Now that's a spoiler! Redditor ReverendVoice's friend snapped this photo of a spoiler on a spoiler on this Buick station wagon. And did you catch the name of the street?
What should you do when the milk truck has an accident? Shattoo Milk Company wants us to be prepared and have cookies ready. Lots and lots and lots of cookies!
This beautifully shorn camel hails from the city of Bikaner in northwest Rajastan, a state in India. Every year in January, the state government organizes a camel festival where beautifully decorated camels like this one are put on display.
How in the world did they shear those intricate images on the camel? Why, with a pair of scissors of course:
Forget bad reindeer / ugly Christmas sweaters - they all pale in comparison to this Chilled to the Bone 80's sweater, featuring a skull with ear muffs and scarf. So metal! Via FAIL Blog.
With a motto like "To Ferment and Serve," this Beer Patrol car from craft brewery Fremont Brewing in Seattle, Washington, doesn't exactly strike fear in the heart of motorists ... but perhaps will induce a thirst emergency that can only be quenched with ... beer, of course!
And what's that number to call again? Here ya go:
Neatoramanauts, rejoice! We've returned with more neat and funny pictures of the day, over on our Lolpic blog NeatoPicto:

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!
Ever heard the adage "time waits for no one"? Obviously you haven't seen this funny cartoon panel by James R. of The Odd 1s Out webcomic. Time obviously waits for his girlfriend getting ready.
This ship steam boiler looks just like a "grandma caterpillar putting on lipstick," according to Redditor badgerfish. Now that you've seen it, we betcha you can't see it as anything else.
Redditor lostcancer's girlfriend gave him a grocery list for things to buy, and left a subtle hint. As a guy, I can tell you right now that this list is flawed. Just what kind of cheese and deli meat does she want? We can't read minds, y'know!
Worried about the government installing cameras everywhere to record your every move? Forget Big Brother - as this comic panel from our pal Bizarro explains, Apple and Samsung have got them beat ... and guess what? You gladly shelled out hundreds of dollars for the pleasure!
Just so we're absolutely clear, nothing of any significance happened on this site in 1897. The sign says so.
Like the sign says, it's an "all natural cold-pressed snack to give your body what it deserves!" especially after you've been a bad boy! (Oh, it's a real product, all right!). A dollar fifty seems kind of high for what your bros would gladly give for free.
When you make 120 lb of anything, you better be sure that you don't accidentally make a better product. That's got to be intentional right from the start! Thankfully, that's what the company Sta-Lube of Rancho Dominguez, California, did. They made "intentionally better products," like this 120 lb drum of super white grease.

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:
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.
Aw, I had to step out earlier today and came back to the sad news that Robin Williams has died of an apparent suicide. He'll definitely be missed. *sniff*. I guess the genie is finally free.
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."
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?
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."
Is your favorite book listed? Peruse some detailed shots of the map below:

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.
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:
We've told you about the strange baby pears before on Neatorama, but I'm sure some of you haven't seen them before. So let's share in the
horror joy of these delicious baby pears, found at a supermarket in Beijing, China.
According to Rocket News 24, these "happy/joyful doll pears" are shaped when growing on trees with special molds to make them look like sleeping human babies.
Better eat 'em before they wake up!
In Frank Herbert's sci-fi series Dune, Arrakis is a desert planet, but in this diorama, it's a dessert planet inhabited by gummy creatures. CandyWarehouse created this majestic rendition of Paul Atreides riding the giant sandworm in candies:
Crafted from a 2-foot-long gummy worm, Haribo gummy bears, black licorice string, yellow sprinkles, and rock candy crystals! A scene from the great science fiction novel Dune by Frank Herbert. Here we see the giant gummy worm on the desert planet of Arrakis. Ridden by the powerful gummy bear Paul Atreides as he seeks to control the prescious "spice" melange, which gives those who ingest it extended life and some prescient awareness. Muad'Dib!
Like they say, he who controls the sugar, controls the universe! Take a look at more epic pics:
"Hold on Newt. We're coming for you!"
Now this is the coolest LEGO MOC outside of LV-426!
Missing Brick has created iconic scenes from James Cameron's 1986 sci-fi movie Aliens entirely out of LEGO bricks. Take a look at a few examples from the Aliens attack scene:
Ripley: They cut the power
Hudson: What do you mean, "*They* cut the power?" How could they cut the power, man? They're animals!

Surf. Sand. Library.
Now those are three words that usually don't go together, but there's no reason they shouldn't. Herman Kompernas built a library on the sandy beach of the Bulgarian Black Sea resort of Albena and stocked it with over 2,500 books in 10 languages.
Guy Tarrant [auto-sound] is an artist and a teacher, and he's got the war trophies to prove it. In this "Confiscation Cabinets," Tarrant and contributors Mercedes Philips and Kim Campbell exhibited his collection of some 250 confiscated things over the past 30 years from 150 different schools in and around London.
Toys and sweets make up a big part of the collection, but there are also bottles of alcohol and actual and makeshift weapons that look like they belong in prison rather than grade schools. The exhibition was on display at The Museum of Childhood in East London, and is on display at the Life Science Centre, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, until November 2014.
Yes, that's a homemade axe confiscated from a Year 7 boy (students at this grade usually are of the age of eleven to thirteen). Tarrant noted that many of the confiscated items are from students with social, emotional and behavioral difficulties.
With over 20 years of experience, Sam should know that fireworks "will add a special touch to any event" ... including divorces. Because you know, what better way to end your marriage than with a bang?
Fart, as you know, is a terribly effective weapon. It's only problem is aim and distance. You can't aim the bad smell and it's only effective in small areas. Until now.
First, you need a cardboard box and some tape:
Cut a round hole in the box to complete the air cannon, then test it out:
