have you ever scrolled through so many fonts at one time, that your eyes start to hurt and they all look they same?

You can no longer differentiate and find it impossible to decide which one looks better....


that happens to me waaay too often..I've stopped scrolling like that cause it just makes things worse.


does this happen to anyone else?

I end up not only getting ill,but I start to think ugly
fonts look good...and I end up with a bunch of fonts that
are all so similar that they no longer are unique and I
don't even think I'll ever use half of them when I finally
come out of the "font fog".I mean why does MS have so many
f-ing cursive fonts that no one will ever use except if
they're printing wedding invitations in Flash or something?

And as for the MS Fonts thing - thats cause Microsoft seem to think that all there users have the combined IQ of a Raddish and would love to make there official documents or there web sites look hand writien or in some illegible copperplate type :(

HAHAHA!
Isn't it annoying when they do that!
I have customers who completely ignore my professional advice and pick a really nasty typeface - cos, like, obviously, they are the expert . . .

. . . I mean, would you take your car to a florist to be fixed?
