Well if it is common sense, I guess anything goes.

It is legal to play Halo 3 at the welfare class. You know the mandatory classes required to recieve public assistance and food stamps! Good to know that they are being prepared for the real world.

If I was you though, I would just stick with making the big X on the line and telling them you are illiterate.

Speaking of signing things, have you seen some vid where a guy goes around buying things and signs the receipt with pictures and the people don't say squat.

I've obviously stumbled into some sort of free speech conflict or something. You can only say so much in a sig. Wow 1000 charactors. Who knew. No stop words in pics. I bet you cant use the 3 letters "m (-1) s (+0) c (-2)" in your Avatar. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Security_AgencyHint use lemon juice.

sorry guys ...

Now for some logical thought, what the worst you have seen, betcha it still follows the guidelines, mix that in with what you may want to put, does it fit?...good put it there, is it a naked chick, or hidden hate mail, spam?....don't...figuring out how good forums operate is far from rocket science.

I have seen a webpage where the guy tried to see what he could get away with.
He drew pictures... drew scales with musical notes... then moved on to write "void"... not a problem with most of them.
The only time he had an issue was when he went to a store and specifically asked for their most expensive TV... then asked to purchase several of them... then wrote "void". Talk about mean to the sales guy who thought he was gonna get a good commission.

I now draw pictures at the self check-outs

So he didn't get charge with the void ones?

This came back to haunt my roommate on 2 separate occasions. Seems his bank does check up on your signatures for verification whenever you are making any kind of withdrawls in excess of $1,000(US) At least his bank did. Didn't really hurt anything, and the teller got a kick out of it, but we sat there for a good 15 minutes while she tried to find a legitimate signature.

I'll still scribble all kinds of ***** on my receipts. Stick figures are fun too. I'll never have enough in the bank to worry about it.

Yes Max it is. In fact, it's encouraged that you forge other people's signatures instead of your own. Like.. someone you know from school. Or your teacher's name or something.

I used to sign them upside down, or sideways. I pissed a cop off once when I signed the ticket upside down.
