dfowler, do you take requests? Make your next post a villanelle where the repeating lines tie together gluten-free baking techniques and string theory. You have fifteen minutes. Go!

No, I don't get it. And I actually tried this time.

You should already understand it, since we can all read minds.

I don't think there is a connection. He always posts a bunch of interesting stuff, and simply waits until someone invents a connection for him.

Complain all you want about dfowler, but he's going in my contacts as my muse.

Even better to provoke us to think, then! :)

My friend mcgraw wanted me to post this:

"As we look to the future, the first essential is to begin healing the wounds of Metafilter, to put the bitterness and divisions of the recent past behind us, and to rediscover those shared ideals that lie at the heart of our strength and unity as a great and as a free people.

By taking this action, I hope that I will have hastened the start of that process of healing which is so desperately needed on Metafilter.

I regret deeply any injuries that may have been done in the course of the events that led to this decision. I would say only that if some of my judgments were wrong, and some were wrong, they were made in what I believed at the time to be the best interest of Metafilter.

To those who have stood with me, to my family, my friends, to many others who joined in supporting my cause because they believed it was right, I will be eternally grateful for your support."

Fate
Up against your will
Through the thick and thin
He will wait until
You give yourself to him

In starlit nights I saw you
So cruelly you kissed me
Your lips a magic wooooooooooooooorld
