Where can I find the book?

Is it only available online?

Can I ask you something? These sunglasses: they're really nice. Are they like government issue, or do you guys all go to the same store together?

use a deodorant case, stuff the top with felt, fill with ink/paint, seal with wax. jacked that idea off a site i can't remember.

1) Buy a pilot marker, and gut that motha.

2) Take out the tip, filter, and empty the ink.

3) Fill the empty marker body with an ink of your choice: Krink, Pilot, Marsh, etc.

4) Take a chalk board eraser, rip a strip off and fold it into the pilot marker.

5) Wrap electrical tape around the nib and the marker body.

6) Tag your teacher in the face.

for the deodorant one, id use a sock instead of felt. its way easier.

also, for stealth shit, empty a chapstick container, melt some wax on the bottom to seal it, fill with marsh gravy, put a felt tip form a balckboard eraser in, or any fabric that ink can move thorugh. use once and chuck.

flawless.

Pretty much.

I use the Kiwi stuff that comes in a white bottle, it has a better shape compared to the new Kiwi shoe polish applicators.

Just empty out the stuff inside, rinse it out, fill it with Krink or your own homemade ink, and leave some drippy tags!

Some people like to remove the plastic piece that connects the nib to the container. I've noticed you can get drippier tags if you do that.

no, because caps off household products like starch have female caps, not male caps... they wont work with paint
