How many miles of ink are in a Ballpoint Pen?
Upon separation from the U.S. Army in November of 1971 I would estimate that I filled out about 2000 Job Applications to no avail under the onus of Affirmative Action. I cannot say how many ballpoint pens I went through over the years, but I do clearly recall the vexation of running out of ink mid application – twice.
And no, I never did find gainful employment.
Gainful Employment: When you still have money left at the end of the month.
Wage Slavery: When you still have some month left at the end of your money.
