People at my high school would print pictures of Bill Cosby to make the faculty mad. So they banned student use of any printer, and the average GPA plummeted because many students didn't have printers at home and couldn't print their work. Then somebody figured out how to get on the faculty network, and printed a hundred copies of Bill Cosby to the faculty printers. So they re-instated student printing.

in high schools, the teachers have to pay for the ink out of their own salary.

That's a weird coincidence, since, earlier in the year, for no reason, I would go to the library, print out multiple picture of Bill Cosby, and tape them around the school, (ASB didn't like that) it was super funny just hearing people talk about how they can't turn a corner without seeing Bill Cosby and knowing that I am the one that caused it all. Also, people would try to take credit for them, but enough people saw me doing it to tell them to stop lying, which is awesome because people frequently take credit for random **** that I or my friends begin.

Assuming you go to a public US high school, they actually really can't afford the ink for the printers because hardly any US high schools are actually funded properly. Not to mention that greedy superintendents take a ******** for their salary and give none to the schools (my high school's super make $220,000 a year and some of our hallways didn't have ceilings)
Though they were being humongous dicks by not letting ANY students print on their printers

I have a teacher that says he just buys a new printer whenever he runs out of ink because its cheaper than buying the damn ink itself.

lol I do the same, the printer i have each ink cartridges is like $70 for my type of printer, and the printer itself is like $50 which is ******* retarded

What?
Some printers, especially ones that they use for colleges are over a thousand dollars, and that's nothing compared to the ink cost

I couldn't agree more. I love how they pretend it's coming out of their pocket, when in reality that is what the tuition is for. It pays for the professors, building upkeep, and access to technology (like computers and printers) that some people can't afford to have while attending college. I had a laptop, but I didn't have a printer (I could afford a new ink cartridge every two weeks when they are $55 a pop).

I can understand if it's free education, like school and college over here. My college used to make us pay for printer credit at the college shop and we had to top it up every time it ran out otherwise we couldn't print anything. But I'm going to University soon which is £8,500 a year so I sure as hell hope they don't charge you to print there.

I have no idea what the **** is going on with our colleges in the US. The Public colleges have amazingly high tuition rates, but are still amazing savings compared to the now ridiculous rate of private University tuition - which can be around $50,000 a year.
For Example -
I am currently attending UConn (very well-known as one of the higher quality public schools in the US -not trying to stroke my ego like a douche, I just thought it might help with perspective if you've never heard of it), where I pay ~$20,000 a year. Yet with that tuition price, the school is still supposedly running on a deficit - since it's supposed to receive money from the govt. And so, on top of tuition price, we are expected to pay for using the printer.

Well, actually do to my major, for some reason I don't have to pay for printing . But everyone else does.

User avatar #157 to #70 - awildniglet (06/19/2013) [-]
I go to Rutgers in NJ, and it's basically the same **** . We get a budget of roughly $10-$20 (depending on your major and how much you actually pay vs. the financial aid you get) of paper's worth to last us the entire year. What they don't tell us is that they factor some sort of percentage of ink into the price of "paper" that we're allowed to print
As a journalism major, it becomes pretty damn pricey to print news articles multiple times a week. I end up stealing my roomie's printer to do so lol
#41 - silverhellion (06/18/2013) [-]
working at a printer cartridge store, i think i'm qualified enough to say ***** HELLA EXPENSIVE YO. the latest brands of printers will slowly drain the colour out of your colour cartridges, even if you only print in black. The monopolisation of ink by the printer companies also means that you're paying almost twice the amount the cartridges are actually worth.

basically, don't be scared to go to a refilling place, the companies will try to scare you away from getting refills by saying it nulls the guarantee on it, but the average life span of a printer nowadays is 2-3 years, with the exception of canon printers ( ******* just keep truckin').

TLDR: refill when you can, you'll be paying roughly half of what you normally would.

it's because there was this huge homestuck bandwagon/ ********* a long time ago that pissed everyone off, roughly the time of the homestuck heyday. Ever since then homestuck has garnered nothing but red thumbs.

They would also stop requiring absurd page limits on papers. 50 page paper for a 15 student classroom? and it isn't the professor that is to blame either because the school tells them they must assign work of a certain level. I had a professor who didn't want a larger final paper but the school told him that each student was required to write a final 15 page paper or more.

At OSU they make non-engineering students pay 9 cents a page, ink or not, and if it doesn't work, too bad. Plus, a lot of teacher expect you to print out notes before class. **** OSU.
User avatar #154 to #68 - awildniglet (06/19/2013) [-]
A 50 page paper is really not that tedious or unfair, even in undergrad. However, I agree with you that they shouldn't make students print the 50 pages out and physically hand them to the professors. Instead, they should just use a dropbox or send them via email, especially if the class really is only 15 students
User avatar #164 to #154 - IamSofaKingdom (06/19/2013) [-]
Setting aside the fact that my point was a complaint over ink (thus 50x15 would be a ton of ink that they impose on students themselves) the 50 page limit is a tool originally to get students to learn more about a topic and thus fill those pages and is now a tedious measure of how well a student makes up fluff to fill the space. Minimum page requirements are an outdated technique. If you have a student smart enough to fully answer a question, validate a statement or convince you of their argument in less pages then they should be permitted to use less pages. Forcing them to extend the discussion past their point is a waste of resources and a waste of time for both parties involved.
User avatar #175 to #164 - awildniglet (06/19/2013) [-]
Depends on the topic. For a number of my classes I didn't have any papers with the exception of one at the end of the semester. And, in a lot of cases, it's analyzing a particular topic of our choice.
I did one last semester on the effect of the Frost-Nixon interviews' effects on journalism. I didn't feel like I had to fluff up the paper to fill space because there was a lot to discuss. But that's just me, I guess. I kinda like writing papers
User avatar #74 to #68 - majortomcomics (06/19/2013) [-]
Agreed, that always pisses me off, (I'm only in high school, though) a capable student will be able to convey his message clearly in a few pages, so really we have to dumb down whatever we're writing.
User avatar #147 to #74 - IamSofaKingdom (06/19/2013) [-]
We learn how to BS instead of how to learn and show actual knowledge and understanding. I totally agree when people say American college is, for the most part, a joke.
User avatar #148 to #147 - majortomcomics (06/19/2013) [-]
As do I. I don't understand why the ones with great comprehensive abilities have to water it down, and stretch it out. I swear, if I were allowed to write it in 3 pages, I'd get a better grade because I'm not stupid enough to know how to drag information that comes naturally to me on in such a way.

I used to work as a lab tech in my college. There is nothing sadder than telling a student that he/she can't print their essay that's due in less than an hours because some jackass decided to use up all the paper printing a bunch of song lyrics.
