Well I think you answered your own question! But I can still usually read his writing.

Well I meant other instances really, I know he likes to doodle his signature, is it possible to know who has the best handwriting in the band?

He's got a alcoholic'handwriting. That's typical. My godfather, a doctor who were alcoholic, wrote me letters like that.

Right, because being an alcoholic totally changes your handwriting.



They all have shitty handwriting. At least it gives us a challenge to decipher it.

yeah... it's a kind of "nervous" handwriting, with big letters and scrawls... he writes well, his handwriting is not ugly, it's the style of it which is intriguing.
i don't mind if you don't believe me but that's what i think from my experience! sorry...

It's not really a matter of believing here.. you're linking two completely separate things(handwriting and alcoholism) together and claim there's a direct connection between them. I have never heard of it so I'd like to hear some proof on it.
As far as I know handwriting has 100% nothing to do with alcoholism or not. it's something you develop as a child and some people have neat writing, some don't. It's never exactly been researched how handwriting is determined, but it's got nothing to do with alcoholism or whatever drug abuse.

It's imaginative

But what is written at the bottom of the plate?

well i don't have proof except my Godfather himself who apologized for his alcoholic handwriting in the letters he wrote to me at the time... I can tell you it were very very similar to Bono's.
i think there's still a connection between our psychic state of mind and the handwriting which is resulting.

I'd say it's just a lucky coincidence... Most people I know including myself have terrible handwriting. Are we all alcoholists? Even my friend who has never in his life touched a drop of alcohol?
