Disposable Rob: Mytch: That's nice. What font did you use when you discovered the God particle? Oh, you didn't? How about one of your other major physics discoveries? None? Okay then./stupid people problemsI read that in Willy Wonka's voice.

NeoCortex42: Expolaris: I can't blame them, they are engineers, and thought like engineers. My brother (an engineer) didn't really see a problem with the typeface, he was more interested in the data.Just funny to see how a little detail like this can stop people from taking in how awesome this is.This is why there are designers, and people who are really good at typography to present this kind of information to the public.My advisor during grad school (physics) used Comic Sans for all of his presentations. I tried and tried to convince him otherwise, but he always went back to that damn font.
Tranquil Hegemony: So, to summarize, presentation doesn't matter when you're presenting something. FARK HAS SPOKEN
rustypouch: Comic sans is not nice. When someone uses it in a professional setting, they let me know they have next to zero grasp on how to effectively communicate, how others perceive them, or just don't care.
