The real reason is that Scangrade The Magnificent, a test grading/world domination device, uses lead from the number 2 pencil as it's energy source and after 50 years of testing his power will finally be great enough to take over the world.
Yes, I took selected art classes in high school and majored in Fine Arts and Visual Communications in college; so, I'm quite familiar with the different "H", "B" and "HB" grades of drawing pencils. Charcoal and pastel crayons have similar gradings for the relative darkness when applied to a given surface or how course or fine its grain is in reference to the former or how saturated or diffused the color is for the latter.
hahah nope my school's machines failed every student in school and we all used 2b pencils but the machines were really trashy at detecting the marks and the highest score anyone got was 54.
teachers had to remark every single student's answers for all the subjects but those low scores were still kept in our reports.
I hack the scantrone checker its not really electrical its surface censor try to shade all circle with the tip of the ballpen cover then pick a answer using a pencil the machine will register your answer is correct
What if I want to use a 9B pencil and a kneaded eraser? Why can't I do that? It's darker than a No. 2 pencil, and since I'm the only one at my school with enough sense to wear a pair of Artist gloves when I draw or write, no one can do the sameas me(smudgy lines. Very smudgy lines)
Pssshhh.. Once when I was in 7th grade we had to take a stupid muscle test in gym, I didn't have a number 2 pencil so I used my mechanical pencil, it still worked. So suck it teachers who freak out if you're using a mechanical pencil!
I once tried to use an HB lead mechanical pencil on a state test. The teacher was insanely mad because it was mechanical, not wooden. I still use mechanicals pretty much everywhere, with B being the one I use for art, or #1.
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
