I like how someone took the Arial font and thought "gee, that's just too stimulating." And along came Utah.

Fun fact:
Comic Sans was named after Cosmic Sands, New Mexico. It was designed by the local Serif. He couldn't write none good. But he was good people.

You have to use Baptismal before you are welcome to use Utah.

Holy carp. Since 2003 I think I've submitted maybe four links and they had all already been submitted by someone else. I am a leach on the system, apparently.

Fun fact:
Comic Sans was named after Saturday Night Live alum Horatio Sanz and was designed by his father, an influential graphic artist from Santiago, Chile. It was originally used on a series of flyers to promote his son's early comedy career and existing copies in good condition can fetch upwards of $100,000,000,000,000.

The cartographer's failure to locate Kernsville, PA on this map is not bold.  In fact, it's completely unjustified.

Was the typeface named later than July 29, 1869?

I spent a lot of time there, and not once had I ever seen that font.

/The "Nebraska" font, however, is spot-on.

Salmon: The sidebar story about unattractive people is interesting.


I'd like to see the male/female split on that one. And maybe also by wealth. And whether there are inflection points or groupings between twos and threes vs. fives and sixes.

I don't know what it will look like, I'm just interested in seeing how it would turn out. On one hand, women are less visual so some unattractive men can get laid. On the other hand, even unattractive women somehow have plenty of men hitting on them. So not sure if the societal reinforcement skews things.
