Cursive

Ohio's senate passes a bill to teach it to kids again.

A FB friend's kid just passed their driver's test and was told to sign their name in cursive on their license, and they had no idea how.

Ohio stopped teaching it a bit ago.

Somewhere there's a bunch of monks who would beat the shit out of you.

We could, but the instructions are in cursive, so nobody under 25 can read them.

I think it's a shame kids are not learning cursive. That said: I almost cannot write it myself, having lost the habit in college (engineering classes REQUIRE you to use non-cursive. I would have said "print" which is what we called it but now that means something else)

I believe the act of writing script changes the way one forms thoughts.
Fuuuuuuck YOU.

I believe using script is dumb and terrible and no one should be wasting their time writing when they can type instead. Much less dictate.
