    We all find ourselves at the mercy of diabolical greed. To be stupid enough to sacrifice one's intelligence for the sake of status as in a $100 pairs of  Niki's  that cost $12  to manufacture and export is one thing. To be subjected beyond built in obsolesce is another. It's all part  of their well orchesstrated gotcha ploys.  I can readily identify  with the video- in particular the last few seconds. I've carried out that very same  process but grew more pissed when the sledge hammer's anvil  broke off.  The applied theory of my Stress Management courses  went out the window. It was like  paper-scissors-stone. Bashing at a chunk of plastic with a wooden club- then utilizing the stout anvil itself.  At which  point my dog just cocked his head upwards, as his eyes grew wide, sensing the frustration. The innocent creature took a few steps backwards. I was now  far past Customer Service and  not in the mood for an elevator's ensemble of greatest hits- nor willing to decrypt those obnoxious foreign accents..The pounding continued- just  like a drunken domestic dispute out of some trailer park. I was merely venting. Yet the chunk of plastic only splintered in a few large fragments here and there-- as if in total defiance of it's doomed fate. Then I really got pissed. The dog  backed away even further.  It was time to take matters outside. Residing in the countryside, I was damned if I'd  to cave to the cubical amenities of human resources and their departmental procedures-I had my own in mind. A bon fire came to mind. Despite the mild wind shift of deadly toxic fumes as if my Huey Prickard piece of shit was vying for it's last hurrah. From within the flickering flames-at last- those wretched little ink cartridges finally emitted their rich hues of Cyan, Cerpa and Yellow in one last, very brief, colorful flume. I watched gleefully as the plastic chunk self contorted itself into a blob- drenched over charred carriages of it's blacken remains. A man and his dog had triumphed over the vile and the greed of corporate technology. The  dog and  I slept well that night. I have concluded that one may return  to those "postal" themes of the mail service- via a 64 count box of Crayola and a Big Chief tablet. It would make for a better world.

    A scam indeed. Spending much for only 30ml.

    I just had a small argument with my mom about the ink running out. She asked me why the ink is already low when she bought it two or three months ago. Neither my grandmother or I were print often, so I was just as confused as she was.

    And the worst part about all this is the MASSIVE amount of waste plastic being generated. Not that I should be surprised that a company willing to take these kinds of unethical steps to sell more, would also be irresponsible about the consequences. But what do we do about it? I need to print.
