Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! This week, I'm wondering about New Year's resolutions -- do you make them? Do you hate them? Did you succeed at any last year? And also, how do you welcome in the new year? [more inside]
We're just at the half way point of 2018. How are those New Year's resolutions coming along? Have you done the thing you said you were going to do? If you have, that's awesome. If you didn't, there's still time. And maybe you won't, that's also cool, there's always next year. Figured it'd be fun to have a place to share our triumphs, struggles, etc.
Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! Tonight's topic: What are your New Year's Resolutions? [more inside]
Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! This week, an open thread for the holidays, and I hope you're having lovely ones! Tell us something holiday-y that's up with you.
Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! Now that Halloween is over, I am ready to GET HYPE for the winter holidays, and with the SUPER-INTENSE SNOWSTORM we had on Friday that made it impossible to drive, but only for an hour, I think the universe is telling me it's time to talk turkey. (And trees and menorahs and festivus poles and kinaras and champagne and red envelopes and logs and orbital mechanics and any other holiday accoutrements that may be common to your culture, family, or religion!) So what is up for the next couple months, what are you looking forward to, what are you making cunning plans to avoid, tell us everything holiday.
The big end of the year, end of the double-digits podcast episode was recorded yesterday and runs 1h51m as we chat about all our favorite posts from the previous month, highlight some winners from the mefites choice contest, and reminisce about the holidays. [more inside]
Podcasts of notable things on MeFi each month or so are fun. Maybe a larger scope would be funner. Would a podcast about the entire past year be possible? [more inside]
What are your New Year's resolutions for MetaFilter? As in, I resolve to attend more meetups in Iceland without making gender-based assumptions about the other attendees. [more inside]
Getting quite fed-up of Postroad's racism. I take it it's not an acceptable form of speech to characterise a whole nation as violent as it's most anti-social elements?
