This Week at Neatorama

I just flew in from Vegas, and boy, are my arms tired! I've been at Blog World Expo 2010, a trade convention of sorts for bloggers this weekend, which you will hear more about when I collect my wits. Meanwhile, that's why this weekend roundup is late. We apologize for any inconvenience. Here's what happened at Neatorama this week.

I looked up some Neatolicious Fun Facts on Giant Pumpkin Contests, and found a world I never knew existed.

David Israel snagged an interesting interview with's Benjamin Higginbotham.

Learn some interesting tidbits about the original Star Trek TV series in Neatolicious Fun Facts: Red Shirts.

New at the Museum of Possibilities: Covert Exercise Furniture, so you won't have unused equipment out where all can see.

This week's offering from the Annals of Improbable Research was Artificae Plantae: The Taxonomy, Ecology, and Ethnobotany of Simulacraceae. That means artificial plants.

From mental_floss magazine, we got The No-Budget Diner's Guide for help in eating things that cost nothing (but may make you feel a bit queasy).

There's nothing better to get you into the Halloween spirit than a movie! Enjoy I Was a Teenage Monster Movie from Uncle John's Bathroom Reader.

The winner in this week's Mal and Chad's Fill in the Bubble Frenzy is Coolpersob who said, "I wonder how many licks it will take to get to the center?"

Steven Johnson brought us the Name That Weird Invention competition. We have winners! First place goes to Craig, who suggested the name "Glockets", and the second place name is "The Smitten", suggested by Abby. Both win t-shirts from the NeatoShop!
