can go either way. If anybody has more details on the relevancy algorithm, I'd still be curious and interested to learn more about it.Anyway, these people are relevant to me and truly help me enjoy my time sharing, talking, discussing, and hanging out on G+. So, thank you to all of you :)TGIF and have a great start to the weekend!P.S. - Typical inconsistent G+ - I could share the Movie Lovers Circle earlier today with about 130 people being notified. However, by mid-morning I couldn't notify the 99 people in this Circle. Now, I can again. But it appears that instead of setting a limit on the number of people in a circle, maybe they've set a limit on the number of people you could notify in a set period of time? Very strange. If anybody has any clue as to why this is, please let me know.2012-10-20 03:24:2710023124

Alex Grossman27,364It's TGIF so hope you have a great day. Here's a Circle I thought I'd share today for Follow Friday - Movie Lovers Circle. This Circle is by request only and filled with people who love to talk about movies, all kinds, all genres, languages, you name it - the point is to have fun and share. If you're interested in joining in to the discussions, engaging with others, sharing and exchanging comments, please let me know and I can try and add you to this Circle (notification limits permitting). If you're a member of this circle, you agree to participate in a respectful manner. Due to the changing and, at times uncertain, notification restrictions Google has in terms of number of people you can notify with a post I've split this up into two Circle.

Someone, somewhere (well, more specifically, someone in their parents' basement somewhere in white privilege country) is, I feel certain, writing an angry screed against this "censorship" of Destructive's game.  They are wrong and they should feel bad about that.  A 3rd party electing not to sell a product is not censorship.

Well said.

Ok, this "Jade Helm" conspiracy bullshit has gone way too far.

At first it was just embarrassing, wondering if the Texas governor was so stupid as to believe it, or just pandering to the idiots who do.

Now it's gone way too far.

Listen up. This is one of the most offensive things I've ever heard about our troops. This requires you believe that our soldiers would fire on and arrest and detain citizens simply because of their political belief.

Anyone who thinks that has clearly never served a day in uniform or taken the oath of enlistment.

It requires we believe our soldiers and veterans are mindless automatons, with no comprehension of the Constitution we've sworn to uphold and defend, or of posse comitatus.

It has come to the point where this stupidity and arrogant ignorance will endanger lives. Without the ability to train in combat exercises, these troops won't be properly prepared.

These multi-state exercises aren't a new thing: they're a regular and nearly annual thing. Under every single President since it was easy to move our troops between states.

Quit making up lies about the honor and integrity of our troops, and try and remember that they are also citizens. Who vote.

And I hope every ass associated with spreading this bullshit is voted out in their next election, overwhelmingly by the AD and veterans from their respective constituents.

This is an interesting article to me primarily because it calls to mind the mega-floods that accompanied both the beginning and end of the Younger Dryas.  In general, climactic change happens slowly and gradually, but the results of a failing ice dam are neither of those things.

Way to keep it classy, North Carolina.

I'm the first one to decry people who park in disabled spots without plates/placards, but part of the reason you have those if you need them is not all disabilities are visible.

Apparently, not all genders are visible as veterans either.  http://www.wncn.com/story/27885839/female-veteran-shamed-for-parking-in-veterans-only-spot  And if you read the comments, it's full of women saying how this has happened to them or when they try to get veteran plates in their state, they meet with resistance because they are women.

Seems to me that we need multiple solutions here:

1) If a state issues veteran plates, that should be automatic and at little or no charge to actual vets, aligned with however the state does disabled plates (which also ought to be little or no charge although I have heard about some states making them expensive).

And if a state doesn't issue said plates, nobody ought to be making any assumptions based on who parks in these spots because you can't see what a veteran looks like.

2) If you've ever assumed in any circumstance that a given person is not a veteran (or any profession) because of their gender, check your bias and smarten up.  This goes extra for professions like armed services where people put their lives on the line for others.


I may be a peacenik but I show veterans a hell of a lot more respect than whomever wrote this note.___Way to keep it classy, North Carolina.

These twelve items have two important things in common:

(2) They have absolutely nothing to do with autism.

Lead is a heavy metal which melts at low temperatures. It's used in large batteries like the ones in your car, as well as as a stabilization weight and radiation shield. It can be poisonous if you ingest it, though, so be careful! (The #1 safety risks in most radiation labs is actually accidental lead poisoning from the shielding equipment)

Fluoride is an ion of the Fluorine molecule. It's critical for human health: without it, your teeth will decay and fall out.

These twelve items have two important things in common:

(1) They're important and valuable things, and

Fluoride is an ion of the Fluorine molecule. It's critical for human health: without it, your teeth will decay and fall out. In some places, it's found naturally in local foods and water, but in other places, it gets added to reservoirs or table salt instead. Water fluoridation is considered one of the ten greatest public health achievements of the 20th century, and is a major reason why people today have healthy teeth. It was also believed by some to be part of a Communist plot to corrupt the Purity of Essence of our Precious Bodily Fluids. (And yes, people describing the plot Liked to Capitalize Things)

Antibiotics are probably the single greatest public health improvement of the twentieth century: they're drugs which can give our immune system the capability to fight off bacterial infections. Without them, common diseases like strep and TB will simply kill you. However, antibiotics do nothing against viruses. In fact, if you don't have a bacterial disease, or take only part of a course, antibiotics are dangerous: they'll kill just the bacteria which were most vulnerable to them, leaving behind the strongest and most resistant ones to breed! Overuse of antibiotics has resulted in the development of many strains of bacteria which are resistant to even very powerful antibiotics, leading to the fear that we may soon be vulnerable to these diseases again. The most important things you can do are (a) don't ever pressure a doctor to prescribe them when they aren't appropriate, and (b) fight their overuse in ranching, where they're given as prophylactics to otherwise healthy animals -- thus breeding deadly resistances.

Vaccines are antibiotics' competitor for greatest public health victories. They're small doses of dead or weakened viruses which are injected into you, letting your immune system learn to recognize and destroy the real ones when they come. They're the reason that so many of the deadliest diseases of the past -- smallpox, measles, pertussis, and the like -- are things of the past. However, unscrupulous folks have tried at times to convince the public that these are dangerous (generally as part of a scheme involving lawsuits), and as a result, some people are avoiding them! This can cause many other people to die, because of what’s called herd immunity. You can learn more about vaccines from this great comic:
https://medium.com/the-nib/vaccines-work-here-are-the-facts-5de3d0f9ffd0

Pesticides are chemicals which kill pests which destroy crops. These are a dangerous, but important, tradeoff: their residues can be poisonous, especially if they accumulate in groundwater; they can kill insects which are not just beneficial, but critical, like bees; and their misuse can lead to monoculture, which we’ll talk about in a moment. On the upside, they greatly increase crop production, and have been a major factor in ending starvation. They can also kill insects like the tsetse fly and malaria mosquito which are major vectors of disease. Together, this makes them a powerful lifesaving tool which has to be carefully managed.

GMOs are any sorts of organisms whose genes have been modified. This is a blanket term for a wide range of things, from corn that produces additional nutrients, to wheat that can grow in a wide range of climates, to goats which can produce antibiotics in their milk (!), to crops which are immune to certain pesticides and herbicides. “GMO” is a term for the technique which produces all of these. Some of these are huge benefits, but some of them are dangerous: for example, herbicide-resistant crops can be doused with huge doses of powerful weed-killers. In addition to their normal risks, this creates what’s called a “monoculture,” where only one species of plant can survive. This can make an entire crop vulnerable to a single blight, so it’s extremely dangerous for food security. Also, many companies who make such products are known for unethical business practices, so many people hear “GMO” and think of them. But don’t be led astray! GM is a technique which saves lives, too.

Balloons may make you think of things at birthday parties, but they’re also the best way to get high into the stratosphere. Weather balloons, made of modern materials like mylar and kevlar and filled with Helium, can fly over 100,000’ above the ground fairly cheaply, making it possible to understand weather patterns in places where satellites can’t be. They were also the way the recent record-breaking skydivers got up: you can watch +Alan Eustace's record-breaking jump at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AsftfzBrVko. In the process of doing this, he and his team invented several new technologies which should make flight safer, balloons cheaper, and more.

Tubesocks are long socks which can protect your shins. More important than protection, they wick moisture away from your feet, which are some of the heaviest sweat-producers in your body: they can produce as much as a quarter-pint of sweat each day. By moving the moisture away, they can protect you from frostbite in the cold, and fungi like athlete’s foot in the heat.

Testicles are the organs in which sperm is produced in male animals. They’re also important glands, producing hormones such as testosterone which help regulate bodily function. They hang outside the body in most land mammals in a sac called the scrotum, because sperm production works best when the testes are kept below body temperature. Because your body considers them pretty important, they’re therefore covered with nerves to quickly tell if something’s wrong. That means that you don’t want to hit them, but that they often enjoy gentle touch.

Bunnies, also known as rabbits, are small mammals with big ears. They’re shy herbivores, depending for their survival upon their ability to hear and quickly run away from prey – but also on their ability to reproduce quickly, so that their groups can sustain losses and keep going. Most species of rabbit live in burrows, often networked together to form a warren. People’s opinions of them are split: some people raise them for food or fur, while others love them as pets. They can also turn into a plague, as happened when they were introduced into Australia: feral rabbits caused tremendous damage to agriculture and local species. You can see many pictures of bunnies at http://goo.gl/FVlVJD.

Strippers are a kind of sex worker. Most famously, they perform erotic dances (often using a fixed pole as a prop) for an audience. But most of their work takes the form of one-on-one interaction with patrons, performing individually for them in settings from the public (such as table dances) to private rooms. Strippers will create one or more personas for this, working to create a fantasy environment for the patron in which they feel aroused, appreciated, and at the center of attention. Many strippers travel from city to city around the year, as the best business is often found in different places at different times. The most important thing to remember about strippers is that, while they may be playing any number of roles that seem different, they are professional entertainers and should be treated with respect.

Dromedaries are the famous “one-humped camels” of the Sahara and Arabian deserts. Their two-humped Bactrian cousins live further east. Dromedaries are known for their incredible ability to store water in their bodies, allowing them to travel across the entire desert. Unlike horses, they have paws rather than hooves, which gives them excellent traction on difficult terrain. As a result, they are highly valued as pack and riding animals, and camel racing is a major sport. Dromedaries were what made the Spice Road and the western part of the Silk Road possible, and they continue to be an important way to transport people and goods across the desert to this day.

So next time someone shows you a list like this, think through all of the various items in them and realize all of the ways in which they’ve made our world a better place. Some of them, like pesticides and bunnies, involve tradeoffs which you need to manage carefully; others, like antibiotics and vaccines, simply need to be used correctly to make the world a better place.

I was going to say that The Talos Principle may be the best puzzle game built in a 3d engine since Portal, but that's nonsense because The Talos Principle simply is the best puzzle game built in a 3d engine since Portal.  No contest.  That aside, I rather dislike comparing this game to Portal.  While the two share some minor puzzle mechanics, they really couldn't be more different in every other way. Seriously, if you're even mildly into puzzle games, buy this.  You will not spend a better $36 this Christmas.  Thanks so much, +Croteam and Devolver Digital!

Not the usual from Deadspin, but oh, so funny.  My favorite commentary thus far:

Drew Says: Don't fall for BIG SPOONULA's sales pitch. You don't wanna try to ladle soup into a bowl using the world's shallowest spoon. It's like trying to carry a martini glass across a minefield. No, thank you. I will use a spoon for spooning and a spatula for spatula-ing. A spoonula is only useful for the ultra-light brand of BDSM that your standard New Canaan housewife shows an interest in once every three years or so. Get that spoonula out of my face.

I think Ken White has made an almost scarily salient point about the increase in the violence of the police state.  A great read if you care about your own rights, safety and life and those of others.

Found this article very interesting.  Not actually interested your (whoever you are) political opinions about it, so be forewarned, friends, pedantry and soapboxing will be removed without comment.  Just suggesting that it's an interesting read (and also the best subtitle I've seen all year).

Must not spend...money...must...not...

Use their generator to create a miniature figure or statuette. Save it. and they will send it off to shapeways and print it out for you, in rpg miniature size, 3 inch figure or 6 inch statuette sizes.

Now think on this for a second, unbelievable amounts of customization and complexity, through a simple online program, that leads to a solid object being shipped to your house in a few days (at this time)

What happens when we do this with more practical things... like shoes?___Must not spend...money...must...not...
