I bought the magnetic geek poetry kit and I have to tell you, I'm very disappointed. It is lousy.

First, it's not very geeky. At all. It has NO OS related terms (unix, linux etc) and only one programming related term (perl) but that's it. Oh wait, we have "bridge". Wowee!

Second, it doesn't integrate with my existing (original) magnetic poetry kit because the words are large, much larger than the originals and because it has so few words (not a good value, see #3), there's not much to be done with it. Iow, don't do like I did and have the expectation that you can beef up your existing kit by throwing in some geekness. It ain't happening. I'd gauge the font size to be about 12. The original is maybe 6 pt. font so it doesn't blend, kwim?

Third, it's not a good value. Hardly any words as compared to the original magnetic poetry kit. Maybe one third as many. Seriously.

I'm not a complainer but I'm very disappointed with this purchase. It's what you'd expect someone like Scott Adams to do [juxtaposition of geek cartoonist but zero actual web culture knowledge, his site is painful; he calls each blog entry "a blog".] It's enough to make any sane person shiver all over.

I'm left with the impression that this kit was just phoned in, no thought put in to it at all. My mom who is 80 and had never sent an email in her life could have done a better job.

I bought these magnets to stick to a metal cabinet at the technology help desk I managed in college. It was a hit with the student workers.

Brought this to work and put on the metal filling cabinet in my cubicle to bring a bit of fun into the work world. Cannot tell you how many visitors I get a day just wanting to make another little saying and they are always hilarious! It's a ton of fun at work! Actually have this one and mixed it in with the "Movie Quotes" collection.
A few current quotes that made it to "the board": "Hal bit the droid three times on the wrong week and got napalmed off of the world", "I'll be back to byte your sexy access", "Frankly, my dear the force is not with you so stick to sniffing glue", and so much more.
Everyone needs a little more fun in their life! Get it! :)

I wish the word Robot was included (a bit surprised that it wasn't), other than that it's lots of fun!

This packet of magnets has fun words that encourage fun sentence writing! We bought it to use to help our kids make sentences for fun with the hope that it would help when back in school. This is a fun pack of words that has made us laugh a lot!

Some of the words in here were absurd. Nachos? I don't consider that "geeky", but whatever. There were a handful of really good words, but I feel like switching some of the others up for more actual geeky words would be great.

I purchased this for my Mom for Christmas and she loved it. Now I can't walk by the fridge without the whole family leaving strange and hilarious messages. I love it too and would recommend it to anyone.

We have thoroughly enjoyed putting these on our refrigerator. I think some punctuation would be nice too but you don't get that with these kits.
