Dang it, you had me thinking all day long, on how to make a pencil! I think I could do it. At least far easier than a pen.

Actually, pens are pretty much a cinch. You can use any long bird feather, and trim the shank with a sharp pen knife (thus the name...) to form a cup and point. There's apparently a trick to hardening them so they work better, but when we were kids and screwing around, we just used long feathers. Heck, you can even trim a hardwood twig to sort of work, we used pokeberry juice for ink.

if we had a big event that took us back.
we would need special libraries.
like the seed vault.
to make a computer,
you need tools to dig for ore to make tools
to make tools to dig and prose chemicals
and dig for more stuff. just to get started.
all those skills will be lost.
so we need a library vault to save the information in.
Why has no one done this?
or has some one done this in secret?
maybe they did before?
maybe that's why are technology
has jumpt in the last 100 years.

Well we had Alexandria until the Christians built it.

We have the Hall of Records under the sphinx but Zahi Hawass won't open it (or has and wont tell anyone).

Technology has complicated life beyond imagination.

yes. but what of us?
all the knowledge we have acquired.
we need to build one now,

man is far to compulsive.
we should not live like we di now.
maybe some thin in the water?
but I think we know its the government.
they have used compulsion to make us do what they wont.
we are week willed compulsives.

It would be best if there was no record of this iteration of humanity.

We are a disgrace to the creator.
