    the zinc/cadmium oxide in the coins produce an electromagnetic field that can tap into cell phone towers, but only in Nebraska and Pakistan. However this electromagnetic field will cause rats to eat your left knee because of the frequency of the electromagnectic field (23432.783 Hertz). This will also lead to birth defects such as field hockey sticks for arms, and no genitalia and/or liver.

    Why not one of those really small pencils- doesn't need to be sharpened.

    Oops, my mistake, i meant to write really small pens, sorry. You normally buy them for keeping in a small notepad, or some use similar to this. Not that pencils are bad, this pen would just be way smaller.
