OMFG LOOK AT THE POLICE
Signatures of all our presidents
Some of these are so wonderfully exquisite, like William Henry Harrison’s, Or Gerald Ford’s.
Washington’s signature looks like a piece of art like goddamn calligraphy.
For some reason Andrew Jackson felt the need to underline his name, and I’m not gonna lie but John Quincy Adams’ signature tells me that he hadn’t ever mastered the art of writing in cursive because it looks like the handwriting of a six year old. His dad’s name, on the other hand, looks like a teenage girl wrote it.
Jefferson’s looks like he was drunk every time he had to sign something, and God knows what was going on with Taft when he signed his name. Must’ve been tripping on acid.
But notice the gradual change from elegant penmanship to mere scribbles like men need to learn how to write beautifully again.
I love how Ronald Reagan’s is the easiest to read. Like he didn’t mind taking his time to write it out neatly. :)
Peter van Uhm: Why I chose a gun
Peter van Uhm is the Netherlands’ chief of defense, but that does not mean he is pro-war. At TEDxAmsterdam he explains how his career is one shaped by a love of peace, not a desire for bloodshed — and why we need armies if we want peace.
