Apparently, Google+ thinks I'm secretly a Belieber :(

Running full speed at a stationary object? No problem. 
Doing crazy flips and twists on a 4 inch beam that's 4 feet above the ground? I can do that in my sleep.
A bee in my bouquet? Dafuq?!!?! I'm outta here!!!!

But seriously, Simone, Larisa, and Kyla's reactions to the bee are hilarious.

I meant to post this yesterday, but I didn't have any signal at the state fair. Anyway, this was our lunch-the 'fun bucket.'. It contains 2 deep fried fish fillets, 3 deep fried shrimp, 3 deep fried zucchini, and French fries. We decided to also get a side of deep fried green beans, to make ourselves feel healthy. Basically, this is a heart attack in a cute, purple pail.

I tried the deep fried Nutella from this stand at the California State Fair.  I think they had a frozen Nutella brick that they battered and deep fried.  I'm still recovering from the sugar high...

+Nick White and I were playing 8-ball, and the 2 ball is my last ball before I can shoot the 8 ball.  And this is what Nick left me with.  I'm currently filing divorce papers as I type this :P

I've recently been inspired to try learning origami again.  I remember seeing origami roses and being amazed by how realistic they looked, and wanting to make them myself.  So I did some research and found the set of instructions below.  I never got past the 2nd page... :(

I've always loved Dolly's ability to entertain not just with her music, but with her personality and stage presence.  And also the fact that she decided to play Yakety Sax in Glastonbury to a huge English crowd.

This seems similar to what WeHo did for pride.  I think if SF wants to be different, they should do paint an entire street with the rainbow pattern.  Even better, they should find a curvy, guardrail-less bridge and paint that, and then see all the cars fall off the side, and then call it Rainbow Road...

Went without my phone for almost 4 hours and 30 minutes. Worth it for a good cause.

This is sort of cool.  Go to the URL on your phone and it'll prompt you with some info about the project and how to begin.  Basically, for every 10 minutes you don't touch your phone, you will provide one day of clean water for a child in need.

Nerd moment: discussing machine names that fit our ST:TNG theme. We already added "spot" (data's cat), so +Jerry Liu suggested Targ, that klingon pet. Also on the table: "Lal" (Data's short-lived daughter), "Ogawa" (the nurse). 

Not acceptable (for length or spelling reasons) are Jerry's suggestions of "Crystalline Entity" and "Lwaxana"...

We were lucky to get a reservation at é by Jose Andrés on Saturday.  I knew that it would be an intimate setting with only 8 seats.  What I didn't know was that the chefs would be on the other side of the bar prepping the food for us, so we got to interact with them.  They really like foam and spheres...

At the state dinner with the French President:
"""
Ms Louis-Dreyfus, who plays the vice-president in the television comedy series Veep , sat next to US vice-president Joe Biden.
“Look who I’m sitting next to,” she told reporters when asked what her favourite part of the dinner was.
“Hey, stop screwin’ around, she’s my date,” said Mr Biden, interrupting, before laughing. “Just kidding,” he said.
"""
I'm such a Joe Biden fan.

[super nerdy question] Anyone know what a typical bitrate of 4k video would be using VP9? My attempts to google this keep leading to layperson articles. It seems based on the spec that you should get reasonable quality out of 10Mbps, but I'd love to hear what youtube is encoding videos as, for example.

We're planning on bringing our cats to Reno, where there's snow.  We want to see if Jack would love the snow, since he constantly wants to jump in the freezer.  Admittedly, we wouldn't provoke Jack by kicking snow at him, but still...

Found this old photo from 2005, and I honestly can't remember where we are.  I'm relying on +Cara Ogburn or +merak zimmerman to figure this one out :P

So I'm late to the whole "What Does the Fox say?" video (Ylvis - The Fox (What Does the Fox Say?) [Official music video HD]).  So when +Nick White and I saw this on SNL, we had no idea it was a parody of that song.  I also need to refrain myself from randomly saying "Who dat, who dat, who dat bitch" :)

  • Nick White

    Software Engineer at MyLikes, undergrad at MIT, PhD dropout from USC, formerly at Google.

  • Jerry Liu

    Jerry is a Professional Panda Hugger. When he's not cuddling a baby panda, he works on Operations and Customer Service at MyLikes.

  • Kitty

    Kitty sat down in front of the door to a friend's apartment back in 2005, but she couldn't keep her. We couldn't say no. Kitty is very sedate and happy to sunbathe or curl up in a warm lap. Though, she is very picky about which humans she likes.

  • Captain Jack

    We got Jack in 2010 from the LA Shelter. They claimed he was 8 weeks old, but based on his fur and weight, he was probably closer to 6 weeks. He's a mutt, but shows a mix of tabby and possibly bengal. He's completely insane and acts like a puppy, particularly to Nick.
