It’s like nowadays how many people actually use a pencil. I used one two year ago to install recessed lighting above my fire place. Using tape to mark walls works very well as well.
I have a big carpentry shop. I don't use it very often, and when I do it's mostly for sex toys. But I have the shop.
Whoops wrong thread. Lol
@Anpu23 lmao! This cracked me up so much.I was like, "Hmmmm... uh, what's that?"
@EmmaMary Guess What? @Alwayreckles93 is winning! Congratulations on using a pencil three years ago. Two years for me.
@static_in_the_attic There's always a winner and sadly always a loser. 😂
@EmmaMary When it comes to some things sometimes we learn more by losing than winning. In this case I have no eye deer.
Erasable pens are good until they go in the wash & erasable they are not. My washer & dryer love those things.
As a teacher pencils would come in handy for both the students & the teachers.
Yes sir, it does.And thank you sir for the MHO.

At least you made an attempt & I rather try than to not try at all.
Yeah agree. I actually really want to be good at drawing but I tend to get bored quickly when I'm not good at something :')
Like every journey you have to start somewhere.
A carpenter always is prepared, measure twice, mark & cut once.
I end up measuring and marking more than twice. Hence the pencil. In a pandemic, getting the cut right the first time is quite important!
It’s always good to challenge things & to solve things in different ways as well.
Always comes in handy especially for wood work.
NowI have a big carpentry shop. I don't use it very often, and when I do it's mostly for sex toys. But I have the shop.
Absolutely, measure twice & cut once as well.
What do you mean. I cut the board 3 times & it's still to short.
I’ve been there & have done that. It sucks!
I had the same idea. And often the same problem. Like a friend would say, "time for the quarter inch putty!"
I mostly use pens & I use a lot of them because those jokers end up in the wash.
Hopefully the ink doesn't spill all over your clothes then
I love cutting projects.
Was it a small page? Hahaha.
Great job & hope your designs worked out good.
Drawing seems to be a popular answer & guess we have a lot of artists amongst us.
All the pencil users are putting me to shame. Were you writing a love note?
I was studying dude. I used it to draw and mark
I think that is awesome & most of all never stop drawing. Feel free to draw me a picture.
Haha thanks. I don't do much well so I wouldn't put your eyes through that torture 😂
If you want to talk about torture you should see me draw. I’m still drawing those stick people.
Haha so do I! Why I draw like dragons or dinosaurs. No one can say it's wrong 😂
I could picture you having your artwork on display & a person walks up & says what a nice dinosaur & you say thank you. Another person walks up & says that dragon rocks & you say thanks. The third person walks up with a puzzled look on their face & they ask if that is a goldfish & you say yep.
In my office I have pens, pencils & markers & the last time I used a pencil was probably two years ago.
@static_in_the_attic Good heavens! We have one attached to our hanging calendar for making quick notes, hence the reason for using it this morning.
I know & I’m sure the pencil companies hate me & some went out of business because of me. I love pens until they go in the wash.
@static_in_the_attic Just how do you manage to sleep at night with this on your conscience? lol
You know what maybe I’ll go out & buy a box of pencils so I can sleep at night. Pencils are going to be haunting me in my dreams. Bring on the pencil sharpeners!
@static_in_the_attic And not forgetting an eraser (rubber) for removing any mistakes you might make. lol
Who needs an eraser when you have white out or spray paint. Ok I’ll buy an eraser too.
@static_in_the_attic With all this being said, I now wonder just how many "hundreds" of pencils my husband being an architect must get through.
Your husband probably uses more pencils in a month than I’ll use in a lifetime. Thank him by the way for keeping the pencil companies in business.
@static_in_the_attic You don't actually work for a pencil company, do you? lol
No I don’t work for a pencil company & if I did I think I would go NORMAL. On the other hand could you imagine working in the quality control department, talk about interesting. I could see it now. I’m on a date & the girl asks what I do. I sharpen pencils!
@static_in_the_attic What a truly wonderful thought, it would certainly be a huge ice breaker in starting a conversation! lol
Where do pencils go on vacation?
I don’t feel bad anymore. Two years for me four for you.
Always the best. Try a word here & if it doesn’t work try it again.
Two years ago for me & the pencils in my office are collecting dust.
Some people would say they taste good too.
That only means it has been a long time! Hahaha.
A very long time. After the second or third grade, I only ever used a pencil for math. I haven't done a whole lot of math at all since I graduated from high school 😂
Let me guess? You were cutting wood & made a few marks?
Nope, but close, marking spots for drilling holes in the wall.
Same here & the last time I used a pencil was to mark holes for recessed lightning.
Boom! Two years ago.
2 years... God damn man
That was one thing I was never really good at & when it comes to drawing I’m still trying to master stick figures.
Was it a Number 2 pencil?
That was one thing I never understood. If a Number 2 pencil is the number 1 selling pencil in the world why is it still number 2.
Two years ago for me.
I have to start using a pencil more, three days ago? Try two years ago.
On the job or at home?
Safety first when using pencils & if you poke & eye out at least you are in the right place. When you wrote (i dr) I said to myself what the hell is that some kind of LOL, LMFAO IMAO shit than I got it.
