This is my first fountain pen and after getting this, I'm pretty sure I will only buy fountain pens from here on out. When I buy a new type of something I like to buy the best quality I can afford to make sure I am giving something the best chance and not evaluating a new thing, in this case fountain pens, using less than ideal quality.

I bought this pen as a treat for myself to power up before cancer treatment and it really helped my mood to have a new toy.

This is a fine nib. I saw recommendations to get mediums, but I wanted to make sure it was fine enough to still do crossword puzzles. This pen feels almost perfect. I have no complaints about it at all and I'm a stickler for details.

The best thing about going fountain pen is the mental freedom of being able to use as much ink as I want without worry about the price. I was pounding through relatively expensive rollerball cartridges and they ain't cheap. I am going to hand write the Bible with this one. I like the Mont Blanc black permanent. That's another thing I like better. All of the Mont Blanc rollerball inks are not permanent and bleed with a bit of water. Nice to know what I write is permanent.

This is me new everyday carry although I always have a couple back ups within reach.

And it's not a greed thing, it's just a way for me to create the best pens and a way to get myself one. The concept is only one pen of a given design will ever be sold. Catch is the buyer has to pay for one to be made for me also. Zero profit, all manufacture could be outsourced. My pens would not be for sale at ANY price.

Become a pen designer and get them made for free. Gives me the ability to get pens that I can't afford. No greed.

I have a lot and will continue writing them. I try to open my mind up and pray for what I really want. It's hard to pray and believe for the biggest things. Cure me of cancer. No. Eliminate cancer. Etc…. Hard to think of the best prayers and the best wording. Eventually maybe I get as good at writing near-perfect stuff like the Forefathers did with the founding documents. Still working on the Bible. Also have to think about being careful to not pray for something you don't really want. Tricky wording. I just pray once then focus on beleiving, so I figured it would best to work on a set of prayers and and believe them to be true rather than repeat prayers (except for daily forgiveness, etc.) then it's more about continuing to build your set or update prayers as you learn and build. Seems to work. Seems like writing it has some power-up effect. Just sharing because I like you and maybe inspires you to write some of you own. I already won.

I finally made it! I have a ton of writings and notes, I love annotating the scrying into a story! Looks like I need to get myself a true fountain pen, missing out on the experience. I would use charcoal if that was the only thing left! Definitive Definitions are the roots to understanding.

Your notes are very artistic. That is way better than just writing on a computer. If you used a fountain pen, then you could have a little more line variation, but that depends on the pen.

I was surfing around and found some lovely pens Of course I bought them. The first one has arrived. It is pretty in real life as well. I'm sorry to say it really has its price competition, but the Pilot Animal costs about $20 and this lovely gold tinted refillable.

I'm not sure why. It could just be a clerical error, but it was listed on the website as a medium tip. However this tip is fine. I'm not sure how much of the gold is real, but there is some gold tint in the nib. It's nib has the name JinHao and an F on it. Surely the F is for fine. Actually I'm not in the best position for writing since my desk is occupied today with kids studying for some test. That relagates me to the floor. Which won't make Ann excuse for my spelling, but maybe for the smearing and penmanship. this pen is exciting to use and my total cost, including shipping was five dollars. Jinhao medium tip luxury pen is definitely worth a fiver, and I intend to keep this around as my usual fine tip pen. My trusty Dude medium tip, and my new JinHao luxury fine tip are going in my backpack. Until they und up a leaky mess. That way I'll be able to put my expensive pens way.

Jinhao Luxury. Yeah!

I bought the Mont Blanc Moon Pearl Legrand Rollerball a while back. I bought it before I got a fountain pen and realized they are much better, but it's still a pen I really love. It's a beautiful pen with mother-of-pearl inlay and the emblem is also mother-of-pearl I stead of the standard white. I'll add a couple pictures in the thread. It had a very nice huge box with it that had some small cards and envelopes and a wooden stand.

Breakfast nuggets are delicious and I modified this recipe to use panda meat. If you can't get panda meat you can use regular pork sausage, bacon, ham, or whatever. I tried to submit this idea for free to McDonalds because I think they would be very tasty, would make them a lot of money, and I just want to be able to buy them without having to make them. They're seriously fucking awesome! I shouldn't even share the idea for free because they are tasty and no one makes them.

>Why this is suddenly a problem or massive issue with whites ONLY is a mystery to me; especially since whites – already a global minority – are in demographic decline throughout the West.
I didn't write much about the "why" of anti-racism, because I wanted to focus squarely on proving it was wrong. But since we're all in agreement here, my opinion is there are two main sources:

1) Moralistic zeal among Europeans. Europeans have always been into irrational moral crusades. They used to express this through religion, now they express it through liberalism. I don't know if its part of European nature, or comes from Christianity. Part of Europe's success is the prevalence of pro-social behavior, including a strong desire to punish wrongdoers. Where there are no actual wrongdoers, I think Europeans invent them. I think a few people have written about this, but I can't remember off the top of my head.

2) Jews an other minorities (including European minorities in the US). I especially didn't discuss this because I don't want to do it without solid references. Basically I need a lot of quotes from Jewish liberals saying "As a Jew, I feel insecure in the US as long as Whites are dominant". I know this opinion is often expressed by liberal Jews, but it will take work to get the most representative quotes.

Strong writing and I agree with much you want to say save for the idea that race alone is enough to generate companionship and a sense of belonging with someone. More important than race is ideology and culture. I can't connect with most people of my race because their ideologies and cultures are actively in opposition to mine. I can only connect to and feel comfortable with people who share an open mind and who are capable of debating things philosophically and without hostility, prejudice, or the kind of moralizing that stunts actual conversation. Race and ethnicity have nothing to do with this. The conclusion of the racialist view is that I will feel the most comfortable with people of my own tribe->ethnicity->race->species etc.

I feel comfortable with people of my own culture and ideological underpinnings.

Thanks for the feedback. I agree that culture and ideology are also very important. What I was trying to avoid was implying that race was unimportant, or that it's immoral or irrational to care about race. But I think I went too far in the other direction, and made it seem like I was mainly focussed on race.

On the cultural side, I want to preserve Western culture, and I also think the Western culture is the only way for the rest of the world to improve their situation.

On the racial side, it would be a tragedy if the aesthetic beauty of the White race disappeared, and there is probably a connection between race and culture too.

Many of my friends take orders from other students and write essays for them. But it looks risky to me. I would trust my work only to a skilled writer and not to a beginner. I cannot fail my work. And I have to find a reliable service with experienced authors who can guarantee good quality of an essay. What do you think of https://www.superiorpapers.com/ ? Are they professional and do everything on time? Who worked with them?

I haven't used that particular model of Pilot, but I'm pretty partial to the Pilot G2 gel pens. Uniball is decent as well, but I have had some bad experiences with Unis that really wanted to bleed all over the page.

With the Piliot HiTec, you mean or the Uniball? I've always been a fan of gel pens myself, ballpoints have a tendency to be sketchy, but a good gel seems to be more reliable overall. SMB Balance (a small business blog) ranked the Pilot G2 as the top gel pen. Course everybody has different tastes and not everyone is a gel pen fanatic like me, but for my money it's the G2 for everyday use. I used to occasionally pick up a Uniball, but it's been years since I even bothered due to occasionally ending up with an inky mess ruining my parchment.

Mitsubishi Uni pens rock hard pens. The Uniball is so smooth. They were my first exposure to roller balls. Roller balls are different than ball points. Roller balls and this fine liner as well use fountain pen like ink. So they are much smoother to write with. This requires their ball to be smoother than a ball point pen ball. They are more sophisticated.

Spend a little bit more when ou visit the stationary store and the Parker 18k tipped fountain pen might catch your sight. I couldn't resist the smooth lines, and brilliant sparkle of the gold trimmed four color pen. There are six visible 18k gold pieces on the Parker Sonnet II pen. This French made beauty is worthy of the royal blue ink it holds in the refillable barrel.

Putting all the beauty of this pen aside. It just isn't balanced right for me and the shaft is to thin. My hand constantly slides down the shaft causing defective penmanship. Perhaps effeminate French hands can hold on the grip better. Definitely, Sloppy and Beautiful

I don't have one yet though. I had a Parker pen when I was in high school but I dunno where that is. I may have had 2 or 3 but only one at a time. I made sure they all had my name engraved in script.

How does a Parker 51 compare with say a modern Ohto?

My diplomat has instantly become a great pen by throwing away the super crapy converter. That it was shipped with. I put a black quink cartridge in and now it has a great inflow. It is a fine line nib with a bit of flex if you put a pressure on it.

Inc spews out at a great rate. The numerous absolutely gorgeous, big and bold, which makes a statement in a fine line. Is becomes an extension of the hand. No pressure is required to get this big heavy pen moving across the page. It is absolutely splendid, the way this pin fits into the hand. It may be worth while to attempt and I dropper conversion. I noticed that an O ring came on the threads of the pen. This pig pen might hold 6 cm³ of ink. Maybe even up to 10C c's. If I can successfully seal the golden And white snowflake cap.
