Well, I do stuff in Emacs all the time...

No, and neither were cheques.  Cheques were never very popular in
Poland, I think.  (Maybe before WW2...?)  I remember using them to get
cash from my bank account before using plastic cards, but that's pretty
much it.

I hear cheques are pretty popular in the US, which is yet another proof
that it's one of the weirdest places on Earth.  (Not necessarily in
a bad sense in this case - although I consider cash superior to cheques,
they may be superior to credit cards, which are among the worst of
humanity's inventions.  I do not own one, and I do not plan to own one
ever in my life.)

Best,
