Today, I'm starting a new series of posts on Stuff That Works. This will include gadgets, devices, and some non-electronic stuff (such as today's post) that just plain work, and work well.
Today's item is the Sharpie MINI, a pocket-sized Sharpie marker that can hang on your key-chain.
I've had one of these on my key-chain for several weeks, and it's very useful to always have a Sharpie on hand.
A few of the things that qualify it as Stuff That Works:

Now why is that *So* darned useful, Andrew?
You might also like the Sharpie Micro Permanent Marker, which is just like the Sharpie Mini, only in ultra-fine tip. They work nicely on index cards (I'm a lofi / "Hipster PDA" kind of guy). I've found that both Minis and Micros make good emergency / "holdout" writing instruments: the form factor, marker ink, and keychain attachment all do their part in preventing them from "slipping away quietly through wormholes in space" to enjoy a uniquely Sharpie lifestyle.
@Sahil - It's useful because if you give me a sharpie and some duct tape, I can do just about anything. Sharpies are second only to duct tape in usefulness, and a Sharpie that's always with me is a Good Thing (tm).
@James - Thanks for the tip (no pun intended)!
