Um.... what.... aka, this is the dumbest thing I've ever read

I guess Martin Shkreli doesn’t own it anymore.

The Twilight Zone did absolutely not use Bernhard Modern. It’s custom lettering.

And Courier is a perfectly respectable and highly legible type family. Including Courier and Comic Sans in the same sentence is an affront to type history.

Maybe it kind of similar–at least to the letters that were capitalized.

But that was kind of a overdone tirade on the part of the judge, not to mention a waste of time. Why not just say verbally “I have a hard time reading this brief. Change it to [acceptable font].”

Oh. I was only thinking of the title “Twilight Zone.” I shouldn’t reply to posts I read when I first wake up. That is definitely Bernhard Modern.

I just like Bernhard Modern and Bernhard Gothic. Lucien Bernhard did great work.

And I still stand by Courier too.

Victor Miller is running for mayor of Cheyenne, Wyoming, with an unusual campaign promise: If elected, he will not be calling the shots—an AI bot will. VIC, the Virtual Integrated Citizen, is a ChatGPT-based chatbot that Miller created. And Miller says the bot has better ideas—and a better grasp of the law—than many people currently serving in government.

“I realized that this entity is way smarter than me, and more importantly, way better than some of the outward-facing public servants I see,” he says.

Well, the first part of that sentence definitely looks to be true.

For Miller, this whole initiative started with a public record request. He had requested records from the city anonymously but says he was told by a city employee that anonymous requests were not allowed. “I asked our public records ombudsman if that’s correct, and she said, ‘No, that’s not correct,” he says. Miller was frustrated. “I got to thinking, why don’t they just go by the law? Why don’t they know the law?”

VIC’s proposal to fix Miller’s open records issue was to fire the city attorney and to “rework the city to where it came in line with the state statutes,” he says. “I thought that was a good answer, and reasonable.”

Yes, it totally makes sense to fire the city attorney, who (according to the details provided) wasn’t even involved in that single mistaken(?) response, and “re-work the city”. Very reasonable. Has anyone who actually knows the law been able to quiz “VIC” on various aspects, just to see if we should hold “VIC” to the same standard?

Oh, I think we know who VIC really is.

First time I’ve ever heard of “counterfeit titanium.”

However, I do recall an incident at the FDA where some tungsten wire was embedded in a titanium hip implant due to a light bulb breaking above the molten metal.

This is old, but it’s making the rounds again because Joe Rogan (of course) gave him a platform for some of this lunacy and more…
