  1. Look, I’d be thrilled to get Even One arrow on sketches made by newly minted engineers showing where goddamn grid/project/local/even magnetic North is on the schweißig plan!

    They all can do matrix algebra and use finite element software but don’t know how to sketch a merdique plan!

  2. lala: Sure, in printed textbooks.
    However, I have yet to see a human embolden letters when writing by hand. Sadly, the widespread use of boldface in books has the downside that students now just omit arrow (and obviously do not/cannot denote boldface when they write by hand), so as a result they don’t distinguish vectors from scalars in their work, which is a very, very, VERY bad idea.
