Why didn't I have this in High School---Cheater Pen

It's a normal looking pen right? your typical ballpoint... nothing to see here right? Move along.

Except for this thin little metal tab neatly in line with the pen body. Nothing to see here right?

Except when you give it a little tug...out comes a spring loaded scroll of paper. In this case it was shortcuts from Sprint for a Blackberry, but a little pen hacking, (actually just sticking a post-it to the paper) and I have a legit cheat sheet. Click for larger views. I have a love/hate relationship with pens that do things other than just write....usually because that means that they do not write that well.

This rule holds absolutely true here. This one writes like it was run over by an 18 wheeler but the idea is cool. Please excuse all spelling and grammatical errors, I am running on Red Bulls and Espressos. Enjoy your day.

Cool, a spy pen! :) Any info on the name of the pen or its maker?

This pen is really cool. Although, with all the new technology these days a cheater pen is almost not necessary as 'cheater cell phones' have now made it even easier to cheat. If your interested in another cool pen I love the pens in the Montblanc Starwalker collection. They write so nice and smooth that it's like your cheating!

This pen is pretty awesome. With so many multifunction pens with technological features, it's cool to see a simple promotional pen without all of the outrageous designs and functions. It has a nice throwback feel to it.

This actually called a billboard pen. Many companies use this pen at trade shows to give detailed information about their products and services. Definitely one of my favorites!
