This Week at Neatorama

You might have noticed that some images were missing from some posts this morning. Thanks to our programming expert, the issue was soon resolved and everything should be back to normal now! If you notice anything still awry, let us know.

To make sure you don't miss anything at Neatorama, here's what he did this past week. Jill Harness looked at internet advertising campaigns in the post Does Viral Marketing Make You Sick? with some examples of really cool videos that disappointed us when we later found them to be professional ads.

From mental_floss magazine, we had An Ode to Great Double X-Chromosomed Scientists, about three women who didn't get the credit they deserved for their work.

We learned about four Obscure Monsters from Uncle John's Bathroom Reader. Read about the Sciopod, Gowrow, Encantado (Boto), and the Kappa.

The NeatoShop welcomed Ben Rollman as a collaborative artist. He will draw a custom robot portrait of you or someone you love!

Congratulations to prize winners attorneyadrian and Jaded Unicorn for winning prizes in this week's What Is It? game!

Congratulations to Ben Dussault, Leah and Margaret, Ian, and Kim Kutz, who all won prizes in the How Did You Know? contest we sponsored in collaboration with mental_floss.

The Neatorama Mini-Hunt sent you searching for awesome things to win The Book of Awesome by Neil Pasricha.

And we're in the last few days of the Upcoming Queue competition, with an iPad at stake. Go take a look at the submissions and vote for the ones that should be featured on our main page!

You're invited to join in the discussion with the daily question at Facebook and keep up with even more neat links with our Twitter feed!
