So I just found out that apparently everyone hates comic sans.


WHY DO SO MANY PEOPLE MAKE SUCH A BIG DEAL ABOUT FONTS. WHO GIVES A **** AS LONG AS IT IS LEGIBLE.

But seriously, in school a teacher would always say "times" or "arial" or whatever, then a bunch of people would complain saying that "that font sucks" and they want another.

I don't know why this annoys me so much, but I guess people putting so much focus into stupid things just really annoys me (ironically)


But really, what is the big deal here? They are just letters. The one and only valid concern I could see is that capitals "I's" should not look like lowercase "l's".

As long as it's readable and not cartoonish. Those are really my only standards. Comic Sans is cartoonish and not suited for anything professional. It has other uses however.

I like Dunkin but I haven't had real Tim's (non-US) in a while. Hopefully I'll be able to check it out soon. I'm not really sure what to look for in "good" coffee. It's not like wine tasting.

You might be surprised. The snootiest one I could find:



Silver spoon. But it makes sense since silver has no aftertaste.

They actually do this kind of thing on stock markets (the one I saw was held at the NYSE) and such to determine the nicest blends from around the world. The major brands will buy whichever they like the most/best represent their standard.

Two days ago I saw Joe Thornton go through waivers. I checked and he had 57 points in 56 games at the time of being waived.

Of all the "chains" in Ottawa, I think Timothy's has the best coffee.

Top-5 "chain" Coffee Brands in Ottawa
1) Timothy's
2) Starbucks
3) Bridgehead
4) Second Cup
5) Treats (really underrated coffee for what is essentially a small mall chain, IMO)

Hon Mention: McDonalds (way better coffee than Tim's, and the drive-through lineup is 1/3 as long.)

Some are pretty fugly. Some are legitimately harder to read than others.

Believe it or not, some fonts actually convey a greater authority than others (ie people are more likely to believe the information written in that font is true compared to others).

Regarding assignments, teachers ask specifically for Times New Roman or Arial because they are looking for a predetermined length. The teachers don't want to have to count all the words individually, nor do they want to do have to do a conversion between random, obscure fonts just to see if the student actually wrote within the allotted length.

As far as font use professionally; some fonts are indeed overused. They're avoided by graphic designers because you want to create a design that stands out. Changing your font can add a subtle distinction to your advertisement or brand that helps set it apart and is more appealing in its originality or creativity.

Some fonts have become so cliche that they're widely regarded as bad fonts (Papyrus is your cliched Egyptian font, for example).

Additionally, different fonts have different tones. A font like Times New Roman screams 'office typefont', while a font like Comic Sans screams 'this isn't very serious' (again, refer to the font-authority link).

They were probably just gearing up for a playoff run by unloading their chokers
