This Week at Neatorama

This past week has been full of excitement over the opening of Major League Baseball, but March Madness continues in April. I am surprised but proud and pleased that the UK Wildcats are in the Final Four, despite being seeded #8 in the tournament. They play Wisconsin late tonight, after Florida vs. Connecticut. The past week at Neatorama has been full of baseball, April Fools, The Walking Dead withdrawal, and Game of Thrones excitement -the new season begins tomorrow night. While you’re waiting, you’ll want to catch up on all the important stuff from the week at Neatorama.

We had two exhibitions of fan art. John Farrier brought us 12 Great Pieces of World Conquest Zvezda Plot Fan Art.

And Jill Harness found 21 Cool Pieces of Quentin Tarantino Fan Art.

Eddie Deezen told us about Babe Ruth's Lovelife.

We had two excerpts from brand new books! The first was Pranklopedia: The Funniest, Grossest, Craziest, Not-mean Pranks on the Planet.

The other was How to Make Your Cat an Internet Celebrity.

Over on our Spotlight blog, we brought you 10 Rarest Rock and Roll Photographs.

And a big look at a World Map Made of Coins.

Funny You Should Ask, a scientific study on whether people will have sex with strangers, was from The Annals of Improbable Research.

And 4 Gertrudes Who Changed the World took a look at some fascinating women in history, courtesy of mental_floss magazine.

We took a poll to see Who Will Die in the Season Finale of The Walking Dead? in your opinion. Without giving anything away, I can say that we were altogether even more wrong than in last years poll!  

A more recent poll came in the post How Many People Would It Take to Colonize Another Star System? That isn't the poll question; the question is whether you would be willing to try it.

Hy Conrad's Whodunit this week was The Dying Clue. Did you figure it out?

In this week’s What Is It? game, the mystery item is a chain breaker, or chain detacher. There’s more about it at the What Is It? blog. Meanwhile, we had a lot of wrong but funny answers here in the game! Andrew Dalke had a clever answer (a reader favorite with 5 ♥s), “It's for grooming the sheep that make steel wool.” That’s a winning answer, but unfortunately, he did not select a t-shirt. StilesJM 1 also had a good answer, it’s “Salvador Dali's salad fork.” That’s certainly worth a t-shirt from the NeatoShop! Thanks to everyone who played this week, and thanks to the What Is It? blog!

We have a new contest called Tell Us What to Write About & Win A $50 Shopping Spree At the NeatoShop. It's taking place on Pinterest, and is open for entries until April 11th. You can get all the details in the post. We can't wait to see your ideas!

The post with the most comments this week was Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s? unless you count the giveaway.

The comment of the week was this exchange under the picture of the kids listening to a bagpiper.



The most popular post this week was For Sale: A Creepy Gigantic Model of David Hasselhoff by far, followed by Stunning 3D Tattoos Appear to Leap off the Skin and When an Elephant Falls on You.

The post that received the most hearts was Street Typography, with Student Accepted at All 8 Ivy League Schools coming in second. The most-emailed post was Make Your Own Beautiful Fire Pit Swing Set.

Over at the NeatoShop, I hear Alex is busy signing up new indie artists by the truckload to bring you the finest and most unique t-shirt designs on the planet.

We invite you to follow the Neatoramanauts Facebook page for extra content you won't see here, plus you'll want to follow Neatorama on Twitter and Pinterest, too!

Thanks for visiting us at Neatorama! Have a great week, everyone!
