I find copperplate, papyrus, and words in a script font typed in all caps to be more irritating.

Almost as irritating as the host's nasally staccato voice.

There's one that was a ubiquitous bad font on cheap, knockoff products and fliers for stuff like salsa dancing in the mid to late 90s and I can't find the name of it, but that is the worst font I know of. It's kind of chunky and ~~~QuIrKy~~~ and has a lot of unnecessary little dots and lines and things around the letters.

Old_Zircon - 2014-01-17

Comic Sans is kind of like the font equivalent of Atari E.T. really. It's definitely bad but it's pretty far from being as awful as its reputation suggests.

CuteLucca - 2014-01-17

Old Zircon, I think you're thinking of 'Jokerman'

gravelstudios - 2014-01-17

My favorite 90's font is the one with snow on the tops of all the letters.

Pope Caius - 2014-01-17

Chiller font every October.

Old_Zircon - 2014-01-18

It's not Jokerman, although that one is pretty similar. Somewhere I have a cassette of my high school band that used it as a joke, if I can find that I can scan it and use one of those automatic font ID sites to finally figure it out. I forget where it came from but I think it shipped with WordPerfect around 1994. It definitely doesn't ship with MS Office today but it might have come with Office 97. I don't think so, though, because I used that until the mid 2000s and I definitely didn't have that font on any computer that belonged to me, just on the family Pentium in high school.

Old_Zircon - 2014-01-18

Jokerman is always the "RealWorld Zydeco CD font" to me.

Old_Zircon - 2014-01-18

The one I'm thinking of is closer to Burweed Thorny but it's more blobby and less pointy.

Old_Zircon - 2014-01-18

It's Pecos!

Old_Zircon - 2014-01-18

Wait, no, Pecos isn't old enough. But it's really, really similar to Pecos.

Old_Zircon - 2014-01-18

Anyhow, in retrospect Jokerman's a lot worse and was a lot more overused.

Pretty informative video presented by someone with the worst body language possible. I started to wonder if he was raping animals just below the camera angle.

TeenerTot - 2014-01-17

I happened to listen to this without seeing it. Interesting topic.

Jet Bin Fever - 2014-01-21

Yeah, he detracts so much from his own video.

baleen - 2014-01-17

I find this man's shtick to be insufferable. I can't stand his face. Or his voice. Sorry, the topic is great.

Monkey Napoleon - 2014-01-17

It's too bad, too. His channel is awesome in that interesting topics is all he covers, and he covers a lot of them. I'm subscribed, and I frequently watch... but I can only handle maybe one or two videos at a time.

delores_showboat - 2014-01-17

I can't stand his fucking voice/face either.

craptacular - 2014-01-17

I completely disagree. His presentation is fair and clear, he's upbeat yet maintains a curious attitude throughout the video, he doesn't speak in monotone or speak in a "I am vastly smarter than you" sort of way, and his videos always meander thoughtfully around the topic. I think he matches, say, Carl Sagan in presentation, but avoids causing sleepy feelings by keeping his clips short. Sagan's hour long shows sometimes dragged...
tldr y'all r haterz

Hegemony Cricket - 2014-01-17

I was just thinking that if Carl had popped up into frame more often like a feel-good kids show Nosferatu and had learned to tighten his whole "explanation of the known universe" shit up, I might respect him as much as wannabe internet personality guru #5,600,735.

I mean, really, a whole hour comparing the Voyager mission to Dutch explorers in the seventeenth century? YAWN! That should have been summed up with a few costumed cat photos and a broad nodding smirk--AT MOST.

Monkey Napoleon - 2014-01-17

You're both being silly. He's no Sagan, but the thing you're harping on him for doing now is EXACTLY what Sagan was. I suppose guys like Brady Haran are just wannabe attention whores? (if you don't know who that is than I pity you)

baleen - 2014-01-17

He is nothing like Sagan.
I feel like I've seen his videos and perhaps even liked some of the, but man. Sometimes SCIENCE IS SO COOL! programming for grownups really chafes my bit.

memedumpster - 2014-01-18

So, knowledge, like sex, is best taught by spastic clowns?

Oscar Wildcat - 2014-01-17

There is a presenter on PBS in NYC, you KNOW his parents were geeky typesetters, because his name is Raphael Pi Roman.

Robin Kestrel - 2014-01-17

I an familiar with the works of Adrian Frutiger.

infinite zest - 2014-01-18

I blame comic sans for getting me fired from a job years ago. Make one little joke about how overweight women are the only people who uses it and your fat fucking boss waddles over the best she can and tells you to pack your shit and go
