Pen vs Pencil

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.
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.
• 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.
1.) Erasers work based on quality. If by a cheaper pencil standard, the Dixon Ticonderoga has a good eraser for its low price.
2.) Fair point, see: Pilot Juice, Uni Signo DX
3.) You don't need to sharpen mechanical pencils, see Uni Kuru Toga
4.) Both tend to smudge if one goes for a lower price. For pencils, it can be necessary sometimes.
5.) See drafting pencils
6.) If you are referring to the Pilot Frixion, then you have no point. That pen uses an ink that is sensitive to heat. When one uses the rubber eraser, he or she is just chemically changing the ink to a different state, as in the ink just appears to be gone.
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!!!
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.
Reasonably true facts:
Pencil is made of wood, 100% eco-friendly
Pen, not very much
If you happen to crack your pencil, just buy a sharpener
and use it forever
If your pen lost its ink, how many trips to the local bookstore for you :(
You can erase pencil easily, fast, and clean
There’s such things like erasable pens, I know.
But they are slow, could rip your paper (worse your textbook)
I happen to find buy 1 take 1 pencils or maybe 3 in 1
for a dollar only.
You buy one pen for $2.
If you happen to have a friend in need of a pencil, you just break it in two and voila two pencils. After all, a friend in need is a friend in deed.
If you snap your pen in half, you’re screwed like your math teacher just asked you to recite Pi in front of everyone.
(Is in your favor pen lovers)
A multicoloured pen can be bought for $3
