May God bless ingenuity. You all have probably heard a Staples ad on radio pushing refills for ink-jet cartridges, and adding to the enticement by promising US$3 for every old cartridge you return to them.

Today, I learned why, when I went to Staples to buy new ink cartridges.

Hoo-Lah! There, on the rack, right next to the genuine HP cartridges, were prominently-displaced STAPLES remanufactured ink cartridges, 15% cheaper! They are making lots of money on these things, even after giving me $3 for my old cartridge and refilling it with 15 cents worth of new ink.

Ain't life wonderful?
