Metafilter Is A Land Of Contrast
The exports of Metafilter are numerous in amount. One thing they export is Simpsons quotes, or as the Indians call it, “memes”. Another famous Indian was “Crazy Horse”. In conclusion, Metafilter is a land of contrast. Thank you.

I found myself curious as to what, exactly, was a land of contrast, so I ran a couple Google searches. I scraped together enough to post one a day to Tumblr for the next six months. Here is said Tumblr for your bookmarking/dashboard-adding pleasure. Here are the lands posted to that Tumblr so far.

Don't want to wait six months to know the full extent of my research? Well, it's a bit of a spoiler, but here's the full yet probably incomplete list of things Metafilter believes are a land of contrast(s).

Something I missed? Send me a link and I'll add it to the queue. FYI, I didn't keep very good track, but the usage seems to crop up sometime around 2009.

I've never been more proud to have something I said show up on a random list of things on the internet. Or at least to be going to do so eventually.

I was sure I had used this before and was curious what it was, and I searched my history and it turns out that I just used the phrase "In conclusion, Libya is a land of contrast. Thank you." after a particularly wordy diatribe about my feelings in 2012 about Ryan Lochte and the acceptability of making fun of his seeming dumbness.

I don't think that belongs on your list as any sort of separate entry, but I thought I should post it publicly, if only to shame past-me.

This is so great and so highly specific!
