Ten Things of Font and Fray

Fonts change the meaning of a message/BBC
  1. Your brain mistakes the reading process for what it’s reading about, so an easy-to-read typeface will likely convince you that your DIY furniture will be easier to assemble.
  2. Oldest words in English: "I", "we", "two" and "three" are claimed to be among the most ancient, dating back tens of thousands of years, according to researchers.
  3. Uhtceare is an Old English word meaning to lie awake anxiously before dawn. Similar to insomnia, but more time-specific, in that it is a name or noun given to the state of being sleepless.
  4. An angular typeface can make a jellybean taste sour, whilst round-shaped typefaces can make the same sweet taste sweeter.
  5. Reading between the lines: The body language between two major European leaders Angela Merkel and Emmanuel Macron, who visited the White House this week, revealed different dynamics with Donald Trump.
  6. Erudite and imbecilic, rapper Kanye West defends his pro-Trump politics in a new song.
  7. Dancing queens Abba have returned to the studio to record their first new music since the 1980s.
  8. England's capital London has seen an outbreak of toxic caterpillars that can cause asthma attacks, vomiting and skin rashes.
  9. A summit between the leaders of North and South Korea has been hailed as a "historic meeting" paving the way for the start of a new era to rid the peninsula of nuclear weapons.
