"Things People Do Differently" -- I can't find it!

Somewhere on Metafilter, there was a massive compilation of all the "I do X and my friend does Y, which one of us is correct?" posts, like about which way toilet paper rolls go, and sock-sock-shoe-shoe or sock-shoe-sock-shoe, or wiping while standing vs sitting. My search skills are failing me. Where on earth was this?

A whale of a Meta!

Halloween Jack posed a question in response to aniola's wonderful post about whales and literature.
“So, can any of you boffins on the blue tell me if there's a longer post than this one?”
I thought it'd be nice to have a place to discuss that subject and share some of the longer posts that have managed to hit MetaFilter.

Metatalktail Hour: Bad Decisions

Good Saturday evening, Metafilter! This week, vignettist wants to hear "stories about bad decisions that people have made - not "I ruined my life" decisions, but "well, we were drunk so scaling a 10ft wall seemed like a good idea at the time". Also, pranks." [more inside]

Rejoice! It's the Underappreciated Comments of 2017!

Although many of us are understandably eager to put this year behind us, we cannot do so without observing the time-honored tradition of toasting the comments that made us laugh, cry, or cheer in 2017, but for whatever reason, didn't receive the acclaim that they deserved. [more inside]

Metatalktail Hour: Prized Possession

Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! Tonight's question comes from zamboni, who wants to know what your most prized possession is! Obviously you have to tell us the story about WHY it's your most treasured possession. Or, you can just tell us what's up with you, how the new year's going, whether it's cold enough to freeze your Winnebago where you are ... [more inside]

Fucking Fuck, v7

It's time for another FUCKING WTF thread! Not even a week into 2018, the current occupier of the Oval Office has baited Kim Jong-un about having a "much bigger & more powerful" nuclear button, asserted his former political opponent, her chief staffer, and his ex-FBI director should all be in jail, feuded with his former campaign manager Steve Bannon over indiscreet quotes, threatened the publisher of an unflattering insider account of his first year with legal action, addressed the White House press corp with a pre-recorded video, and suspended security aid to Pakistan. As a public service for MeFites, here is a place to cry out, commiserate, and console in the New Year. It's chaos; be kind. [more inside]

❄2018 Winter Check-In❄

Both Canada and the United States are in the midst of a very cold winter blast. What meteorologists have dubbed as a "Bomb Cyclone"! Frigid temperatures, snow, ice, rain, strong winds are things to watch out for. Thought it would be good to have a place for us to check-in and make sure we're all safe and warm. Take care of yourself, your friends, family members, and our furry loved ones (they get cold too). Be careful, plan ahead, wear layers, and as my mom always reminds me, “Cover your head.”
