    I hate pdfs. Why can't everyone just use html? That would allow for pictures and links. I hate that I can't edit pdfs, especially cut and paste. I was writing a paper once, and I wanted to quote a study in pdf format and I couldn't use cut. That really womped.

    I also know that pdfs make life much more difficult for investigative reporters. They can't do diddly squat with a whole bunch of reports in pdf 'cuz they're too big not to use an application, but their apps can't use pdfs. My friend's dad was asking me about this, and I didn't know what to tell him besides how much pdfs really suck.
