Okay, I've been having really weird and vivid dreams lately. I was just taking a nap and had a dream about fountain pens for the first time! In my dream, I remember looking at Nathan Tardiff's blog. He was announcing that he was changing the name of Noodler's ink to N♥♥dler's. He also redesigned the beautiful Noodler's ink labels into horrible MS Paint monstrosities. I checked FPN to see the reaction and people were threatening to boycott Noodler's. I was afraid Nathan would shut down Noodler's due to all of the criticism (hah), so I sent along an email saying I loved the new changes. Anyway, it was very strange, but I'm wondering, have you guys ever dreamed about anything fountain pen related? Either a specific brand like I did, or just using pens in your dreams, or anything really! I'm curious to know.
Hi, Slightly off topic, and of no earthly use, but The Slo-Mo Guys have just released a nifty video of them squirting ink into a fish tank and filming the results at high speed. Very relaxing to watch! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gzkB574jivA Thanks, Max
I'm currently taking exams in school. I came prepared with a fully inked up Faber-Castell Ambition with Noodler's Black. I sit in the examination hall and look around. The person sitting in front of me is using a Bic Cristal with a sponge grip attachment. Someone across from me has a chunk of blue-tack stuck to his Bic as a grip. I chuckled internally. The F-C Ambition barely even has a grip, but after >2 straight hours of writing, my hand wasn't sore. This really shows how practical a fountain pen can really be. By the way, I finished a whole converter full of ink that day. I wrote so much that the ink got so dry I had to push ink into the feed with the converter.
