This Week at Neatorama

Why is the Neatobot holding a Canadian flag? Because Canada Day is coming up on Friday, July 1st! OK, that's our look ahead. Now let's take a look back over the past week and see if there's anything you might have missed here at Neatorama. The weekend is a great time to catch up!

On Wednesday, Jill Harness told us about Six Seriously Strange Animal Adaptations. Mother Nature, you scary!

We took a trip back in time with Eddie Deezen's remembrance of The Beatles on The Ed Sullivan Show.

The nostalgia trip continued with 17 Facts You Might Not Know about Bonanza from John Farrier.

We learned about the beginning of professional wrestling as we know it in The Man in the Mask from Uncle John's Bathroom Reader.

Mental_floss magazine gave us 5 Comic Superheroes Who Made A Real-World Difference.

The Sound-ness of Tree Falls gave us a glimpse into how scientific research is really done, courtesy of The Annals of Improbable Research.

Giveaways! This week saw the return of the Tokyo Flash Treasure Hunt. I'll slide the winners' names in here as soon as I get them.

Another prize giveaway is still open for entries. Read the instructions for What's In The Box? Transformers and you might win some nice movie swag! At least, that's MY guess as to what's in the box...

This week's What Is It? game came up a day earlier than usual, and we got a winner faster than usual.

Ladybuggs knew this was a knife designed to be used in a life raft. Here’s the description from Rob at the What Is It? blog:
A US Navy life raft knife, part of the survival kit on a life raft, cork handle so it floats, holes make it lighter, rounded end so it won’t puncture the raft, painted orange so it can be seen if lost overboard, also a lanyard to tie it to the raft

The Professor had the funniest answer -a hedgehog quill-scraper! Both winners will receive a t-shirt from the NeatoShop!
