I have just attempted to make my first lemon drizzle cake. I really hope it turns out ok because my nanna makes a freaking epic lemon drizzle cake and I want to be able to say that it's in my genetics or something that I can also make a lemon drizzle cake.

What a lovely phrase "lemon drizzle".

What do you call ideas passed down through generations? memes? learning?

Romdom Thought.
More like a Thought fell down The Stairs.

I sometimes feel invisible.
Not like it's a SuperPower.

My experience may be a very common experience.
Most people are whizzing around with all of their Valences Full.

In an attempt to make me feel better, a man once told me,
"You are a Noble. You only react with others of your own kind."

It is a funny way to look at things.
Gold cold welds to its self.

Some people crash into one another and as quickly as any chemical reaction,
where one stops and the other begins no longer has any meaning.

What a nice little Fairy Tale.

Can anyone tell me why my page tab fonts look like a captcha? Everything is up to date, nothing in cache, tried explorer, chrome, and firefox. The webpage tech support says they don't see the same thing. Can someone please tell me if they see the same thing in this screen shot (captcha) or proper times new roman, same as the rest of the page. I would appreciate it. The Rs and As are off their rocker. The off set letters also spell RAAR RAAAR RAA. Creepy Pol.

I'd appreciate any advice. Does it make it difficult for my creepy crawly friends to see, like a captcha?

Thanks ST.

Whizbang, I don't know, how do I check? I find it odd that it's only the R and A, and only in the page title tabs. The RAAR RAAAR RAA is also a lil creepy. Wouldn't zoom and accessibility settings have more consistency through the page? I've checked on three different computers. Thank you.

Well, if it is three different computers, then I don't know.

Are you using VPN or anything? It just seems like something is trying to draw the letters between two font sizes, and doing it poorly.

can reproduce in IE 10 with zoom 150% (just use ctrl-mousewheel)
looks like a rounding error when zooming the font.

It's definitely zoom.

I have the same issue on Chrome at 150% zoom. Press Ctrl-0 on that page and watch the text get smaller, but fixed-er.

Zoom at 100%-125% (computer and browser) shows the proper font. Spot on! Thanks all y'all. I thought my laptop was at 100% . I checked 2 other computers at 150%... However, it's still weird. why just two letters? If my target market (older mariners, for the most part) view it at 150%, it's gonna look like shite. I brought this to the attention of the hosting company. The other text doesn't have any issues at higher magnification. Why just the page titles? How do titles rank in SEO? This is gonna bug. I must know why!!! Thanks again!

Cat pours beer for ST, Whizbang, speising, and roband. Cheers!

I do loath people who treat other with reckless abandon, in an invasive criminal manipulative fashion, with no regard for the well being of others. That ignorant sense of entitlement makes me sick to my stomach, and I twitch at the sight of it. Don't take it personal, unless it applies to you. Then, I don't give a fuck what you think.

Do you refer to Star Wars itself (or one of the VI episodes in particular), or to the LEGO movie*, or to the Lego Star Wars short films made for Cartoon Network and/or the Disney Channel?

* - which I haven't seen, but I think there are some Star Wars characters in it?
