I'm putting together a book listing reasons that design will ruin a person's life. It's not solely about typography, but the largest chapter is devoted to it. Suggestions/contributions are welcome, and will be credited (I don't plan on publishing or selling it, and if I did, it wouldn't be for profit.)
Examples from the text:
"You will take a long detour around Illinois to avoid seeing a poorly kerned sign."
"You have a carton of acid-free orange juice from 1983, and think it's still good."
"You are prepossessed to dislike any person that is an orphan or widow."
I'm looking forward to hearing any input on this. Just don't bother telling me that I have really horrible ideas, I already know!
