Metatalktail Hour: Overlooked! Underappreciated!

Happy Olympics weekend, MetaFilter! This week, I'd like to know not your favorite thing, but a thing you like or love that you think is wildly underappreciated or overlooked and more people should know about it and enjoy it! Books, food, movies, sports, dog breeds -- anything you think the rest of the world would enjoy if only they knew about it! [more inside]

Metatalktail Hour: Sneaky pet/kid stories

I'm cat-sitting for some clever naughty cats who last night managed to break into the Forbidden Room and raided the good treats stashed there.

1. money 2. budget 3. ??? 4. profit!!

With regard to this post I think monthly budgets are fascinating to compare. This question isn't meant at all for you to share your income, just to give an idea of what you spend and where. Geographic location is definitely appreciated for cost of living adjustments. I'll post mine first. [more inside]

"In this story I think that the helicopter is a closet."

"I believe the story’s detractors were hurt by the title or some of the content or the very idea of the story.

I believe they believe — still — that they did the right thing. They still destroyed a woman’s life." Emily Van Der Werff writes about the helicopter story, and what came after it. I'm going to suggest this thread as a space for gentle, respectful meditation on what caused this tragedy, potentially including the role that Metafilter played in that. [more inside]
