    And she sang “day-o,
    My heart is broken, I know
    Leave the pens, just go.”

    Thanks for being so generous! Are you going to SfN this year?

    • sbrebrown

      I won’t be, unfortunately

        Sadness. When I found out that you’re a neuroscientist, I was curious if I’d bump into you there. I’m working in a vocal learning lab right now, but I suspect I won’t be going to SfN after this year. My boss is moving his lab to NYC and there’s no way I can afford to live up there.

          Sorry to hear that!

        Your review was awesome. Do you thing it is worth buying?

    Just fyi: the hole at the end of the barrel is to prevent choking (same as on the Lamy Safari or Pelikan Pelikano), it’s a German regulation because these pens are mostly targeted at school-children.

    • Memory

      That never occurred to me! So it’s a Lifesaver pen? Very cool to know.

    A pen only writes
    when filled with a proper ink
    not filled with mayo.
