This Week at Neatorama

We've officially said goodbye to summer and are heading into fall 2010. Let's see what happened at Neatorama this week, just in case you may have missed something.

We retraced the history of the Vietnam Veteran's Memorial in Washington, D.C. with Building the Wall from Uncle John's Bathroom Reader.

The Annals of Improbable Research gave us a dose of silliness with Spots Where the Spotted Were Spotted.

A Celebration of Elephants rounded up some of the previous reports we've had about the amazing things elephants can do.

From mental_floss, we looked at the origins and inspirations of George Lucas' opus with In The Beginning: Star Wars.

Steven Johnson added more to the Museum of Possibilities this week with ideas for Car Trunks and Drawers.

Don't miss our exclusive Interview with Artist Kasey McMahon, and your chance to win a ticket to her new science/art expo call Re Evolution! Yes, the contest is still open.

Over at the Art Blog, we welcomed a new gallery from collage artist Megan Coyle. Check it out!

NeatoBambino is Neatorama's blog about babies and children. Even if you don't have any, you'll enjoy the funny kid videos, like this one that humorously illustrates the intense rivalry between the University of Alabama and Auburn University.

In our What Is It? game this week, Just a Guess had the right answer, and Tyra Shupe had the funniest answer with “industrial toe nail clippers.” Congratulations to both, who won T-shirts from the NeatoShop! See the object and the real explanation at the post.

There are more ways to win you might not even know about, if you aren't following our Twitter feed or joining us at Facebook. David Israel throws out frequent but randomly-timed contests and gives away neat stuff! This week, congratulations go out to Rand Miranda and Chris Meisenzahl, who scored copies of the new Iron Man 2 Bluray/DVD set in our Twitter-only giveaway. Don't miss your chance to be the next winner!
