I find that I move in and out of Metafilter and MF participation as the circumstances of my life dictate, but this last time, tipping my toe back in, I'm struck by how comfortable and affirming it feels to reacquaint myself with this part of the world. I know this place is the product of many people (and mods; the best moderation on the web), so I figured I'd thank you all. Thanks for making this wonderful place.

Howdy, folks. As some of you may recall, there is a virtual stroll (amble, arch...ery, ramble) from San Francisco to Japan going on. The first IRL listing has expired. The new IRL listing has dropped us to 3 participants from 11. That is fine but perhaps you meant to join up to log your walking (skipping, etc.) time for fun and forgot. Or perhaps you never heard about it. I am here to say there is still plenty of time to participate in the soon-to-be-legendary Peripatetic Persistent Pirate Puffins' Pacific Peregrination (2). Join us!

It's time again for that weird thing we do, which is program 72 hours of specials, bad Christmas movies, MST3K episodes and other things. It's MST Club's 2020 Holiday Video Marathon! We usually put this in for intermittent yuletide jollies and destress, to help people relax at an often frustrating time of year. This year, with so many people sensibly staying home for the holidays, it promises both to be less and more stressful than usual. Anyone can come by and watch weird stuff with us, members or not! Our show runs from December 23 through to midnight December 25. Details inside! [more inside]

Hello weekend Mefites! This week soundguy99 wants to hear about your Stupid Human Tricks. "In light of this Ask, which is apparently inspiring some of us to contortion ourselves in our abodes to see what is & is not possible, here's a possible idea for a MetaTalkTail - Stupid Human Tricks. Unusual things you can do (physical, mental, whatever) or "common" things you can't do? Can you do the chair challenge? Curl your tongue? Move your eyes independently? Multiply 5-digit numbers in your head? Read backwards? Or NOT?" [more inside]
