I’m an idiot

This is your common Sharpie. How many years have I been using them? I lost count, but it’s a long time.


I’ve used them regularly, but often bemoaned the fact that the tip is too fat, especially after it’s been used a lot.



Until today, I didn’t know that Sharpie had already answered that complaint.


Am I the only person in the world who didn’t know there is a fat end and a skinny end to a Sharpie? How long have they been like this?

    Several years I think – they used to also have a skinny only version if my memory is correct.- most of the time I use the “fat” end – but I usually have a couple of them around so if one is a bit mashed I can change to another one

    For regular writing I usually use a 1.4mm gel pen or a 0.7mm mechanical pencil

    You’re the Word Press expert, Mike. Why the hell did they change their template again??

    If you are asking about why the Blue Death Editor – I don’t really know – someone said it was for those with limited attention spans that use tablets – use the classic editor and dashboard for most everything I do – see the link below for your site – I really could not handle the Blue Death – some other things have changed also – they say “progress” – one of the stats things has some extra stuff in it – but I have trouble finding it each time

    I hate to admit but I was sure that the Canadian Sharpie had only one end. Marian just checked and damn, it has a fine point as well. Thanks for the tip.
