Have you ever looked at someone's tattoo and wondered if they'll regret getting it later down the road? If so, these creative and geeky designs might change your mind. First up, we have someone who decided to tattoo musical notes streaming out of their ear, perfect for when wearing earbuds. For those who don't know, while the rest of our body shrinks as we get older, our noses, earlobes and ear muscles keep getting bigger. That's because they're made mostly of cartilage cells, which divide more as we age. Continue reading for more.
HR Joe Photography proves that superheroes have lives outside of fighting crime (and each other). Edy Hardjo, the photographer behind the project, uses custom action figures to put these well known superheros into hilarious and sometimes compromising positions.

Microwaves come in all sizes, but one thing is for sure, radio waves penetrate the food and excite water and fat molecules pretty much evenly throughout the food. In other words, food tends to dry out, like pizza. No heat has to migrate toward the interior by conduction. There's heat everywhere all at once because the molecules are all excited together. There are limits, of course. Microwaves penetrate unevenly in thick pieces of food, and there are also "hot spots" caused by wave interference - the whole heating process is different because you are "exciting atoms" rather than "conducting heat." Place a small glass of water inside while re-heating old pizza, and it will make all the difference, or at least for the crust. Continue reading for more.

The Back to the Future trilogy didn't predict smartphones, but right now, a DeLorean iPhone case is the hottest accessory online, and for the affordable price of $50. As you can see from the images and video, it's an amazingly detailed reproduction of the iconic movie vehicle, with the phone itself housed where the car's chassis would go. There are built-in LED lights and even moveable parts that allow you to fully use your phone when it's in the case. There are a few caveats, or at least for those who prefer function over form: the wheels are locked into hover mode and you need to slide the bonnet across to use the camera, and users also need to flip up one side to reach the volume buttons.
