Wait wait wait wait wait...So when the Russians went to space, for a LONG time they used pencils. Graphite shavings, teeny tiny graphite dust, and the occasional broken tip lead to all sorts of damage on the interior of those vessels. How is THAT not the biggest mistake ever made with a pencil!?

the biggest problem with pencils when I was a kid in the 70's was they were painted with lead paint.

I’m an American born in 1992 who grew up in California and we had pencils that said “Don’t let friends do drugs” which became “Let friends do drugs” and then “Friends do drugs” and then “Do drugs” and then “Drugs.”

These pencils showed up in my tiny public school in Wyoming. I remember it clear as day. I was in second grade and it took all of 15 minutes for the more devious of my classmates to end up at the pencil sharpener. 😄

I suspect that there are in fact some far more terrible and/or larger mistakes that have been made with a pencil... they just aren’t known...

I had a friend in highschool who they had to operate a pencil out of his bottom, so that would probably be my guess.

Stephen Fry of all people should know that the biggest mistake with pencils is to stick one up each nostril and mutter "Wibble-wibble." Never works...

As an Aussie, I can say without argument that Stephen Fry's Australian accent impression is the most accurate you'll ever hear in your life. Hell, it's more Aussie sounding than mine!

Schnoz Literally no more than 5 years ago my school changed their pencils from lead to graphite because of a law change. I suppose it could depend upon where your from but I’m from England and that’s also where the shows based from.

Though it's funny, I seriously doubt "Too cool to do drugs" is the biggest mistake anyone's ever made with a pencil. If anyone's ever shoved one too far up their nose while bored in maths class, and killed themselves, I'd count even that as a bigger mistake (well, more grave, albeit on a smaller scale). Also, "Too Cool to do Drugs" seems pretty ambiguous in the first place. If it had been (as Sandi said) "Don't Do Drugs" -> "Do Drugs", that would've been a pretty big oversight, but I'd say that using the phrase "Too Cool to do Drugs" is a mistake to begin with. It /could/ be interpreted as "I'm too cool to do drugs!", but "too" could just as easily be interpreted as /enhancing/ "cool", i.e. "It's too cool to do drugs!"

Expected this to be about Russian cosmonauts using graphite in pure oxygen environments, but was pleasantly surprised! (It was a fire hazard and led to the development of modern ink pens stateside)

The German GEZ which collects TV license fees is pretty nasty. They send bills to every household even if you do not own a TV.
Herbert Erdferkel
Herbert Erdferkel Vor 28 Tage
Nothing nasty about it, its just reasonable to assume everyone has a receiver of some kind falling under the licencing rules and then let the few people living the exception notify them about the opposite. Absolutely no big deal there, just whiny dumb masses not understanding the whole concept and failing to use the implemented tools. Take it as an IQ test, if you actually are exempted from the fee and fail to get yourself out of the fee then you a too dumb and probably should apply for a caretaker.
