Many people can't perfectly straighten their arms, as their bones are not straight. If you've seen a orthopedic doctor and he's taken x-rays and you're told there are no bone problems, there are likely no bone problems.

Why was the absolute temperature scale invented?

One of the problems with the Celsius and Fahrenheit scales is that they are not linear. We cannot say, for example, that a cup of water at 40 degrees C is twice as hot as one as 20 degrees, or that water at 20 degrees is twice as hot as water at 10 degrees. The absolute -- or Kelvin -- scale solves this problem, because it is linear.

What is the difference between a expensive Curling Iron to a cheap one?

Generally, hair straighteners and curlers that are more expensive are designed to reach temperatures that curl/straighten more effectively, without doing a large amount of damage to your hair. For example, a straightener such as a ghd which only reaches 178 degrees is more effective and less damaging than a Remington straightener that reaches 200+ degrees.
