This Week at Neatorama

The first week of January means back to work! And put the Christmas decorations away! Mine are packed, except for that last box, which is waiting for the kids to take the rest of the candy out of their Christmas stockings so I can box them up for next year. They don't want to do that because without a name on the container, a sibling might claim the candy. But that's what's what dresser drawers are for! Anyway, we are headed into the only season I don't particularly like: the cold stretch between the holidays and the first flowers. But we will make it through, with the help of some interesting, amusing, and educational content on the internet. You'll find the best of it here at Neatorama!

Jill Harness gave us two features this week, beginning with 10 Amazing Stories of Animal Prosthetics.

And her article Fast Food Flavors You Won’t Find In The US was the most-commented-on post of the week.

How to Write a Ph.D. Dissertation from the Annals of Improbable Research found its way into graduate student forums and provided some comic relief for those currently going through the process.

Mental_floss magazine gave us 5 Habits of Highly Effective Outlaws.

And Tipper vs. Music came to us courtesy of Uncle John's Bathroom Reader.

At NeatoBambino this week, we learned where to get toy tattoo guns for our kids, how to interrogate a baby, and how a toddler's brain is organized -or rather, disorganized.

In the What Is It? game this week, the very first answer was correct -it’s a form for baking bread (or a “bread mold” which sounds like a fungus). Anker wins a t-shirt from the NeatoShop for knowing that! The funniest answer came from The Professor, who said, “It’s a good old-fashioned can of whoop-ass!” he wins a t-shirt, too! See the answers to all the mystery items of the week at the What Is It? blog.

When you're caught up on everything from this week, you can access past feature articles at The Best of Neatorama. And have a great weekend!
