In a digital world, one skill that is starting to slack for me is the fine art of sharpening a pencil. I type most of my work and prefer using a Sharpie pen for any handwritten notes. I haven't had to fill out a scantron in several years, so my use of a pencil has obviously dwindled. When sharpening a pencil, I used to simply use a small plastic pencil sharpener, like one you may find in the zipper part of a trapper keeper or inside of a Lisa Frank pencil box. This video has made me rethink everything I thought I new about sharpening pencils.

The video also made me see the value in investing in an old Wu Tang Clan t-shirt.

Tip of the hat to Adam Webber for sending this my way and inspiring me.

Is this a real video? You can read this Wikipedia page and find out for yourself since everything you read on Wikipedia has to be true and factually accurate, right?
