Yet to my technical lettering professor at college (more than 25 years ago), those would not have looked any more clear than this one.

... unless you're good at reading Shorthand. I can't recognise which one this is—it's been far too long since I picked up any shorthand (35 years ago, when I was 14), and I don't remember whether I learned Greggs or Pitman 2000 (I suspect the former). About as unrecognisable as the various mathematical formulae I'm seeing tossed so casually around.

That's an adaptation of Taylor shorthand to Portuguese. I borrowed a book from the local public library when I was 15 (40 years ago) and studied it intensively for ten days or so. I used it only occasionally at school to take notes but I still haven't forgotten it. Never got really fast at it though. Good for writing cryptic messages :-)
