Only if you open them all the way so the cover folds around back though

That’s key

Huh I do almost all my writing on legals pads but since they're always attached to a clipboard I tear off old pages and number them rather than folding over, to be stapled together later. I never thought to lift up the stack and backing to check the last few lines I'd written before.

But yeah that's obviously why they're 3 inches taller than letter size. I've been making an idiot out of myself!

Wait no, that doesn't make sense. Because the new pages are still the same length as the ones you previously wrote on. Doing a tiny bit of research apparently it's mostly about it becoming a tradition because the pads were cheaper to produce than letter paper, and it helps you quickly tell the difference between letters and notes you wrote. That is a use I've relied on.

yea i've filled up hundred of legal pads with bullshit and the main reason i've found to use them is that they are yellow and long which helps you easily find/identify them at a glance in a stack of letter size white papers. i suppose i probably have done the 'peek at what you last wrote' probably before, but i'm not sure it's any easier than any other notebook or just tearing the page out and setting it next to you when you've filled it up.

He wrote "25 Minutes to Go" as well.



But despite being in the same lyrical style, he did not write "One Piece at a Time" or "Five Feet High and Rising".

Not a recent Don Don but as a child I thought the lyric in "Home On The Range" was "Where 'seldom' is heard / a discouraging word", as in Americans are going around saying 'seldom' all the time (and it is very discouraging).

YES!

Same, lol. Dunno if they were saying it all the time, but I thought it meant the word seldom was discouraging too.

I think there's a story about Ornette Coleman telling him that there's no way he's not black.
