Things You Should Have Seen on Neatorama this Week

This is the first of what will become a weekly installment commemorating our new partnership with neatorama. In these weekly segments I will be delivering a small subsection of the GOBS of interesting content they have to offer. So without further ado here are a couple you missed this week if for some reason you are procrastinating on a lesser site. (the sift excluded of course)

The above image is part of Neatoramas weekly
"What is it Game" - Personally I have yet to figure one out, and lord knows I've tried everything, from meditating to looking at the image header for clues (no dice btw), but it is fun reading back over it later and finding out from smarter denizens of the net.

If that doesn't get your neurons firing then you should take a look at the different perspectives on the end of the world. Christianity's take should be familiar to many:


Things Get Bad: At least according to the Book of Revelation, things will be very bad indeed. Weeping, gnashing of teeth, rending of garments, blood in the streets, etc. All of this will occur during "the Tribulation [wiki]."

And Then: the Second Coming of Christ, wherein Christ - to quote the Nicene Creed - "comes again in glory to judge the living and the dead."

Until: the Rapture [wiki], wherein all Christians (or at least good ones, depending on your particular denomination) are moved from earth directly to heaven with no dying or passing Go.

but if you are interested in learning about the perspectives of other faiths including Buddhism, Hinduism, and the Branch Davidians then neatorama has you covered with an apocalyptic perspective.

I think this image speaks for its self.

But Alex was kind enough to track down a translation of the packaging.

Another oddity, although in a more classically western format, is this abstract villa that transforms the Spanish country side.

Finally two more links that I couldn't stick into my narrative without even more superfluous adjectives and transitive verbs:

Choppy the Two Face Pig

And our very own Ant getting a shout out, I am not sure how he has time to get around as much as he does.

The Most Unpopular Decision Ever

Some of you have no doubt noticed the queue swelling in size with the recent hike to 10 votes per video. In fact it has been sitting at between 220 and 230 for a couple of days, and we feel like that is just too many submissions to ask people to sift through. So what did we decide to do about it?


We are going to reduce queued video submissions from 4 - 3 for non charter members, and from 8 - 6 for charter members... I know it's horrible and unfair, but the upside to this is that the gem you posted last week that got passed over now has a new lease on life... well OK only if you post it again, but the idea is that a smaller queue makes it easier for us to do what we have been doing, which is sifting up quality video gold.

As always feel free to rant, rave, and damn my soul inside.

On Second Thoughts, I Cant Be A***d

EDIT: Just forget all this. I didn't think any of you would want to help any way. This was a long shot. I love videosift as much as any other member does, but im pretty sure that most of you, reading the *offtopic post would care, and would enjoy posting many complaints against this.

So i must rely, once again, on my favourite member, lucky, to delete this post please.
