A bunch of black strokes

  1. The minimum cinnamon anemone aquariums require filling in is milliliters less than similar anemone aroma embellishments.

  2. It's not even a visual trick, there's slight lines connecting the strokes where they should be to make the appropriate letters.

  3. Damn it I can't. every time I try my eyes start tricking me with an illusion as soon as I start trying to read and separate the letters and I try to start all over again.

  4. Fun fact: This is actually the reason why we dot our "i"s. Lower cap i didn't have a dot on it until the latter half of the medieval period. At that time, a particular way of writing the Roman alphabet became popular: the Carolingian minuscule (see

  5. This is one of the hurdles when it comes to looking at historical documents. Historical styles of writing can be very difficult to read for people used to much cleaner text, especially those of us raised on computer fonts.

  6. Same reason why German handwriting puts a brevis above “u,” making it look like “ŭ;” it's otherwise really hard to distinguish from “n” in German cursive.

  7. Dear God, the horror. I'm having flashbacks to when I was in gard school and I took a class on the history of the English language. We spent so much time learning to read old English manuscripts that had a fuck ton of minims. I fucking despised having to count them during transliteration exercises.

  8. I took a history of English class as well and was looking for a "minim" comment. It was like algebra, where you spend 2 hours and 3 pages trying to solve one problem, and then finally you can read it in a simplified way. At the end you stop caring about the content because you're exhausted just trying to figure out what the content is.

  9. If I'm bored and can't think of anything to write I default to "minimum" over "quick brown fox..." It's fun to write, but good lord the endless posts on there were obnoxious

  10. Why did he start writing on the right side of the page? And then the finished word starts on the left. This breaks the immersion for me.

  11. I have really bad handwriting. So bad that I had to get extra lessons to try and improve it. One thing that they taught me was that you want to try and establish a rhythm using up and down strokes, and this can cause many letters to appear similar at first. The example they use was 'minimum', with the idea being that it all looks the same until you dot the i's.

  12. I practiced my cursive by writing minimum over and over and over. The curves go convex and concave, switching at irregular intervals, the inflections are positive and negative at irregular intervals. Great way to build muscle memory, but very fatiguing in the beginning.

  13. That final panel somehow manages to literally hurt the crap out of my eyes and brain. It is as if I get stuck into some eternal loop trying to make out letters and getting lost on what line I'm looking at.

  14. Fun fact, variations of blackletter were the usually-preferred fonts for printed German until the mid-20th century…

  15. Ha! My daughter's name is Autumn. When she learned how to spell her name in cursive she was so disappointed. "It's just a bunch of bumps"😥

  16. When 5, used to look at the word ‘him’ in the bible in the meetings and cover the top half, cuz I liked it was just a bunch of identical pillars.

  17. I remember a colleague mistaken 'on' for '011,' and asked why I chose the number instead of another number. I was completely lost. 😂

  18. As part of my masters in Classics I did research on Latin Manuscripts. Gothic script is indeed a hell of minums that never ends

  19. I thought once to write "femmescalor" - the warmth of women - in satirical cursive. "f" and 11 nondescript loops followed by "lor".

  20. This is very funny. However, I have a constructive critique/tip that you may want to consider in future: The characters in the 3rd panel aren't speaking in the order they're presented. The one saying "what does it say" should be on the left. Panels 1 and 4 would be unaffected. Just mirror-flip panels 2 and 3 and the 3rd panel becomes a lot easier for the audience to understand because there'd be no speech bubbles crossing each other.

  21. The minimum cinnamon anemone aquariums require filling in is milliliters less than similar anemone aroma embellishments.

  22. This is just like when you're not sure if the answer is true or false so you write something in-between that can be interpreted both ways.

  23. It says "Alan Jones (Sensible), 9,112. Kevin Phillips Bong (Slightly Silly), naught. Tarquin Fin-tim-lin-bin-whin-bim-lim bus stop F'tang F'tang Olé Biscuit barrel (Silly), 12,441. Well there you have it, the first result of the election as the Silly Party take Luton."

  24. I write in cursive (not the pretty type, but the incomprehensible and messy type) and whenever I write minimum it looks like scribbles. You could guess minimum from looking at this without knowing what it said before looking at mine.

  25. I write in cursive (not the pretty type, but the incomprehensible and messy half-cursive type) and whenever I write minimum it looks like scribbles. You could guess minimum from looking at this without knowing what it said before looking at mine.

  26. I went to a funeral over the weekend and there was some overly stylized text like this on the wall of the church it was held in. It took me 15 minutes to read the word "mourning".

  27. I hate that the top left panel shows the writing super close to the right side of the page, and the last shows it way to the left.

  28. I feel like someone's going to get the idea to use that name as a streetwear brand and use this as their logo.
