Reading = Longevity
Who knew? Read more, live longer was the outcome of some research summarised in The Guardian on 9 August 2016
Published in Social Science & Medicine, September 2016, as:
Lebanese typographer Nadine Chahine on why Arabic needed some new fonts – fascinating and linear
Spot the typo:
- through the enactment of 236 laws and more than 8,600 local statues
- a muse house with a beday in the bathroom
- Now bake for 3540 minutes
- the chaos of battle: the canons, gas attacks and shrapnel
- Use an eclectic whisk to combine the ingredients.
- This hansom corner plot offers a versatile duel aspect
- rescue kit should include a bum dressing
- HR manager responsible for the conflict of employment
- best to give him a wide birth
- be at the fairy terminal some time around 6
- the lunatic fridge
- an insulting layer in a building’s fabric
- to trash out the logistics for the training
- nor do we do it on propose
- those who lived pubic lives
- the gathering of manna in the dessert

“Atypical” is a series of posters exploring form and rhythm of letters or pseudo-letters presented as half-realistic, half-illustrative figurative paint sculptures
Some of these are in common use – some ought to be:
AFAIK as far as I know
CIH come in handy
FLA four-letter acronym
GIYF Google is your friend
HTH hope this helps
RLF run like f***
RTFM read the f***ing manual
tl;dr / TLDR / tldr too long;didn’t read (known as teal deer on a knitting forum)
TLA three-letter acronym
TMI too much information
TP toodle pip
TTYL talk to you later

Where I've Been
I have been in many places, but I’ve never been in Cahoots. Apparently, you can’t go alone. You have to be in Cahoots with someone.
I’ve also never been in Cognito. I hear no one recognizes you there.
I have, however, been in Sane. They don’t have an airport; you have to be driven there. I have made several trips there, thanks to my friends, family and work.
I would like to go to Conclusions, but you have to jump, and I’m not too much on physical activity anymore.
I have also been in Doubt. That is a sad place to go, and I try not to visit there too often.
I’ve been in Flexible, but only when it was very important to stand firm.
Sometimes I’m in Capable, and I go there more often as I’m getting older.
One of my favorite places to be is in Suspense! It really gets the adrenalin flowing and pumps up the old heart! At my age I need all the stimuli I can get!
I may have been in Continent, and I don’t remember what country I was in.
It’s an age thing.
