    Absolutely stunning. That is one beautiful country. I'm also really impressed by how high up and far out that drone went. Guess I should pick one up sometime soon.

    Absolutely. I've been on the technical preview on my home computer and my Surface Pro 2 since it came out. I haven't had any problems and it's been a great experience. MS really stepped up their game from W8. Looking forward to what they have in store after this first W10 release.

    I just wish the Windows Phone version was coming out around the same time, but I think it won't be until the end of the year unfortunately. Oh well.

    What it’s like to actually eat the food in Oakland County Jail

    "A former prisoner describes what it’s like to actually eat the food at a Detroit-area jail; the failings of Aramark, the company the Michigan Department of Corrections contracts for food service; and the thriving underground economy that supplements state-issued meals."

    Aww. :(

    Interesting read though. I hadn't heard of that before.

    The Internet is a bit of a big scary limitless place sometimes. I wonder what our lives would be like if the Internet hadn't become so mainstream; if it was just a kind of exclusive thing. I mean, you still get that feeling with smaller communities, but it's still intimidating at times. I wonder where we would have found opportunities to advance communication technologies if not for the explosive capabilities the Internet brought to the picture.

    I don't have my own recipe as I haven't done it for quite a while, but this pdf looks to be about the right procedure. I'll see if there's a good tribe for it tomorrow when I have some more energy.

    edit: also found this more extensive overview

    But yeah, basically you just harvest the fruits with gloves and tongs, rinse, cut open and take out pulpy stuff, blend, strain, refrigerate. Then you can make lemonade with it. If you're ever down in the Tucson area be sure to hit up Tohono Chul Park as they always have great prickly pear lemonade there. You can also buy jams and syrups from local artsy folk usually, as well as from gift shop type places.

    I think you can buy the prickly pear concentrate online if you're interested in giving it a shot!

    Thanks! I have a bunch of other pics on my phone still, maybe I'll add a few more to the snap tomorrow.

    Just looked it up and it looks like you're right, it would have been either bats or moths. It would have been interesting to watch that happen!

    But also I know this morning when I was out there, there were definitely some bees and smaller little insects that were able to get into the flowers before they closed up.

    I am interested but it appears I've run out of tribe slots. If I level up and get some more soon I'll be sure to add BotanicalPics into the list! Thanks for the suggestion!

    Can't speak to this particular one as I totally forgot to give it a sniff (well, and, still getting over a cold so I might not be able to smell much anyway), but some other cactus blossoms can smell really nice. We have a lot of prickly pear cacti around here. The fragrance from the blooms isn't particularly strong, but it's nice. Also the fruits taste really sweet; we make lemonade out of them.

    Saguaros have nice blossoms too but I'm afraid I've never been up high enough on one to smell it. :)

    I'll be honest, in my desire for pictures I completely forgot to smell it! I have a feeling there will be more that bloom tonight since there are a few other cacti out there. So I will go out in the morning and get back to you on that provided my cold is all better and I can properly smell again. :)

    Night-blooming cereus cacti [OC]

    These bloomed outside my house last night - luckily I was up early enough to get some pictures before they closed up! Not stunning pictures but I always enjoy AZ cactus flowers :) The third picture is rotated the wrong way for some reason; it works fine on my computer but it's rotating back to landscape on here. Sorry about that.

    Very pleased to see my city on the list. Hopefully it'll reach my house though; we've never been able to get cable internet because we're not serviced by ANY of the providers. We're in the middle of the city and no one can run a cable to our house. Hopefully this initiative will make that irrelevant.

    I think it'll probably take a really long time, buuuut it's progress at least.

    I never quite understood the mechanics of Bitcoin, so maybe someone can help me understand this. Why is it an "attack"? And why is it bad that there was this big transaction? Did it take down the network or hurt users somehow? I read through the whole article but I felt like the writer was taking for granted that everyone would know why this event was bad.

    I actually have some of these right outside my house. Living in 110-degree Arizona has its perks :)
