Unique Characters

Ever notice how similar a lot of the "English" alphabet's characters look? The guy who put this together must have really phoned it in that day.

He really could only come up with these:
ABCDEFGHIJK_MNOPQRSTUV_XY_
and then just flipped a few around a bit to get up to 26:

J L
M W
S Z

And it isn't just those three, a lot of the original list look eerily similar to each other as well, but I guess we'll count them:

B R
E F
H K
M N
O Q
U V
T Y
Y X

but then he needed to come up with 10 more numbers... well none of those are unique!


0 O
1 I
2 Z
3 E
4 P
5 S
6 G
7 L
8 B
9 P

So in the end, if you are looking for unique characters that you can use, that will not be confused with any other characters, you're only left with:

A

well that isn't very many...

Iowa at Michigan State

Iowa played Michigan State last night in East Lansing, Michigan. I am not a sports writer, so I will not attempt it here, but it was one of the best games of football that I have ever watched. A total of three field goals through three quarters of play, two goal line stands from under five yards out, and a last minute drive from behind by the Hawkeyes.


There were records broken on both sides.
