According to the responses to this AskMe question
, MetaFilter is home to 15+ regular users who score at least three standard deviations away from the mean on IQ tests (in the positive direction). And, moreover, these extraordinary savants monitor AskMe systematically enough to pick out questions relevant to their stratospheric intellects, and they are happy to discuss their lot (some via sock puppets). I think that we, the MeFi userbase, should be proud to share the company of so many outstandingly gifted individuals, and that this is truly one of the things that makes MeFi such an extraordinary online community.

In the cold open of the Don't Trust the B episode "Dating Games," the titular character says, "I'm sorry, my friend wants to apologize for the boringness. To make up for it she'll show you her taters." Was this a coincidence or is there someone working MeFi in-jokes onto the show?

From time to time, people who are the topic of a thread register and participate in the conversation. I was looking for some kind of list in the Wiki and didn't find anything. So I searched through tags and found these: newmember
. Anywhere else?

Welcome MeFi's own Jeff Vandermeer
, who says he's just popping his head in on Scattercat's post
on The Weird, but it would be lovely if we could entice him to stay.

Set your Tivos: Metafilter's OwnTM Chance Ruder,
will be on Larry King Live tonight with talk-show-wildlife-guy Jack Hanna. Chance's contribution to Metafilter history was cemented when he provided this
best answer over in the green and then successfully fought off accusations
that he didn't actually exist. Having overcome this existential crisis, Chance is now poised to become a Television Personality.

It's The Old Problem: You Never Know Who Your MeFi Buddy Is
- but MetaFilter's own Mr Skallas has devised a cunning quiz
that just might help you find that difficult-to-locate alter ego
you've secretly been searching and, indeed, yearning for. Or, if this is not the case, which fellow member has unconsciously been influencing your every word. The rat! [To avoid disappointment, note that this will not tell you, as iconomy's questionnaire did, which MeFi user's posting style you most like - rather it will quite precisely identify which Metafilter user you are most like. Enjoy!
