Legal to drink in several Canadian provinces

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.

Happy birthday, you old so-and-so.

It's possible that I still hold the record for the most-flagged comment ever (which I don't remember what it is and please don't remind me) that I think happened on the weekend when the MetaFilter cadre went to XOXO and were out of cell range for rather a long time.

I apologize for that, and I love MetaFilter. Happy Birthday!

18 years ago self, looking forward to legal drinking age MeFi:

WOOOOT LET'S GET YOU FUUUUUCKED UUUUUP!!! LETS THIZZZ YO FACE OFF LIKE SOME KIND OF EXTRADIMENSIONAL SPACE DUB PIRATE! WOOOOO PAAAARTAY!

Actual real world middle-aged-ish self:

You know, everything about this is problematic. No, I shouldn't get you shithammered, for Pete's sake I'm old enough to be your parent. Look, you lost some of your best friends and best years of your life due to drinking, and it's taken you years and years - no, the better part of two decades - to wrestle alcohol into an even marginally healthy relationship. How about we take a nice, healthy walk, have a light healthy lunch and maybe smoke a doob? How about a nice, brisk bike ride? Besides, it's already like 8:30 and I was actually looking forward to getting to go to bed early and read a book.

Ok, fine, yeah, you can take the keys and go out. Don't stay out too late, I'll worry about you. And don't you dare start smoking!

In 1965 Vietnam seemed like just another foreign war, but it wasn't
It was different in many ways, as so were those that did the fighting
In World War II the average age of the combat soldier was twenty-six
In Vietnam he was nineteen
In inininininin Vietnam he was nineteen
In inininininin Vietnam, he was nineteen
In Vietnam, he was nineteen
N-n-n-n-nineteen
The heaviest fighting of the past two weeks
Continued today twenty-five miles northwest of Saigon
I really wasn't sure what was going on
N-n-n-n-nineteen, nineteen
N-nineteen, nineteen
In Vietnam the combat soldier typically served a twelve-month tour of duty
But was exposed to hostile fire almost every day
N-n-n-n-nineteen
(N-n-n-n-nineteen) nineteen
In Saigon a US military spokesman said today
More than seven hundred enemy troops were killed last week
In that sensitive border area
In all of South Vietnam
The enemy lost a total of two thousand six hundred eighty-nine soldiers
All those who remember the war
They won't forget what they've seen
Destruction of men in their prime
Whose average age was nineteen
D-d-d-d-d-destruction
D-d-d-d-d-destruction
According to a Veteran's Administration study
Half of the Vietnam combat veterans suffered From what psychiatrists call
Post-traumatic stress disorder
Many vets complain of alienation, rage, or guilt
Some succumb to suicidal thoughts
Eight to ten years after coming home
Almost eight-hundred-thousand men
Are still fighting the Vietnam War
None of them received a hero's welcome
Nineteen
S-S-S-S-Saigon
Nineteen, n-n-n-n-n-ninteen
N-n-n-n-n-ninteen
Nineteen n-n-n-n-n-ninteen
N-n-n-n-n-ninteen, nineteen

One sends congratulations to MetaFilter and the exuberant MeFite community from rural England, where the ongoing heatwave has resulted in a retreat to the conservatory this early evening. One is currently imbibing a cup of splendidly made tea and eating some jolly nice cheese, sliced correctly and placed diagonally across digestive biscuits, while enjoying MetaFilter and a variety of other Internet sites.

Clean and innocent Internet sites that is, which do not feature any horse fucking whatsoever. Seriously, MetaFilter? 600+ favorites on that one comment already?!! MeFites: you are a twisted bunch of people who need help.

Ingredients:
1 instant cup of Ore Ida potatoes
1 egg
1 crust of bread
salt/pepper to taste

Add about half the required amount of water to the instant potatoes, stir well.
Squish the insufficiently wet potatoes over to one side, making a well.
Crack egg into potato well.
Gently cover with water, up to inner rim of the cup.
Microwave on Hi for about 99 seconds.
Gently stir remaining water into potatoes, taking care to break the soft yolk and mix the albumen into the hot potatoes.
Toast crust.
Spoon egg slut onto toast and maw it.

I don't think I ever put together before that Metafilter shares a birthday with my best friend. But she died this past year, so everything reminds me of her.

I hope Metafilter makes it to 45, since she didn't. You have all been such a comfort to me, I can't even express.
