This Week at Neatorama

Hey, you know what would be a great last minute (or bonus) Father's Day gift? Bookmark Neatorama on his computer! That is, if he doesn't already visit us regularly. You'll be sharing neat stuff with Dad every day! Otherwise, I hope you've got plans to make Dad feel like it was all worth it raising you on the one day a year set aside for such honors.

We had a neat thing happen this week -Neatorama set a new record for the response to a single Facebook post. Thanks to everyone who liked, shared, and/or commented on it! And congratulations to our social media editor David Israel, who not only promotes the best stuff from Neatorama, but also shares extra non-blog internet treasures with those who follow our Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and Pinterest sites.

The What Is It? game is still open for your entries. Rob from the What Is It? blog is traveling, so we will post our winners shortly after he posts his official answers. In the meantime, there are t-shirts up for grabs, so get your entry in! Update: the winners have been chosen. See them here.

And we had some fine features this week, but you may not have had a chance to read them yet, so let's review:

Eddie Deezen brought us the story of Disney’s Folly: Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

David Israel wrote The 6 Types of People Who Watch/Don’t Watch HBO’s Girls.

From mental_floss magazine, we saw 7 Tiny Books That Packed a Big Punch.

The Sad Tale of Centralia was from Uncle John's Bathroom Reader.

And from The Annals of Improbable Research, we got Cosmic Headlights and the Origin of Gamma Ray Bursts.

The post that drew the most comments this past week was The The 6 Types of People Who Watch/Don’t Watch HBO’s Girls, followed by Game of Thrones Put George W. Bush’s Head on a Spike. Nothing else came close this week.

If you need yet more reading material to get you through the weekend, you'll find a complete listing of our long feature articles archived at The Best of Neatorama. Have a Happy Father's Day!
