This Week at Neatorama

There is so much going on a Neatorama, we sometimes forget that neato stuff happens outside the site, too! This week, our fearless leader Alex was a guest on The Social Blade Show. Yeah, it's an hour long, but it's a talk show, so you can listen while doing something else. Skip ahead to the 31-minute mark for the Neatorama stuff.

John Farrier of NeatoGeek had a feature on the main blog this week, Landlocked Navies of the World and Johnny Cat gave us In the Movies: Drive-In Movie Theaters.

Alex was busy collecting Yankee Doodle Fun Facts for the holiday, and 5 Neat & Quick Facts About the Vuvuzela for the World Cup tournament.

There were more fun facts at NeatoBambino in the post Holy Moly, Roly Poly! concerning those little bugs that roll up in your hand.

From Steven M. Johnson's Museum of Possibilities, we learned about The Enemy at the Door and Sleeping on the Job.

The Bygone Practice of Foot Binding in China was a painful post for me to write, but a fascinating subject nevertheless.

From mental_floss magazine, you saw what happens When Propaganda Backfires, and from Uncle John's Bathroom Reader, we had The Curse of the Little Rascals as a followup to last week's Little Rascals.

We added three new artists to the Art Blog: painter Dustin Timbrook, photographer Josh Martin, and folk art painter Ellen Eilers. Congratulations to Christine DePalma and Terry Barrall, who won calendars featuring Ellen Eiler's art in the contest we ran in Eiler's gallery post. See, there's more than one reason to visit the Neatorama Art Blog!

Oh yeah, we had lots more winners. Congratulations to Edward, who correctly guessed the "pain bullet" in the What Is It? game this week, and to DCMikeRotch, who guessed wrongly but entertainingly. Both won t-shirts from the NeatoShop.

NeatoGeek had its first caption competition this week. Congratulations to Augie, who won a t-shirt from the NeatoShop! So many people participated that the NeatoGeek caption competition just might become a regular feature.

We partnered with Fark to bring you this week's Tokyo Flash Treasure Hunt. Congratulations to winners nexusg4, hopscotch0623, numonohimax, and funkyeuph, who won prizes from Tokyo Flash or the NeatoShop.

At mental_floss, the How Did You Know contest wrapped up on Wednesday with all the answers revealed. Congratulations to overall winner Jimmy Luth, and everyone who won prizes from the NeatoShop!

You've still got a week to get your videos ready for the GTFO competition, in which an iPad is up for grabs! Get the particulars at our YouTube page.
