Card Club Happiness

I just returned to the US for the summer and was delighted to have a stack of 'real' mail waiting for me- most of it from you.

Reconsidering the rule against friend-linking on the MeFi front page

We're gonna try allowing friend-linking on the front page of MetaFilter—that is, linking to stuff on the web made by someone you are friends with or have a personal connection to. Come on inside and I'll talk about why, and lay out some expectations and guidelines.

MetaParanormal πŸ‘»πŸ›ΈπŸ‘½

Nearing the end of another week, let's talk about something else that is not related to politics. Let's talk about supernatural phenomenon, things that cannot be easily explained, (ghosts, UFOs, aliens, Bigfoot, chupacabras, telepathy, etc.). Have you ever experienced something like this? If so, please share with the rest of the community. Or maybe you firmly disbelieve in things like this and that's totally cool too. As always, be kind to yourself and to others. The truth is out there.

Nearing the end of another week, let's talk about something else that is not related to politics. Let's talk about fruit. What is your favorite fruit to eat? Do you cut it a certain way? Do you grill it? Do you chill it? Do you add anything to your fruit to make it taste better? Are there certain fruits you avoid or dislike? Let's get fruity. As always, be kind to yourself and to others.

IRL pony request: participant notification

The creator of an IRL event has the option to be notified by email when a comment is added to the post. How much trouble would it be to add notifications to those who are attending (including Maybes)? Is this something others would find useful?

Metatalktail Hour: Warm Weather Food

Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! This week, it's finally warming up in Chicago, so I want to know what you like to cook and eat when it's warm outside! (Because by a month into summer I am bored of all my warm-weather recipes so clearly I need more of them!)

FeelGoodFilter

I’m here to propose that we pursue a season of fun and non-controversial posts on MetaFilter. Let’s fill up the Blue with the interesting, the comedic, the curious, the lengthy disclosure… the topics which are posted to share something groovy and/or interesting and not posted to stir up the grar.

Communicating Wordless Appreciation

the β€œ.” is what we use in posts that memorialize people who have passed on as a way to signal β€œI’m at a loss for words” and it also signals β€œI’m here”. Is there also a use for a signal we can use in everyday posts that signals β€œI don’t have anything to add as a comment but I totally appreciate this”?

Metatalktail Hour: Childhood Objects

Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! This week, kristi wants to know "What objects do you still have from your childhood - especially things that don't have any particular sentimental value? I happened to notice I have a pair of scissors that I'm pretty sure were bought for me to use in grade school. I have no special attachment to them; they just seem to have stayed with me through the years."

"See if you can start a filibuster"

"Life is like politics: 10% getting things done. 90% exploiting loopholes." That's the summary of a classic Peanuts strip, now colorized. This is the latest hyucking hyuck thread.

MeFi GoT Deadpool

How about a MetaFilter Game of Thrones Deadpool? Name ten characters in the order you feel most confident of their death. So, if you put Character A as #1 and he dies, you get 10 points. If you put Character B as #10 and she dies, you get one point.

Looking for an image linked in a comment on the blue

Several years ago someone posted a link on the blue of a table that took prolife arguments and explained how to was or wasn't consistent with simply punishing women for daring to have sex. It covered abortion, birth control, and the hpv vaccine.

Metatalktail Hour: What's New, Pussycat?

(Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh) Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! It's time for Eurotalktails! (Which is supposed to be the first weekend of the month but sometimes new months surprise me.) This week, I want to know what is NEW in your life? What are you doing that's new, that's different, that's something you've never done or tried before? Did you hang a new piece of art? Take a class? Get a pet? Jog a whole mile? Watch a Wes Anderson movie for the first time? Tell me something you've done lately that's NEW to you!
