    Excellent Read

    Petroski focuses his engineering mind on another item often taken for granted--the pencil. The depth and breadth of his exploration of the invention and perfection of the pencil leaves one incapable of encountering any writing utensil without pausing to think of its journey.

    How about we actually fight. Like istead of one person saying 'he snuck up on her and stabbed her till she died' how about we actually fight, like say 'jumped on selena aand took out a knife' and then the other person says 'kicked chris off her and withdrew her axe' and do that. Just when someone has enouggh injuries, they die. Want it that way?
