The Periodic Table Printed on a Human Hair...! (video)

We've had some great stories of some really tiny things in the past (insert penis joke here), but this one may be the tiniest....
It is the Periodic Table printed on a single strand of human hair (insert pubic hair joke here).  Check out the video of it below: 

Created by the nerds -- excuse me, experts -- at the University of Nottingham's Nanotechnology and Nanoscience Centre, the hair was etched using focused ion beams. How tiny is it? So tiny that it could be copied onto a post-it note well over a million times with room to spare.
