    i have one of those, always done the job, though it was really uncomfortable to write with it for extended time periods, so i ended up just using normal pens :)

    and ive used it underwater, it worked, albeit i still prefer using a pencil & slate :)

    I do love the whole 'NASA spent x amount designing a pen that their astronauts could use in space. Meanwhile, the Russians spent about 2p giving their astronauts pencils'

    I was given one for free when I complained to my bank about their service; POS seems to sum both the bank and the pen up well.

    If it doesn't have women that strip when you tilt it, then it isn't a man's pen.
