A new typeface called ‘Dyslexie’ has been designed which claims to help dyslexic people read more easily.

It’s based on the notion that of the 26 letters in the standard Latin-based alphabet, as used in English, many of the letters look similar – such as v/w, i/j and m/n – thus people with dyslexia often confuse these letters. So by creating a new typeface where the differences in these letters are emphasized, it was found that dyslexic people made fewer errors.

"Late one night in autumn, unable to sleep, I found myself walking the deserted city-streets. For what seemed like hours I passed empty taxi ranks blown with wet leaves and litter, shop fronts shuttered with graffiti, and the black windows of closed takeaways. Suddenly I found I was walking through a wash of light coming from a large shop whose interior was brightly lit and whose entrance was open. A soft, tinkling music invited me in to the clean, spacious shop-floor. There were no customers, nor, as far as I could see, any members of staff. I began to browse the shelves..."

Riots caused by society or lazy, thieving pricks, say experts

THE London riots are the inevitable consequence of a society that includes some arseholes who like to steal things instead of working, experts claimed last night.

A man was leaving a convenience store with his morning coffee when he noticed a most unusual funeral procession approaching the nearby cemetery. A black hearse was followed by a second black hearse about 50 Feet behind the first one. Behind the second hearse was a solitary man walking a dog on a leash. Behind him, a short distance back, were about 200 men walking single file.

The man couldn't stand the curiosity. He respectfully approached the man walking the dog and said:

"I am so sorry for your loss, and this may be a bad time to disturb you, but I've never seen a funeral like this. Whose funeral is it?"

"My wife's."

''What happened to her?"

"She yelled at me and my dog attacked and killed her."

He inquired further, "But who is in the second hearse?"

The man answered, "My mother-in-law. She was trying to help my wife when the dog turned on her."

A very poignant and touching moment of brotherhood and silence passed between the two men.

"Can I borrow the dog?"

The man replied, "Get in line."

Anyone can be a graphic designer. Test your typography skills. If you don't know what Kerning is, you're going to be useless at this:

First go without trying, 82/100 and 3 perfect 100s, baby!

Awesome 360 panoramic camera. Chuck it in the air and it takes loads of photos which are stiched together afterwards.
