Everyone Hates Comic Sans

Font is not just something AP Comp Teachers get to be snobbish about, it's actually something lots of real people think about. And guess what? They all hate comic sans too. Maybe we're all just font snobs and that's okay. In fact, you should be too! (bandwagon fallacy)

    Great stress relief for AP Comp. Maybe some extra credit for a high score?

  4. How high of a score are we talking?

  5. Let's just say I got a score of 96.

    And it's kind of a huge deal.
