I had a huge Eurovision post written and ready to post that I was saving for this evening. Then this was posted.
I do feel a bit frustrated by this, but it's a good post, just not the post I wanted to make. Details inside. [more inside]
is a pretty sharp piece on how the constructed media of hipsters ends up displacing more salient criticism (including a good line about how obsession with limning the "hipster" has removed "counter" from "counter-culture").
What's the discussion? Immediately, it starts out with the same old hipster tropes of MeFi with too many folks who clearly haven't read the fucking article. [more inside]
Back on April 20--three full weeks ago--I saw this AskMe about Sherlock/Watson fanfic
, and idly clicked on it. Then I followed a few links, because why not? I'm a curious sort of person. [more inside]
Last night I dreamt that some guy found out some supersecret information about the servers that Metafilter runs on and was going to blackmail us! [more inside]
I'm referring to this
question and this
response. Look, Unified Theory, I'd like to give you the benefit of the doubt here, and assume that maybe you didn't read the entirety of a rather long and rambly OP. And I actually agree with parts of your post - I hated the way the question was phrased as well, and I agree that the assumption that it's automatically creepy for an older guy to be attracted to a younger woman is both sexist and ageist. And,
I agree with the many other posters stating the the OP that she handled the situation in a very naive way, and needs to give serious thought to how she sets her own boundaries in situations like this.

Good evening. I am considering the purchase of an account on MetaFilter for my fiancee. She may find it of use for work (academic librarianship, cataloging), domestic (cats, pies) and leisure; I've sent her pointers to FPPs on here which she has found of interest, and she may be able to contribute questions and comments to AskMe.

So tomorrow marks the three month anniversary of this post
wherein a group of us banded together to form a corporation in everybody's favourite game to read about but never play, EVE Online.
This is just an update on what's gone on in New Eden since then, and an invitation to make the leap from reading to playing, and come join us

I just started using a Nike+ FuelBand bracelet, and I am wondering if other Nike+ using Mefites would be willing to become "friends" so that we can support/motivate one another. We would be able to see one another's fitness progress, and it could be a friendly competition/motivator.
According to Nike, to be able to add one another, we would have share our Nike+ username, email, or our real names.
I'll go first: my Nike+ username is 4ster4.
Thanks in advance for your help, inspiration, and motivation!
