This Week at Neatorama

Those of you who read the comments here at Neatorama know that the remaining writers are a thick-skinned bunch. We welcome comments, both kudos and criticism, but we have a couple of rules: we will delete comments that are personal attacks on other Neatoramanauts, we will edit or delete comments with particularly bad language, and of course, we remove spam. Other than that, we encourage a lively but mannerly debate about the things we post. And if you have suggestions for making Neatorama better, we'd love to hear them!

This week, Disney theme park fan Jill Harness gave us the lowdown on one of Walt Disney World's biggest attractions with Neatorama Facts: Space Mountain.

In the What Is It? game this week, Robert McLaughlin was the first to correctly state that the mystery object is a canary cage for a coal mine -here’s an explanation.
