You WHAT?

Falling or Flung?Falling or Flung? by M.Christian (cc by-nc-nd)

I've further subdivided the In The Bathroom category of MefiWiki::YouWHAT. I hope you people are happy. A comment from zamboni in the Proper Way to Prepare a Toothbrush Ask Me thread reminds us about the excellent, amusing, and instructive Mefi Wiki section on "all the threads that have exposed the shocking practices of our fellow Metafilterians."

In Ask Metafilter, amicamentis looks for suggestions on switching things up.

Dirty secrets

Housekeeping!Housekeeping! by Eat_Crow (cc by-nd)

Prepare to be amazed and maybe disgusted! MsMolly sparks a roundup of AskMe questions about everyday behaviors that you never knew other people are doing wrong - like shoes on vs. off in the house, and sit vs. stand to wipe.

And in the thread on the snowballing repercussions of the Panama Papers, some reporting direct from our Iceland bureau and some other local news coverage.

Other recent threads on corruption around the world: the Unaoil bribery scandal; Brazil's government-wide meltdown.

I Did it My Waaaaay

Flypostering is WrongFlypostering is Wrong by gwire (cc by)

I'm looking for tasks where (1) each person consistently does it in a particular way, (2) believes that everyone else does it that same way, and (3) is wrong about (2).

On Ask Me, what do people incorrectly believe to be universal?, wherein we find out some folks are just wrong. Very, very wrong, indeed.
