    Found a nifty chart that I wanted to share with you guys, just illustrates how big of a rip off printer ink really is:

    I won't lie. I have 4 printers at my house. Instead of buying a $45 ink cartridge, i just buy a brand new $30 printer each time i run out of ink and I figured I could sell the printer itself on eBay to recoup.

    Thoughts?

    Who buys Red Bull or crude oil by the mL????? I understand the charts comparison but Red Bull, is that really on there?

    And thank God my SUV doesn't run on printer ink, or I'd be broke.

    am I supposed to be surprised or shocked by this? Red Bull may give me the wings to write my paper but it isn't going to do a thing about printing it! Try drinking hp ink sometime...

    ^Selling used $30 printers will have you wishing you hadn't done that. Not a great idea.

    I bet you pay more to park your car each month than I pay to rent my townhouse.
