What basic technologies are you completely baffled that we, in 2011, have not managed to perfect yet?(r/AskReddit)
Some pens are just better than others. I’d recommend the Zebra F-301. You can pick up a 2-pack at an office supply store or Walmart for about $3.00. These pens will motherfucking write any time you need them. I’ve used them outdoors for years. It doesn’t matter if the paper’s soggy (though the ink will bleed), or even hard frozen at -50. It’s going to work. Stop wasting a quarter on a crappy pen and get one that’s going to last until it runs dry.
