I'm a firm believer that bad handwriting is a sign of intelligence. That's why mine is absolutely horrific.

Hang on... doctors and scientists are both stereotyped as having terrible handwriting, sometimes engineers as well.
Lawyers are expected to have very good handwriting. (apologies to any actual lawyers, but some of your colleagues are terrible people.)
I have terrible handwriting and a GPA higher than 98% of my graduating class.

You may be on to something here.

Or... man, I'unno. They called it something like disgraphia? My handwriting is quite terrible, yes, but I also can't draw a straight line with a ruler. When I got officially qual'd for learning disabled in writing/spelling way back when they slapped me with that, too. What the mind sees and tells the hands to do don't translate quite right, even after quite excessive attempts at repetition and practice.

Though as stated once, long-ish ago, somewhere, it makes telling if someone's copying my signature easy. If it's the same twice in a row, it's a forgery :P

Dysgraphia is seeing letters in funny manners, backward and upside down and whatnot. It's what most people think of when they think "dyslexia".

I always thought my bad handwriting was the result of my multinational upbringing, but this puts things in a whole different light.

Remember, knowledge is power. The power to make other people feel stupid.

Definitely not that, then. No telling, really. Tests and stuff happened like, fifteen, sixteen years ago? My memory's good, sometimes, but not quite that good :P

Suffice it to say there was actually some sort of excuse the school took as to how hard it was to read my written stuff, that kept me from failing a few classes back in lower education.

College was much nicer. They wanted most things typed anyway, heh.

I never had handwriting problems, but I'm the same way.  I just scribble anymore.  The only consistency is the number of distinguishable humps somewhere in the scribble.

I am like that as well.

And taking into consideration what Truean has told us about the signature defense.....I could get out of anything.

Anyway, I'm happy because my roommate is off being terrorized in the forest instead of being here for the whole weekend. I'd post dancing gifs but I don't have any.

In the days when Sussman was a novice, Minsky once came to him as he sat hacking at the PDP-6.
“What are you doing?”, asked Minsky. “I am training a randomly wired neural net to play Tic-Tac-Toe” Sussman replied. “Why is the net wired randomly?”, asked Minsky. “I do not want it to have any preconceptions of how to play”, Sussman said.
Minsky then shut his eyes. “Why do you close your eyes?”, Sussman asked his teacher.
“So that the room will be empty.”
At that moment, Sussman was enlightened.

Was that actually a good game?  I was really hyped for that one when it was in development, but never got my hands on it after it was released.
