And apparently you can win a Kia Sorrento?
Cool.

Question: do players not on your 'pitch' matter? What's the point of having them sit as substitutes?

Ah, thanks for the clarification. Does that mean it would be a better strategy to keep your third-string goalie and your bottom defenders/mids/forwards as 1-point New Zealanders? It doesn't seem likely they'll ever be needed on the pitch and it would give you more points to get better players.

SPAM
I got the email as well – you probably signed up out of curiosity from the FPP and just forgot about it.

November is National Let's Try Obscuring Favorite Counts Month
I just wanted to say that I enjoy this new feature.

At first I was little peeved at the sudden change. Then I happy that I was able to toggle it off with the preferences, so I did that. But then I thought, what the hell? I might as well try it out.

And it's great! It does not privilege any opinions, which makes for a less mob-like popularity contest read of MeFi. I hope it stays and that it becomes the norm around here.... [more]

Dawkins Derail central
Keep in mind that Dawkins writes mainly against the Jewish/Muslim/Christian faiths. He writes against using religion as a means to control, against baseless superstitions, and against simplified conceptions of a "personal" God. (I personally think he's correct to call such stuff unfounded and probably untrue. He certainly sounds more sane than Eagleton.)

But there are other ways to define God that coincide just fine with science.... [more]

6.44 It is not how things are in the world that is mystical, but that it exists.

6.52 We feel that even when all possible scientific questions have been answered, the problems of life remain completely untouched. Of course there are no questions left, and this itself is the answer.

Retard sounds very schoolyard. I prefer the high-witted slanderous term "dingleberry", or its politically correct form, "person(s) with dingle in their berry".

This is the best, and most productive, callout thread I've ever seen

It also turned out to be the most boring callout thread ever.

Editors' Note: July 8, 2009

A picture essay in The Times Magazine on Sunday and an expanded slide show on nytimes.com entitled "Ruins of the Second Gilded Age" showed large housing construction projects across the United States that came to a halt, often half-finished, when the housing market collapsed. The introduction said that the photographer, a freelancer based in Bedford, England,... [more]

Artists' control of their output at Mefi Music
I would support this idea. There's a few I could go ahead and delete and it would free up bandwith/space for MeFi.

How has contributing to Metafilter affected your writing style?
I'd be interested in a new writing subsite. Stories, articles, poetry, & prose contributed by members. Sort of like MeMu but without the music, just the words and the spaces between them.

Pressies
I ate so much frickin' turkey that I got a stomachache, headache, and later got all feverish late into the night. Then came the vivid dreams of working on a Kashmiri construction site. It was joyous.

Seconding all Canadian citizens to contact whatever connections you have, be it governmental or the mainstream media. When I attended the Forum for Young Canadians, as a naive aspiring teen politician, a group of us conversed with some protestors outside of parliament (of a minority I cannot remember) who had documents upon documents outlining the plight of their family members (many with dual citizenships) in dire need across the globe, being tried and potentially executed. They were asking... [more]

Gyan: I'll be in Mumbai on the 17th. I'll be travelling the country by train extensively for the next few months and would love to meet fellow MeFites anywhere along the way. I know this isn't AskMeFi, but do any of you have any personal recommendations of places to visit? (I'm very, very excited!)

How afraid should we be of publicizing MeFi Music covers?
Covers are fine, samples are fine. The more covers on MeFiMusic, the better. They're a great way to hear interpretations of songs we know and love by people not too different from us. You know, like how songs used to be: passed around, shared, sung by all, and not selfishly hoarded to yield a profit. As for samples, samples are instruments in themselves. Technology has allowed musicians to lift soundwaves from previously recorded work and manipulate them to create something new. Not... [more]
