I have no data to back up this observation, but it's something I have noticed consistently in research talks and teaching material: People from the theoretical CS community seem to use Comic Sans a lot, a font-face that emulates the look and feel of hand-drawn fonts in comic books. Is this merely a convention or is there a deeper reason behind it?
EDIT1: Since a couple of users requested examples, here's what I came up with in a 5-minute search:
- Probabilistic model checking in practice
- Symbolisches model checking
- A complexity measure on Büchi automata
- Fundamentals of programming languages
- Formal modeling methods
EDIT2: The point of this question is not to collect opinions, but to find out reasons why TCS people use Comic Sans (and the answers so far already did an excellent job in this matter).
