It Came From the Internet

Ok here's a segment I like to call, "It Came From the Internet!"

How's this for pointless? Battery Operated Pencil Eraser

So if you are really lazy--- and I mean REALLY lazy---so lazy that you absolutely just cannot muster the strength to move your hand and/or wrist back and forth a few times, then this is the item for you.

You know, even if you were erasing, say, an entire 8 1/2" X 11" piece of paper's worth of your errant graphite markings, this item STILL would be pointless. Look how small the actual eraser part is! The product's description claims that this is "easy on your wrists." No, no, no. A thousand times, no. Holding that plastic casing (which has been made fairly heavy because of the 2 AAA batteries inside it) in position while the thing is vibrating is actually "hard on your wrists." If they want to make a claim that this is "easy on your wrists," then I better see a link to the independent ergonomic testing firm's results.

Look, if you find yourself in need of a damn fine eraser, then do yourself a favor and get Sanford's Magic Rub.
