This Week at Neatorama

The time of year is upon us, when grown children take their first steps into the real world. How many Neatoramanauts are graduating from college or high school this year? If you are, please let us know! And if someone in your family is graduating, you are welcome to express your pride in the comments in this post. Congratulations, graduates, from Neatorama!

We had some neat features this past week you don't want to miss out on. Jill posted The 8 Best Mothers In The Animal Kingdom for a Mothers Day special last weekend.

Jill also brought us some interesting cinematic supplements in 8 Fan (Or Hater) Made Alternate Endings.

Joe Stalin vs. John Wayne is a very strange story that might not be all it seems, from Uncle John's Bathroom Reader.

The Annals of Improbable Research gave us To Sit or Not to Sit. It's about peeing. Between the article and the comments, I learned more about male urination than I ever thought I'd know.

Really Successful People Who Never Actually Existed is a roundup of strange cases from mental_floss magazine.

In the What Is It? game this week, Timbering was the first with the correct answer: this is a grab maul or a rigging hammer; it's used to set and remove a grab hook from a log. Jeffos won the award for the funniest answer: “It’s a training device for that game where they make you put your forehead on a bat, spin around, and then try to run a straight line. The spike keeps it in place.” Both win t-shirts from the NeatoShop!

You can still enter the giveaway from literary blog Bit Lit in which the prize is the book All Your Base Are Belong To Us -ten copies are up for grabs, so your chances are good! But don't put it off, winners will be announced Monday!

There are more ways to get your Neatorama fix: If you aren't checking our Facebook page every day, you're missing out on extra content, contests, discussions, and links you won't find here. Also, our Twitter feed will keep you updated on what's going around the web in real time.
