teto85: Excellent. I prefer Vimala font myself[www.iihs.com image 723x415][www.iihs.com image 614x410]As left-handed collector and user of fountain pens I have found this the best in both handwriting and computer printing.
propasaurus: Is that a lower case c and l or a lower case d? Is that a capital S or the number 8? Is that a capital U and lower case r or a lower case w and i?
Sim Tree: I had to write a check to a company recently, I forget which one exactly, which had a capital Q or X or Z in its name. As I put pen to paper, I stopped. I realized it'd been so long, I had absolutely no idea how to write those capital letters in cursive anymore. I remembered that one of them was actually written as a numeral two, or perhaps that was the L.I finally put a print capital Q in there, instead, and wrote only the lowercase letters in cursive. The check cleared no problem. So I think I'm just going to do that from now on.

eraser8: Am I the only one who was hoping she was keeping old fashioned, yet still high-quality swears alive?
yukichigai: Is she also the founder of the Sanskrit and Telegraph Clubs?I can count on one hand the number of times I have ever needed to write anything in cursive that wasn't for school, church, or relatives so old they remember when Hawaii and Alaska weren't states yet. None of my employers have ever wanted things in cursive, and quite a few have actually complained about things written in cursive.Cursive is the Buggy Whip Manufacturer of the written word. It was developed in the era of quill pens when taking the pen from the page meant more chance of breaking your quill. It's not really relevant these days.
TinyFist: I only use cursive to fill out checks. That's it- that's all I use it for. So my checks look like they were filled out by a six year old.
WhoopAssWayne: Definitely a generational thing, but my gut prejudice is that you're uneducated if you can only write in block letters.
Charles_Nelson_Reilly: 3/10. Needs more effort.
mhd: My grandparents used to write like this:
mhd: My grandparents used to write like this:[i.imgur.com image 458x244](this is a rather legible example, it gets worse from there)That style of cursive went out of style along with blackletter printing, so in a few years people will be hard-pressed to find someone to decipher old documents.Any sufficiently stylized cursive is indistinguishable from cryptography.
