yeah. i remember reading something insane (this was also back when gas was only like $2 over here) that if one were to buy printer ink by the barrel like we did with oil, it'd be...i don't remember. but it was insanely high. there's no fucking way it can cost that much.

what i suggest people do is buy the cheapest printer possible. when you run out of ink, just buy a new printer. it's so sad that it'd be cheaper to do that than buy new ink cartridges.

I'd rather play to bullshit academic expectations and produce something intelligent than write dross to go with a catchy headline that will sell papers.
I'd rather not write than do the vapid crap they want us to do.

Bollocks.

I work like to eventually work at Marvel Comics. They are the ones with Spider-man, X-Men, Iron Man and so on. I love comic books. The characters and relationships are so interesting.

Holy shit. I thought it was bad when it cost $30 or so for my printer's ink.

Which reminds me, I probably should get some more black ink today ...

But Ian, you've got to let the public know about the stories! How will they cope if they don't get headlines like PRINCE CHARLES IN GAY LOVE TRIANGLE WITH PAKISTANI TERRORIST!

That's a great idea.

But seriously, how can not having Cyan ink render it impossible to print?
