Considering Batman and Iron Man are the only superheroes without any super powers, in theory that would mean you could become either one of them if you had enough money.  Of course that brings us to the question, would it cost more to become Batman or Iron Man?  Well, that is exactly what this infographic aims to figure out!

This infographic was created by and they sought out to figure out just how much insurance would cost for these two superheroes.  Well, they determined that Iron Man’s insurance premiums would run $200k/yr while Batman’s are only $115k/yr.  As for the list of assets that were considered in coming up with that figure, I will let you find that out for yourself on the infographic below.  As I am sure you can already tell, it is more expensive to be Iron Man but I think I would rather be Batman just because of the cooler vehicles.

Let us know your thoughts below about who you would rather be and if you think these numbers are in the right ballpark!  Would you even want to be the billion dollar hero?

A lot of times I shy away from posting infographics.  I love infographics and find them interesting and visually appealing (most of the time), I just find their length to be annoying.  I like seeing all of the information but I don’t like posting something so long that it might discourage people who only visit the front page of GGN from scrolling down far enough to see other things that I post.  However, being a the huge Doctor Who fan that I am, I figured I should share this one on the worth of the TARDIS!

This novelty real estate infographic on the TARDIS was created by the awesome folks over at Movoto.  Of course this infographic doesn’t take into account that the TARDIS is a time machine which pretty much makes it priceless, but it does take a decent stab at what it is worth from a real estate perspective.  Check it out!  Feel free to discuss your thoughts on how accurate this infographic is in the comments below!

I have posted some pretty cool Star Wars papercraft things in the past such as the papercraft X-Wing fighter made out of a Star Wars book and a rather religious looking papercraft Darth Vader, but I have never seen any papercraft creation quite this small before.  To say that I am blown away by the amount of detail that they achieved in just a half an inch would be a huge understatement.

This incredible 1/2″ papercraft Millennium Falcon was created by David Canavese of OtherLifeArt.  I have serious doubts that there is anybody out there who can do better than this when it comes to making super small papercraft so for that reason, I am going to declare David the god of papercraft.

Apparently this took him about eight hours to make although how he made something that looks that good, I haven’t the slightest clue.  I wish I had the skills and patience to make something like this!

I love wearing shirts that combine multiple geeky obsessions into one cool design.  For example, I have a shirt that combines Donkey Kong with Star Wars and another shirt that combines Super Mario with a Dalek from Doctor Who.  Well, it looks like I have found another awesome geeky mash-up shirt that I will have to add to my collection which I think you guys will love too.

The awesome folks over at TeeFury are selling this Legend of Jedi shirt for just $11 today only!  It combines the Legend of Zelda with Star Wars.

I love how this shirt turns Link into Luke Skywalker and the annoying Navi into R2-D2.  However, the best part is the text at the bottom saying the Triforce is strong with this one.  Yep, this is definitely going to be a shirt I have to have.

If you agree that this shirt design is cool, make sure you get it now before it is gone because if you wait until tomorrow, it will be too late!

As much as I enjoy a good puzzle, I have never played with a Rubik’s Cube before.  I know that seems kind of odd and perhaps even shocking to some geeks but it is true.  Its not that I wouldn’t mind giving one a shot, I am just never around one.  However, if I had a 3D printer, I would definitely make my own TARDIS Rubik’s Cube like the one below!

If you enjoy solving Rubik’s Cubes and had a love for Doctor Who, I think I have found the perfect way to combine the two!

Shapeways member lcuthbert is selling this 3D printed TARDIS Rubik’s Cube pattern for $51.26.  To make yourself one, you will not only need a 3D printer (which is fraking expensive), but you will also need a 2x2x4 Rubik’s Cube because apparently you just print off the TARDIS pieces and glue them onto the cube.  Also, you will have to print off your own decals for the windows, signs and beacon as they aren’t included.

If you are a Doctor Who fan that is lucky enough to have a 3D printer and decide to try this out, let me know how it turns out!

I always enjoy it when people express their artistic talents and geeky loves in unusual mediums.  Anybody can draw on paper or paint on canvas but what I really love is when people think outside the box and do something more unique.  Whether they create something in snow or out of LEGO bricks, I enjoy original art!  In this particular case, one guy created a beautiful Iron Man wood burning!

This amazing Iron Man wood burning was created by BTJ Pyrography.  It took him 5 1/2 hours non-stop to create this amazing Iron Man wood burning but I would definitely say it was worth every bit of effort because the result turned out quite awesome!  I wish I had the artistic skills and steady hand required to make something cool like that.

If you want to watch him make it, there is a video below the picture showing just how it was made.  Don’t worry, it won’t take you 5 1/2 hours to watch, only about 11 minutes because the video is playing at 24x.
