This Week at Neatorama

As we all pause and remember the destruction of the World Trade Center nine years ago today (as well as the Pentagon attack and the plane crash in Pennsylvania), you might want to take a look at what the memorial on the WTC site will eventually look like with a virtual tour from Google Earth that we told you about last May. And you'll want to catch up on any of our exclusive articles you may have missed this past week.

Johnny Cat continues his series about how Hollywood treats all kinds of subjects with In the Movies: Dams.

I atoned for a faux pas in an earlier post by doing some research and finding out The Truth Behind Big Ben.

It's wild to see how many connections television shows have with each other, as we found out from John Farrier in 12 Fun Facts about Lost in Space .

David Israel caught up with the toy artist who never fails to delight us. Find out more in his Interview with Sillof.

Steven R. Johnson added to the Museum of Possibilities with a new entry about hats, er, shoes, er, hats in Fashion Misstatements.

Our new collaboration with the site Annals of Improbable Research gave us A Crusade Against the Quest for the Holy Grail.

From mental_floss, we learned how some food regimens came about in The History of Diets.

From Uncle John's Bathroom Reader, we got the lowdown on the mysterious sites of Pompeii and Herculaneum in The Lost Cities.

We were excited to find that Neatoramanaut Marty McGuire had a viral with his delightful video of penguins chasing a butterfly! And we're glad that we were a part of that success.

Mal and Chad's Fill in the Bubble Frenzy has a winner. Congratulations to this week's winner, Matt, who said "I think you misheard! I wanted PteriYAKI!"

Be sure to check out the NeatoHub for lots more neat things from all over the internet. Have a great weekend!
