It takes a special kind of time traveler to enjoy fish sticks and custard together, but when you make cookies that look like fish sticks, it's a whole different story.

If you've ever received a box of Christmas treats that were stale or reduced to crumbs, then you know how disappointing it can be. If you're mailing homemade cookies, cake, or other treats across the country, do it right! Chow tells you how to package and ship goodies, but first, make sure you've selected the right cookies.

I don't know about you guys, but I want to see this turned into a regular strip. Best of all, iI think everyone can relate to wanting to exterminate Mondays.

A new baby elephant was born Friday at the Oregon Zoo. The calf, a female, is doing fine so far. But animal rights activists discovered that although the mother belongs to the zoo, the actual owner of the yet-unnamed baby is the private elephant ranch Have Trunk Will Travel. That discovery sparked such an outcry that the zoo felt compelled to call a press conference.
The agreement came about because Have Trunk Will Travel owns the baby's father, Tusko, which was loaned to the zoo for its breeding program. The show may never claim her, but activists don't want to take any chances. Read more about the complicated deal at The Daily Beast. Link

In 1960, British architect Geoffrey Alan Jellicoe proposed the city of the future for suburban London. Motopia was to be a residential town with all roadways elevated to the tops of the buildings. The ground was to be reserved for pedestrians -with moving sidewalks. He even had plans to insulate the overhead roadways to stifle traffic noise!
The biggest draw of the plan was that people never had to worry about being hit by a car. However, we all know that some drivers don't stay on the roadway, and being squashed by a falling car is even more terrifying than being hit by one. Motopia was never built, but you can read more about what could have been at Paleofuture. Link

One can assume these quotes must really have a deep meaning, as least for the one person who decided to keep each one forever. The tat shown is from Catcher in the Rye. I hope she recalls the meaning behind it long enough to explain it to her grandchildren. See more literary quotes as tattoos at Flavorwire. Link

When you tell the bakery what you want on the cake, there's always the possibility that they will jot down every word you say. It's always best to write it down yourself, which is difficult over the phone, or even by text. Cake Wrecks has nine such literal cakes in the latest collection. Yes, these are just the latest submissions, because this sort of thing happens all the time. Link

Like everything else in the Apollo 11 program, the construction, transportation and raising of the American flag on the moon was carefully thought out and planned. In 1992, Anne M. Platoff presented a paper to the annual conference of the American Vexillological Association on the topic. She covered in detail how NASA engineers ensured that the flag planting went smoothly:

Cookie Monster got tired of waiting for cookies to mysteriously appear on his table, so he hit the nearest grocery store and scored enough to tide him over for a few hours.
Chips Ahoy wouldn't have been my first choice but Cookie was probably going for quantity and not quality...

Dr. Peter Terren of Bunbury, Australia, went all out for Christmas a couple of years ago with a Christmas bike with the "world's most powerful bicycle lights."
Not exactly what Santa needs to stealthily sneak into your home on Christmas Eve, but it will for sure spread Christmas cheer -and wake the neighbors! See more pictures at Tesla Down Under. Link-Thanks, Peter!

This is going to be FUN for Pinterest members (established and new)! -- Something we tried before with some success, so thought another was in order, only with a Holiday slant. So here's how it works:
1) Put together a wishlist board of items from the Neatoshop - stuff you really want, badly (minimum 5 items, but no max)
2) Be as creative as possible when coming up with a name for your board, or a theme for your wishlist - just try to tie it back to the Holiday season in some way shape or form.
3) Add the hashtag #NeatoPinToWinHOLIDAYS to each and every item you pin to that board
5) Close your eyes and wish really hard for something on your wishlist! The Neatorama editors will get together a week from today and pick a few items from a few boards and put them in the mail to you. Bonus points for funny or otherwise well-thought-out themes and creative board titles that make us smile.
Here's a sample board we put together, just in case you're new to Pinterest and have no idea what we're talking about. Note that the Elmo backpack is pinned correctly, with #NeatoPinToWin, while the zombie foot dog toy is not.
Oh, and in case you missed it, here are the winners from the last Pin To Win contest.

Allen, who goes by the Flickr name Roadsidepictures, has quite a collection of photographs of vintage product packaging from most of the 20th century. Looking through these will surprise you (with items before your time) and bring back memories (with items you recall vividly). Surely I'm not the only one who remembers back when Tang came in metal cans! Link -via Metafilter
