Man, those things are ugly. There's something elegant about the smoothly sculpted edges of a #2 pencil... They're way more reliable.

I remember in the academy, they used to say you line up 25 recruits taking a test with automatic pencils, and one of them is going to jam up on them sometime during the test.

That was back around 1980 though. I think some of the new mechanicals have finally proven to be reliable enough. They're still ugly though.
