What the fuck is wrong with large things? I think someone is just trying to compensate.

Lol. If I were good with computers, I would be able to use this script. I am pretty annoyed with Google's new font.

You have to download greasmonkey first. It's an application for firefox. I'm pretty sure it's compatible with the new version that was released. I just downloaded the updated one, gonna test it out now :D

@MatthewT please open this directory C:\Windows\System32 and delete everything you can, that is if you have windows, if you have a mac please throw your computer off the nearest building. I ensure you my actions are based on your IQ.
