    I don't remember David quoting the Bible. He was a Buddhist or former one if I remember.

    I am sorry for his/Monsoon's experience, but the offending member is a well-known troll and may be or likely the result of a duel member profile.

    Anyway, I am glad we are back onto pencils as I am enjoying these Rocket Autopoints much.
    This from the King of Trolls!!!

    As for Monsoon / EoC / David Jackson: The current frenzy of Monsoon posts have every "signature" characteristic of EoC including a the play of the victim card and the announcement of a departure. I'd be glad to post the complete EoC checklist again if you wish. You are fooling no one And don't let Candy/Chuck fool you. He's dumb but not THAT dumb. He knows who you are too and is just egging you on.

    David, speaking for myself, I don't really care what you fancy as your name of the day......just go and don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out.
    I just keep hoping that some day you will actually do as you threaten and leave, for good. But, we all know....... you won't.

    Somebody here asked why I wrote about non-pencil things that were happening here and I plum forgot to address that properly. No doubt other states are nice, interesting places to visit, nice people, boring hats of course, but when someone comes at you who clearly has a big hole in his screen door..... well, I can get like a dog with a bone sometimes thats all. If it was just general insulting behavior I might've let it be but it werent.

    I'm going to need Cliff's Notes on this.

    Do we like mechanical pencils or only like modern options. And, have we waived off wood case pencils?

    A: No you didn't; no, you came here for an argument.
    M: An argument isn't just contradiction.
    A: It can be.
    M: No it can't. An argument is a connected series of statements intended to establish a proposition.
    A: No it isn't.
    M: Yes it is! It's not just contradiction.
    A: Look, if I argue with you, I must take up a contrary position.
    M: Yes, but that's not just saying 'No it isn't.'
    A: Yes it is!
    M: No it isn't!

    Yes, some. Here is a monochromatic look at some of the mechanical pencils and lead holders I have. I might have posted it here previously (?) but yeah... there you go

    I prefer the Autopoints to modern but have use the Pentel Automatic Sharp .7mm for decades. I also use Mitsubishi 9850's daily.

    Yes, No. 3 exactly (or two of them, actually, both the fat stubby one and the slimmer one next to it). Awesome fun for sketching with 6B lead.

    Thank you! I do like the fat stubby one better, and I bet it is fun to sketch with!

    I like these early Caran d'Ache mechanical pencils which were also called Fixpencil:



    a high quality mechanism combined with minimalistic design.
