On Ballpoint Pens: Good design part one

What an elegant design...
Writing is one of the coolest things we humans have figured out how to do. Sadly it wasn't until some guy invented the ball point pen that writing utensils became really easy to use. Can you imagine dealing with a fountain pen? Having to refill it and making sure the tip was always pressed properly against the page... Ball point pens are SO much easier. Congrats to the inventor the ballpoint pen, László Bíró (though apparently that's disputed)
