During the fight Colby got his jaw broken, got knocked out in the last round and then proceeded to literally run away during the champ’s victory announcement. [video]/[video]/[video] “This fight is greater than me just beating up a guy that’s talking a lot of shit. This fight means a lot to me, so when I get a chance to put my hands on this guy let’s just know it’s the wrath of every single immigrant that has stepped foot in this country.” - Kamaru Usman Happy Black History Month Omg.

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."
