Are You Nerd Enough? A Periodic Coffee Table

If your bookshelf full of Isaac Asimov and Robert Heinlein doesn’t convey enough “nerd vibe” for your apartment, perhaps you should pick up this so-amazing-I-can’t-believe-it coffee table.

I came across this one through one of my frequent forays into Gizmodo.

This coffee table not only has a periodic table of the elements engraved into the glass, but also has pieces of the elements themselves embedded into the glass as well!

For a mere $8550 US, you could be the nerdiest guy on the block.

And just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, why you can even option to have your school or corporate logo engraved into the table as well.

There is a blog published by Discover Magazine called The Loom. It is written by Carl Zimmer, who writes for the New York Times and is a columnist for Discover.

He has a section on his blog where people can send in photos of their science-related tattoos. Its pretty awesome so I thought I would share it with all of you. Below are a few of my favourites, but you can seem them all here.

(Hint: Click on the photos to see the explanation of the tattoo)
