While we were down in Boston, we stopped at the MIT Museum and gift shop. There we found these pens and bought 2 for the middle son at $14 each. He found it fantastic! It has saved him at university, with all those stupid hand-written test essays. This pen alone will launch him into an infinitely expensive law school! (aaarg, more ad clicks please!).
When I looked it up on the internet, they're only about 3 bucks each at Canada Office Supplies, and I bought a few for Christmas. I just get the cheapest disposable one, and that is one heck of a good gel pen! I can't use normal gel pens because I want to write too slanted, and they always cough up blood on me. These pens keep the tip vertical.
So the lesson here: Stupid MIT! Great pen!
