With the increase of DNA testing, will it become standard practice in the future to sign all contracts in blood, as a form of ID?

I really friggin' hope not.
17 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 11/1/04 - 11:35:34 AM EST (GMT-5)
um no.

thats a really good question...it would be pretty cool i guess, if it was only really important stuff, otherwise i'd never get to skip school and forge a note again.

Probably not in blood. Maybe you'll have to lick you contract for DNA..hehe
17 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Tuesday 11/2/04 - 8:17:05 PM EST (GMT-5)
Cool! They could have different flavoured contracts.

I dont think I would do so well with that (I really hate the sight of blood). And can't you just imagine the blood when it gets all dried up and crusty...
17 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Thursday 11/4/04 - 2:09:48 PM EST (GMT-5)
I doubt it
17 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Thursday 11/4/04 - 6:56:02 PM EST (GMT-5)
I hope not

That'd be cool. Though probably not blood, the DNA concentration would be too low
17 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 11/29/04 - 6:47:34 PM EST (GMT-5)
no, spit maybe not blood tho
17 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Monday 2/21/05 - 7:44:39 PM EST (GMT-5)
that's a cool thought but i couldn't bring myself to prick my finger. That hurts.
17 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Friday 4/1/05 - 11:32:23 PM EST (GMT-5)
that would be a good idea.....

Lick here to sign ---> X

The future is here. This is what is going on the compulsory National identity cards Britian is bringing in for its citizens and already on cards in other countries. I think the US are thinking of bringing in the system too.

Yeah, but if you were looking for a job and you went out and filled out a whole bunch of job applications that day, you would never get to work at any of those places, bc you would die of massive blood loss by then...
And would you have to prick yourself? I dont want to prick myself...
17 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Saturday 4/23/05 - 4:19:27 PM EST (GMT-5)
i think they would probably find some way other than blood, like licking yes, but by then im sure they would come up with something ingenius. its a cool question, and certainly nobody could ever forge again...
17 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Saturday 4/23/05 - 4:27:28 PM EST (GMT-5)
don't think so. dna testing, even if easier, will still be expensive, and in case of doubt there are experts who can find out a forged signature, so i think that signing will still be used. and if another option is really necessary, i would go for putting finger prints instead of signature.
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Monday 5/23/05 - 7:31:37 AM EST (GMT-5)
Ouch, I hate needles. I hope not.
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Monday 5/23/05 - 7:47:38 AM EST (GMT-5)
I hope not! That'd suck monky balls.
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Monday 5/23/05 - 7:54:29 AM EST (GMT-5)
Seeing as how a single flake of dead skin contains more than enough DNA for identification, it'll be more likely that contracts of the future will be sticky.

no needles...
NO NEEDLES....
NO NEEDLES!!!!

I doubt that actually happens but if it did, it would be awesome.
15 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Wednesday 5/30/07 - 4:27:36 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, that seems a bit weird.
15 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Wednesday 5/30/07 - 4:28:42 PM EST (GMT-5)
That seems excessive.
15 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Wednesday 5/30/07 - 4:33:26 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't think so, I actually agree with squeagy, fingerprints would be much easier and a lot less expensive. Plus, identical twins have the same dna but different fingerprints, so it would actually be more accurate to use fingerprints as id.
