    Politicians are the greatest recyclers. Every lection they recycle the same promises.

    For instance: The Pt. Augusta Darwin railway line has ben promised everye lection since I was old enough to remember. Then, in 2004 we got it. That was after 50 years or more of promising it.

    “Unrecycle”?

    Is that kinda like putting “deconstructed cuisine” back together again so it becomes edible common-sense food again?

    Take that, Top Chef.

    Trash bin #8 became self-aware that summer, thus paving the way for Skynet and Groundnet, the central control network for the terrifying little machines known as Recyclinators.

    @Pete 0505 The Typesetting Computer’s “justifying” program has malfunctioned.

    “Justification” of a line occurs, when the computer reduces or adds “white space” between words and even letters, to make the line fit the space available.

    I worked on those type of computers for 20 years, when they went from hot metal. (Linotypes etc)

    @Marum 513:

    Thx for splaining.

    But how do you account for the 3rd line under the photo where it says “Zhejiang, China”? Look at the letter “i” in “China”.
    It’s leaning to the right like a famous tower in Italy!

    (At least it is on MY smartphone….)

  34. Marum | 5:46 am |  Vote: Add rating 6  Subtract rating 0  

    @ Pete 0531. Zhejiang, China.

    If you notice Zhejiang is in italics as are Chi in China. The “n” and “a” are in the normal sans serif font such as Megaron or Chelmsford.

    With computers, you can “italisize” any font, by dialling in the degrees of slant you require. That is not a “true” italic font, but it will normally do.

    @Pete: On my screen it looks like the text suddenly went from italic to normal text for the last 2 letters. Makes for a nice optical illusion at the “i”.

    Speaking of Italy.

    Q. How do they separate the men from the boys in Italy?

    A. With a crowbar.

    @DnT 0549 Your explanation was much more succinct.

    Forgive m for being such a pedantic wordy old $h1t. But, in my defence, I plead guilty of being an engineer.

    @Marum | 5:57 am: No worries, mate. I didn’t know that about “dialling in” degrees of slant. I wonder if the option is hidden somewhere in the computer’s OS, like so many other functions I don’t know about..

    @Marum: Yes, I’ve tried HTML tags for effect. What works depends on which version of HTML the site uses. I can never get a small print command that works, though.
    Italics is fine, but a way to vary the tilt angle would be fun.
