This was an example of something that's become more common lately, a post whose unwritten subtitle is "My google-fu is strong."

This post is another example of that. Google for "Saddam" and dump all the half-way reasonable links that turn up into a single MeFi post.

Yeah, there's a theme, and yeah, there are links. But that doesn't necessarily make for a good post.

Or "My You-Tube-fu is strong"; use the You-Tube search engine and dump all the videos that result.

(By the way, this YouTube genuinely is good.)

If you look at the times, it is more than twenty-four MetaTalk free hours, just not one calendar day.

On the subject of depressing and weird - I find it little bit weird when someone posts a "." in an obit thread and then proceeds to wax philosophical about that particular person's passing (I've probably even done this myself without thinking about it). I suppose things come to mean different things over time and it's no longer "I'm at a loss for words" but now a signifier of something completely different, but what is that different thing? Does "." now mean "Death is a real bummer"?

Now, now, it took over a minute to make sure that the post had the right number of dots. And the post is deleted, so it's a very small number of people who will be seeing this "depressing" post.

In all seriousness, it's simply a depressing fact. While I'm actually active in the antiwar movement and have had friends and family in Iraq -- so it's hardly the most significant thing I've done against the war -- I thought a 3000x sympathy note would be a lot more appropriate for the occasion than starting up a debate that would go nowhere.

Better living through genetic engineering! A new cash-crop hybrid has been developed which can be planted any time of the year. It can be harvested after just 2 months, vastly increasing annual yields per acre. It's resistant to herbicides and other nasty chemicals.

Eleven days ago is not exactly over the years. It's more like yesterday.

There are plenty of things posted in which I have no interest. Flash games, for instance, or any sort of computer games, for that matter. I don't care about sports. I don't demand that posts about computer games or sports be banned. I don't belittle people for their tastes in music when I do not share their tastes or make surmises about the mental states of people I do not know and have never met.

I don't make MetaTalk posts about what should or should not be posted--but I do make fun of people who do when their own latest MetaFilter post was one of the suckier posts ever made.

It's not exactly news around here that one link news stories have to really have some merit to make the bar. Posting one that isn't even news is just lazy beyond belief. Looking stuff up at least takes an iota or two of effort and forethought. People who can't even make the most minimal effort have little room to talk about people who do.

posted by mlis at 10:13 PM on December 31, 2006


y2karl, I don't hate on crap posts because of their subjects, but because of their construction. You know that. You are not a moron. Your later YouTube posts sucked ass because you just dumped link after link from generic searches on YouTube, and then you did it again and again. SCDB's frankenpot post sucked because it was a link to a shitty Fox News story, with no framing of substance. Stavros' recent post sucked because it was a poor copy-paste of a 3rd generation regex of a robot-crawled YouTube search, where most of the links were misleading.

I don't have a vendetta against videos that happen to be hosted by YouTube, or any specific subject for a post. I do tend to hate posts that are deliberately constructed — that are not found links. Also, links to poor tabloid journalism with no framing (FoxNews, The Register, any other British newspaper). Poorly made posts suck independently of their subject.

So then I got this idea about driving a cheesecake truck,
cuz I figured at the end of the day,
I could take some of the leftover cheesecakes home.
And I love cheesecake.

So I went to the cheesecake company
and they asked me if I could drive a truck and I said yes,
and they said 'You're hired!'

So the next day I got in the truck with all the cheesecakes
and I drove about a block and I just had to have a cheesecake
so I pulled over and opened the truck
and I got a cheesecake, and I also took one for later,
and I took one for my friend Farmboy,
and I took one to bring home,
and by that time I had eaten one of the cheesecakes
so I took another one.

Then I figured I might as well stop at my house
to drop off all the cheesecakes,
so I take five cakes to eat on the way,
and I drive another block and a half to my house.

Now it's lunch time so I eat ten cheesecakes,
and a cheesecake for dessert.
I should point out, by the way,
that all of these cheesecakes were very delicious.

Anyway, I decided that the only thing to do
would be to eat all the rest of the cheesecakes
and hide the truck somewhere
and leave town.

And I miss everybody a lot
but I'm not really sorry
because they were very delicious cheesecakes.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to going through Stav and Y2Karl's links once my girlfriend is back in LA and I'm all bummed out, looking for entertainment to console me. I can't say the same for the myriad of news links.

Oops! Had I known this would have upset people, I wouldn't have posted.

Well, that's no way to get anything done around here. You should keep in mind that there are people out there who are geniunely upset by puppies. Fuck 'em.

wowie, thanks for such kind words, y2karl, cgc373, and Alvy Amepersand - knowing that some people enjoy these posts is very motivating!

Aw, c'mon, mjj, you know there's a kajillion folks here who really dig your posts (and perhaps also how you're one of the most civil people on the site). I'm certainly one of 'em, as I've indicated in many comments to your threads. No false modesty, please! ;-)
