Armed Notebooks – Is it a guy thing?


These spiral bound notebooks from MollaSpace feature 3D covers made of PVC, which are shaped like a grenade, revolver or knife. There’s a small ring that you can use to attach items to the notebook – not sure why you would want to do this, but it’s there if you want to. The notebooks are currently on back order, but are priced at $20 each. Is it just me, or are they a guy thing? Any women out there that would buy one?

    While I think that the idea of a notebook with a molded PVC cover is kind of neat, I honestly don’t get the draw of any of these.

    I am sure that artsy people in skinny jeans will buy these and write poetry in them, self-satisfied in the rich irony that they have created.

    Me, I’ll spend my $20 on something else.

    and I can see problems with the outline of one of these showing though someone’s backpack or bag as they go though security at school or the airport.

    I think I could see that revolver one as a strong statement when in the hands of a girl/woman – that would be neat I think 🙂 (I’m a guy)

    Just another example of business capitalizing on the American obsession with violence.

    That would drive me nuts not being able to fold the cover back and write in a notebook. I mean, you CAN fold it back, but that bulge would really be annoying. Not to mention that $20 for a notebook is pretty steep.

    It might be cheaper, not to mention more realistic, to superglue a real knife to the cover of an ordinary notebook. Or your laptop 🙂

    Violence-obsessed Americanism at it’s worst.

    Education at its best? Grammar police citation:
    Possessive forms of pronouns require no apostrophe.

    Grammar police? Seriously?
    Would be best to keep on topic.
