I've been using these for years -- they meet all your criteria, the ink lasts a long time, dries quickly, doesn't readily smear...

EFF Sues to Block New Internet Sex-Offender Law 305

Bobfrankly1 writes "The EFF sued to block portions of the approved Prop 35 today.

Oh, never mind. I just saw the threat of violence at the end; I see logic was not your goal, nor indeed within your approach :)

1) As others have pointed out, not all humans are on Facebook. I'm sure the FB researchers would be hard-pressed to believe that, though.
