Metatalktail Hour: Open Holiday Thread!

Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! This week, I'm feeling Christmassy now that (American) Thanksgiving is in the books, and Hannukah is like ALMOST UPON US (so early this year!), so it's a holiday open thread!

Metatalktails: Alternative Holiday Traditions

Hello friends. Eyebrows McGee is taking a much-needed nap, so I'm here instead this week. Tonight, I want to hear about your alternative holiday traditions. For any holiday at all -- do you celebrate it differently, in a good way? Did your family have a tradition you belatedly realized was just done by you? Did your holiday alternative ever go hilariously wrong?

MeFi/AskMe Website Engagement Metrics

Is there available data that shows when Metafilter and Ask Metafilter experience the highest volume of website engagement? Such as on what days and times of day are most users "on" MeFi and AskMe?

Zozosuit Check-in II

In this post on the Blue a bunch of us ordered free "Zozosuits", spotted body-scan jumpsuits for ordering tailored clothing. The previous MetaTalk post on the subject expired before we got the clothes in. I just got mine, has anyone else?

I like cookies

I noticed it's a little past the usual time that the cookie swap gets announced, and I miss it! For five years running, ausdemfenster gave us the awesome gift of organizing it. I don’t want to step on toes if I’m wrong, but I think she may not be taking it on this year. Regretfully, I'm not volunteering to run it, but I hoped if I called attention to it here, maybe someone else would?

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!
