Scientists in Japan recently made the world's smallest ramen bowl, with a diameter of only 1/25,000 of an inch. Which, in scientific terminology, makes it invisible except to superheros that got shafted in the cool powers department (unless they can also see through walls, in which case boobs, sweet). The bowl was carved entirely out of nanotubes and was entered in a recent microphotography contest. Now as someone who just recently finished a project on nanotubes and nanotechnology, I know all about these things. Some interesting facts I uncovered during my research: They're made of carbon. They're mad small. Like super-duper small. They put my junk to shame. I hate nanotubes. Nanotubes are stupid.

Thanks to Hunter, who holds the competitive eating world record for nano-ramen: five quadtrillion megazillion boobillion bowls
Also thanks to Matt, who's been training hard and might take the title back this year
This is the world's smallest snowman (at 0.01mm), not including the one I just made to beat it. Mine is a tenth the size and has more detail including a real carrot nose. Pfft, science -- science ain't got shit on magic! Back me up, Frosty.

This is a 3.5-micron Pac-Man. How big is a micron? At least twice as long as yourcron! *zing!*

This is the world's smallest scale model of the USS Enterprise. It's tiny. Like, smaller than your penis tiny. Invisible to the naked eye. Or, let's be honest, even the clothed eyes. You poor bastard.
