Ink vs Blood
Ink is literally more expensive than human blood.
⭕ Printer ink may be one of the most expensive liquids one can buy. As this graph shows, printer ink is rather expensive, and costs more than things like human blood or a barrel of crude oil. People won’t always need ink, but people will always need blood. When was the last time that you donated blood?
Cheap Printers, Expensive Ink
⭕ Cheap Printers, Expensive Ink. Ink jet printers are often very cheap. That’s because they’re sold at cost, or even at a loss — the manufacturer either makes no profit from the printer itself or loses money. The manufacturer will make most of its money from the printer cartridges you buy later. Printer manufacturers produce the ink as well as the hardware, this means you buy a cheap printer and then they sting you with their expensive ink – they’ve got you!
⭕ I recognize that there are many ways to view a situation, and our own way is not the only correct one! Am I the only one around here who thinks that’s a good thing and that human blood should cost less than the other things in the list? What is your point of view? Let us know in the comments below.
