i see idiots
If you didn't already figure out, the picture above is a screenshot of a Microsoft Word document done by someone else that made me bang my head repeatedly against the wall (and subsequently caused a small structural crack in the said wall).
Quite simply put - if you looked at the above picture and DIDN'T find anything stupid / funny / idiotic / weird / ridiculous about it, may I suggest that you press Alt+F4, shut down your computer, and take a sledgehammer and smash it to pulp. After that, you can proceed to shoot yourself - twice in the gut and once in the ass, just to make sure.
Folks, there are a shit load of things wrong with it..
The most obvious, as many of you had pointed out was the fact that the muppet should have used a table instead.
Secondly, those arrows you see are actually 'TABS'. You DON'T need to press TAB a few times to get to a particular spot in the middle of the sentence. You can easily set the TAB distance by click on the ruler at the top of the document. It is much faster and editting it wouldn't be such a bitch.
Then of course there are smaller issues like using the 'subscript' function for chemical names and the fact that 'ML' should be in smaller letters, not large ones.
Still, it is worrying that all of us have used Word at some point, and most of us still use it on a daily basis at work or in uni. Yet, there are a few simple functions which many people remain clueless about.
tapi end up proving otherwise.
obviously someone didn't pay enough attention during chemistry class. feh.
