Jokes, as far as the eye can see…

Please help me find a fantastic thread full of mefites' best jokes! That is unfortunately all I have to go on. I don't particularly remember the timeframe, and I assume the question was something like "Tell me your best joke," but my search is not turning up anything useful.

Dance post

A few years ago, someone had posted a video on the blue of a woman's progress as she learned to dance, starting with clumsy steps and eventually showing an impressive routine (in front of a subway car, if memory serves). I've searched for this under every search item I could think of, but nothing turned up. Please hope me…?

Sixteen Years

After 16 years of doing a bit of everything under the sun here, I’m stepping away from the day to day of running MetaFilter and moving into the background. Never fear, I’m leaving it in the best of hands and things are looking good for the future.

This Pony Wants A Job

Right now, it looks like you can make unlimited posts of jobs in the "jobs" section, but you can only post one notice of availability that has to stay forever and can't be changed or added to or bumped up or otherwise flagged that "Hey, I'm still looking". Can something about that?

Quick FanFare Updates

We made a couple changes to FanFare today. We added a show, movie, and podcast search to the front page sidebar. For movies we added links to buy or watch a particular movie at Amazon (if it's available). And we updated how movies are posted.

#WomensMarch Discussion / Support thread

The last #WomensMarch MetaTalk thread has closed; I would like one open to discuss what's happening, and if anyone needs to throw out a question.

Should have just checked here first.

Twice in the past month I've sought information on the wider web only to find that the answer was here all along. Turns out that noise in my head is my tensor tympani muscles flexing and that someone else had a question about that line from L&O:SVU a decade ago (they really did need a warrant to arrest someone in his own home). So: what cool things have you left MeFi to find, only to find them back here on MeFi?

RIP Bill Zeller

It's with great sadness that I have to share the passing of Bill Zeller, known as null terminated around here.

I want to collect all of these!

Is there anything you wish you had known when you were 18? What did you wish you knew when you were 20? What do you wish you'd known when you were 21? What advice would you give your 25-year-old self? What are your 30s like? What advice would you give to your thirty-year-old self? What do you wish you had done when you were 30? What advice would you give your 40 year old self?

Given this FPP about reddit's racism, and with the notion presented in that thread here, I'd like to float the idea of a blanket ban on links to reddit on the Blue.

So, what would be the fallout of a MeFi security breach?

Are my embarrassing anonymous questions permanently associated with my regular account? I think I used a credit card to pay for my registration; is my credit card information (and thus real name and address) still on record?

Survey about sexual orientation of surveyor changing results

A while ago on the Blue (I think) I saw an article about an experiment done where the people giving the survey would either make some comment that indicated they were homosexual or not, and the results of the survey changed based on that. I can't find this article now, when I have a speech on LGBT rights.
