Before I go, though, I wanted to kick off a little contest for some geeky pens. I have several lovely Space Magnetometer Laboratory pens left over from my last outreach jaunt, and I thought perhaps some of you might want one. They have compasses built into their pocket clips. Anyway, if you would like an Awesome Compass Pen, please use this poll to explain why you are geeky enough to need a Compass Pen and I will mail you one. You have 255 characters. Go!
Dear Mad Scientess Nanila, I urgently require one of those compass pens, and this is why.
