For the geek who has it all,

a 100,000x electron microscope with etch-a-sketch style controls that allow you to rake particles the size of a few dozen atoms into a composed reposed order.

Compete against your elf to arrange the particles into a pattern with the tightest possible tolerances, for your personal best.

Not bad at all. Extreme bonzai/topiary anyone?
I expect that those pesky nanobots will get there first.

Tell you what. If you don't have an electron microscope, I can sell you a pre-raked garden; it'll be in this little box, guaranteed.

Off on that other topic, why the #$@&* is the s invisible? The inside jokes around here are getting a bit thick. Just type the *&@# s. Or convince me not to.

(While typing this my 10 month old just took here first 15 steps across the room-- the lengths kids will go to to get attention.)
