    Why do all the forms I’m getting to read and sign from the Navy appear to have been typed on an electric typewriter in 1983.

    It’s that vintage-retro look and feel. They probably were.

    Just consider the artistry and skill it required to faithfully replicate the 1983 vintage look and feel on these forms. ;)

    There's a scene in Fast Times at Ridgemont High where Mr. Hand gives out a mimeographed class schedule & the whole class holds it up to their noses to smell it!

    My son and I saw a recommendation to use Internet Explorer! And when we use Firefox or Chrome, they tell us that we're entering an unsafe website.

    Feel the sense of all that history behind each form?

    (Now I gotta go look up if John Paul Jones ever complained about all the paperwork he had to fill out)

    @Devil Doc: I tried to use this to sign forms but all it did was scratch the screen of my laptop!
