How come they don't start make magnifying glasses glasses? Big ones, that sit on your face. But not always over your eyes. As soon as you start to squint...a smart auto-magnifying thing detects the wrinkles on your face - what the hell does that say? - and flips down...presto, easy to read. The little twerps who are shrinking print...for who, or whom? Tiny people, who have eyes the size of the periods at the ends of sentences? Science is maybe planning to shrink everyone, to say an inch tall, or so...so we use way less resources, and the onslaught of tiny tiny tiny print is to psychologically prepare us all, for that day, when some of us - who get a bit too much of the shrinking ray - are able to ride a submarine through a blood stream? Whoa..look out for that big white blood cell! It doesn't look too friendly! I don't get it!!!!
I often see a container that has plenty of room on it...and that space is not used. Instead, some doofus label designer goes with a lot of blank space, that has no print on it - three quarters of the bottle or box - and then a label that has tiny tiny tiny...the fewer atoms used to form those letters, the better. Maybe looking to get an award...for a label that's hard to read, even with a magnifying glass? Maybe people who do that just chuckle all the way home? Maybe they're all sadists...I dunno.
But with an aging population...and eyesight not what it once was (though I think in my case, my eyes are still pretty good) (though there is a group trying to wreck them...average age maybe around 30, plus stupid)...it so begs for some younger folks to get friendly punches to the head. Hey, yo...I so enjoyed your shrunken label that was actually impossible to read, without a magnifying glass...punch!
The same with the fonts in this site lol... tiny prints that one need stronger glasses to read what anyone is saying... like your font Rod, .. thus is why I use "reply Quote" so that I can make the font larger lol..
