      What I recall from long ago about FB was that I had real life acquaintances who turned out to have an overriding interest in some topic which was of no interest. But because we were acquaintances, we were sort of stuck with each other. But on G+ I …

      My progress on that spreadsheet has been too slow, but I will make it editable now, in case anyone wants to explore it further . . . new link: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-wkmwrJfe_DkKV-XtPWo0619IAVz0oel_whHa1UFaEQ/edit?usp=sharing . . …

      I followed thousands on G+, but not as social contacts per se. Not to say these are accurate numbers, but to an approximation I post an average of about weekly or more - say ten days? And some people post even less - monthly? Then there are others …

      well, newspapers have always mixed topical coverage with featured columnists. I still read some online papers that have the features mixed. Individual readers have to skip over the columnists they don't follow I guess. My experience of G+ was of a …

      Brilliant. I arrived at G+ just before circle-sharing ended. I actively built up a stream from shared circles and started pruning to fit my interests. I was really disappointed they killed that option. But I am more of a consumer than creator …

      I would follow 500 people if I could. I can't look at 500 posts a day, but I loved the experience of hearing from hundreds of fascinating people on G+, and I surely could not imagine what all they would talk about on any given day. But - like …

      Yeah, meeting Gideon was one of the great things that came to me from G+; and there have been quite a few other friendships. They are friendships of a new kind - friendships with people I never met face-to-face but I think I "know" them. I think …

      On the morning of Christmas Eve, the valley below our house was filled with smoke as if the nearby village had burned! There were several small plumes of smoke still rising into the trapped valley-filling layer. There is a very popular tradition …

      I have a solar panel system and no utility connection, and I am retired; so we do not drive much (groceries twice per month), and there is hardly ever anywhere I'd rather be, so no need to fly there! But even before accounting for food or other …

      I started building a spreadsheet on this and it became huge and full of guesses very quickly. I was not even trying to make it general, just get some idea of the carbon footprint of the things with which I am already quite familiar. I will clean it …

      quality of life is an inherently individual issue: your choice of healthy diet over "yum" is based on your situation. A terminally individual might well choose the yum factor, and who could dispute it? Even issues of meat vs. vegetable might have …

      yeah, that is what I want to do: know how to make smart decisions: I guess we do it all the time in a qualitative way. We (wife is not looking, imperial 'we' is acceptable!) dry our clothes on the clothesline. If it is a rainy day, we don't do …

      I don't quite understand the graph. It looks like someone calculated emissions of various food types based on the amounts of those foods consumed, and they happened to consume a lot of lamb. If they divided the emissions by the consumption, and had …

      I have seen a number of "carbon footprint" calculators, and I have read there are many more. But the ones I have seen are simplistic. I mean, they contain a lot of information, but they all run into the problem that they are not complex enough. The …

      I sometimes have found the order in threads confusing - I am replying to your reply, so my comment should appear next to yours? Or will it appear in chronlogical order way down the thread? (answer: the latter) There is text showing that your reply …
