Turns Out There Is More Than Enough
A Japanese ballpoint pen artist took it upon herself to find out exactly how much ink was in a pen. Her method involved drawing as many smiley faces as she possibly could.
Asuka Sato, the artist in question, drew exactly 29,249 smiley faces to see how much ink was in a Hi-Tec-C ballpoint pen.
The entire project took six days. On her first, Sato discovered that one 10 cm by 15 cm note card could hold exactly 600 smiley faces.
She continued the process, separating the note cards into grids which made it easier to line up each face in groups of 3.
Sato took over 10 hours on her second day to continue filling out note cards. In total she filled out nearly 49 note cards. Which, when laid from side to side, looked like this:
Twitter followers were more than impressed with Sato's efforts, commending her for taking the time to see what we've all probably wondered.
"Wow." Source "This is not sane." Source "Awesome, beautiful smiles. Thank you for your hard work." Source "Congratulations!" Source
Sato said the idea came to her as a way to avoided going outside. "I'm an indoor person, so I started this project as something to do at home during the summer," she said. To make matters even more impressive, Sato said she drew some of the faces without any smiles!
