  • Jory's never used a #1 pencil, and Jon's never heard of a #3 pencil.
  • This was a good idea, because it enables a person to harvest graphite for their mechanical pencils.
  • 2 minutes was chosen for the microwave time, in honor of a #2 pencil.
  • The pencil still remains one of Jory's favorite experiment results. He loves when something small and seemingly boring creates an epic reaction.
  • Jon uses mechanical pencils.
  • This ends a 14 episode long pattern of "Bad, Good, Bad, Good."


  • Jory: You know, a lot of you have been writing to tell me, "Jory, you should microwave a pencil, a Dixon Ticonderoga." And I'm gonna Ticond-a-do-it!
  • Jon: If you know anything about it, leave a comment down below.

Jory: Comment down below!

Jon: Down below, just where Jory likes it!

  • Jory: It really smells like pencil shavings in here.

Jon: It's nice, it's a nice smell. It's not the best, but it's not the worst, certainly!
