John MADDEN! aeiou!

I went to the stock market today; I did a business.

Thanks Doc. How many of them should I take per day?

I guess that explains this?

Just reminding you that you are trying to have a relationship with someone who is - and again, it's bizarre I should have to point this out - three young boys stacked on top of each other under a trench coat.

Putin sure knows how to ooze IDGAF

I get that most doctors are in a hurry. It seems like as intelligent as they are they would take the time to write legible so the pharmacy doesn't fuck up a prescription.

The thing is; he is crude but VERY intelligent. These little stunts shows how much better he thinks he is, and that is intimidating. He knows all of the dirty tricks, such as always bringing a huge fucking dog when meeting Germany's Merkel (she has phobia for dogs).

I think he is calculated. Brutal yes, but he is a player who knows the game.

My feelings towards him are a mix of disgust and awe.

He was at some meeting, I can't recall. But someone said it just looked like he was scribbling. Now I presume it's just Putins cursive hand writing.

"This is the kind of guy that when he scores a touchdown, he puts six points on the board!"

"This kind of guy....he's the kind of guy that when he runs he goes faster!"

Do they still write prescriptions in cursive where you are? Here, for the last decade or so, the prescriptions come out of a printer and the doctor merely signs them with squiggle.

I'll translate: "Scribble scribble scrib scribble scrib scrib"

I am Russian and I can't even understand it. Except for the first word maybe, which is 'жалобы' (соmplaints).

Well tbh I'm a native Russian speaker and this shit is barely readable. Usually handwritten cursive is easier to read irl. I can write/read Russian and English cursive without much problem. OPs picture is unreadable and I'm not sure if it holds any meaning at all or if it purposely was made illegible

Or, as Vladmir Putin calls them, "Russia."

Actual translation: "All your Ukraine base are belong to us."

:)......:(

As a Russian I laughed so hard at this. Everyone's Cyrillic cursive is like a secret code. I literally beg my parents to write shit in block letters.

If Putin wasn't such a shitty person, he would be the best person. I never know how to feel about this fucking guy.

I really wish Vincent Adultman was in the series more. He was my absolute favorite character.

That's a strange font to use on a form...oh, wait.

Wouldn't it be great if he's just a complete idiot and did all that stuff by accident.

snake part killed me.

This is glorious. I bet it took literally seconds longer than scrawling something illegible on the paper.

in case someone is wondering: лилии, дымишь, дышишь, лишишься, слышишь, шиншиллы, ишемия - it's just a random word collection... with lots of "и" and "ш" combinations.

RIP /u/Daiwon

Are you sure he's not a bubble jet printer?

Don't be sad horsey.

apology for poor english

when were you when /u/Daiwon dies?

i was sat at home on reddit reading thread when snake kill

"Daiwon is kill"

I bet I know what the complaints are about...

Can't do too much of him. Think about it: he's the only truly surreal character in the whole show. Sure, to us the animals are weird and all, but that's noremal in their world. However, Vincent is 3 children and BoJack is literally the only person who recognizes this surreal element.

Vincent's more than just a Man...

I had the literal translation: "This is boring, I don't care."

Nurse here: Yes, MD's will still write prescriptions or orders in cursive, but if they are illegible, the MD can expect the order to be rejected, and have a nurse or Pharmacist call and request a legible order resent, or at least issue a verbal order until a written order is signed off.

Because I figure someone will ask sooner or later

Vincent is quite possibly my favorite character on that show

Not all Dr's in the US have stepped into the 20th century, let alone the 21st.

When they told me it was because doctors are always russian to get things done, I imagined something else.

Can anyone translate that?

Any context?

Tungsten! Take lots and lots of Tungsten!

I like the implication that it isn't that no one else notices that Vincent is three kids, it's that Bojack, being the miserable horse that he is, is the only one who cares.

"Ok, so I just did a bit of research. I live in China and I can't understand this. Asked my gf. The deal is this. This was purposely written by the doctor to be non-readable. This will stop the patient taking it out of the hospital and to a much cheaper local pharmacy. The doctor entered this into the computer at their hospital and if the patient goes to the hospital pharmacy, they will get the right drugs. If they take it elsewhere, impossible. This practice is slowly becoming less common and is frowned on by authorities and the customers as they wise up. As you can see from the date of 2012, there are still some small-town places doing this. Less likely to get away with it in Beijing.

This would align with another experience I once had where I was prescribed something at a local clinic and when I tried to take the prescription to another pharmacy the woman ran out the door after me grabbed the prescription and tore it up !

Finally joined today after lurking for months to pass on this info. :-)

edit: If you continue on in the comments down below you will see this is only partially true. Apparently although any normal Chinese person will not be able to read anything, a trained Chinese Traditional Medicine doctor might have a chance at understanding some of it. Sorry, for the misinformation, but the fact that they don't want you to go somewhere else to get it filled, is totally true. :-)"

Finally, a group of people I won't have to explain my vincent Adultman costume to.

the second is not "dymish" it is "to fume" in second person singular

It actually isn't. Russian cursive is a pain in the ass.

You see, he caught the ball and ran it into the endzone. That's a touchdown!

I died when they showed him pull out his vacation outfit and it was a hawaiian print trench coat

Worse than Russian. This is shorthand. I'm impressed he went out of his way to learn it. Since he's using it, I suspect he can take transcript as quickly as a person typically speaks.

That could be an anime

/sub/penmanshipporn would appreciate that

Cyrillic cursive - it's just as bad in Ukraine and Belorus and Bulgaria.

Are you Luuur, of the planet Omicron Persei 8?

Huh. I wonder if "Scribe" and "Scribble" share a common root? 

Like, to scribe is to write, but to scribble is to write messily.

Edit: Yes, they do. 

scribble (v.) Look up scribble at Dictionary.com
    mid-15c., from Medieval Latin scribillare, diminutive of Latin scribere "to write" (see script (n.))

My Dad is a doctor, Russian is his native language, and he can't read it.

The patient is a goner :'(

I read this in Frank Caliendo's Madden voice.

But what if he is not kill?

I just love the fact that, they never actually explain any backstory.

You just obviously see that it's 3 kids in a trench coat, but have no idea why they are there, and the only person who realizes it is Bojack.

I hope they never explain it, and just keep letting it go on. It makes it that much funnier, IMO.

then who was phone?

Why do you get your parents to write that?

A couple doctors were protesting in my hometown yesterday

Or maybe there is some obscure law in place that states that prescriptions must be in cursive?

No. Some doctors just keep an Rx pad in their pocket, and scribble off an order or med rx for speed. Lots of hospitals are still using paper charting, and cursive is faster, but harder to interpret. Plenty of error occur because of this.

For many private practice dr's, new tech is expensive, and they don't want to spend the money.

Well he's a former KGB agent.

Pretty sure it's a "frequentative", meaning that adding "le" or "er" onto the verb means "again and again".

Compare "-le" crack : crackle crumb : crumble nest : nestle nose : nuzzle spark : sparkle

or "er" chat : chatter bat : batter slide : slither

Now go figure out how disgruntled came from "grunt". :)

I didn't know Michael J Fox was a doctor.

native speaker and i can only distinguish the second line: "кашель сухой" (dry cough)

I'm starting to see a lot of really deep metaphors in the show. For instance its being told by bojack's POV, toward the end of season 1 he's really not in the best mental condition and when his ex long time girlfriend picks up a guy at the bar he finds something wrong with him (its a comedy so of course the thing that's wrong with him is a bit ridiculous) however, all the other characters seem to love Vincent. I'm beginning to trust the masses opinion rather than bojack's honestly.

Who is this John Madden and why is he so popular in the game?

Oh come on, that picture is unfair. It's just a compilation of words that happen to look like that. And it's probably a full list.

3 of those words I didn't even make out, and Russian is one of my native languages.

When it's a sentence (and not a list of words like that) Russian cursive is not that bad.

Usually I find myself unable to read cursive due to someone's cryptic handwriting. Like the one OP posted. And I find it hard to believe that doctor who wrote that will be able to read it back again.

Although, yeah, Russian doctors are infamous for their ridiculous handwriting, it's almost like they teach them to write like that in a medical school. I have no idea how does one start writing like that.

who still narrates the quintessential video game for the sport.

What was the last madden you played? His name is still there, but that is it he doesn't do the commentary in the games.

Actually, we used to have printed forms and when he would write on them, it would blend it with the rest of it and orders would get missed.

World's most giant doctor!

I'd watch it, right up until the point where he chooses the wrong fucking girl and marries his sister.

Also to add, if you like Archer, watch this show. It is fantastic

I accidentally took M. Am I ok?

Cyrillic should have slight separation between letters that makes it easier to read

There are supposed to be ways to distinguish cursive letters in Russian like small "hooks" in front of L/Л and the "dip" in the I/И and M/М are at different heights. Other tells are that sometimes people will underscore or draw a line over certain letters to make it more legible.

Yup, underlining is how I was always taught to differentiate them.

Without underlines, my last name looks super fun to read: http://i.imgur.com/QOYMp0G.jpg
