    The good thing is, if I hit ctrl+I, SPF actually does what I want.

    So many of us here are obsessive by nature, so I don't think you need a psychiatrist just yet.

They were displaying the weather (an uncharacteristic 53 degrees in February!) and all I could think was "Why would they switch to a sans-serif font for headings?"

    Another:

    I had steak on Friday with my family. It was delicious. Juicy, succulent, and very tender. It would have been even more enjoyable if I had been thinking about it. Instead, I was speculating on why they chose a light tan and red for their color scheme.
    You sound perfectly normal to me!

    Well, I suppose you aren't in complete denial Yo-Yo that you are having "obsessive" thoughts so there is some hope.

    Like Maleika mentioned you to have to have a certain amount of obsession with web design. Though you do have to keep it in check; so not to tip the balance, i.e. become an fully 'out of control' overly obsessive or you'll grind yourself into the floor far too easily.

    Assuming one as being 'perfectly normal' is usually not a good sign though - and especially not for around here.

    I just keep this motto in mind:

    Several great men have been dismissed as insane before.
    Although usually that applies to cliche bad guys...

    Hello, I want to agree some posts above. Itís seems like you are trying to find quarrel in a straw. It is good to know about specific characteristic of colors. Sometimes, our tastes donít match. Everyone has their own opinion. So, they have chosen that combination of colors.

    Well, since this post was mentioned in a thread that I just saw today, I'll chime in.

    I definitely have the same thoughts. I loved that XKCD comic when I saw it because it is so true. I'll make comments about some weird design thing and people just give me weird looks.

    Like the other day we were going to lunch. They are doing some construction around us and rebuilding the sidewalk on the four corners of an intersection. I was complaining because they didn't match. One had a pale brick color inlaid in big chunks into normal concrete. Another had laid dark gray (not concrete color) bricks in a herringbone pattern. Why didn't they make them match if they were rebuilding them all at once!?

    One person laughed and the others just kind of stared at me. =p

    Right? I'll be with a friend and I'll be like, "My goodness. Why did that yoga store choose a dark red and black? Terrible design principles." And she'll be like, "Um...sure?"

    Lol.
