For the rest of the day, post in Times New Roman. Show the internet that we're not mindless Pit Monkeys flinging metaphorical shit at eachother, but sophisticated and productive members of the webbernets.

There is nothing bad about Comic Sans. Shut the fuck up you macro whoring tools.

But you didn't.

Honestly, who cares anyway?

The only reason Times New Roman is popular is because it had been a word processor default for so long. It's effective for newsprint, which is what it was designed for, but for other applications there are far better typefaces. This being one of them. And this isn't even the best 'Garamond'. If only I had access to Adobe Garamond Pro...

There are plenty of other serif typefaces that are more readable and more elegant than TNR too.

1) It's ugly.

2) Its kerning is uneven, which contributes to 1).

3) It's used by people who think that they're being 'cute' and 'different', when really it's absolutely everywhere. Even worse is that people use it when it's wildly inappropriate - business emails, memos, funeral notices, wedding invitations. The only place you should see comic sans is if there are 6 year olds involved.

4) More decorative typefaces work better if they're not something that the reader has seen five million times before. There are thousands of free typefaces out there that look far better than comic sans, and won't make people rage to see them.

Palatino Linotype ftw.

A fine choice.

Stop being a font-whore, as long as you can read it easily there's no problem at all.

I have a lecturer that makes us submit all essays in Times New Roman size 12.

It makes me want to cry.

I like it though. It makes your papers seem longer than if you use the default font.

Most universities have font restrictions, simply for clarity. Many fonts are made for stylistic reasons and as such are awful to read, and when you're a lecturer who has to read a hundred 2500 word essays you want things to be clear and easy on the eye.

Verdana is the largest font in MS word. I know, I checked them all.


Verdana 10.5 with 1.5 line spacing is my favourite set-up for typing longer pieces of work. Verdana is just very pleasing to the eye.

It's a fairly nice typeface, but serifs are a lot clearer for body text. There's a reason that the vast majority of books are printed in serifed typefaces. Garamond variants, Book Antiqua, Sabon, Bookman, Bembo, Palatino, Hoefler Text...

As I said, it's badly kerned and uneven. A decent serif font looks better, is easier to read and doesn't make things look like a six year old wrote them.
