[NTLK] The youngest Newton aficionado ever...

I say that based on the combining stokes I see in the writings that have crossed my path in recent memory. The newton has a hard time with cursive e's laced into otherwise printed text. This could be a "learned" symbol naturally.

Really?  I am one of those people that have terrible handwriting.  Tried
for many years to improve it.  Ironically the best I ever did was with a
fountain pen with a broad nib.  Still my teachers complained often and
loudly about my penmanship.  I always enjoyed reports as I was one of
the very few with a computer in the household at the time and was able
to type out said reports.  I think the teachers liked that aspect as well.

Personally I always wished I had good penmanship but alas I am as far
from that as the north pole is to the south pole.  I always liked
writing, espcially with a fountain pen, it just looked terrible lol.
That is the only reason I gave up.  Of course now I can type about 120
words per minute or 150+ in short bursts.  And that is not without
mistakes long term, I am certainly not a perfect typist, anything but.
However at least one can read what I write heh.
