21 Google Plus Circles You Can Actually Use

Like most internet people, I've been playing around with Google Plus for the last few weeks, and, like most internet people, I'm still trying to figure out how it works.

There are those things in life of which most of us will never tire. Like: seeing things that move super fast captured with high-speed cameras, or that funny thing that dogs always do where they turn their heads to the side, as if to say, "Say what?!"
