Bonus: These are my people. : Benjamin Molineaux @benmolineaux Kids today: "you mean the save' button represents some kind of physical storage disk? OMG" Me today: "you mean 'upper case' and 'lower case' refer to the physical cases where printers kept their letters? OMG" Upper Case ib @% % 2 Em E& ECE BCDEFG L MINO PQR TVW X Y Z fA 4 5 6 718 e b n m En Em y p w QdOds JEm t Space Quads Lower Case 3.15 Pair of printer's cases (drawn by Rudolph Riลพicka for D.B. Updike's Printing Types). 19:24 13 Sep 19 Twitter Web App Marc Verstaen @verstaen Replying to @benmolineaux and @GlennF It has French roots. Case means box in old French. Upper boxes, lower boxes. Bas de case, haut de case. 12:26 14 Sep 19 Twitter for iPhone Starburst vacuum @miopapio 4d Replying to @benmolineaux and @MaryRobinette now i only need to understand where the words type and font come from, and i'm done 1 21 Don Mackie @mackie_don 4d Font has a common root with found as in foundry. Type cast from molten metal. Having seen them in action Linotype machines are among my favourite bits of machinery. A giant typewriter with a furnace and crucible of molten lead at the back. There's a romance here.

Replying to @benmolineaux and @MargotAtwell 4d Point sizes are seemingly random between typefaces because they refer to the piece of lead the type was on which you can no longer see 15 1 Katrina@KatrinaTransfem 4d There are 72 points in an inch, and the point size refers to the total height of the character set 2i 1 2 24 Margot Atwell @MargotAt... 4d Wow, I never realized this. I love type history! 1 2 Moon-faced Assassin...4 Replying to @benmolineaux and @Kilalalaa Also, in a printing press, putting a bunch of common words or phrases together is accomplished by mounting them in a single plate of text called a "Stereotype." And the sound it makes when it's pressed to the page is "cliche."

Ladies if u want a man in your bed u gotta have a comfortable bed. With that said lemme give u my guide to a bed that will not make me invent a work emergency and Usain Bolt out yo crib after I smash u out. (1) Multiple pillows. A brother like me got stomach issues from leading a high stress life. Plus, pillows can be used for various sexual positions. U can never have enuf pillows. One definitely ain't enuf. U gotta be out yo damn mind to try to pull the ol college student "sorry! I usually sleep alone ๐Ÿ˜ฌ" one-pillow situation - that we gotta share ๐Ÿ˜ซ. Do u still wear flip flops to the shower and eat lunch and dinner in a cafeteria with swirly ice cream for dessert ol freshman 15 lookin ass? No? Exactly. U an adult now, go to target and buy some pillows. (2) Covers. The professionals among u got two comforters which makes your situation damn near a furnace - u smart. U very smart ๐Ÿ˜...and that lead me to my next point. (3) Cool room. All u ladies who live in a old ass building in Wrigleyville with a bed by the heat radiator for Chrissake your room is a sauna. U pull the cover off me and steam might come off my ass and burn your face like a baked potato out the oven after u tear the aluminum foil off. Just put sour cream and cheese on me Cot damn it I been cooked alive. If yo room is a steam bath, crack a window. The hot-cold can be refreshing. (4) If the sheets is stinky winky status I'm gone. Imma invent a work emergency before I even get nekky. This is a no brainer. I love a womanly scent all over the bed because sweat is sexy to me but keep things tidy and let us be the ones to fvck it all up ๐Ÿ˜€. Anyway, if u meet these criteria, imma move in. Congratulations. I'm a roommate now. U just started a family. U feel me? We adopting a pup. Let's go to traders joe and buy wholesome, nutty organic non-GMO snacks to eat while we watch Netflix after we just smonked the marijuanas. Simple as that. It feels good to be home ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚: they grow up so fast @Drsmashlove Ladies if u want a man in your bed u gotta have a comfortable bed.
