Sign here: _____X____

I am going to start signing all my legal documents to the government with an “x”. If some of the past Aboriginal chiefs did it when signing treaties with the government, why can’t I do it today? Oh wait, signing an “x” means the government won’t be able actual know it was ME who signed it (you know, they care about my identity and the possibility of it being stolen… yeah, right) and it also tells the government that I don’t have “literacy” skills.

So, why was an “x” sufficient back then?
