Well, when I go to https://imgflip.com/memegenera..., there are three font choices: Impact, Arial , and Comic Sans. At http://memegenerator.net/ it looks like Impact is the only option. Being the default choice at these sites, I suspect Impact gets used the most by far. I think I have never seen Comic Sans used.

it seems like whenever someone says "Here comes the modding down and a wreaking of my karma, in three.... two..... One...." they get modded *up*.
  Anyone else notice that? Maybe it's just confirmation bias on my part, but I don't think so. Well, just in case, I'm prepared to be modded down in three, two, one....

+ - Morse code test requirement to be reinstated for Amateur Radio License-> 1

Submitted by H0ek
H0ek (86256) writes "One of the standards of excellence required to possess an Amateur Radio License was to pass a test of Morse Code sending and receiving capabilities. At the beginning of 1991 this requirement was removed for Technician Class licenses, and finally in 2007 this requirement was removed for General and Amateur Extra Classes. This will now be reversed and all new applicants will be required to submit to the Morse Code test again. Also, all previous no-code licensees will have a specific length of time to renew their license with the new code test requirements. This can either been seen as restoring a badge of honor to the venerable amateur radio license system, or the death knell for a crotchety old system fading away in a world of community-wide wifi and mobile communications."
