NOT useless.... MAYBE the pen spinners hypnotized the enemy during wars to distract them while the ground forces slaughtered or captured the enemy's forces. MABYE it was as honored a position as kamikaze pilot because MAYBE all of the enemy didn't think it looked all that cool.
It took a second viewing for me, but I did find myself mesmerized....
