This Week at Neatorama

What a week this has been! March came in like a lion, alright. Tornadoes and strong thunderstorms both Wednesday and Friday left a trail of death and destruction across the Midwest. The Friday storms left me without internet access, so the weekend roundup is a day late. Let's keep our fingers crossed that March will keep the other end of the old saying as well, and go out like a lamb. Meanwhile, let's look back at what happened at Neatorama this past week.

Jill Harness wrote up Five Common Misconceptions About the Middle Ages.

She also wrote a feature for NeatoBambino called The Eight Toughest Babies in the World. Be sure to check out NeatoBambino every day!

The Annals of Improbable Research noticed the improbable number of research papers done on The Lazy Bureaucrat Problem.

To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the record-breaking basketball game, Eddie Deezen wrote The Night Wilt “The Stilt” Scored 100.

Mental_floss magazine gave us Putting Animals in Their Place.

The Unluckiest Train Ride came from Uncle John's Bathroom Reader.

In the What Is It? game this week,the pictured object is an M15 Grenade Launcher Sight. The first commenter in with the correct answer was Berhard, who wins a t-shirt for his efforts! The t-shirt for the funniest answer goes to villaridge, who said it was “one of the many scale models that Gene Rodenberry had made whilst he was fine tuning what the Enterprise space ship would look like.” See additional pictures of the grenade launcher sight and the answers to the other mystery items of the week at the What Is It? blog!

The most commented-on post of the week was a tie between Father Jailed Because Daughter Drew a Picture of a Gun and Annoying People Talking on Their Cell Phones? Jam ‘Em! Coming in third was Disney Closes New Habit Heroes Exhibit.
