    Looks like my messy handwriting has served the same purpose without me even knowing about this brain hack.

    Interesting, I tend to find I skim a lot of what I read and not retain as much as I probably could, will have a look at the Chrome plugin, even though its a Chrome plugin lol..

    Remind me to change my eyes and brain back to how they were when I was a student. Or rather, forgive me if I don't assume that the results of a single-point study imply the same "breaking of rules" vs memorability curve among the wide range of people that can be found outside the college environment.

    It's an interesting concept but would be a bit of work to put into practice. It's not like I can write like that and still read it.

    Yeah, but it's a font - it's not like you can write in Times New Roman either.

    It looks like a defective printer to me, a regular font with missing parts.
