> I have a similar anecdote: I wasn't good at handwriting and always claimed I wouldn't need to. Now I don't need to, indeed, except for exams. But I actually have a hard time with caligraphy and that's a shame.

Your anecdote is irrelevant because there is no _understanding_ to be gained by handwriting as opposed to typing.

I really can't be bothered with this conversation, sorry.

Writing is geometric and calculation is pretty much mechanic.
