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

    The Russians used a pencil.

    Enjoy paying your taxes--they're due again.

    That NASA pen must have wrote in red ink.
