This Week at Neatorama

All of us at Neatorama are pretty proud of the new line of Zombie products in the NeatoShop -they've been featured on blogs all over the internet! The Magnetic Dead and the Zombie Doorstops are hand-crafted by Odd Art Fabrications. There will be more zombie items available, too -sooner or later. Meanwhile, you'll want to catch up on everything that's been going on here at Neatorama.

New author Adrienne Crezo posted her first Neatorama feature article, The Sixth Sense and Beyond, which has nothing to do with ESP, on Wednesday.

Eddie Deezen told us the story of The Beatles' Strangest Gig.

The Annals of Improbable Research gave us Chernoff and the Face Value of Numbers.

Putting Liberty on a Pedestal was our Fourth of July selection from Uncle John's Bathroom Reader.

Deconstructing the Color Wheel was republished from mental_floss magazine.

Over at NeatoBambino, you'll always find something interesting, even if you aren't looking for news and information on babies and children. For example, watching happy toddlers laughing will make you smile.

In this week's What Is It? game, the mysterious object is an anvil for hand forming sheet metal with a hammer, for making armor or other curved metal parts, also called sinking or doming. Berhard knew that, and said so in the very first comment! For that, he wins a t-shirt. As for the funniest answer, greg urbano said, “it is a discarded reflecting dish used by aliens to gauge their distance from the earth as they approach for landing, similar to the reflectors we placed on the moon to bouce laser beams back, im almost certain of this because i have seen this on other planets during my travels.” However, he did not select a shirt. You can see more picture of this anvil in use at the What Is It? blog.
