Tumunga: That's like saying mud's not dirt, or ice cream doesn't have bones.


No, it's not. They're two completely different things, especially in terms of cost. Ink goes in inkjets. Toner goes in lasers.

Get a B/W laser printer for less than $100, the starter cartridge will last the average person a year or more. You can buy a remanufactured full cartridge online for around $30, which will give you 2000-4000 pages. The average $20 ink cartridge will give you around 200 pages. Plus, toner doesn't dry out.

saw the WWL and thought well shiat, my area. saw the town -- crap, poor way to make the news. ever since katrina this area has been going down hill. we had crappy people and drugs and all that goes with that but not to this scale.

If they sold a little of the weed they could have bought the printer.
 
2013-05-22 04:45:54 PM
Should've stolen the printer ink instead - Costs 3 times more than the printer?! What a world.

Woah. I'm 31 and just got carded fr cigarettes.

Ha. You definitely shouldn't have gotten that pint without ID.
I assume the pic was taken when you just turned 21?


It can't be more than a year old (both pics)...I think it's my Irish heritage.

4seasons85!: Thread jack: I accidently walked out of a 7-11 yesterday without paying for my soda. They caught me and I felt like a dolt.

End of cool story.


I did that at the grocery store, except it was a case of Coke Zero in the bottom of the cart that I'd honestly forgotten to tell the cashier about.

/got all the way to parking lot with it, scot-free, and remember thinking "Damn, I wish that were a case of beer!"
//yes, I paid for it
///had it been beer and not the locally owned neighborhood grocer that I love, I might have bolted
/guys, had you a free case of beer from Wal-Mart and were already way out of the store, what might you have done?

Counterfeit bills, most likely to pay for their habit...or get themselves shot by their dealer if he's paying attention.

This. I seen many dealer beat crackheads just for doing that

Cold_Sassy: Jument: A few months ago found a vendor selling ink cartridges for my Canon inkjet for $2 a cartridge. I shiat you not. The printer is getting pretty old so I figured it would give them a try and if they farked up the printer I'd just buy a new one. Amazingly, they actually work great. I've printed a few photos and they look as good as with the old ones and no problems so far. I'm farking gobsmacked.

Re TFA: yeah, you know you're irreversibly farked when you risk prison and death for $37.

Is that vendor local?  If available online, I'd be pleased to have that information ;)


Right off Amazon! Search for "eForCity 4 iNK CARTRIDGES". It was $8 for a pack of 4 color cartridges for my printer. I guess if your color use isn't balanced that isn't ideal. Also the large black isn't included. Still it's a screaming deal.

12349876: justanotherfarkinfarker: Why wouldn't you steal a good printer? I mean if you are gonna steal why not go big.

my only guess

bigger = harder to carry


Yup.  An el-cheapo printer would be a lot easier to steal.  I've got a decent color laser all-in-one here--it's big enough that I had to take it out of the box to get it home.

Tumunga: That's like saying mud's not dirt, or ice cream doesn't have bones.


While the purpose is the same the technologies are very different.  One very important aspect is that toner is a *POWDER*--there's no issue of drying out.  When you buy a laser cartridge that's good for say 2000 pages you can expect to actually get 2000 pages out of it whether you print them all out that day or print a page a day for years.

I hate people who LIKEd the Eagles but since they want to be cool like the Dude, have to hate them.

Clint Coslett (above, right) fases the same charges, as well as possession of marijuana and aggravated assault on a police officer by use of a vehicle.

fases?

SlothB77: Mr. Coffee Nerves:

steal the printer.  sell the printer for meth money.  buy more meth.


No no no. Steal the ink cartridges to sell. See relevant comments above.

These two simply illustrate my point about "too stupid to feed to your dog."

I'm thinking that the meth they tossed was worth more than the printer.

Too bad they didn't have a decent printer, they could have printed a coupon for the printer.
 
2013-05-22 11:05:09 PM
cops get to take home their guns -and- randomly spike strips now? well then.
 
2013-05-23 12:02:15 AM
You have to wonder about the intelligence of the police involved.  I don't like letting bad guys get away but is $37 worth a high speed chase which probably endangered the lives of 100s of drivers?

Mass media won't tell you this. You gotta look to the bloggers.

What the south does in it's own home is it's business. I know I don't want to see the South getting a rise.

SlothB77: You can get a printer for $37 now?


The HP Deskjet 1000 goes for $35.00, and works just fine for printing out term papers and online coupons, or tickets.  I picked one up because it was literally cheaper than buying ink cartridges for my old printer.

SlothB77: You can get a printer for $37 now?


Heck, you can almost get a laser printer for $37. Fry's (the CA electronics store, not the AZ grocery store) occasionally has them on sale for $49-$59.

ButtercupKitteh: cops get to take home their guns -and- randomly spike strips now? well then.


I'm pretty sure most cops take their guns home every day.

Spike strips, only if they're in the cruiser, I'd imagine.  And ditto for anything bigger than their handguns.

I used to work at that Walmart.

That's pretty funny.
