    Procrastination

    I was supposed to be working this morning but finding it hard to focus.

    To illustrate the extent to which I procrastinated, see the review I wrote of a Bic biro

    A very interesting review. However, please could you update it when the ink eventually runs out. I'd like to know the estimated lifetime of the pen before I commit my 14p.

    I have not actually used this tank but I must congratulate the makers on choosing to name a tank after an African-American slang word for a curvaceous woman's buttocks. Surely, just the name alone will cause terrorists to avert their eyes and flee."

    Haha, I was looking through **** today and saw a story titled "Very good if you need to write on paper - A pen review". So I started reading it and after a bit, thought to myself that I've seen this somewhere else.

    Searched for this thread and yep, was the same review you wrote ages ago.

    Your review got 2,500 *****. Well done.



    Forgot **** (dee eye gee gee) was blocked on here.

    you will go down in the halls of web 2.0 history as "mr. pen writer-abouter guy" and then they'll make a bud light radio commercial out of you where the guy screams out weird things every few seconds to break the announcer's voice

    The Bic Crystal pen, incidentally, has also been a weapon of choice of bicycle thieves when targeting bicycles locked up using older models of Kryptonite D-locks. The barrel fits perfectly into the circular lock and pushes the pins in. With a little twisting (careful not to break the pen), it is exceedingly easy to open the lock.

    I discovered this is not limited to Kryptonite locks. I tried it on an old Squire bike lock I have and after some twisting (and one sacrificed Bic pen) I got it open.

    Fortunately I have my trusty Abus Granit X-54 lock as my main security measure against the scum of Oxford.
