"... June 1944. Allied Forces stand on the brink: a million soldiers are secretly assembled on the south coast of Britain, poised to invade Nazi-occupied Europe. One man stands in their way: Winston Churchill. Fearful of repeating, on his disastrous command, the mass slaughter of 1915, when over 500,000 soldiers were killed on the beaches of Gallipoli. Exhausted by years of war and plagued by depression, Churchill is a shadow of the hero who has resisted Hitler’s Blitzkrieg.

A better announcement card design could have made for a very different Academy Awards show — not to mention a much less embarrassing Miss Universe show for Steve Harvey back in 2015. But the implications of bad typography don't end there: poorly designed ballots in the 2000 presidential election arguably could have swayed the outcome, and illegible type on medicine bottles could be causing nearly 500,000 cases of drug misuse per year in the U.S..."

Games on the Atari came in many shapes and sizes like Combat, Berzerk, Yars' Revenge, Demon Attack and QBert. Atari games are highly collectible today and many can be quite rare like Actionauts and SwordQuest Waterworld.

"We've seen kiss cams — but how do they work? Here's a peek behind the scenes.
It's easy to be captivated by the occasional kiss cam fail or kiss cam prank. But behind the humor of kiss cam compilations is the hard work of the people who make it happen. Ever wonder if the kiss cam challenge is real, or fake? This is how it happens..."

"This is our parody of the BBC Live Interview interrupted by his kids. Many people assumed the woman in the video was his nanny, yet it is his wife. Why? Is it because she is of a different race? Because she was Asian/Korean? We explore our conscious and unconscious biases and assumptions on who is family..."
