    America FTW

    When NASA first started sending up astronauts, they quickly discovered that ballpoint pens would not work in zero gravity. To combat the problem, NASA scientists spent a decade and $12 billion to develop a pen that writes in zero gravity, upside down, underwater, on almost any surface including glass and at temperatures ranging from below freezing to 300C.

    The Russians used a pencil.

    Canadians used a felt marker. And I'm pretty sure pencils don't have ink

    The USA spent 12 billion on innovating a Pen that could do all that, and the Russians didn't innovate anything but just used a regular Pencil
