    I would love to learn to use my left hand to write as well as my right one, I wonder how long it would take...
     
  8. How come they skipped cuneiform and all the really ancient writing forms?

    Other than that, there's some blingin' ass calligraphy there. Good find.

    No one started graffiti/vandilism. This started as soon as monkeys turned to men and we realized we can inscribe names/messages/whatever on our surroundings and have others see, and be influenced by.

    Have you ever seen the inside of a caveman's cave? Do you think they were Latin?
