MetaFilter is seven!

Cat-Scan.com is one of the strangest sites I've seen in some time. I have no idea how these people got their cats wedged into their scanners, or why.

I have never attempted to scan a cat. I wouldn't even know where to start. In fact, I don't think I agree with it.

Till there was you, Metafilter...

There were cats....on the scanner,
but I never heard them yowling
No, I never heard them at all,
Till there was you.

There were flamewars....on the Net,
but I never saw them burning,
no, I never saw them at all
Till there was you.

And there was Music,
and passionate outrage,
they tell me, and sweet web design
pages to make me laugh and cry

There was news, all around
but I never saw it discussed,
no, I never saw it at all
Till there was you.

There was help, all around
But I never found a cake taker
No, I never found it at all
Till there was you
Till there was you

Happy Spirit Formation Journey Anniversary, Metafilter!

Deep within the womb of time,
a creature thus be born
The seed of life is united with
the egg of tyranny
Gestates forth from within the womb of life
for three-quarter and nigh a year
The creature thus be born!
The creature thus be formed!
And ye of years
Seven bells
Will chime!
When the heavens open up
and drink from the silver cup
The creature thus be born!
And blow the magic horn!
To alert the spirit deep within the cycle of life.
The creature has begun it's journey deep forlorn,
upon this day which he be formed
In the sea of mucus the spirit rides down from the mountain
and unites with the creature in the womb
A holy union, dark mortality, until the dark mortality
breaks the chain of life
The creature thus be born
And every year raineth down the celebratory tears
A celebration of the years
from mere mortal sky!

Oh my. Seven years. Let me be the nearly last to wish Matt a Happy Anniversary (He knows as well as anyone, this site is more like a marriage than a baby - it's the users who are the children), and, thinking back on all that has happened in those seven years... I think I'll need extra antidepressives today.

According to the official archives, even though I was #206 to sign on to this thing, my own anniversary of participation won't be until February 9th. And I am shocked - shocked - to realize that nearly all my early contributions were either WeirdNewsFilter (with expired links to Yahoo News), A-List Blog Happenings or MetaTalk Topics Before There Was MetaTalk. I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely apologize. I was also personally responsible for the First Annual Anniversary/Cat-Scan Thread, albeit a day early (with the excuse of taking a collection for a gift - which I never made happen). Anyway, it does my heart good to know that something I started has become a tradition somewhere.

Just remember, all you damn kids, MetaFilter is a very very special place on the Web, and should not be defiled... more than twice daily.

Other birthdays on July 14th...
Woody Guthrie, Gerald Ford, Ingmar Berman, William Hanna (of Hanna Barbera), Tom Carvel (of Carvel Ice Cream), Isaac Bashevis singer, George Tobias (he played Abner Kravitz on Bewitched), Cliff "Jiminy Cricket" Edwards

Other events (besides the storming of the Bastille in 1789)
1798 - Congress passed the Sedition Act, making it a crime to publish false, scandalous, or malicious writing about the U.S. government.
1881 - Billy the Kid was shot by Sheriff Pat Garrett in New Mexico.
1921 - Anarchists Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti were convicted of two murders and sentenced to death.
1933 - In Germany, all political parties except the Nazi party were outlawed.
1946 - Dr. Spock's Common Sense Book of Baby & Child Care was published.
1958 - A military coup overthrew the monarchy in Iraq, killing King Faisal II, and General Abdul Karim Kassem became Iraq's leader.

Happy birthday. I feel so dumb, I even downloaded and installed greasemonkey and everything hoping to see scanned cats and all I got was some dumb squatter shopping page thing, but I'll try to not spoil your party, Dont mind me, I'll just sit here in the corner with a dumb pointed cone head birthday hat on and drink till I'm slobbering on myself or tryin to scan someones kitty.

You know you've been around the blue too long when you see this post and instantly say "is it that time again, already?"

Especially when you realise that you have been around for more than 50% of them. Those figures are more than enough to get someone elected prime Minister in some backward countries like Australia and England.
