This Week at Neatorama

Don't forget to set your clocks back tonight! Daylight Saving Time ends in the US, with the exception of... oh, just read about it in Neatolicious Fun Facts: Daylight Saving Time. Here are the other Neatorama exclusives you'll want to catch up on from this week:

Stacy rounded up Movie Trivia: Back to the Future for the trilogy's 25th anniversary.

It's a hard job, but somebody's gotta do it. Jill investigated Disneyland (again) for Neatorama Facts: The Jungle Cruise.

I found myself learning about Akron, Ohio in Neatolicious Fun Facts: Marbles.

Over at NeatoBambino, Tiffany confronted the fairly new concept of Midterms For Preschoolers, and decided it might not be such a bad idea after all.

Steven R. Johnson designed fashion accessories for Burdened Office Workers to go in the Museum of Possibilities.

From Uncle John's Bathroom Reader comes the story of Human Oil (and Other Hoaxes). Uncle John also launched a Holiday Sale!

The Annals of Improbable Research reported on What’s Cooking at the Museum of Burnt Food.

Birds of a Feather from mental_floss magazine gave us three strange poultry stories.

We launched our first giveaway for the new literary sub-blog BitLit, in which you can Win Free Autographed Copies of Overwinter! Instructions are in the giveaway post.

The winners for the October 29th Name That Weird Invention contest are Noah, who suggested "Colostocamp", and Hannah for "Loitering Within Tent". Both win t-shirts from the NeatoShop! Congratulations to both winners, and to the Honorable Mentions listed in the contest post.

In Mal and Chad's Fill in the Bubble Frenzy, congratulations go out to winner tyson, who said, "If you elbow me off, I'm just going to come after you on that rhino." That's good enough to win a t-shirt from the NeatoShop!

In the What Is It? Game, the mysterious object is a Japanese traveling candlestick, it's missing the part that would have caught the wax. Oskar got it right first, but didn't specify a T-shirt. Congratulations to Cristal who said "Mr. Burns' liver spot locator," and won the prize for the funniest answer.

If you missed this week's Neato-Puzzle, you still have time to try it out.

Elsewhere, GeekDad did a nice writeup on the new fiction sub-blog, BitLit, including a talk with curator David Israel.

Once you've caught up on Neatorama, check out other great links from around the web at the NeatoHub. And then get your holiday shopping done early by ordering from the NeatoShop! Have a great weekend!
