Spotted at a home furnishings type store in Shinjuku. My buddy Kang has a similar product with more colorful packaging. At the same store I bought some handsome, small notebooks. I’ve been using them to take notes while reading. Often I think back to books I read a long time ago, and I lament that I don’t remember most of the fascinating stuff they contained. Now when I run into one of those sentences that makes me drop the book to my side and stare at the wall for a few minutes, I can write it down and keep it. Galaxies may be quantum jitters smeared across the sky during [cosmic inflation](http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0375727205/)? A huge portion of my DNA is actually made of viruses who [spliced themselves in](http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000G740PI)? This stuff is astounding, and now I won’t lose it.
