Okay, I'm patriotic and all, and maybe on 9/11, should save this one, but what the heck... some truth to it, and funny!



When NASA first started sending up astronauts, they quickly discovered that ballpoint pens would not work in zero gravity. To combat the problem, NASA scientists spent a decade and $12 billion to develop a pen that writes in zero gravity, upside down, underwater, on almost any surface including glass and at temperatures ranging from below freezing to 300°C.

The Russians used a pencil.
I must be gettin' old... I still think baseball is cool.
