If you have a medic/ support type dooder, I can fill that role 4 yah.

gently caress yea. A specialist. You got a drone buddy that can fly through danger and shoot heals and hack stuff. Solid role to keep others on their feet and out of danger. Still good with guns, as much as any really when no char can aim in xcom.

E:lol, you also came with sunglasses. This game loves chill

I know a few people who have done the all caps strategy for bad handwriting, and they all have developed uniquely illegible and lovely all caps styles.

My daughter's mum is younger than me and has amazing writing without cursive.
But I've seen that argument before and it's so bad. Cursive is just lazily writing without picking up the pen, promoting it as advanced because it's curvy doesn't help. It's not friggin calligraphy.
Calligraphy is dope though.

Hey, everyone, I haven't played XCOM2 in a long time. I am rather bad, but if anyone requests, I'll add you in my playthrough and try to keep you alive(you might have to be sacrificed to help the alien war).

Add me if there's room in the roster, I wanna do my part!

If someone does that to you, interrupt them to ask how their latin is, and if it's not perfect tell them it's the death of education.

Not posting in proto-hieroglyphs I see, death of education. hawhawhawhaw

this is a guess based on 0 research but I always assumed cursive was prominent because of the prevalence of fountain pens and quills and poo poo.


thank you so much to nesamdoom for the scurry fall sig!

Same. I figured it was developed to minimize the need for blotting. Once the ballpoint pen was invented and widespread, it pretty much relegated cursive to a fanciful anachronism.

My penmanship, of all sorts, used to be lovely and then I was attacked by arthritis' in a darkened alley one night and now I can barely write legibly, even to my own eyes lol
I started using all cap when I started science classes, since it was easier to read notes/pre-lab write-ups at a glance. I used cursive for all my GA classes because it made note-taking during lectures much faster.

I see through the cursive lies

I can print legibly or not depending on my mood ie if I feel like being legible. Printing looks better. Rests your eyes more

i haven't written in cursive in like 20 years, but i'm pretty sure i could fake it if i had to. can anyone really tell the difference between a cursive a, s, or n anyway?

RavenousScoot

ironically capitals are what I wouldn't remember how to write if I tried to write in cursive


THANK YOU NESAM :^))

RIP Charlie. The critters love to trash my waterlily, and one of them bit my floating thermometer the other night.

Cursive was originally developed for yes, less blotting, but also, it was faster than block writing. Now that we type more than anything, other than signatures, it isn't as necessary a skill for note taking now. It's also why we don't use shorthand anymore.

I'm "learned shorthand, a virtually useless skill these days, in school" years old now. gently caress.

hi yob

on the block vs cursive thing - when i was young I switched states and got bumped up a year.

that was when we were being taught to write in block and then coming to the new state they demanded cursive and had moved on from it and so gave me lots of poo poo about my hand writing

anyway I ended up with god awful handwriting but feel vindicated cause I would fire back at the teacher's complaining that we'd all be using computers anyway pretty soon.

i'd also tell them that most doctors had atrocious hand writing (yes I was a bit of a little poo poo, how did you know?)
