    Comic Sans is a mature font for mature people like me.

    I like how we've all focused in on the font, rather than the game changing particle physics discovery.
    Mankind is one step closer to understanding the physical universe, but that's not as important as the font the chose for their powerpoint? bollocks.

    I like how they are all like "we found the higgs boson" not. "Well we found something that may or may not be a glitch but we'll need huge amounts of funding for another ten years to find out if its what we say it is and even if it is, is it important?". Seriously these people have some of the worst dollars spent to value to the taxpayer in the world. It is truly a sign of a collapsing eurozone/wellfare state that these people continue to receive funding.

    In a world where cheap urethane foam leads to the destruction of expensive spacecraft, nothing is too far fetched.

    Dude, those guys are gonna discover FTL travel, artificial gravity and how to make apple pie out of quantum void energy...

    What are you doing? Making some sterile crops to leech some nigger farmers a bit more, I guess

    Which, now that I think about it, is way more worthy

    Keep the good work!

    They probably just used it because it is easy to read. To my knowledge it has no instances of letters running together like some other fonts (TNR I am looking at you).
