What's made you laugh recently?

It's been a pretty stressful week, and I can't be the only person who feels like they went ten rounds with a particularly exhausting Tower of Terror. So I'm looking for reasons to laugh, be it bitter black humor, all encompassing joyful bellows, groan-worthy puns, or simple funniness.

Metatalktail Hour: The Best Memes!

Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! This week, junques and duffel separately wanted to know, in junques's words: "what's something (a thought, gif, video, comment, phrase, meme, photo, song, ...) that never fails to make you smile and/or laugh?"

Support for Survivors

This is a very difficult week for survivors of sexual assault. I’d like to request that the community come together...to provide resources, poems/literature, articles, and really anything that focuses on supporting survivors. To clarify: this post is not about discussing the facts of the current news cycle, but a request to show love and support to our fellow mefites who may be suffering.

Viewing "activity" that hasn't been active in a while

tl;dr: is there anywhere i can see every post I've ever "added to activity", or does the record of such posts get deleted at some point?

I kinda called it

My prediction on Metafilter in 2015: "[A]s we pull back more and more and more we see a multiverse of Peter Parkers getting their powers, each played by a different actor, until one universe becomes clearer and we see..." The reality today. "As Peter trains Miles to become a better Spider-Man, they are soon joined by four other Spider-Men from across the 'Spider-Verse,' including Gwen Stacy, Spider-Man Noir, Peni Parker, and Spider-Ham."

metafilter bandcamp recommendations?

Until midnight tonight Pacific time, bandcamp is donating their share of all purchases to the Voting Rights Project. Everyone I know is using this as an excuse to buy all those albums that were on their wishlist, and to recommend all their favorite bandcamp music for everyone else to buy. Can we do that here? I wish I'd thought of this earlier, but there's still almost seven hours left in the sale...

MetaSpaceTimeContinuum

End of another long week filled with awful politics/news. Let's talk about something else instead. If you had access to a time-machine (DeLorean or Tardis), what time and place would you travel to? Maybe you would like to go back to ancient Mongolia? Or maybe you want to go back to the 60s and experience Beatlemania all over again? Or maybe experience the culture of 17th C French court? If you want to take a companion, feel free to do so, or maybe you're on this adventure solo. Either way, happy travels and try not to fuck up the time-line too much. :D

MetaHair

It's the middle of the week, let's shake things up a bit. Tell me about your hair. Maybe you're losing it, maybe you have a lot of it, maybe you just got it cut, maybe you're shaving it, or growing it out. It's maybe on your head, your face, your legs, your chest, your back, or not. Do you like your hair? Has it changed recently? Do you have some hair-related memories from your childhood? Let's talk about hair and break up the week and avoid politics. Tell me about your hair.

Wordshore will speak words for you in an English accent

Following a short but successful experiment, the result of which being that Mr Bondcliff of the USA is now the happy owner of a most unusual phone ringing tone, I have decided to speak words of the choosing of MeFites. "Hit me up", as the young MeFites apparently say, with some words and I will - within reason - create a sound file of spoken delights for you and others to listen to.

Isn't that "our" word?

I just saw that Merriam-Webster is adding "Tl;dr" to the dictionary, with first use cited in 2002. Am I crazy, or did that particular abbreviation originate here, at MetaFilter?

How about a Parenting & Kids Category on AskMeFi?

I've always felt that there is a category missing on AskMeFi. There are so many AskMe posts related to children, parenting, babies, etc - that I really think there should be some kind of all encompassing category for it. I've thought about this for a long time, but today is the day I finally speak up. What do you think?

Talk to me about favorites

What makes you favorite a post/why? Favorite a comment? Is there a difference? Do you use your favorites collection for anything? Do you have a method of curating them? Do you ever prune them? How often do you go back through them? Are you a stingy or generous favorite-bestower? Why?

Metafilter affiliate linking plug in?

I had to recently sign into a different Chrome account and I lost my plugins/extensions. One of which was the one that automatically added the Metafiler affiliate link when I visited Amazon. I cannot for the life of me find it again despite numerous site and google searching attempts

Ettiquette on reposting an entire, ongoing website

I discovered an awesome website today. Said website was posted to MeFi in 2011, in a post about the website itself. Specific pages of the website also appear within collections of links in 2 more recent posts (2017, 2018), although the posts aren't specifically featuring the website itself. The website is still going and still full of excellent content (7 years worth of additional content from the 2011 post). Is it frowned on for me to post it again?

MetaCheers

Tell me about that place 'where everybody knows your name'. Maybe it's your local coffee house or a diner or a bar or the local yarn barn, whatever it is, wherever it is, this is the place where people know your name when you walk in the door. Maybe you have a place to sit that is always reserved for you. You might even have a coffee mug that only you use, or maybe it's as simple as knowing the entire staff. Tell me about this other family, this other home. Happy Wednesday friends!

talkin' rockin' poffin boffin

This is a shoutout to poffin boffin, who in the last month has made 23 posts on the general topic of Indigenous Peoples, ranging from herring fisheries to sign languages to neologisms to cuisine to high steelworkers. Some of these posts didn't get many comments, but collectively they are an admirable corpus on an important topic.
