I've seen fun you people wouldn't believe.
Tiki torches on fire off the summit of Kilauea.
I watched disco balls glitter in the dark near the Brandenburg Gate.
All those moments will be lost in time, like crowds in rain.

Time to sleep.


I like the idea of having both graphics, one on each side, and it seems like there might be a decent amount of other goons that like that idea too. Would it be prudent to add a "both" option for the poll or would it be too late at this point?

Site says vector graphics, and since you're likely starting from scratch might as well get it right the first time.

EDIT: Yes, it says that high-res raster (photo) graphics are okay, but 1) that's for photos and 2) see above.

I chose the grenade, but I wish there was an option for both. Grenade on one side and "Needful" on the other?

Or maybe the SA grenade with "please do the needful" wrapping around it?

They're double sided, so we can do both if necessary. I'm kinda hoping for validation in here on that.

If it doesn't cost any more to do both sides, then grenade on one side and "the needful ->" on the other sounds like the way to go.

I think I am the only one where "do the needful" angers me so much I don't even want it on a thumb drive.

I think if someone could draw up a grenade with "do the needful" wrapped around it, it would look pretty cool.

Edit: Getting one regardless of the final design.

Keep an adversary in the dark about what you're capable of, and he has to assume the worst.


I ordered 2, if we do the 100 for needful and 50 grenade could I get one of each?

If we do one on each side that's fine too

That's a shame, you can get USB 3.0 devices for around the same price (I know it's not the point, but I don't need or want a USB 2.0 key enough to justify spending the money just for the novelty factor).

Oh, the housing is brushed aluminum, the plastic thumb drive sides would be black. Right now the idea is needful on the top, grenade on the bottom, both laser etched. I should be getting proofs soon.

Anyone have any thoughts on a font for the needful side or should I just put it in comic loving sans?

That all sounds good. Helvetica would be my preference for the font but just do the needful.

I'd honestly prefer MT Extra over Comic Sans. There are tons of terrible comedy options (lookin' at you, Papyrus) but a sensible sans-serif font would probably be best.

I wouldn't care as much if it weren't that three of the four I'm ordering are intended to be Christmas gifts.

Ehhhh, I think comic sans would be a bit much. I'd say keep it plain. Make it look like a real "in case of emergency" sign.

Also I think I selected "2" instead of "1" under how many I'd order, whoops.

You're looking ESPECIALLY shadowy this evening, Sir

I'm in for one of the "Do the needful" ones, but I'm currently moving and don't have an address I can enter (as in 2 weeks I won't be able to get mail anymore)

As soon as I get my new address I'll put in an order

2 weeks might be a bit late, put in an order and just put in your email address and vague details as to where you'll be living (city/state) and i'll email you later down the road when it's time to ship.

I've put in for one, any combo of needful and grenade is good with me

I am international (UK), hope that's ok and shipping won't be too terrifyingly expensive? I would have PM'd before, but, well, I don't have PMs and SA keeps rejecting my payment methods so it looks like I'm stuck that way for the moment...

I'm in the UK too. It's a light as hell item, I can't imagine it would cost a huge amount to stick in a small jiffy bag.
