Poll: Should competitive handwriting be a sport?
  • 9.2% - Yes! Everything should be a sport! Sports are great! 47
  • 22.7% - I guess, if people care enough about it to make it one. 116
  • 68.1% - No. Sports need to be more athletic than that. 348

Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

Everything is a game! We just seem to mostly play the game of: "This is not a game, this is serious..." We are all either playing the zero or non-zero sum game. Competing. Even in grade school: Whose handwriting is better, more legible. There is actually a World Handwriting Contest. And WHAC rules for the competition. The NHA is active in all this. Sound familiar? National Handwriting Association. Not as familiar at the WAC or NHL. But close, for those who realize the history and importance of penmanship and such names as William Oland Bourne or Anaya Ellick. Remember, it trumps the sport of fencing: "The pen is mightier than the sword."

Only full contact competition. And no padding or helmets!

Thanks to up-to-the-minute tracking, I don't track my package so much as stalk it.

When I finish writing something, it looks as if multiple people have written it. Does that mean I have multiple personalities or just too creative to go the norm?

No way, I don't need another activity I have no chance of winning.

Everyone is treating this like its a joke. Allow me to remind you of competitive gaming.
