Having mentioned AskMeFi yesterday, I should confess my addiction: the Human Relations section of the site is the greatest place on the Internet for discussing human joy and pain, a bit like GroupHug but with analysis. People submit questions about every aspect of life – dating, parenting, workplace relations – and get a spectrum of advice. There are some arseholes, but the general spirit of MetaFilter (humanity; articulate expression; frequent overthinking) shines through. Part 1 of my personal selection: getting out of a bad mood – talking dirty during sex – loving yourself – complimenting a man on his looks – mingling – coping with a girlfriend who doesn’t believe in atoms – sleeping on your back.

No self-respecting netizen should be without Coastr – social networking, with a hint of hops.

Since my co-workers read this, I’d better say straight away that I don’t mean them. Internetty Betty’s blog (made by a DnC member) tells the ongoing story of a council administrator who seems to have some trouble with computers. And people. Prime fodder for those who like reading (from a safe distance) about Induhviduals.

I don’t live in Milton Keynes, but if I did I probably wouldn’t take my car to MOTs R US, 35 Blundells Rd, Bradville, Milton Keynes, MK13 7HD.
That’s because of a review that was posted by user magicrebirth on revyu.com (“Review Anything”). Rating MOTs R US 2 out of 5, magicrebirth advised insisting on a quote beforehand, expressing the opinion that the mechanics were “The most stereotypical garage you could find – the first time they all look friendly and generous, the second time they don’t even know you and try to f**k you over.” Magicrebirth went on to claim that “The old method is used: labor, lots of labor, and spare parts you wouldn’t imagine the existence of. Result= incredible bills.”
Now, I don’t know whether this one opinion of MOTs R US is typical of their customers’ experience. I do know that review is no longer available, after revyu.com heard from the lawyers. Perhaps it deserves to be kept online for the benefit of anyone looking for an MOT in Milton Keynes.

Do you know when the 9/11 attacks took place, and which two cities were attacked? Being a DnC reader, you’re more likely to know the answer than some of the New Yorkers interviewed in this Australian comedy show.
Serious answer: the date was 11 September 2001. The European way of writing dates puts the month second, so 11 September would be 11/9. However, the American date format puts the month first, so they write it 9/11. While we’re on the topic, official bipartisan investigations confirm that Saddam Hussein was not behind the attacks.
