New Science Blog

Hi, world. I have just created a new science blog called Science Happenings, online at Feel free to visit me there, and read about cool and unusual science information that you might not read about elsewhere.

Calculation of Times

This fountain pen is gorgeous. It is made by Pelikan, and is called "Calculation of Times." Wow: what a great name. Also, the nib comes in a broad size, which suits me fine. I love the design both on the barrel and on the nib, and the theme -- time -- is inherently interesting to me. Does anyone have one I could try?

Sailor 1911

Ooo: I would love to try out this Sailor 1911 (or Professional Gear, or whatever this pen is called). I like wide nibs that let out a large amount of ink, and I bet this pen would be perfect.

Graduate School

I am now in the middle of applying to graduate schools. Everything is going well, but I hope to be done soon.
