A Landmark in the History of Waste- Mark it with your Bic

Yesterday the Bic Company announced the sale of the 100 billionth -100,000,000,000- disposable Bic pen since it was invented just after WW2. Of course, every one of them was disposed of unless converted to nefarious purposes like cracking Kryptonite locks and others we won't go into here. We note that at 15cm, lined up end to end this would stretch 3,750 times around the globe, or 40 times to the moon and back. ::Reuters
