I just found out that Erasers are ‘an instrument of the devil and should be banned’. That came as a surprise.
Not only did erasers turn out to be evil, apparently you can summon demons with pencils.
Come on, what’s going on with British newspapers this morning‽ No need to sell stories in such a sensationalistic way.
Since we’re talking about surprising things anyway: I was also surprised to find out that 3D pens are very cheap now. You can now get one for under £30 / under $45. I think they started out costing more than three times that. Of course the more expensive ones might be better, but I wouldn’t know – I haven’t tried any.
