Link roundup

1. "this painting by Jean-Léon Jérôme is called 'Truth Coming Out of Her Well to Shame Mankind' and it rules so hard" (NSFW)

2. "The feds are killing off Clearview, the new highway sign font"
But, it turns out, later research has not backed up this initial belief. It turns out that all that research suggesting the new font might be more legible was more due to the fact that older, worn signs were being replaced with nice, fresh, clean signs which were, naturally, more legible.

Clearview also made legibility worse
3. "Photos of Women and Giant-Ass Mainframe Computers from the 1960s"
