By Salvador Rodriguez: Teen: save millions-change type font A 14-year-old student has
published a study detailing how the U.S. federal and state governments
could collectively save about $234 million a year by simply switching
the type of font that is used on printed documents.
In his study, Suvir
Mirchandani, who lives in the Pittsburgh area, said he found that
Garamond is the most efficient font for printing, among the fonts
recommend for use by the General Services Administration. This is
because Garamond uses thinner strokes for its letters, meaning less ink
is used on each character.
If the U.S. government stopped using Times New Roman and Century
Gothic and switched to Garamond, it could reduce its annual cost of ink
from $467 million per year by more than 29%. That means it would save
about $136 million per year.
An additional $97 million could be saved if state and local governments made the switch too. H/T: weaselzippers
On this date in 2036, asteroid "99942 Apophis" had a 1 in 5,560 chance of
hitting Earth. 99942_ApophisAs of May 6, 2013 (April 15, 2013 observation arc), the probability of an impact on April 13, 2036 has been eliminated. Preliminary observations by Goldstone radar in January 2013 effectively ruled out the possibility of an Earth impact by Apophis in 2036. Yeah, well, we'll see. Rather, you'll see. I probably won't be around, but others I know and love will be. Good luck, y'all!

Two Statements to consider:
We are told to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a
few lunatics. BUT on the other hand, we are also encouraged TO judge ALL Gun
Owners by the actions of a few lunatics. Now, just HOW is that supposed to work
.....?? The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S.
Department of Agriculture, is proud to be distributing this year the greatest
amount of free Meals and Food Stamps ever, to 47 million people as of the most
recent figures available in 2013. Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S.
Department of the Interior, asks us "Please Do Not Feed the Animals."
Their stated reason for the policy is because "The animals will
grow dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of
themselves." Thus Ends Today's Lesson On
