Andto think they are phasing handwriting from education...
It depends on how the nib was constructed and what kind of writing it was designed to do. A basic calligraphy set comes with 3 nibs, a standard set comes with 6, and there are lots more besides. Fonts aren't something that began in the computer age; they've been around for many, many centuries.
A signature from Beyond the Lampshade...
From the BioWare forums:
"Trust me. There is no sin more unforgivable than the contravention of already-written fanfiction."
Another favorite - "Sent from my Stone Tablet using Hammer and Pin."
Well, i noticed that a poster of OT has a sig that contains both arguably a racial slur against Russians, and apologism for it. Not that cool in my view..
You should report something like that. Racism shouldn't be allowed. Oh... oh wait, you mean mine. Well your reading comprehension must suck worse than your country's economy as I clearly explain it isn't racist. Feel free to think otherwise if you like, though, as your misconceptions are not my problem or care.
^Uh, whatever, keep being cool
Racism is ok if you have seniority and if the mods dislike the target.
For what it's worth, this probably wasn't his normal signature. This giant signature of his was meant as a huge middle finger to King George, they were probably laughing hysterically at the douchiness level of this as he did it.
Supposedly he made some comment about making sure he signed it big enough so the King could read it without using his glasses (and ensuring that he was hung first if the Revolution did not succeed).
That story came long after; only Hancock and Charles Thomson (then secretary of the Continental Congress) signed the Declaration on July 4th.
Just saw an episode of QI where Stephen Fry tells about the time he discovered John Hancock means signature in American:
Idioms are so cool
I have to think you're reading that a bit off kilter. Sorta like the powerpuff girls being 'decadent' is off kilter, but I can't put my finger on the right words to address it smartly.
Yeah - I know the doc was signed over a period of time. But somehow, I have a feeling that is what he may have been thinking. I'vw seen other examples of his writing, and it was not like that.
Moderator Action: Let's not go down this path of personal attacks and antagonism. Thanks.
