Bad idea, but if you're gonna do it anyway...

File this under cool questions with a couple really cool answers from just the right people. Despite the obligatory "this is a bad idea" warnings.

And you're cute too.

So far, this has been one of my favorite days on metafilter, ever. I haven't been around that long, but between the bacon bookmarks (which I would like to officially nominate for the sidebar), the mysterious rocks surrounding Washington DC, and the all-sugar replicator, I am really fucking impressed. I know some of you hate America (Maybe you should check this out), but I loved that post too. Thanks rad people!

Did Anyone else notice the MiFi shoutout on Mythbusters?

There was a Mythbusters marathon recently. At the end of one of the the shows, behind Adam and Jamie, on the back wall, there was a masking tape "MeFi."

The kindness of MeFi.

Never mind "best of the web," this thread is surely the best of MetaFilter.

Ninjas, Mythbusters, Mefi - Too awesome to handle

This video, "Metafilter vs. Ask a Ninja Video" has a very obvious MeFi callout.

best first post ever?

I thought the buster keaton post was incredible, one of my favorites to read (and watch) in a long time, and even more so when i read it was a first post. Anyways I just want to recognize churl for putting so much effort into making such a great first post .. links to criticism, sources,background info and of course videos.. its awesome. Just a really auspicious begginning, i hope he does more like this

MeFi shoutout on tonight's Mythbusters

Speaking of asavage, did anyone else see the MeFi shoutout on tonight's Mythbusters? On the wall during one the post-myth summaries, "MeFi" was written in what looked like chalk on a green chalkboard. asavage mentioned that he'd shout the site out out in MeFi Podcast 3, but it sounded like that would only be for the old west show.

Apparently Brad doesn't

Congratulations frenetic, or as most of us know you, Brad Sucks on yesterday's appearance on New Music Canada Track of the Day! When you get rich and famous, remember - we recognized your brilliance first.

The site, it renders well on small devices

MeFi looked real nice on my fancy new phone device. I was impressed. That is all.

I really think this brilliant post by lemuria, although a few days old, deserves some sort of special notice. Maybe put it on the front page or something, just below the plate o' beans quote.

Good charity keeps plugging along

Remember Modest Needs? They turned five years old this week and hit one million dollars in funds dispersed since they started. In the anniversary post, the founder mentions they got their whole start thanks to that post on mefi.

AskMe brings the cheese in

"Long tailed awesomeness" - or AskMe brings the cheese in. In November 2005 I uploaded this question to Ask. In September 2006 I uploaded this song to Music. This morning I recieved this image and a nice note.

Sorry, I had to do it.

A few days ago, I had posted something on AskMe, and had got some wonderful replies from my fellow Mefites. I wanted to acknowledge them here, along with the community as a whole (for doing the great work that it does), and say how glad I am to be a pat of it.:) Thank you MeFi!

An end to double posts!

Is the "The link you entered (http://etc/) was found in 1 previous thread." warning new? Cool, helpful feature! I had used the search field to check for previous posts, but hadn't found it - presumably because I was linking to a different page on the same site. (Won't it be funny if someone posted this before? [nervous laughter])

Doubleplusgood doubleposting

Nevercalm deserves credit for anti-eponysterically advocating that his post, doubled five minutes later, be the one deleted. Mattamyn deserves credit, as usual, for not being blindly policy-bound.

Metafilter is really, really fucking good lately

Metafilter is really, really fucking good lately. 'Lately' being weeks if not months on end. My theory is that favouriting encourages people Be Swell. Whatever it is, though, I offer a sincere thank you to everyone concerned, because this place is still the best damn game in town.

The Wheel

In the middle of this thread, robocop is bleeding has written a truly awesome short story. Shades of... I dunno, Chuck Palahniuk, maybe? It's seriously that good. rib, have you published an anthology? 'Cause I'd buy it.

MeFi's Dylan?

As he's currently holding 4 of the 5 coveted "Most Favorited Tracks in the past 7 days", a staggering 86 (and counting!) favorites for his latest MeFi-related (and sidebarred!) tune, is it perhaps time to consider changing that heading for MeFi Music to "rock and/or cortex"? Well, anyway, congratulations, cortex!

Thank you for deleting this.

With all the MeTa'ing about why-did-you-delete-my-post, I feel sure this one will get challenged, too. But I just wanted to say excellent moderation there, w00t. Depressing-as-fuck does not equal best-of-the-web.

Shoutout for a question about honey and its interaction with bread.

PositiveFeedbackCalloutFilter:This question is why I love Metafilter. To me, it has all the makings of a classic AskMe. An honest query about an obscure topic, multiple knowledgeable responses, an offer to experiment, and an idea for lunch tomorrow!

Video maker comments

This thread, which starts with a YouTube link to a video made by an autistic woman, was fascinating in it's own right, but now has a long comment added by the maker of the video.

With all the AskMe talk, we hardly talk about the blue. Yesterday was a outstanding day on there and I just want to say thanks to every poster, even those who got deleted.

MEFI disucsses fundamentalists civilly!

Kudos where richly due. I'm delighted to see a thread I had actually feared would be deleted, about the sensitive nexus of fundamentalist Christianity and earthly power, close in on 100 comments and never once descend into vituperation. Nuanced disagreement, even principled difference of opinion, but no name-calling and no shit-flinging. It's a wonderful thing. Can we do this more often?

Adam Savage (asavage) answered an question about a Mythbusters episode in AskMe!

Well, that's about as canonical an answer as you're likely to get for that question, eh?

Darn it, I want to read the rest of prof. Xenophobe's greatest hits.

I observed that I have saved more comments from ROU_Xenophobe as favorites than from anyone else. Having noticed that, I checked ROU's profile, saw "contributions from ROU_Xenophobe saved by others 135 times" and tried to look at these to see if there were any pearls I had missed (aside: yes.) First page of favorites saved by others displays 30 comments. The "next page" link at the bottom apparently goes to page 2 of the favorited comments (the url changes, anyway) but the same 30 comments are displayed. No matter how many times I click "next page" I keep seeing the same 30 comments. Same result in IE6, Mozilla 1.7, and Foxfire 1.5. Darn it, I want to read the rest of prof. Xenophobe's greatest hits.

Thanks for not posting about this!

I, for one, would like to congratulate the members of the MetaFilter pseudo-community for NOT posting a "Murdoch/Fox Cancels O.J. Show and Book" NewsFilter in the one hour since it was announced and officially warn anyone considering doing something like that it will not end well.

I hope this is the right place to do it... I just would like to give a great big shout-out to everyone who took time to answer my newspaper job interview and tryout questions.

I'm hired!!!

You all rock, but CunningLinguist, croutonsupafreak, frogan, M.C. Lo-Carb! and game warden to the events rhino rock lots.


And thanks Mr Haughey for making a place where, within minutes, people who had the exact answers I needed were chipping in advice, reassurance and perspective from all over the world. That's pretty damn amazing. You rock too.
