This Week at Neatorama

The back-to-school rush is on! If the schools in your area haven't started already, they will soon. Stores are busy with parents shopping for new clothing and supplies for their students. Among all the required items, you might want to give your kids something special and different to encourage their efforts and let them know how much you care, so check out the featured back to school stuff in the NeatoShop! And even if you don't have kids, you'll want to catch up on all the things you might have missed this week at Neatorama.

Jill Harness wrote about The Spicy History of Your Favorite Spices.

John Farrier gave us 11 Facts You Might Not Know about Kung Fu.

Eddie Deezen told us the story of The Strangest At-Bat in History, 60 years to the day after it happened.

Uncle John's Bathroom Reader filled us in on the making of the movie Plan 9 From Outer Space in the article I Remember Ed Wood.

The Cingulate Cortex Does Everything came from The Annals of Improbable Research.

From mental_floss magazine, we learned about Peter Deunov: How One Man Saved Bulgaria's Jews.

At NeatoBambino, we often post videos of cute kids. Last weekend, one featured the son of our social media guru David Israel, in Geek Toddler Reviews iCade for the iPad.

We teamed up with Geeks Are Sexy to bring you the latest edition of the Tokyoflash Treasure Hunt. Congratulations to the winners, posted here.

In this week's What Is It? game, the object pictured is indeed a fireman’s sand bucket, with a round bottom to keep anyone from using it for anything else. The earliest correct answer came from Bill, but due to a technical glitch on my part, it was not posted. The first correct answer posted came from Berhard, so we are awarding t-shirts to both of them. There were a lot of wonderfully funny answers! A t-shirt goes to Edward for the suggestion that this is Pa Kettle’s bowling bag.
