Okay, this one got me in the feels. UK mom Sarah Ivermee has a son who wears a cochlear implant. While Freddie’s totally happy with his hearing devices as is, Sarah’s met other moms whose kids dislike wearing them because doing so makes them feel different from their peers. After successfully suggesting to one mom that she decorate her child’s hearing aid with nail stickers, Sarah got the idea to create a company that makes decorating kits for hearing devices called Lugs.

The kits come for both Cochlear implants and hearing aids, and they feature Star Wars, Marvel and Disney characters, plus all kinds of other fun stuff.

Kerry Callen is the cartoonist behind Halo and Sprocket. He also works at Hallmark adapting cartoons into greeting cards. This image is more along those lines, and it’s something he did because it made his wife laugh. That’s good enough reason for us!

These guys are dedicated. Not to their job it seems, but to seeing a nerdy project through to completion regardless of how pointless it is.

The walls of most offices are pretty drab and not at all fun to stare at for eight hours every day. So, Redditor bruck7 solved the problem by carefully mapping out pictures of superheroes that he and his coworkers then constructed out of Post-it notes. The final product looks awesome, but it’s not going to last.

He says that most of them are sticking pretty well, although a few have been replaced. He’s not making any attempt to keep it there permanently since the office is moving and in the next six months he’ll have a whole new set of walls to decorate.

Honestly, I wouldn’t want to mess with Link, but a robot Link? That bucket of bolts looks totally brutal.

Spidey

Redditor logic-pending decided to make a very special present for her boyfriend who is a huge Spider-Man fan. Over the course of 2 months and about 100 hours she drew this beautiful picture of Spidey (yes, this is a drawing). She chose to use Andrew Garfield from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and it looks so good, you’d swear it was from the film.

Superheroes manage to survive all sorts of nasty business, but how long can they expect to live? This odd infographic created by Design by Soap lays out just how long some of these superheroes (and Rick Grimes) can expect to live taking into account factors like drinking, smoking, regenerative powers and plain old guesswork. Things are looking good for Silver Surfer but not so much for Rorschach.

See the full infographic after the break (and feel free to pick it apart).

gnome

All manner of evil lurks in the average garden which is why you need something more than an ordinary garden gnome to keep watch. Bat Gnome, Super Gnome, and Captain Gnomerica are on the job to keep your yard safe!

Each 9″ tall gnome is made of polyresin and hand-painted to look like either Batman, Superman, or Captain America. You can use them in your garden, or bring them inside where they’d look great standing guard on your mantle.
