Miss Correct Posture


Contestants Marianne Baba (L), Lois Conway (M) and Ruth Swenson (R) posing with their trophies and X-rays. Photo: Wallace Kirkland/LIFE via Google LIFE Archives

No slouchers here, ma'am! Just winners of the Miss Correct Posture beauty pageant.

In the 50s and 60s, American chiropractors held a series of rather unusual beauty pageants where contestants were judged and winners picked not only by their apparent beauty and poise, but also their standing posture (backed with X-rays of their spines, of course).

The contests were a publicity stunt, Reginal Hug, past president of the Association for the History of Chiropractic, told Scott Hensley of NPR, and was meant to burnish the reputation of the profession. The message, he said, was that good posture led to good health and that chiropractors could help with that. "In those days, nobody was concerned about radiation," Hug added, noting the use of X-rays to check for spinal structures.

Chiropractors checking the posture of contestant Marianne Baba - notice the plumb bob used to check the straightness of her back.

Reverse Panhandling


Photo via @mennesseynews

Most people expect to get things on their birthdays, but not Bob Blackley of Winston-Salem, North Carolina. On his birthdays for the past three years, the 59-year-old man stands in the middle of a busy intersection giving out $5 to hundreds of strangers.

Call it a case of "reverse panhandling" - Last week, Blackley held a sign saying "I have a job. I have a home. Could YOU use an extra $5?" while he handed out the bills.

While a lot of people look at him suspiciously, thinking that he's trying to sell them something, Blackley told Michael Hennessey of Fox 8 News. But one man told him that he'd use the money to buys medicine he couldn't afford to pay for.

Blackley gave out $700 the first year, then $750 the next year, and $800 the year after that - all with no strings attached. "Anything they want, if it puts a smile on their face, it's theirs," Blakely said. And as for his motivation, Blackley said that his reason is simple: "Glad I woke up, glad I'm able to do it. That's what life is all about, smiling."

Parental Advice: Mom vs Dad

Need an advice? Your parents will gladly give you one, regardless if you want it or not. This chart above sums up the difference between the advice you will get from your mother and from your father ("carpe a job" - Hah!)

I noticed that the advice that your mom and dad would give you when you get cuts and scrapes isn't there, so here it is:

When You Get Hurt Playing Let me clean that up and put a band-aid for you. Be careful next time. Walk it off, buddy.

Can you think of any more motherly or fatherly advice?

Book Shadow Sculpture at the Library

This is fantastic: a library in Mountain Home, Arkansas, has a wire sculpture that looks like a jumbled mess but casts a shadow that looks like a stack of books!

Does anyone know the sculptor's name?

How To Train Your Boyfriend

It's a well known parenting trick that kids love getting stars for performing well in school, doing chores around the house and, of course, potty training, but did you know that it's a great way to train your boyfriend, too?

The tumblr STFU, Couples shows us this great example of how Joe's girlfriend has got him educated in the art of modern relationship, including "epic dates," doing "things that please mom," "doing things that make sibs say 'aww'," and the all important "putting cute things on Facebook relationship status, pictures, etc."

Gold star to you, Joe's girlfriend!

Chrome's Font Looks Blurry to You? Here's How To Fix It

Did the recent update to your Google Chrome make the font blurry? Don't worry, it's not your eyesight. Here's how to fix it.

The newly released version 37 of Chrome for Windows uses a new text rendering method called DirectWrite. This method is hardware accelerated and it's supposed to be better than the previous one, but obviously it's caused some issues for you.

Try this: In the Chrome URL bar, type:

chrome://flags/#disable-direct-write

Then press enter. You should see the "Enable" turn into "Disable":

Click on the "Enable" link directly under the highlighted item to disable DirectWrite. You should see this:

Close all Chrome windows and restart it. The font should be nice and sharp again.

That Store

This store? No that store! We happened upon the That Store when walking around Flushing, New York, last week. I can't wait till the store becomes so successful that they can open more locations. At which point, you can then ask which That Store you're referring to: "This That Store" or "That That Store."

12 Kinds of Bicyclist in New York ... Which One Are You?

Artist Kurt McRobert drew these lovely archetypes of New York City bicyclists for a Time out New York feature, but one can assume to find most of these kinds of bikers in almost all metropolitan areas. I think he nailed it with the descriptions!

Have you seen one in your city? Or - gasp - are you one of them?

Book Map

If you love books and maps, then Dorothy Collective (previously on Neatorama) has got the cartographical wonder for you: their Book Map features titles of over 600 books by literature's greatest authors - from Thomas Hardy to Virginia Woolf, and Tolkien to Kurt Vonnegut - in form of a street map in the style of a turn of the century London.

The litho print Book Map features "classics such as Mansfield Park, Northanger Abbey, Bleak House, Vanity Fair and Wuthering Heights as well as 20th and 21st Century works such as The Waste Land, To the Lighthouse, Animal Farm, Slaughterhouse 5, The Catcher in the Rye, The Wasp Factory, Norwegian Wood and The Road."

The World's Most Badass ... Vespa Scooter?!


Photo: C. Galliani/Wikimedia

Quick, what does the word "Vespa" bring to mind? If you say "cute lil' scooter," you probably haven't seen this image above of the Vespa 150 TAP (for Troupes Aéro Portées), a Vespa scooter modified for use with the French paratroopers in 1956.

It's probably safe to say that this is the deadliest Vespa in the world. The military scooter is powered by a single-cylinder 146 cc two-stroke engine. It sports a M20 75 mm recoilless rifle, US-made light anti-armor cannon, and storage for some ammos. The scooter would be parachute-dropped from airplanes, accompanied by a two-man team who'd scoot along in absolutely menacing style.

Every Noise At Once

What? You don't know your progressive house from your deep disco house? What kind of a music lover are you?

But thanks to Every Noise At Once by Glenn McDonald, you no longer have to wonder the difference between "black metal," "pagan black metal," and "dark black metal."

McDonald, who works as "genre taxonomist" over at Echo Nest sure knows his stuff. His website not only displays over a thousand music genres, but you can also explore 30 seconds Spotify clips of music representative of that genre by clicking on the individual link.

McDonald wrote on the website:

This is an ongoing attempt at an algorithmically-generated, readability-adjusted scatter-plot of the musical genre-space, based on data tracked and analyzed for 1215 genres by The Echo Nest. The calibration is fuzzy, but in general down is more organic, up is more mechanical and electric; left is denser and more atmospheric, right is spikier and bouncier.

For example, clicking on "melodic death metal" plays a tune from that genre. Clicking on the double arrows open another cloud of bands that belong to that genre:
