My Printer Tells Lies

“Low on ink” “Out of ink”

Is not.

I used to believe it, and put a new cartridge in. Then I thought, ‘Is it true?”

I went right on printing despite the warning. It printed sixty more pages before it really was out of ink.


The more I ask “Is it true?”, the more things turn out to be not quite true, a misunderstanding of terms, or just plain false. Test it.
