Fantastic work. These look great and accentuate the readability of already-great work.

I was tempted to cut the tractor ride line entirely. I think it reads okay now, but there's no way to make it more legible without abandoning the font or going to two pages. And I really want to keep this at one page.

Why would you cut out the tractor ride?

Just for legibility issues. If folks can read it fine it stays.

I love it, and I love the tractor ride line because I've totally done that.

I've done all those things on the same day, in fact.

That one's hard to read on my phone, but I want a full sized poster of it exactly as is for my new tiny chamber of existential despair that I reside in. On the bright side I have wifi access because I know the guys that run a business downstairs.

On the down side... best not to dwell on it.

I wanted it to be hard to read, but I can experiment with some slightly less awful fonts if folks want.

I like it. Including the work it takes to read it.

For my part I like it as it is.
