I enjoy collecting pencils. I hope to have the world’s largest collection of pencils one day and break the world record. Currently I have 5,806 pencils.
Here are some interesting facts about pencils:
– America began to mass produce pencils in 1861
– Pencils are made of clay, graphite, and incense cedar wood (there is no lead in pencils)
– The world’s largest pencil is 65 feet tall
– Most pencils sold in Europe do not have erasers
– Most pencils sold in the US have erasers
– Henry David Thoreau made his own pencils
I admit it may be weird, but I think pencils are cool.
