This Week at Neatorama

The vernal equinox is tomorrow evening (7:21PM EDT), which means our long snowy winter will officially be over! There was a lot of stuff going on this week at Neatorama- we don't want you to miss a bit of it, so here are the highlights:

In spring, a young geek's fancy turns to thoughts of love, so Jill Harness rounded up some inspiration with 10 More Geeky Love Songs.

Phil Haney sorted out the many different lineups of our favorite bands over the years in The Replacement Musicians.

We had a guest post from author Stephen Rebello called Five Things You Didn’t Know About Alfred Hitchcock in honor of Alfred Hitchcock Day last Saturday.

Uncle John's Bathroom Reader filled us in on The Science of Moving Pictures.

From the Annals of Improbable Research came the classic battle of Coke vs. Pepsi: The Pioneers.

We also got A Brief and Incomplete Timeline of T-Shirt History, courtesy of our friends at mental_floss magazine. By the way, mental_floss is experiencing some website issues (cough*hackers*cough), but a team of very expensive geeks are working to have that cleared up soon!

At NeatoBambino, Tiffany marveled at the surprising things young children say in Out Of The Mouth Of Babes: Part 1. Oh yeah, there's a giveaway involved for your participation! Look for part two coming this week.

In the Name That Weird Invention! contest, Scott-O had a winning entry with the name First Eye’d Kit, and nik said he’d call it the Emergen-See Kit. Both win t-shirts from the NeatoShop!

We had an extra contest on Saturday, in the post Say What, Batman? Your mission: to provide a funny explanation leading up to the posted Batman and Robin comic panel. Larry won a t-shirt for his scenario, and Clippy pasted together an entire comic for his entry, but didn't select a t-shirt.

The What Is It? game came up on Thursday. Once again, the very first comment had the correct answer! Berhard wins a t-shirt because he knew the device is a stanchion, to hold cattle still for milking or veterinary procedures. The funniest answer was from Stephen Bishop, who said it was an early prototype for a mammogram! However, he didn’t select a t-shirt.
