    Yeah...but the pencil weighed 900 pounds, and 500 people were killed building it. Then it took 9 months waiting in line to get it. Hundreds of people saw the pencil and said it was kind of big and took too long to get. These people were sent to Siberia or never herard from again.That's why the Russions got to the moon first. Oh wait..........
