A fountain pen is a nib pen that, unlike its predecessor (the dip pen) contains an internal reservoir of liquid ink. The pen draws ink from the reservoir through a feed to the nib and deposits it on paper via a combination of gravity and capillary action. Filling the reservoir with ink may be achieved manually, via the use of a Pasteur pipette (eyedropper) or syringe, or via an internal filling mechanism which creates suction (for example, through a piston mechanism) to transfer ink directly through the nib into the reservoir. Some pens employ removable reservoirs in the form of pre-filled ink cartridges.

So, I talked to a few of my friends and had decided that I was going to write about I missed about home and stuff, you know. Buzzfeed stuff.

They don’t get the publicity and promotion like the other bands or Bollywood do/does. So, I didn’t know of many heavy metal bands. I mean, I’d heard about them a while back and dismissed it because I wasn’t sure if what they were saying was true.

TV shows have been changing for generations now and a lot of the shows have gotten worse rather than better. No doubts that there are obviously good tv shows out there and people (including me) watch them. Game of thrones, Sherlock, Merlin, Suits are examples of good television. But nothing beats the iconic show “I Love Lucy” in black and white. So, here are the trashiest tv shows ever made that we love anyway (Because who doesn’t like watching drama, right?). Come on, you know you do. Admit it already – the trashier, the better. I mean, the shows are so bad they’re good.

Hi guys! Hope you’re having a great weekend. I just finished watching “Jerry McGuire” for the first time and it’s fucking awesome. Maybe I’ll just change my mind about it 5 years later but as of now, I love it. What can I say? I’m a sappy romantic. Yes, I admitted it. Well, come on! It’s Tom Cruise crying, can’t say you don’t love it. And the part where he comes come and tells Dorothy why he loves her and telling her that she completes him is everything!
