Cool dead seal story. March 16, 2007 5:01 PM   Subscribe

Just thought I'd point out this above average comment from yesterday's excellent post on Northern Elephant Seals, for those who may have missed it.

And it was a great first post by otherworldlyglow.

And yet another classic comment from robocopisbleeding is just a couple above the original link.

Reminds me of something.

Thanks for pointing that out, allkindsoftime. An interesting read.

Wow, thanks for the pointer—I'd skipped that thread, and I'd hate to have missed that comment.

Not sure why that isn't highlighted on the Metafilter sidebar instead of this comment that is. One favorite? Sidebarred? What gives?

"I think you better do something about that rancid pit of elephant seal blubber".

Thanks for pointing this out.

Apparently I misjudged the titillating effect that the idea of being pissed on by Steve Austin has on you guys. The number of favorites given to that post in the last few minutes are of bionic proportions.

Yeah, that's a serious WTF moment. Although I'm sure this comment will be up there shortly.

What statistical model are you basing this average on? Was it independently audited? I'd like to look at your raw data. I'm not saying it's not a great comment; I just want to know where the average is.

Good looking out.

Thanks to otherworldlyglow for the great post which triggered memories I should probably work on purging.

So wait... now the Lee Major Urination thread isn't on the sidebar. What happened? Did I just dream it?

Hey, wow! My first FPP and my first callout (sort of)! Woo-hoo! The funny thing is that for the first 24 hours after I posted, I was monitoring Metatalk like a fiend, worried that I did something wrong. I'd been biding my time, watching and reading Metafilter, wanting to post something but quite honestly, a little intimidated. And then once I finally found something interesting that hadn't been posted before, I was incredibly nervous about posting it. It was like a first piano recital or something. Now it's done though and I'm no longer a Metafilter virgin. And for those who encountered the dead link, I went back and found a better one.
