A couple of years ago there was a discussion about poverty and how poor people spend their money. Someone made a comment (or maybe linked to a comment they made elsewhere) about how it makes a certain kind of sense for people with very limited means to buy cigarettes since they were an appetite suppressant, an energy booster, a mood lifter, and a recreational activity. I would love to locate this comment again. Can anyone help me out? It was such good information.
Do you know of anyone that got "discovered" via MetaFilter? e.g. they were the subject of a FPP, which got the attention of a reader that then gave them a job. Or they got a writing contract because of their comments. Or a record label picked them up off Mefi Music. That sorta thing. [more inside]
If memory serves me correctly (which, you know, is a long shot) there was a post or a comment on Metafilter with a link to some of the common and spurious arguments about feminism and women who are doing feminism wrong according to men. I am hoping to find this link because I have foolishly decided to discuss feminism with some of my male friends who think that women have it all now. [more inside]

Many years ago (maybe 8?) there was a FPP about the owner of a cycling website who had passed away. [more inside]

I am just about to put together a keto Christmas meal of duck ceaser salad with all the trimmings including crispy duck-skin ‘croutons’. It’s a balmy 22 Celsius (@74 F) in my (east central) highland subtropical town although some in the south are sweltering under 35 degree heat (100 F) and there’s cyclone and tropical storm warnings for the north. What’s it like in your neck of the woods and at your single holiday table? [more inside]
MetaFilter has been an important part of my online life for closing in on two years now, and I'd like to wish everyone happy holidays as well as give other MeFites a forum for general well-wishing and/or holiday kvetching. I wish you all health and happiness!
