Some of the people I work for are influential to the max. What does this odd looking machine, presumably from the 50's or 60's, have to do with that? Well, this machine is called an auto pen. It uses a mold to replicate signatures and handwriting. Really important people do not have enough time to sign all the documents that need their signatures. I had never heard of such a machine before my time at my current job. I wonder how many people in the world have molds for a machine like this one...
In other work news, I can say without equivocation that after three years of adjunct teaching, tour guiding, photo taking and a whole lot of Paris bike riding, 9-5 is exhausting. I was really getting good at all that.
