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.
