I hate cursive. It serves no purpose. Even if you know it, you can’t read it because everybody writes it differently. Other than a signature (which is mostly illegible anyway) there is no reason for it.
@CaptainCrunchyCvnt, it was designed for quills because they function better without having to lift the writing instrument. Even fountain pens to a degree worked better with cursive. Once the ballpoint became common cursive wasn't as necessary
@CaptainCrunchyCvnt, I was taught it, and it hasn’t helped me, but I did use it last year when I had to transcribe some Spanish docs from the 1500s. So it has limited uses, but not enough to be taught outside of college
@CaptainCrunchyCvnt, you mean including a signature.
@CaptainCrunchyCvnt, I write in cursive most of the time. It is a mix of cursive and non cursive. And im 20. Its just easier to write in cursive for me idk why. I used to hate it to
@Basil Fawlty, you are the worst type of person. Pick cursive or regular. Don't care which one. Just pick
@CaptainCrunchyCvnt, it's so much faster to write in cursive. I used it for notes through college and for personal notes for myself. If you have to keep pace with speaking it's hard not to write in partial cursive anyway.
@satan of the north, its hard being this bad
@Basil Fawlty, being bad is normally really easy, for me anyway
@CaptainCrunchyCvnt, It’s writing with built in encryption.
@Tyrellious, In the UK, we don’t call it cursive. We just call it ‘writing’ because that’s what we’re taught from day 1.
@SaintBeardMan, also the fact that THEY ARE the ones who stopped teaching it to millenials
I really like cursive though :(
@Bowie Stars, calligraphy in general is a good way to see if a person is rounded out. There's patterns in the writings.
My older brother and I were taught to write cursive ( we're 30 &31 ) but our younger brother who is 23 wasn't taught he has had a tough time with not having a "signature" for places of employment and state documents ( drivers license) still requiring a" printed name" and a "signature". We tried to teach him to sign his initials in cursive at the least and they don't even look like real letters. So unfortunately we still sort of need it
To be fair it is easier to learn young and computers weren't around when they where young
Isn’t cursive learnt in schools anyway? Or has it changed since I went to school
@Kim Jongin, I think they got rid of it
@Kim Jongin, it's changed. I learned in the mid 90s, my brother learned in late 90s along with keyboard typing, and by the time my cousin got to that grade level in early 00s it was entirely replaced by keyboarding. Kids no longer know how to write a proper signature on their license!
@Kim Jongin, i learned it in 3rd grade then I think when I went to 4th they stopped teaching it.
Cursive has (had) been around several Centuries... Lap tops, I am guessing not as long.
