      I was a little disappointed in this year's April Fool's day tool (especially compared to the more wacky stuff they've come up with in the past)...  I actually have and use a tape measure much like one of these on a regular basis...  Mine is made by Fastcap and came from Woodcraft.  here's the link:

      http://www.woodcraft.com/Product/2005829/17847/FASTCAP-Story-Pole-16--Tape-Measure.aspx


      The surface is designed to be written on with pencil and the tape measure has a built in pencil sharpener which is extremely convenient.  It's by far my favourite tape measure in the shop and house, primarily for its story-stick properties...

      Yeah, except this year, it's a real product.

      Actually seems like kind of a cool idea too. IF

      You could use some kind of temp marker on it (whiteboard markers
      perhaps?) ... that could be wiped off when done.

      I could see setting up to make a bunch of X ... and just saying out the
      story-board of them on that tape, instead of a stick (like I do now), or
      remembering 3 sets of numbers (which eventually get mungled and turn
      into one wrong cut - grrr)

      Granted, you could do the same w/ a regular tape and a marker. But
      feels 'wrong' to write on your already marked tape :)
