Quoted: Truth, Lies, and Advertising

NASA embarked on an expensive research and development program [in the 1960s]. Some time and a million dollars later (quite a lot of money at that time), they proudly presented their “astronaut pen,” which immediately went into service.

…Meanwhile, the Soviet space agency had solved its own pens-not-working-at-zero-gravity problem. They used pencils.

More often than not, common sense is the best kind of sense.
