This seems like it would make a great Story.

How would it go?

Not to be a complainy-pants but why haven't people yet realized that it's the 21st century and that YES, we can scan things at higher than 72 DPI?

I think I went blind trying to read that ad copy.

Higher DPI! Please! There's no excuse for less than 300 these days.

yes, please, thank you. i have crappy vision to *begin* with, and this just doesn't help any at all.

I'm sorry, I can't even read the copy on my screen.

control(+)the plus sign will enlarge your page view. (if you have the separate numbers keypad anyway).

i DID get the page large enough to see the words. they were still ant-print tiny at 16 enlargements. the original copy of the ad must have been hell to read!

edit to give the correct keyboard command...because i are the goofbrain today.

you're welcome! it really helps me be able to read most webpages... dibetes that went untreated for at least a decade has lead to some really ugly eye problems, plus a weirdness on the left eye, and my vision is going.

i have glasses for distance vision, ones for computer-distance use, and for things closer than *that*, i take my glasses off entirely. and sometimes? i just take the glasses off and experience life as a blur. and it doesn't bother me to do that, LOL!!

To be clear, I was not the scanner of the AD. It came from Flickr. Someone else scanned it.

I am sorry its difficult to read. I was not the one who scanned it. It came from Flickr.

if you aren't the one who scanned it, then it is NOT your fault.

ok? *hugs*

I love this ad.

What, you don't have a machine gun turret in your kitchen?

*click-click* "I hope you prewashed this time!"

We had a Norge refrigerator for a while when I was a kid. That machine gun turret couldn't have been much noisier.
