Stuff I bet you didn’t know (I didn’t know it, either)

You can yell fire in a crowded theater.  Turns out this thing is kind of like that Scopes Monkey Trial where nearly everything we thought we knew about it is completely wrong, practically upside down.

This study on the weird letter g only used in certain fonts, the one we all recognize but nobody actually writes, was interesting to mainly for this conclusion:

“This outlier “g” seems to demonstrate that our knowledge of letters can suffer when we don’t write them. And as we write less and become more dependent on electronic devices, the researchers wonder about the implications for reading.”

    “g” – Interesting I suppose one’s exposure to the letter on screen devices depends on the choice of font. I’ve never tried to hand-write it in that form.
