Printer hack that really shouldn't work

Next to HOA fees the biggest racket in America has to be printer ink cartridges, what a rip. My old Epson ran out of black a couple weeks ago so on a whim I filled the empty cartridge up with water (3/4 full according to the utility) to see would happen and to my surprise it works perfectly.

I’ve been printing things for three weeks with it. I guess there’s so much ink left over inside it just kind of mixes. I doubt I could print a photo but for text and DVD labels it looks exactly – normal. It doesn’t smudge either. Huh?

In other news an NGO on a USAID project in West Africa is hiring an Onion Expert. I'm speechless.
