BALLOON HELICOPTER
For Helicopter Parents
Dirt-cheap fun for the kids--at home and at school. Attach the (3) 5-1/2" long plastic blades to the whistling nozzle, blow up the little balloon and watch the world's cheapest helicopter fly away. Paul says it demonstrates Newton's third law, but he says a lot things. Great for classroom demos. Paul not included.

10-YARD PLAID DUCT TAPE
Emergency Kilt Repairs!
Finally, plaid duct tape. We think this is Clan MacNeon tartan because of the digital red, yellow, blue and green pattern. You get a 10-yard roll of approx 2" wide tape.

GUITAR-SHAPED BALLPOINT PEN
Make Your Notes Sing
Compose yourself with one of these 6-1/2" ball-point pens shaped like an electric guitar. We'll pick one that resembles a Rickenfenderbird crossed with a jazz bass. With black ink and a little cap so the notes don't leak out. When they run dry you can always play air pen.

SCIENCE FACT AND TRIVIA BOOK
Useless Science You Can Use
The Useless Science Fact-O-Pedia, despite a semi-dumb name, is a quite useful trivia collection, with a focus on science instead of old Seinfeld episodes, or shortstops. Runs over 300 pages with a couple of hundred categories in alphabetical order with a handful to a dozen facts about each, from amino acids to zymurgy, which is our favorite. Perfect bio lab bathroom book. And a horse has 89 feet of intestines.
