When He Says, ‘I’m A Human Being,’ I Tear Up, Too
"“It's really humiliating to be shaking a cup 24 hours a day and people just look at you like you some kind of little bum. ... I have had people that walk past me and say, 'Get a job, bum!' And I say, 'Wait a minute — I'm not a bum, I'm a human being.'"" - Son of Groucho from Bookmarklet

"A British record sum of £518,000 including taxes and fees has been paid for a personalised registration at auction. The plate '25 O' was sold at a three-day DVLA event in Cardiff marking the 25th anniversary of the Personalised Registrations sales. The buyer, John Collins, owns Talacrest, a dealer in rare classic Ferraris and just hours after paying £130,320 for the registration '250 L' he spent almost five times as much on '25 O'. Both registrations are already destined for classic Ferraris; '25 O' will be worn by a 250 SWB once owned by Eric Clapton, while '250 L' will go on to a 1964 Ferrari Lusso. Moments after his success, Mr Collins said: "I was just determined to own them, it was just a case of how much I was going to have to pay for the privilege." Asked just how much he was prepared to pay for 25 O, Mr Collins replied: "I'm not too sure, it could possibly have been the first £1 million personalised registration!"

BBC NEWS | Magazine | The slow death of handwriting -
"Christmas cards, shopping lists and what else? The occasions in which we write by hand are fewer and fewer, says Neil Hallows. So is the ancient art form of handwriting dying out? A century from now, our handwriting may only be legible to experts. For some, that is already the case. But writer Kitty Burns Florey says the art of handwriting is declining so fast that ordinary, joined-up script may become as hard to read as a medieval manuscript. "When your great-great-grandchildren find that letter of yours in the attic, they'll have to take it to a specialist, an old guy at the library who would decipher the strange symbols for them," says Ms Florey, author of the newly-published Script and Scribble: The Rise and Fall of Handwriting." - Son of Groucho from Bookmarklet
What's yours like? Mine is appalling... - Son of Groucho
Every so often I take the time to write notes down at work in cursive, taking care with everything I write but I tend to find that it doesn't take long before the legibility starts going downhill quickly as the speed of note-taking increases. My standard handwriting is probably only readable by me and not all the time even then. - Mark H
Mine's pretty awful but it's always been that way. I'm old enough to have had penmanship classes in grammar school and I never got an "excellent" in it. But I've been reading a lot of historical correspondence from the '20s when people wrote a lot more often and some people had terrible handwriting then, too. I've actually been wishing I had $ to hire an expert to help me read some of... more... - Spidra Webster
My handwriting is so so terrible. It used to be beautiful. I blame 9 years of note taking in university. :( - Jenny H. from Android
Me too! Nine years! I thought my seven years was excessive! - Son of Groucho
I think mine is nice. I make sure I write by hand everyday. My kids do have trouble reading it at times. I'm trying to teach them cursive, but it's daunting. - Anika
Mine is awful. - Walt Crawford
I've just asked Pete to buy me a writing book for Christmas as I need to improve my handwriting! - Marina's Godmother :-)
I love writing by hand on all the things. Journals, letters, cards. Notes for work projects. - Corinne L
