A Totally Exhaustive Guide to the Food of Seinfeld

Are those pretzels making you thirsty? Will you only eat a marbled rye from Schnitzer's? Do you secretly wonder if horses actually love Beef-A-Reeno? If so, you're probably a Seinfeld fan (and if not, those last three questions probably sound like nonsense).

For those that love the show about nothing, food has a special role in the universe of pointlessness. A mention of muffin tops doesn't bring to mind love handles, but the thought of whole trashbags of muffin stumps.

For a complete rundown of every food reference in the show, this extensive Flavorwire article is a must-read -and it might just make you hungry for a Big Salad.

This Squirrel Is Having the Darndest Time With This Cherry Tomato

(Video Link)

I have always been a fan of cherry tomatoes, even as a kid when I couldn't seem to eat one without spraying a trail of seeds all over the place. Apparently, I'm not alone as this little squirrel also seems to have troubles eating the sweet, round fruit despite the imense difficulty he is having.

The Most Dangerous Hiking Trails In The World

(Video Link)

Nature is a beautiful but terrifying place and in most places, the more off the grid you go, the more danger you're likely to encounter. The hiking trails featured on this TopTenz article prove that getting back to nature also means getting back to the danger, whether that means rough terrain, deadly heights, or terrifying bridges.

Say "Hello" To Kaika & Kelekona

We love our reader's pets, which is why when fan Jenn Hyland posted this picture in response to our Facebook post featuring Pug-ster eggs, I was all too excited to share her little babies with everyone.

Here's Kelekona's first Halloween costume.

And here's her cheer-ful second Halloween costume.

You can tell she was a hit by how many candies she got -especially those precious full-sized bars.

Kelekona traded in the cheer uniform for some pig skin for her third Halloween, when she was joined by Kaika, who celebrated her first Halloween in stripe-tastic style.

Nowadays, the duo doesn't just dress up for Halloween. Here they are in some sweet summer duds as part of an apartment wide costume contest.

Thanks to Jenn for letting us share her beautiful little lizards -and for anyone out there who wants to see their favorite pet on the site, feel free to send your photos to jill@neatorama.com!

Watch This Fennec Fox Flip Out Over A Reunion With His Best Friend

(Video Link)

Little Rupert was taken in by the International Primate Rescue when he was just four weeks old. It was there that he met his best friend, a big, fluffy cat named William. He was later seperated from William so he could be introduced to other fennecs, but here the two are reunited and as you can see, it feels so good.

The Game of Thrones Recap You Never Knew You Wanted

(Video Link)

Warning: The video has language that's NSF and, obviously, spoilers

Game of Thrones is returning on Sunday and just because Key & Peele are on vacation doesn't mean these two nerds were going to miss out on the chance to geek out over the show. Their valet characters are a perfect pair for summing up the first four seasons in the most ridiculous way they know how.

Which Reese's Peanut Butter Treat Maximizes Your Peanut Butter?

I've always preferred Reese's Eggs over plain Reese's cups. I assumed it was because of the ratio of chocolate to peanut butter, but I've had other people look at me like I was crazy when I said that. But now science is on my side!

If you've always wanted to know which Reese's product will give you the most peanut butter to chocolate goodness, then you owe a debt of gratitude to Redditor Rustid who has done the research for all of us Reese's lovers.

This Artist's Food Paintings Make My Mind Melt

As cool as a cucumber? No man, that's just bananas. Japanese artist Hikaro Cho is an amazing artist -to the point where he transforms one food into a completely different food. 

What's that? A funny-looking baby eggplant? I think you better handle it carefully because if not...

Well, I guess I had the "egg" part right when I said eggplant.

Dogging Is A Lot Harder Than It Looks

(Video Link)

Yo dog, I heard you like to catch balls, run around, jump and otherwise act silly, but you're kinda failing at all those things in this video. What's up with that, dog? 

Well, at least they look cute.

The Avengers As Mythological Chinese Immortals

There are Eight Immortals in Chinese mythology and while their stories are pretty darn fascinating, I can't help but want to hear some of the amazing myths about the eight Avenger immortals painted by Chinese Illustrator and Weibo user Xia-a

The choice of which Avenger fills the role of which Immortal isn't just random. For example, He Xiangu is Black Widow, which is appropriate because "He Xiangu is the only female among the Eight Immortals, as Black Widow is among the Avengers. She is often seen with lotus flowers.”

10 Things You Can't Name Your Kids

We previously talked about how Batman Suparman is a bona fide criminal, but did you know Superman Leisten was banned from Sweden -well, his name at least. The judge ruled that the name Superman was too close to a surname so his parents had to pick something else. This decision was found particularly questionable given that names like Tarzan and Batman were both allowed before that.

And that's just one of the ten weird stories of names that were banned in certain countries. There's even one story that takes place in the US. So read the rest of the list at Top Tenz.

Horrifying Prehistoric Creatures That Aren't Dinosaurs

If you're scared of snakes then you certainly wouldn't be a big fan of the Titanoboa -the largest snake in history. This creepy critter stretched out 40 feet in length and weighed up to 2,500 pounds. The Titanoboa  appeared right as the dinosaurs started to disappear, which left it a great niche to fill as a top predator. I've heard rumors of man-eating snakes, but all of those have proven to be fictional -on the other hand, this guy could easily munch down on a man.

He is Vigo! You are like the buzzing of flies to him!

Redditor Sloppy_Episiotomy posted this picture of his baby's nursery saying, "The wifey said I have to take this down from my daughter's nursery immediately or she's taking the baby and leaving me." While some sites, like Nerd Approved have claimed that this is not appropriate decor for a baby's room, others have argued that it's a perfect way to start indoctrinating your children to love geeek culture from a young age. It's also a great option if you want your child to get possessed by a god. What do you guys think?

Cannoli Donuts Are the Best of Both Worlds

Donuts are delicious and so are cannolis, but the best part of the cannoli is certainly the inside, while the deep-fried dough of the donuts is heavenly. So why not stuff the donut with cannoli filling? The creator at Oh Bite It warns that these are dangerously addicting and you might find they disappear before your very eyes.

This Puppy Was Adopted After Five Years When His Picture Went Viral

No kill animal shelters are wonderful, but while it's better than being put to sleep, when animals are left up for adoption for years, it is still a big bummer to both the animals and the volunteers. That happened to little Chester. He was at the shelter for five years and volunteers were heartbroken to see the sweet pooch get overlooked time and time again. That's when they decided to post the picture above.

Within a matter of hours, the Facebook image was shared 6,000 times. Someone suggested they make a page just for Chester and the page now has over 6,000 views. While Chester, of course, was adopted almost immediately, the shelter plans to keep Chester's Facebook alive to help promote the adoption of other long-term residents.

Peep Out These Totally Charming Artworks Made From Peeps

We've featured Peep dioramas in the past, but the Carroll County Arts Council's Peep Show takes things beyond mere dioramas (though they still have a few of those too). Their delightful display transcends a variety of art forms, including sculptures made from Peeps and paintings based on our favorite overly-sweet Easter treats.

If you live in the area, you can still make it to the show, but hurry because tomorrow is its last day. You can eve buy some of the artworks if you so please. As for the rest of us, we'll just have to settle for this slideshow from Refinery 29 featuring a few art pieces in the current exhibit and the Carroll Arts Center's Flickr that features many of the Peeps creations from past years.

A Quick History of Cadbury Eggs

If you're among the many, many people out there who recently gulped down the sugary filling from a Cadbury Egg today, chances are you probably didn't think for a second about how that particular Easter confection got its start. But the story of the Cadbury Egg is surprisingly interesting. 

It all started in 1824, when John Cadbury opened up a shop in Birmingham, England. No, it wasn't a candy shop -it was a cafe. In 1831, he and his brother decided to open a factory to produce better drinking chocolate for the cafe. It wasn't until much later that Cadbury even started working on making moldable chocolate and his famous egg wasn't born until 1875. The eggs we eat today weren't created until almost 100 years later though.

These Rats Are Beyond Adorable

Did you know yesterday was World Rat Day? I sure didn't but I'm glad that I found out even if it was a little late. So what is World Rat Day and why do rats need their own holiday?

Because rats get a bum rap, but they actually make pretty great pets. Rats are smart, friendly and surprisingly cuddly. World Rat Day aims to educate people about rat ownership and to help spread the good word about these adorable little friends.

To celebrate World Rat Day, Bored Panda started an open list of adorable rat pictures. It started with 18, but since they allowed users to submit their own, there are now over 150. Even if you missed the big day, you can still enjoy these precious pics.

The interaction of elements is a fascinating field as they make up the building blocks of life, but unless you're a chemist, you might not remember how certain elements react to one another. Fortunately for you, this delightful video by the European Commission European Research Area is here to illustrate these interactions.

Travel the High Seas With Your Fellow Geeks!

If you've been thinking about going on a cruise but have been waiting until you found one that was best suited to your geeky interests, then I have good news for you -you now have two different nerdtastic options. Option #1 is this year's Comic Con At Sea, which will be taking place in June. This floating convention will offer guests from Star Trek, Supernatural, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Battlestar Galactica, Stargate, Justified and more as it arrives to an array of famous European destinations including Rome, Barcelona and Naples. 

For those who prefer their travel to have a little more levity, Musician Jonathan Coulton has just announced plans for his sixth annual JoCo Cruise. This Caribbean cruise will depart next February and while most guests have yet to be announced, travelers are promised a bevy of comedic, musical and geeky entertainment -including a 24-hour tabletop gaming room.

So my nerdy travellers, which one would you prefer to board?

Make Your Own Galaxy Easter Eggs

Well then these eggs from Dream A Little Bigger are sure to help. These beautifully spacy eggs are filled with stars, nebulas and more.

The process is surprisingly simple -though quite messy, and the results are absolutely striking.

Peeps Skillet S'mores Make Easter Droolworthy

There are a lot of people out there who find Peeps just too sugary with no depth of flavor. These Peeps peanutbutter chocolate skillet s'mores featured on How Sweet It Is offer a wonderful way to fix that problem. 

Not only is the sugary-sweetness of the Peeps slightly negated by the other ingredients, but the pure sugar on the outside of the marshmallows is given a chance to break down and caramelize, making the Peeps themselves more complex and delicious. Whether you love Peeps or hate them, if you like s'mores, you'd probably love this recipe. I know I'm going to run out and buy some Peeps right now.

A Collection of Photos Of Cops Being Awesome

No matter how you feel about the police system in general, it's hard to deny that it can be hard to be a cop. Whether it's getting in the middle of a domestic violence dispute, witnessing a horrific crime scene or dealing with the painful monotomy of a small town with practically no crime, police have to deal with a lot.

Of course, some police have a sense of humor (and a soft spot) too and these great pictures on Mashable prove it.

The Best April Fool's Day Pranks of 2015

Yes, April Fool's Day is over and you're a jerk if you're still trying to pull any pranks on your friends or co-workers. But it's still not to late to enjoy some of the greatest April Fool's pranks performed by some of the biggest companies on the net.

Quite a few of the pranks revolve around making prouducts for pets, which is pretty typical of the internet. But I still kind of wish Groupon's transportation service that uses feline drivers was a real thing.

That being said, there were far too many "pranks" that seem more like things that will exist in a short period of time -like the KINDLR dating service that will match you based on the books you like or the muscle business shirt above. Perhaps most depressingly is Twitter's selfie stick that promises to auto-post your selfies to Twitter -I think every teen I've seen over the last year would love that.

Inventions That Make Hair In A Can Seem Brilliant

They say necessity of the mother of invention and while it certainly plays a role in most good creations, there are others inventions that must have been borne from madness, arogance or just plain stupidity. TopTenz has compiled an excellent list of just such creations ranging from the car spittoon (above) to a Razr phone that is actually equipped with a working electric razor.

Of course, not everything that seems to be an immediate failure is actually worthless. TNT is on the list not because the invention was a failure, but because it was not very good at its initial purpose, which was to work as a yellow dye. Personally, I'm glad that didn't work out as I'd hate to be wearing a tee shirt that could explode at any given time.

Contrary to popular belief, bats can be absolutely adorable. We at Neatorama have proven this time and time again with cute videos and photos of baby bats. And here's another one! Just look at little Frank here trying to eat a banana bigger than his head and you'll see why we're batty over bats.

Forget Futons, These Are More Like Cute-ons

I don't know about you guys, but ever since watching Despicable Me, I've dreamed of having a Minion of my own. I don't mean a traditional minion that helps me acheive my evil goals -(though that would be nice too), but a cute yellow Minion that loves bananas and talks in non-sensical gibberish. While that may be an impossibility for now, at least I can settle for the next best thing thanks to Etsy seller SleepingPalace, who makes full-sized minion beds for geeks like me to snuggle in.

For those that instead have a soft spot for a certain friendly neighbor, SleepingPalace also offers Totoro beds for you to cuddle up with. As for me, I think I'll take one of each.
