Children and some adults can`t use a pen or pencil.

Recommended Posts

An interesting one this, after the initial 'shock horror' reaction think about this:

As technology has advanced the skills needed to survive at that point in time change. 20000 years ago the ability to hunt, and find wild foods were essential, now days how many people know how to hunt, skin and dress an animal. As increasingly complex electronic devices embed them selves will writing go the same way. Equally watch a group of teenagers texting or using their mobiles, they can write quicker than I can using a pen and paper. So I suspect it's just evolution of homo sapiens. I hardly ever use pen and paper at work, everything is electronic. If I couldn't write I would survive as long as I can use a keyboard and mouse, but if I wasn't computer literate I would be out of a job

Yeah, this can be our future that this skill will be vanished at all. The technologies will create some new things that help to make it instead of people. Is it good or bad? I think that it will be normal. May be we will have new art - writing with pen. A agree with Mike that this is evolution of homo sapiens. The world is changing so quickly, a lot of profession is vanished. This is life, people born and died. It is the same about skills. Our time is required to learn how to study, how to make it faster - this is reality of new generations. All routines will be made by robots, so we will have free time to create something extremely new.

Have to admit my handwriting has gone to hell! i have to keep up a pretense though as we still get adult handwritten exam sheets here that also need handwritten correction and comments. And I have to be able to fill and sign forms. Happy day from sicky land - actually feeling a bit better today. The the sandpaper nose combined with mucus to win prizes for is gross. So, a max of 37c here toda. What can you say in a nursery where everything remotely controversial gets deleted. Whooppee it's been hot - no merde!

Having been around for some time I have always been disappointed with my hand writing. Do it carefully it is a mess. Try and let it flow it is an unstylish mess. Why can some people write (and draw) nicely and others (me) produce trash. Thank goodness for a key board.

@Snipper I have the same issue, I used to be a complete mess with handwriting as a kid, but slowly got better, to the point where my writing was eligible, but after years of constantly only using a keyboard, my writing is now back to a mess, to the point where when I fill out forms and send them off in the post, they get sent back to me asking for corrections!

It's your right brain! I'll explain later - doglet needs excursion, I'm sick and he doesn't get it - why would he?
