rolling in the deep

An Ask me post from 2011 was quoted in New York Magazine's The Cut this week as part of an article titled, "Are Toilet Bowls Truly Too Short for Some Men’s Junk?"

MetaThanksgiving

It's Thanksgiving in America, a day to give thanks, spend time with family, friends, & loved ones and share a warm meal. 2018 has not always been the most easy of years to live through, I thought it'd be nice to have a place to share thanks, to acknowledge that we made it another year on this planet, that we did it together. I'm thankful for my family, my friends, my partner, and all of you. I'm thankful that MetaFilter exists. Cheers.

146: GO VOTE

It's a remarkably short one this month—just over 50 minutes—because my throat was sore in what turned out to be the preface to a nasty cold that knocked me out all weekend, which is why we recorded this last week and it's only going up to day! But here it is! Also, vote!

Modern Icon-Style Art on Panel

There was an AskMe a few months ago asking about (I think) contemporary religious art, and someone suggested this monk who makes Greek Orthodox icon-style art. It was awesome and I want some! Anybody remember the post? Thanks!

For a Magical Society by any other name would smell as sweet

Come ye animists, witches, polytheists, neoplatonists, hermeticists, and wizards! Come cunning folk, sorcerors, enchantresses, and charmers. Come pagans and wiccans and esoteric philosophers! Let's share our learning, wisdom, book choices and internet finds!

MST3K Turkey Day 2018

What we've done the past couple of years is set up the MST Club video sharing room (at https://cytu.be/r/Metafilter_MST3KClub) and embed Shout Factory's official stream of the event there, so we can watch it with other MeFi members and our own chatroom instead of the rapidly-scrolling chat of Twitch/Youtube MSTies. We plan on doing that this year too, BUT NOTE, the official event is this Sunday, November 18th, not on Thanksgiving Day like years past! AND it looks like it's going to consist of ALL OF NEW SEASON 12! For more, look inside....

Proposed Ask MeFi Guideline Addition/Flag Reason

Proposed addition to Ask Mefi guidelines, removal FAQ, and flags: "questions for which a layman's answer is dangerous." There are occasionally situations where it can be inaccurate and potentially dangerous to crowdsource an answer.

History in Real Time (plus a century)

Four and a half years ago, doctornemo posted The shots heard round the world., a commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the assassination that would plunge Europe into World War I. Yesterday, doctornemo posted “It is 11 o’clock and the war is—”, a commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the ceasefire that ended World War I.

California wildfire check-in

California people check in, please. My sister and nephew live in Chico, but they evacuated. The pictures of Oakland looked smoky--I can't imagine what it's like trying to breathe in Chico!

There used to be an affiliate link at the bottom of the "funding page"....has it gone away, or am I missing it?

MeFi Holiday Card Exchange Planning

Who's up for sending more cards for the holidays? (Or receiving!) I plan on coordinating another card exchange this year, if there is interest - I enjoyed receiving cards from MeFites so much last year!

John Hodgman Mentions MetaFilter

Author, actor, avatar of the PC, sometime Daily Show guest, former This American Life contributor, and current internet/podcast/New York Times judge John Hodgman has mentioned (called out?) a particular blue website on his Twitter account. We are a convenient tool to be used in mocking Mitt Romney’s stern disapproval of the political situation:
Whoa. Powerful tweets continue to stack up in opposition to the president! If Trump isn't careful, I bet these portraits of unwavering courage might post something to metafilter next! As the coup de grace, Ben Sasse will whisper his deep concerns into an empty coffee can.
It’s always nice to get mentioned by a famous person, even if only to acknowledge that posts, like all works of art, are useless.

What are comment threads for?

What's the point of linking comment threads to a specific fpp? Is it so that we specifically discuss the links in the post? Or is it to have an open thread on the sort of general topic of the post, links be damned? Do you flag comments that don't seem to be engaging with the links in a post? Do you flag comments that comment on other comments that don't seem to be engaging with the links in a post? Both? Neither? If someone interprets a comment of yours as an uninformed spit take, how would you want your comment dealt with? By flagging? Addressed in the comment thread? If the latter, how?

Mefi Card Club Appreciation part II: Electric Boogaloo

The Card Club sign-ups were a while ago and we had an old appreciation thread several months ago, but what's new? Has everyone been enjoying sending letters? Got any good stamps? Any issues that should be discussed? Just want to squee about mail? Then this is the thread for you! Technically the old appreciation thread is still open, but the last comments were in August so I figured we were due for a new one. All the thanks to the all mighty and powerful Fig for setting this in motion and keeping everything running smooth!

Vote. Vote. Vote. Vote.

Today is Election Day in the United States for the 2018 mid-terms. Thought it'd be nice to have a place to check-in and let us know you voted. Vote. It's important. Go vote. Vote. VOTE.
