This Week at Neatorama

Just in case you were busy this past week packing up Christmas decorations or digging out of the snow, here's what you can catch up on from the past week at Neatorama!

At NeatoBambino, we saw a series of kids with amazing accomplishments this week! Read about the 11-year-old who is building a house, a 2-year-old who can identify US presidents, and a 10-year-old who discovered a supernova! And I can't even get my kids to load the dishwasher.

Jill Harness gave us the stories of 11 Amazing Animals That Saved Lives.

In the Museum of Possibilities, we learned about the Bike Vest, which is both a vest AND a bike!

Uncle John's Bathroom Reader had several Cold Cases that still haven't been completely solved.

We got a dose of science gone wacky in Feline Reactions to Bearded Men from the Annals of Improbable Research.

From our friends at mental_floss magazine, we saw The Confederacy's Plan to Conquer Latin America.

There were a lot of entries Monday in the Name That Weird Invention! contest. First prize goes to inky for StairChaise. The second place winner was steamtroll for the Stratolounger. Third place: DS for the name Lofty-Boy, and in fourth place was yuck2me for Loft-o-Lounger. T-shirts from the NeatoShop go out to the two winners who posted shirt selections with their entry! Honorable mentions: The Over-Study, The ChairCase; Over Easy Chair, Chairway to Heaven, Thermo-Chair, The Vertigo Lounger, Decliner, and Reclimber.

Wednesday brought another chance to win with Mal and Chad's Fill in the Bubble Frenzy! Mysfyt had the winning line: “Avast, I be Peg-eye the pirate.” and wins a T-shirt from the NeatoShop!

In the What Is It? game on Thursday, Vince had the right answer: the device is to hold logs while they are cut! Kelly gets the funniest answer prize for “The jawbone of a Domokun.” She was the first of many to see a Domo-kun in this device. Both win t-shirts from the NeatoShop!

Congratulations to the December winners of the How Did You Know? contests co-sponsored by Neatorama at mental_floss: Chelsea Tymms, Nate Littlefield, Aaron Sugar, and Gabe Jacquez all win prizes from the NeatoShop!
