    7's rarely, z's though. comes from taking math classes where you have to write z a lot and your z's are hard to differentiate from your 2's otherwise

    Nope, not just you. I cross my sevens, and my Z's as well.

    My father does this.

    I usually write my fours closed instead of open, and I give my ones little hats and bases.

    People who cross their 7's should be dragged behind the shed and shot.

    I do it sometimes, and with good reason. When you are handwriting numbers and letters alongside each other in serial numbers and whatnot, you need to ensure that everyone who reads what you wrote will be able to read each character correctly. 2 and Z are often mistaken for one another in particular. Depending on people's writing, I can confuse 9 and G, 6 and 0, 1 and 7 and of course 2 and Z. Most other letters and numbers are easy enough to work out.

    Sevens and zees, baby.

    Vivi, I am going to return from seventh circle of hell to haunt you for that comment.

    Why would anyone want to keep Bill Murray out of anything?

    He is too almighty to be a part of squabbles!

    I bet Bill Murray crosses his sevens.

    If he does, it's only because he's Bill Murray and knows no one will tell him not to.
