I'm curious about this business about eating horse.

I'm also a little appalled that I read closely enough, for enough pages, to discover that this dude's eaten horse.

I have eaten horse, in Paris, just once.
Once was enough.

A pile of jpegs? Even a pdf would've been better.

(Did you hear that, you wanker? EVEN A PDF WOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER!)

Huh, I thought that the 2007 report was already mentioned on MeFi.

Anyway, I got the 2006 report and it was pretty awesome. This guy definitely knows how to present mundane information in a beautiful way.

Last year I saw this and thought I would make a project out of keeping and organizing every receipt I got in 2008. The morning of January 1st, finding only pre-made screwdriver mix and half of a mysterious Red Baron pizza (note: I have never bought a Red Baron pizza) in my fridge, I stepped over my unconscious houseguests and went to the corner store and the Walgreens for hangover supplies. At the Walgreens I accidentally threw out the receipt from the corner store.

Long story short: the personal fortitude it would take to track the particulars of one's life in this fashion is nothing short of miraculous. Keep setting the bar, Feltron.

This is pretty fucking cool. But I'm looking for the heading: OCD MEDICATIONS TAKEN: ZERO

For anyone interested, the display font used (not the one with ligatures) for the titles is Steelfish which is a free font:

I need to add that I'm an infographic and typography freek (ie lover!).

This is one of the best modern examples I've seen of both.

I still can't get over how well Feltron keeps track of his minutiae.

Thanks, signal, for the signal.

You're very welcome rmmcclay. Glad to meet a kindred spirit.
I too would like to know what the ligature-ish font is. Whatthefont was no help.

Wait a minute, am I the only one who can't read the text? Six point glyphs and antialiasing from the 90s kinda defeats the purpose of pretty fonts, don't you think?
