This Week at Neatorama

There's a tendency for people to think that sometime after the holidays, everything goes "back to normal." That may be the case as far as your workplace goes, but here at Neatorama, there is never really a "normal" to go back to, because we are constantly working on ways to make your internet experience more enjoyable. I heard Alex say something about "making his plans for the year," which may refer to his diabolical scheme to take over the world, but more likely means there are new and exciting enhancements coming to Neatorama. I have no idea yet whether these will be quantum leaps, paradigm shifts, or just more and better stuff, but I'm sure it will be great for you and everyone who stops by to read Neatorama every day! Right now I want to help you catch up on what you might have missed over the New Year holiday this past week.   

Jill Harness introduced us to 11 Seriously Weird Chocolate-Coated Foods. These are the kinds of things you'll see more of in our food blog Neatolicious.

Eddie Deezen gave us two interesting articles: The Record Company That Rejected The Beatles and 10 Facts You May Not Know About James Bond.

Short Story: The Mini
told us all about the famous British car, courtesy of Uncle John's Bathroom Reader.

And mental_floss magazine brought us The Haka.

Congratulations to the winners of the Predict Life in the Year 2013 contest! Neatoramanauts The Professor, Craig L, and Azog all won fabulous prizes from the NeatoShop. You'll get a kick out of reading the crazy predictions everyone made for this year!

In the What Is It? game this week, we had a set of National Cash Register grocery store price stamps from the 1920s. The first with the correct answer was mowog, who wins a t-shirt from the NeatoShop! The funniest (yet wrong) answer came from moddycurl, who said, "This was the prototype for the 64 box of crayons, back when the world was all black and white." Yep, that wins a t-shirt, too! See the answers to all this week's What Is It? items at the What Is It? blog.

The most-viewed-or-shared post this week was An Apt Description, followed by Happy New Year 2013, Neatoramanauts! and coming in third was the Boba Fett Star Wars Hooded Bathrobe.
