Aka the anti–fucking fuck thread. I remember we had some threads soon after the 2016 election where Mefites shared their efforts toward making the world a better place, and I would love to do it again, especially since I could use some inspiration to get my butt moving as midterms approach!

Do you draw and/or not draw? Great, time to draw some stuff! (Or sketch, or paint, or whatever the hell your jam is or you would like your jam to be.) That's right, it's Inktober, and I reckon we should congregate in this thread with our various stuff-you're-drawin' feeds and such. [more inside]
I’m not sure if this is a pony request or a bug report.... I often browse through AskMe by clicking repeatedly on the random button. On a desktop (using Chrome, modern theme), when I hit “back,” it takes me to last random thing I was looking at. On my phone (iPhone 8, modern theme), when I hit “back,” it takes me back to the last place I was before I started hitting the random button. Is this just me? I would prefer the desktop way.

If you wanted to hear about the time Jessamyn went on Jesse Ventura's TV show, this episode of the MetaFilter podcast is your big chance! Also we talk about, y'know, MetaFilter and MetaFilterian things and fun stuff and stupid stuff. The whole gamut, basically. [more inside]
I'm pretty sure I read about an audiobook in a comment here. I wanted to get audiobook but now can't remember what it was or where the comment was. The gist of the comment was "[Title] is now available as an audiobook and it's read by [famous person]." Famous person who read the audibook was well-suited to the book, like maybe they had played the main character or the writer in a movie or something like that? I briefly thought "why didn't X [possibly the main charcter] read it" and then felt silly because of course X is dead? fictional? I may have found the comment after falling through a rabbit hole from this AskMe. Any ideas?
Playoffs have started and I'm the past I've loved participating even in my limited amount. Had the site policy changed on event such as these or has no one posted to fanfare yet?
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."
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. [more inside]
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? [more inside]
