Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! This week: Open thread! [more inside]
End of another week, let's talk about something else that is not related to politics. I want to hear about some "thing" that you've experienced over and over and over again. Maybe it's a book you keep re-reading, or a movie you've seen 100+ times, or a video game you play constantly, or an album or song you have on repeat. What piece of media are you constantly re-enaging with? Some thing that feels like the back of your hand, that you are familiar and comfortable with, that you know all the way through. Some thing you keep on coming back to because you just love it so much. As always, be kind to yourself and others. Cheers.

Did you know that there's a Chrome extension that will let you add Metafilter's Amazon affiliate code to every Amazon link you click? It also adds the tag every time you navigate directly to Amazon. It works on all international Amazon sites and a couple of other Amazon-related sites. [more inside]
For this Euro time shift edition of Metatalktails we ask: what weird or ordinary things have you memorized, either through great effort, or entirely accidentally? Interpret as narrowly or broadly as you like. [more inside]
It's podcast time, and it's a (relatively) brief, (relatively) under-produced episode this time, with me and Jessamyn chatting about MeFi stuff for about 70 minutes because my voice was a little worn out. [more inside]
End of another week, let's talk about something else that is not related to politics. I just want to talk about bears,
beets, Battlestar Galactica. Black bears, brown bears, polar bears, giant pandas. Bears are awesome. As always, be kind to yourself and to others. We're all fighting a battle that others cannot see. Cheers.
Y'know what's so cool about this place? When a comment of yours gets its very first Favorite...ten years after you made the comment. That's all. Carry on.
For the sake of our tender political psyches as well as the mods' I propose either: A )Dem primary candidates' posts are not included on the current US politics side bar or B) there be a separate Demprimary side bar, with the same opt in/out button. [more inside]
