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.
CeroX: I was going to ask if the grandparents were German... It looks rather nazi... just sayin...
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.
