Re: Another random question: ink
I'm not going out to the press area to drink ink for you, Mouse!
But I do lick my fingers to wipe the ink off on a regular basis, and it doesn't taste like much of anything -- possibly a tiny bit salty/sharp. We use soy-based inks.
It doesn't smell like anything, either -- and we have it on everything, including ten years' worth (in this building) ground into the floor, and large squid-like blobs spilled behind the ink totes from when they hooked them up to the pipes.
