Mechanical or Regular Pencils?

By: Andy Chen

Students have long fought over which writing utensil is best: mechanical pencils or regular wooden pencils.
Those who stick to traditional wooden pencils benefit from reduced costs and easy accessibility, as they’re able to buy in bulk. Wooden pencils users also don’t have to fumble with refilling lead — although they do have to sharpen their pencils occasionally.

While mechanical pencils definitely cost more on average than wooden pencils, mechanical pencil users believe the benefits outweigh the costs; in fact, many mechanical pencil users snob at wooden pencil users, similar to how iPhone users act toward Android users. Mechanical pencils are safer and last longer than normal pencils, since lead can be replenished in a mechanical pencil, whereas wooden pencils whittle away little by little. Additionally, they remain the same length for the entirety of their lifetime, allowing students using mechanical pencils to gain a consistent grip, promoting good writing habits.
However, students who use mechanical pencils should keep standardized testing in mind — think Scantrons on SAT, AP and ACT multiple choice tests. For these tests, wooden pencils are standard, so students should always bubble using an HB2 wooden pencil; better safe than sorry.
At the very least, whether you’re a mechanical or wooden pencil person, there’s at least one thing you can agree on: at least you’re not a pen person.

  1. I operate a vape store directory site and we have had a listing from a vape store in the USA that likewise offers for sale CBD goods. A Month later on, PayPal has contacted use to claim that our account has been limited and have requested us to get rid of PayPal as a payment method from our vape store website directory. We do not sell CBD goods like CBD oil. We solely provide internet marketing services to CBD firms. I have taken a look at Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Top Health Merchant and if you take a good look, you will see that they supply a relatively considerable stable of CBD goods, specifically CBD oil and they also happen to take PayPal as a settlement solution. It emerges that PayPal is administering twos sets of rules to many different companies. Due to this limitation, I can no longer take PayPal on my CBD-related online site. This has limited my payment possibilities and right now, I am intensely contingent on Cryptocurrency payments and straightforward bank transfers. I have talked with a barrister from a Magic Circle law firm in The city of london and they said that what PayPal is doing is totally against the law and inequitable as it should be applying an uniform standard to all firms. I am yet to talk with yet another legal representative from a US law firm in The city of london to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the United States. For the time being, I would be highly appreciative if anybody here at targetdomain could offer me with alternative payment processors/merchants that work with CBD firms.
