That's nothing, I've been doing that with my marker on the screen for ages. Oh, hey, wait. This erases! Oh, I take it back. This is cool.

My ability with the GE marker is equal to the peak of my ability with Crayolas. They need to add more colors. Where's burnt-sienna?

GE: lightbulbs, NBC and this marker thingy on the 'net.

Jonah, you will be rewarded in the afterlife for converting the rest of us flash doodlers.

Frank Grimes, Crayola is in the midst of a nefarious campaign to get rid of Burnt Sienna.

Now, if they can only find a way to port that delicious dry-erase maker smell...

Burnt Sienna rocks, I remember using it to color in the cloud of dust behind the General Lee in my coloring books. It was introduced in 1903 and is the 44th most popular Crayola color, right behind Silver, but ahead of Atomic Tangerine.

For those who don't want to register to see jodic's link, four of the following colors will be retired to make room for new colors: Burnt Sienna, Blizzard Blue, Mulberry, Teal Blue and Magic Mint .

If anyone want to save 15% in the Crayola store, use these codes: NEWMEMJAN or BB3THANKU.

Well, time to go eat some paste.

What's with the lameass crayon color names? Magic Mint? Electric Lime? Aren't just "Mint" and "Lime" descriptive enough? I'm sitting here with my 1980 Crayola 48-crayon pack that I've had my whole life and there is no Electric Lime. Instead, there is Green-Yellow. I could handle coloring with crayons that had uninspired names, why can't today's kids?

Green-Yellow

I could never tell the difference between that and Yellow-Green.
