Liquid Pencil


"Do not sharpen."

Real No. 2 lead that flows instead of breaks.

Liquid graphite inside.

The point stays sharp forever.

$2.99 for three at Office Depot.

Why it's not yet up on their website, when they're getting ink — oops, I meant lead — in the back–to–school section of the newspaper is beyond moi.

Papermate has been selling this for awhile. I love the concept, but execution is poor. Maybe this brand works better?

This is about the fourth product I've seen lately where the PR people get all the information out, it gets press, the press tells you to go to the Web site for more info and it's not there. It makes absolutely no sense to me - as a consumer or a PR person.

Due to the innate feebleness of my brain, I cannot remember all examples (but you had one more here earlier). Here's mine for this week. I read about this cool Lego clock in Family Fun magazine: http://everythingandnothing.typepad.com/mississippi/2005/08/time_to_rise_an.html.

I want to buy one. I go to Lego.com as they instruct me and it's not there. I do a google search. No luck. Not even eBay had it.

Go figure. Why do you go out of your way to get your product in a magazine and then have no way for an interested person to buy it? They didn't say Coming for Christmas or Look for it This Fall. They said go to Lego.com now and get it.
