Personally, I think bad handwriting is something in the genes, one can't really help it. Sometime ago, (in fact long time ago) I read something about (the fact that I can't remember as much means it was really a long time ago) bad handwriting being linked to one of the Freudian defense mechanisms (deprivation during some weird sexual stage). Any one has any idea about it?
Ha! I would love to trick a smart guy with this visual acuity chart once for fun, honestly. I wonder if someone has actually done it ever. More some other time, bye bye for now!
