5.When a Lead Tip of a Pushup Pencil is Lost

90s kids will understand what this is. A pushup pencil is a kind of a mechanical pencil, which is made from plastic, and uses a series of plastic pencil tips arranged inside a pen like body.

This isn’t just a pencil, this also doubles as a dart gun to shoot sharp pencil leads at people necks.
