As the old saying goes, “The pen is mightier than the sword!”. There are other sayings like this, such as: “The pencil isn’t mightier than the atom bomb!”, “The pen won’t fend off a stampeding herd of cows!”, “Pens and pencils won’t make a nutritious soup!”, and “I really have no idea what is mightier than cheese.”
These witty aphorisms are interesting to behold, but terrifying to comprehend. It begs the questions, when it comes to that moment when you have to right (or left) something: what do you use? The answer is sometimes easier to not think of than to think of.
Pens & Pencils
This brings us to today’s topic. Pens. Pencils. Pens and pencils. What would you use to pick your nose with? Normally we’d go with an index finger, but if this isn’t your thing then you should probably use a pen. This dilemma, however, is, though, only, however, one facet in the entire Pens VS Pencils debate, though. Indeed, when it comes to righting stuff down it’s always so tough to choose: the one with the lead, or the one with the ink stuff.
Or you could just use a computer, like we are right now. In fact, come to think of it, we rarely use a pen or pencil anymore. Back in our day, during exams, we had to sit there with a pen and scrawl out a massive great essay, with RSI a constant threat lurking over our shoulders like some malodorous donkey. Kids these days probably don’t even know what pens and pencils are. Morons!
Regardless, this is all pointless conjecture as the keyboard is not mightier than the atom bomb. Although you could probably set an atom bomb off with a keyboard, but then again you could press the appropriate keyboard detonation key with a pen or pencil thusly rendering today’s blog post superfluous. Oh well, we hope you learned something. Have a great week, y’all!
