Best Metafilter posts for outsiders?

I have, over the years, tried to convince IRL friends of the awesomeness of metafilter. But getting them interested is daunting- there is so much history and culture here. Any given day the front page posts are good; but if you're not familiar with the site, can seem like just a collection of links with discussion. So what threads/posts/discussions do you use to really show off metafilter to people unfamiliar with it? Are there any standout posts you use time and again to people unfamiliar with metafilter? This isn't the best metafilter posts, exactly, as some of the best posts jusdged by mefites may be too culturally specific to hook someone on the outside looking in. [more inside]

Membership uptick thanks to R*****'s troubles?

Have the recent troubles at another social media site led to an uptick in our own membership as folks ragequit / rageadd other sites to their browsing experience? Have folks been welcoming new members? What do the new members think about the site? Have they learned to avoid the searing light of the professional white background?

How open are meetups to new members?

How open are meetups to new members? I'm curious about showing up, but am not an established mefite by any means and don't want to walk into a group of strangers and break up their vibe.
