This Week at Neatorama

What happened at Neatorama this past week? We had lots of links and videos, and some exclusive articles you don't want to miss. Oh yeah, and contests, too!

Jill rounded up Preposterous Pet Pampering Products and Services that are actually available for people to whom price is no object when taking care of their dogs.

David Israel interviewed Ken Denmead from Geek Dad about raising geek kids and his new book entitled Geek Dad. Congratulations to Ian Worcester, Benjamin Szilagyi, and Lide Winburn, who won copies of the book!

From mental_floss magazine, we reprinted How Violence Increases Our Vocabulary, about new words born of wartime.

From Uncle John's Bathroom Reader, we brought you a crash course in Fire 101. I don't know about you, but I learned some new things about fire!

Over at mental_floss, Neatorama co-sponsored the How Did You Know? contest that ran over five days, presented many strange challenges, and gave away lots of prizes! Congratulations to winners Margaret Cunniff and Leah Alpert, who solved all the puzzles, and to everyone who won prizes!

The What Is It? game ran on Thursday. I will add the winners here when Alex announces them.

Wish List Wednesday returned this week. Congratulations to winners Nick Fabiani, Heather Kallinger, and Xakana! Be ready when the Wednesday Wish List comes around again by registering an account at the Neato Shop.

Alex announced the Upcoming Queue competition in which one submitter will win an iPad and two more will win $50 in Neato Shop merchandise! The contest will run through the end of May. So far, you guys are doing a wonderful job of spotting hot links on the internet before I have a chance to post them! I predict the key to winning will be persistence, as some competitors may give up or slow down long before the contest is over.
