Open Thread

The weekly social/general Open Thread goes up at 6pm NYC-time on Fridays. Please natter/chatter/vent/rant on anything you like (within reason and the bounds of the comment policy) throughout the week. Other Open Threads prompted by specific events will happen every now and then.

N. B. Consider Topicality: please avoid duplicating discussion points on an active thread, and volunteer to take thread-jacks to a #spillover thread
