Whatever helps you sleep at night.

Sure, they’re “scientific.” Whatever.

Look, you don’t have to impress us. You can use whatever geeky buzzwords you want about this 2-Pack of Buckyballs 216-Piece Rare Earth Magnetic Sets: you can talk about how they’re neat for creating intricate constructions, exploring the facets of magnetism, or just absent-mindedly sculpting.

But we all know that really what these things boil down to is another way for you to goof off at your desk. And that’s fine, really. Just own it. It’s less embarrassing than when you get all flustered and start stammering about how “interesting” they are.
