    you guys need to check out the description:

    "We understand that some people don't have the time to design their own pens, and for those people we offer our pre-designed line of pens. Whether you're looking for a long and skinny pen, a thick pen, a fountain pen that squirts ink, or even a black pen, we have just the one for you. "

    utterly amazing. :D

    I am going to order a couple custom pens. I sent them my logo. I have an obsession with pens.....mechanical pencils too.

  7. That came too early in the thread.

    It could have been way funnier if you'd kept it until at least the bottom of page two, or start of page three.

    Better luck next time.

    This reminds me of the story of the space race - so there was the problem of writing in zero-G - the Americans spent a lot of time and millions of dollars to develop a new kind of pen that would write at any angle and any way up!

    The Russians used a pencil! :D
  11. Or the millions that went into developing a pen that works underwater, and when it was finially finished they realised the limitions of paper
  12. File this with Bonsaikitten and Manbeef. :smug:

    Actually, we used pencils too for a while. The history of the space pen can be found here:

    i actually did a project in modern world history and we had to start our own islands and build our own economies and then make up laws and such and put it on a big poster and the group that i was in made our island pen island. our teacher didnt notice until she graded it. it was hella funny because everyone in the class got it right away and they couldnt stop laughing.
