Only the pen can make shiny, neat looking black ink marks on paper. Pencils cannot be used to have a "Marker War", but pens can. Pens have a one syllable name, so you save energy just by TALKING about them compared to the extra work you'd have to go through to say that other word: "pen-sil". So basically, the pen is superior in every conceivable way.

I do not agree with you

if you want to underline smth you can do it with a help of marker

but pencil is better than pen

1) you do not need to press

2) you can erase without difficulties

3) grey colour is nicer than dark blue

It is so much more convenient and faster to write with a good liquid/gel pen. The ink flows nice and neat and makes make writing faster and easier on your hand, when hand writing long text segments. Ink looks more official and not you don't have to mess with how sharp the tip is or how much lead you have and Mechanical pencils always jam.

I'm a leftie, and though i get pen on my wrist, it doesn't irritate as much as when I get lead on my hand. I get red spots from it. And honestly, I like writing in all the pretty fluorescent colours that pens come in :P

• The erasers on the pencils don’t work well, most of the time they don’t erase, and they make the paper the color of the eraser.

• Pens can come in many different colors.

• You don’t need to sharpen pens.

• Pencils smudge a lot, and pens won’t.

• Pens can be used as a defense tool against random muggers.

• Erasable pens will completely erase the ink, while pencils usually leave a mark on the paper.

People should not laugh at lefties because they get their hands smudged so easily, even though I'm not one…

Lefties will get their hands smudged. Minimum characters 50, so here they are…

Pencils could be erased easily while pens could not and are much cheaper than pens. Some pencils like mechanical pencil could last longer than normal pens.

The ink of pens smudge the edges of your hands and even though pencils smudge too, it's easier to wash off.

black and white in a bright colour look well

moreover the structure of pencil is better, so it is a nature thing

A pencil can be broken into many, tiny, little pencils, sort of like the pencils you would use if you were keeping score in mini-golf.

Breaking your pen does not lead to many, tiny, little pens.

Pencil is much more versatile than that of a pen. You can draw with it, write, and erase if there is need to, whereas pens you cannot fully remove the mistake. Pens are subject to running out, which would require purchasing new pens, whereas pencils just need sharpening. Pencils rule!!!

The flow of the pencil on the paper is non comparable to anything.

The pencil is the best tool for drawing, but not so much writing.
