use only with a #2 pencil.

Some mechanical pencils say they have #2 lead. Some don't, or at least they don't say that they do. Are they #2? Is there some nifty pseudo-scientific way to find out or something?

Why is #2 so special? What happened to #1?

And what is it about scantron machines that they'll only pick up marks from #2 pencils? Have you ever done a scantron in mechanical pencil that wasn't #2 and it worked?
