Graphite is the most slippery substance on Earth.
Except it isn't. That auspicious title belongs to Teflon. This is why we have Teflon coated frying pans and not graphite coated frying pans.
Graphite doesn't coat frying pans because it's too slippery. It would just slip right off the frying pan.
I work nights are get the feeling of impennding doom for things most people take for granted.

I agree.  How can you expect the most slippery substance to actually stick to something?
