Best Metafilter posts for outsiders?

I have, over the years, tried to convince IRL friends of the awesomeness of metafilter. But getting them interested is daunting- there is so much history and culture here. Any given day the front page posts are good; but if you're not familiar with the site, can seem like just a collection of links with discussion. So what threads/posts/discussions do you use to really show off metafilter to people unfamiliar with it? Are there any standout posts you use time and again to people unfamiliar with metafilter? This isn't the best metafilter posts, exactly, as some of the best posts jusdged by mefites may be too culturally specific to hook someone on the outside looking in. [more inside]

How many people sign up per day?

My friend and I were discussing MeFi and came to a point of contention when estimating the number of new users MeFi receives per day. My guess was 5 to 10, his was 25 or more. Perhaps this argument can be laid to rest here. How many new users does MeFi average per day?

When will signups be reopened?

As long as I'm asking questions, when are new members going to be accepted again? A friend who I introduced Mefi to recently offered $ for my login. He was desperate. I said no. He cried.

How come new admissions are frozen but the number of members keeps creeping up?

How come new admissions are frozen but the number of members(12322 when last I checked)keeps creeping up? Asylum seekers? Sleight of hand on the part of undesirable aliens? I think we should be told...

New Member Flood

The Brill's Content thing deserves its own thread: Looks like we've gotten about 500 new members in the past 24 hours, judging by the member numbers at the top of the page.
