I bet they tried it with ink cartridges before they realized that ink had a higher markup.
2005-06-13 10:42:02 PM  
Crap. I've just got ink in mine...
2005-06-13 10:42:23 PM  
Hell, those cartriges are cheaper with the drugs in 'em! Who needs ink?

So toner carts are part of a balanced breakfast?
2005-06-13 10:44:31 PM  
Must be those lex*ark cartridges. the ones that come in the printer are only half full and have some strange substance coming out on the paper.
2005-06-13 10:44:39 PM  
Do laser printers have coke in the toner thing then?
2005-06-13 10:44:43 PM  
Yuck. Ink and special K taste the same.
2005-06-13 10:45:53 PM  
Now that's ingenuity.
2005-06-13 10:47:11 PM  
does it come in RGB, or just black?
2005-06-13 10:49:11 PM  
I just cracked open and drank from my printer cartridge... don't feel high.
2005-06-13 10:49:51 PM  
No wonder my letterhead couldn't stop dancing!
2005-06-13 10:50:23 PM  
That's where all my ink's been going.
That biatch.
2005-06-13 10:51:55 PM  
I think the next trend is smuggling drugs disguised as prescription meds. That's what I would do if I were a big drug-smuggling dude.
2005-06-13 10:52:09 PM  
K? Ketamine? Shiat, i'm clearing out Best Buy!

/didn't RTFA
2005-06-13 10:52:38 PM  
Man, that K from Japan is garbage. There hasn't been good ketamine around since the days of Fort Dodge but now that stuff is impossible to get your hands.

Saw my future in a K hole once and it was good. You'll never trip face any harder than you will on the Special K.
2005-06-13 10:53:44 PM  
And I thought was sketchy. My roommate ordered from them. Honestly cheap prices!

Back in the 60.s, I went to heaven and hell on acid.

skinink wins the thread. LOL.

Effects can range from rapture to paranoia to boredom.
What are you looking at, nevermind.
2005-06-13 11:14:00 PM  
That drug is retarted. I had an old girlfriend who liked that shiat. I got rid of her. She made a lot of other stupid decisions as well as this one. She wasn't so smart.
2005-06-13 11:16:39 PM  
There my brother over there, he retarded, his name is Special K.

Yeah, I'm not a fan of going into a borderline coma for hours on end. I'll pass on the Ketamine.

I personally feel that good old fashioned PCP is the far superior animal tranquilizer. Except when I wake up in dark alleys holding a bloody screwdriver.
2005-06-13 11:22:36 PM  
Well, the heroin-filled cartridges are still cheaper than the ones filled with ink...
2005-06-13 11:24:22 PM  
Victoly: There my brother over there, he retarded, his name is Special K.

By "brother" do you mean yourself?
2005-06-13 11:24:27 PM  
um... mrvikings, that has what to do with what exactly?
2005-06-13 11:24:50 PM  
I thought it was strange that my professor was smoking the papers that I printed and turned in.

I had a friend who "accidentally" snorted ketamine and cocaine mixed together (it was his dumb ass that mixed it) at a rave. From what I hear, he had a bad seizure at said rave shortly thereafter.

Didn't learn his bloody lesson, either.
2005-06-13 11:25:22 PM  
Prescription drugs are the wave of the future. Think of all the people who are addicted to illegal drugs and multiply that by 10, and that's how many people are already addicted to prescription drugs.
2005-06-13 11:28:08 PM  
bcrackmonkey, I know you're trying to raise hell, but I'm on so much Xanax, I don't even know what's going on enough to care.

Ooh, not good. In Malaysia, they kill you for drug trafficking.

Seriously, when you land in Malaysia, the captain says "All right folks, welcome to Kuala Lumpur International Airport. The weather is a sunny 33 degrees. Trafficking in drugs carries a mandatory death sentence in Malaysia."

/you think I'm kidding?

Custom5: No I don't, brother.

Quick! Swallow this ink blotter!
2005-06-13 11:43:29 PM

Is this OBVIOUS the way rain on your wedding day is IRONIC or am I missing something?
2005-06-13 11:47:33 PM  
theyre gonna get tortured for that... especially the malaysian one.
2005-06-13 11:50:52 PM  
I like the use of the obvious tag on this one
2005-06-13 11:52:44 PM  
dint realize the market for special k was so prevalent. hallucinogenics will ruin you. even ones disguised as tranquillizers.
2005-06-13 11:57:10 PM  

I think it's OBVIOUS in a tongue-in-cheek way. Like, what possible reason could printer companies have to make toner cartridges to ridiculously expensive? Oh, obviously, drug smuggling.

/Or something
2005-06-13 11:58:50 PM  
well lookey here. now who's the popular one huh?

/got nothin'
//sinks back into obscurity
2005-06-14 12:01:01 AM  
They don't have to worry about the police, wait until Hewlett Packard and Lexmark get at them for tampering with their product, they will pay for that!!!
2005-06-14 12:09:28 AM  
I just thought of something...does busting drug dealers represent a failure to support entrepreneurs?
2005-06-14 12:12:52 AM  
Why are they wasting their time on K? They should be focusing on busting up meth rings. Unless they don't have meth over there.
2005-06-14 12:14:27 AM  
Special K is the hardest you will ever trip, ever.
2005-06-14 12:17:32 AM  
Been over 5 years, and a good boy now, but yup, K is one hella trip from what i remember. I remember being conscious at a friends house, TV on, etc, suddenly time came to a complete standstill. I'm looking around the room, and everything has totally stopped. Whoa.
