“Comic Sans looks like someone threw up on the keyboard and that’s what came out,” graphic designer Dave Combs told The Huffington Post.

Combs is one of the many haters of Comic Sans, a font that looks like the writing in an old-fashioned comic book, that was invented by Vincent Connare 20 years ago.

This Underwater Airplane Flies Through The Ocean Unlike Any Submarine Before It

It all started with a little crab.

While conducting tests with a conventional submersible that crawled on the bottom of the sea, ocean engineer Graham Hawkes came nose to nose with a little crustacean that was poised to fight the underwater machine.

“I remember stopping and laughing,” Hawkes told The Huffington Post. “But I thought, ‘That crab has got it all wrong. These fish are moving in three dimensions. This guy is scurrying along the bottom. So am I. We’ve both got it wrong.'”

Inspired by the movement of fish, Hawkes designed and built the DeepFlight Super Falcon, a submarine that flies through the water like an airplane, instead of taking on water to sink itself. Similar to how hot-air balloons release weights to fly up, traditional submarines have compartments that fill with water to sink down.

Hawkes started a company out of his garage to create the DeepFlight Super Falcon in 1995. Today, Hawkes’ dream has become a reality. “What we’re doing is really, really obvious,” Hawkes said. “There’s nothing that clever about it. We actually build a thing that has wings, we build up speed, and it just flies underwater.”

Amputee Turns Tragedy Into Triumph With Action Sports Prosthetic

Snocross and motocross racer Mike Schultz had been a longtime competitor in the Winter X Games before losing his left leg in a tragic snocross racing accident in 2008. However, the inspirational business owner used the tragic event to better his life and the lives of other action sports enthusiasts.

In this exclusive video, Schultz shares the gruesome details of that fateful day. “It was a pretty big hit,” he recalls of the moment he found out that his leg would need to be amputated above the knee.

When he returned from the hospital, he “got sick of sitting around” and started building a special knee and prosthetic leg to accommodate his passion for riding. Soon the Moto Knee was born.

“I use a little Fox mountain bike shock and it has compressed air in it so when I put my weight down into it, the spring pushes me back up,” Schultz says of the design.

Ron Klein, Inventor Of Credit Card Strip, Made Little Money From The Invention

“I think the statistics today talk about 609 million credit cards that are in existence, just here in the U.S.,” says Ron Klein, the inventor of the magnetic credit card strip. “When I hear those kinds of numbers, I almost have to be apologetic.” Even though his invention changed credit cards forever, he said he never made much money off the patent.

Like any good inventor, Klein identified a problem and created a solution. When Klein returned to the states after serving in the Korean War, he found that the way stores were handling so-called “charge purchases” was needlessly complicated. Klein used similar technology that was used in reel-to-reel tape recorders to create readable strips on credit cards.

Don’t feel too bad for Klein’s lack of monetary gain, though. He made more than enough money from his other inventions, including a “nutrition system” to raise chickens more efficiently.

Mind-Reading Headset Helps Physically Disabled Communicate

At age 4, Tan Le and her family left Vietnam as refugees, venturing out to sea without a clear plan. Her upbringing ultimately inspired her to think big, and now she is making a major difference in the world.

“Anything, even death, would be better than life in that environment,” the CEO of Emotiv Lifesciences describes of the once war-torn country. Upon immigrating to Australia, Le’s parents impressed upon her and her siblings to “work hard, study hard, get good marks at school and then do something worthwhile with our lives.”

Initially, Le began with the simple desire to be able to move something with her mind. That idea led to the creation of the Emotiv EPOC, a headset that “picks up electrical fluctuations that result from neurons firing inside your brain.” With a set of 14 sensors, the device can detect the user’s thoughts, feelings and expressions in real time.

Digital Camera Inventor Explains How Technology Took Down Kodak

Steve Sasson was working at the applied research lab at Eastman Kodak when he was asked to look into a new apparatus called a charge-coupled device. One year later, the first digital camera was born. But, while the invention changed the industry forever, it also caused the demise of one of the biggest photo companies in the world.

“The revolution was going to happen,” Sasson says. “I didn’t know when, and I didn’t know how effective it would be. In the end result, the fundamental business model of Kodak was undermined by the new technology.”

Sasson is credited with building the first digital camera in 1974 using a Fairchild CCD. He utilized an imaging chip to receive light from the lens and convert it into numbers. The charge pattern, he explains, was read quickly into a permanent storage place, which then happened to be a digital cassette tape.

Lady P Diary

In recent times, DEPRESSION has been the major cause of suicide. ANGER has led to premature death, LOW SELF ESTEEM has led to suicide because they do not see themselves as being able to carry on with life and feel others are better than they are. I have taken it upon myself to listen and write to the public and victims of these. If distance cannot make me listen and interact with you physically, then I hope my message would reach and touch your heart knowing that you are not in this alone and you can come out of it. Also, mastering the habits of a healthy lifestyle, peace of mind, better communication will have a great impact on your journey through life. I will be sharing my personal stories and stories of individuals but their actual names won't be mentioned. Most of these stories will be written in the first person narrative. Promising you a noteworthy read! Cheers!
