I have quite a few pencils that are essentially useless. Attempting to sharpen them ends with the graphite snapping off before I can write the first letter of a word. I know it's not the pencil sharpener, as other brands of pencils sharpen just fine. Is there a clever way to reuse these crappy pencils?

I've seen people smash up the graphite into a powder, then use it in artworks or even home chemistry experiments. I used to make a powder out of it and have my family put their fingers in it, then put them on a piece of paper, forming a finger print! Hope you enjoyed these ideas. Have fun.
