Too Many Fonts

There Are Too Many Damn Fonts! Blogspot has Eight Built-in Choices!

But the most frustrating thing is selecting a font in MS Word. As far as I know, everybody in the entire universe uses Times New Roman, Arial, or if feeling a little crazy...maybe Courier.

There are so many choices it's overwhelming! Who has time to figure out which font would be the perfect choice? I mean, after 5 minutes I might be pretty sure I wanted Lucida, but do I want Lucida Bright, Lucida Fax, or Lucida Sans?

I want to go back to a simpler time, when all we had was that fixed spacing system font that made us all sound like robots.

Happy Thanksgiving

Something I notice every year about thanksgiving ads is that there is usually a fully cooked and uncarved turkey sitting on the table.

For example, look at the picture above I found in an ad. Is anyone planning to eat this turkey? Everyone has a full plate and has started eating. Has our level of decadence and waste reached the point that we roast an extra turkey for display purposes?

And what drugs did they give to those kids? They're not complaining and it looks like they might even eat some of that food. This is setting the bar too high for those of us in the real world.
