    Happy Holiday Season 2019

    Happy holidays to everyone! I hope you spent time with your family (if that's your thing) or time with your friends (if that's your thing) or time with yourself (if that's your thing). I spent time with my weasels 'cause that's my thing. Thank you for being such wonderful people. You make me...

    Is anyone missing a computer chair?

    Hello, all you happy people. I got a mysterious shipment at my office this morning - a Bossin computer chair. I didn't order this and everyone I asked said they didn't order it for me, so did someone here mistakenly use my address for their shipment? It looks like it came from and...

    Identifying predatory publishers

    This question is for those in academia - how do you identify predatory publishers/journals/etc? I administer a scholarship competition that relies heavily on the applicant's publishing record. The higher-ups really want to crack down on students who knowing publish with predatory journals, so I...

    I'm buying a new car...

    ...because a stupid deer decided to be a shmuck. Now, I've never bought a new car before. As a new car virgin, what would you recommend I consider in a new car and what should I avoid like a plague rat? As @Bubble181 obliquely pointed out, maybe I should add some details. I live way out in the...

    Message ratings

    Just out of idle curiosity... Are you more likely to rate a message if you see someone else has rated it? Are you more likely to rate messages from certain people or messages that have already been rated by certain people?

    I've had 4 hours of sleep, so AMA.

    You might get a weird answer. You might get a short video of me drooling on my keyboard. You might have a doomweasel show up at your house later tonight. Go ahead; take a chance.

    Let's play "Critique my resume"

    I'm applying for a part-time job because doomweasels are frakkin' expensive to feed. Water buffalo don't come cheap, ya know. So would any of your kind souls be willing to look over the resume I've put together for this position? Just to let you know, I'm not looking for a professional...

    Civilian impersonates military member on Remembrance Day

    Y'all heard about this? Evidently, this guy showed up at the Remembrance Day ceremony in Ottawa in a mish-mash Canadian military uniform, was interviewed on CTV and supposedly gave his actual name, France Gervais. Now the military is trying to track him down, and I don't think it's going to be...

    One of our members is a MST3k virgin. In order to rectify this unfortunate situation, I offered to send him a selection of discs but I want to send the best episodes. So, my fellow MSTies, if you were introducing someone to MST3K, which ones would you chose?

    [Question] Looking for a free video editor

    I'm not going to be able to fly down to Mobile for my grandfather's 90th birthday party so I'm going to send a video instead. It's going to be short, no more than 5-6 minutes of me blabbing my face off. About the only thing fancy I want to do is put in a screen that reads "I love you, Papa"...

    Calling all band geeks

    Continuing from the Old Picture thread, how many of us were band geeks? What instrument did you play? Are you still playing today? Flute in grades 9 & 10, until I got braces. Then I switched over to percussion in marching band season and bassoon in symphonic band season. I still play the...

    Buying a house
