In the early years of space flight, both Russians and Americans used pencils in space. Unfortunately, pencil lead is made of graphite, a highly conductive material. Snapped graphite leads and particles in zero gravity are hugely problematic, as they will get sucked into the air ventilation or electronic equipment, easily causing shorts or fires in the pure oxygen environment of a capsule.

After the fire in Apollo 1 which killed all the astronauts on board, NASA required a writing instrument that wasn’t a fire hazard. Fisher spent over a million dollars (of his own money) creating a pressurized ball point pen, which NASA bought at $2.95 each. The Russian space program also switched over from pencils shortly after.

40 years later snide morons on the internet still snigger about it, because snide morons on the internet never know what they are talking about.

^^^ THIS. THANK YOU.

this was discussed in 3 Idiots. Virus revealed to Rancho why bringing a pencil to space can be dangerous & why the space pen is needed.

wake up america

this is to educate my non-American followers. This really is how the US sees itself. (and yes, 95% of the time, Florida = WHAT?!)

In Florida the more North you go, the more “South” you get 

In Florida the central part pretends to be the south, the western part pretends to be the northeast and the south pretends to be the west I’m not even fucking kidding you 

… Please tell me you guys are kidding.  

Florida is like it’s own country I swear

Visualizing Palestine's second graphic on the Gaza attacks. Recently, the US was the only country to vote against a UN Human Rights Council investigation into Israel's invasion of Gaza. America has had 14 years to grieve and process the loss of lives on 9/11, while Palestinians in Gaza are given no respite from Israeli violence or time to process their own losses.

(Also the hilarious case of crackers crying about racism due to it)

anyone remember that Oklahoma bombing was the second largest terrorist act on US soil (first before 9/11) was home-grown? That feds were off on wild goose chases with Arab citizens, when McVeigh was caught for a traffic violation, which was literally dumb luck? why the hell would an international terrorist cell target OK? They would hit NY, DC, LA, it’s not quantum physics.
