There should be something on how and why the ink of a pen explodes sometimes. Is this because of the pressure? --22.214.171.124 22:52, 3 December 2006 (UTC)
Exploding ink??? Are you 4 years old? Ink can't explode. It doesn't contain explosive contents in its makeup. Try holding the pen softer. -TTT13
He/She may be referring to explosive devices that both the Allies and Axis spies used to set fires and for other sabotage during World War II, and also used in other operations by spies and terrorists, guerrillas. These look like ink pens, even function AS pens, until a certain action is performed, then the pen explodes and/or sets things on fire. During World War II, the FBI seized some of these from enemy agents that landed in the US. Assume Good faith please, and sign your statements with four ~s.

The ink in the pen is not explosive, but when enough pressure is applied it can explode. Another factor that comes into play is the temperature, if you have ever dried a pen then ink tends to get all over what you were drying.Jcordell21 (talk) 04:25, 12 December 2016 (UTC)
Actually, the op is referring to when the heat gets too high and it explodes. Try putting it in your pocket for a few hours in hot heat. --126.96.36.199 (talk) 16:37, 2 June 2009 (UTC)
