We've certainly witnessed one too many ink cartridges perish at the hands of a crushing radial, but those instances all stemmed from fighting the good fight with frustration. Australia's National Park Service is giving those fed up with paying far too much for far too little ink another, more reasonable method of extinguishing their anger with the creation of a 17 kilometer long bike path connecting Alice Springs to Simpsons Gap in West MacDonnell National Park. 'Course, recycled ink cartridges are just part of the eco-friendly solution, but it's not too far-fetched to think that another couldn't be built entirely from what your own corporation trashes in a single month, right? On a related note, that guy looks like he's having an insane amount of fun. Jealous.
