I fill my old Canon deskjet printer with bottles of ink and a syringe simply through the ink pad at the bottom of the cartridge. Then i zap the chip with a resetter.
I took the printer on a plane for 12 hours, and then never got around to using it for 18 months! I then took it back home 12 hours on the plane, plugged it in and it worked perfectly.

There as a difference between saying an active ingredient is "safe and widely used" and claiming it is antibacterial. They were given time to prove it was antibacterial and they failed to demonstrate it. There is a difference between saying sugar is "safe and widely used" and claiming it prevents arthritis.

Woman, children and slaves generally did NOT have access to open air even in the 1830s, but then they generally were on trips of up to only 5 months from England to Australia or New Zealand. I think jumping ship in the South Atlantic is not any different than stealing a spacesuit and leaving the airlock - you'll die in about the same time.
