I sign my signature only on papers where it specifically says "sign here" or "student signature here".

I usually sign all my papers because I have to. It will probably become a state law soon anyway because there are a whole bunch of new teaching laws coming out lately and it isn't fair on the teachers.

    My signature irl isn't too bad, though not very consistent.

      Lemnie Roland? xD Best guess.
      I always mess up my last name when I'm signing, never my first really

      My signature is lazy and the only thing you can make out of is it the 'T' at the beginning of it. It used to be a little cleaner but it just got sloppy and then stuck that way whoops.

        Messy signature is an important key trait to be a doctor in the future, so keep at it =D


        In other news... why are older games still so pricy (like, PSP games not talking rare collectible NES games). I just checked Persona 3 Portable and it's still 30 dollars... I thought that after so many years by now it should be 19.99 finally... but nope. Sigh.

        Psh. The closest I am going to get to being a doctor is playing the Trauma Center games.

        I think it depends on the popularity of the game and such? I'm not sure but it seems to be a case by case basis. I mean ... I still see some games such as Super Smash Brothers Brawl at $40 still at a game store. Seems it also depends on which game store you go to and whether it is used or not.

        My signature is superlazy XD It's just a W with some flourishes around.

        My signature is non-existent tbh. It's just my name written really quickly and really messy. I don't know if that's even acceptable as a signature or not.

            I agree, I just saw Fable 3 for $50. Terrible in comparison with its predecessors but it still cost $120 for almost 12 months in Australia. I feel ripped off.

              ^$120 for a video game? Holy crap. At MOST games cost $50-$70 here.

              That's in Australian Dollars, which makes it even worse, last I checked. Probably has to do with the extra editing Australian laws require of video games.

              Also, my signature is inconsistent and sloppy. Almost never the same twice anymore.

                Even still, the Australian and American dollar are pretty much the some amount right now. And whats with this new law thing? Are they forcing you to own video games or something? xD

                    My signature as well as all my handwriting in general if horrible. I'm arguably the best at typing essays and doing stuff like posting on forums where I can think and then reply rather than sort of being forced to think up a response on the spot. I'm type fairly fast but I write slow and I don't even hold the pencil properly because, the stubborn child I was, refused to learn how to use it properly and did it my own way.

                    Also, cute stuff. Such a god damn sucker for them. There's a limit though to how much of it I can take before it becomes cringe-worthy though.

                    Edit: Aw, a bit late on this topic aren't I? ****.

                      I think it was the most expensive video game in Australia at the time, for some unknown reason. But lately it's been relatively good, special edition pre-orders for Assassins Creed 3 are between $70 - $90 for the special editions. Pokemon B2W2 are $60 everywhere as well.

                      And yeah it's really expensive in Australia, it makes you value money a little more I think however.

                        Everything is ridicilously overpriced in Australia compared to everywhere else. Shoes, clothes, games, even cars ahah. It's the most deperesing thing. I buy most things from eBay instead.

                          But why? It doesn't make any sense to me why things are so overpriced in one country but not another.

                            Just the market I guess. Like videogames and electronics are always expensive in Japan.

                            Speaking of Japan, I just bought some figures and things from there @[email protected]

                            Shipping was like 35 quid though @[email protected] expensive!

                            But why? It doesn't make any sense to me why things are so overpriced in one country but not another.
                            Australia has higher wages than places like America where people get most of their payment from tips. We're mostly isolated from the rest of the world too, so shipping to get things here from China, America, etc, is far more expensive so stores ask for more money so they can still make profit. Plus our population is barely over 20 million so ehh.

                              I started to think about the shipping after I posted. And I always pictured Australia having more people, dunno why.
