Manhattan Airport

Sick of all that wasted lance called"Central Park"? Why not join a movement of people trying reclaim that expanse of waste, and build an airport! Imagine, looking south from your penthouse, and smiling to yourself as another majestic 474 gently touches down on the fresh laid tarmac. Dedicate a bench to help support this forward thinking project.

This seems like an awfully familiar post…

Oh, right, that's because this was posted about the other day, and exposed as a hoax.

Did you know that Julius Nepos became western Roman Emperor in 474 when he deposed Glycerius?

It's true! Wikipedia told me so!

'Wasted Lance' is the name of my heavy-metal band, or perhaps my gay-porn alter ego.

I understand the double posts from, like, 2002. But the double posts from yesterday, they confuse the hell out of me.

Don't the people who post on MetaFilter read MetaFilter?

(Because really, they should try it. It's quite tasty.)

You even used the same link as the previous post. Shouldn't it have been flagged by the autochecker?

Huh, yeah I'm surprised as well that it didn't get caught automatically.

I saw this amazing video of a wolfman teaching a baby wolf to howl on videogum but someone had kind of posted it already. If I'd known today was double down thursday I would have just done it anyway.

At 3:20 in this video Gwyneth Paltrow says "I lost a tater". I can only presume it is a Mefi shoutout.
