That won't happen. People aren't lined up to work in a pizza joint so what happens when he fires them or they quit? John won't be able to produce his product to meet demand.

Who the heck is "riler"? Still waiting for those cites.

And just because your comic books and women's magazines are less than 100 pages doesn't mean books of over 2000 pages don't exist.

I have no intention of listing such books. Even if you got one, you'd have no hope of understanding it. Leave the real books to the grownups, you run on back to your funny pages and your Jack Chick tracts -- those are more your speed.

No surprise here. I knew you couldn't name any when I asked the question.

There aren't that many, but since you insist

War & Peace
Atlas Shrugged
Complete Adventures of Sherlock Holmes
The Gulag Archipelago
just about any Stephen King novel, especially the later ones
Imajica
The Great Book of Amber
The Mahabharata
The Ramayana
The Hyperion Cantos
The Bible

And that's enough for now -- certainly enough to keep you entertained for the rest of your life. Note these are all the hardcover, unexpurgated editions.

So, since there aren't that many, but you read them regularly, do you read the same ones again and again?

Do you remember reading these books?

What bullsh!t? You asked for some books, I provided some titles. Is it an exhaustive list? Nope. Have I read all the ones I listed? Yep. Are there ones I haven't read that aren't on the short list I gave? Yep. Did I ever say I'd read every long book in the world? Nope.

You can't ask a general question and then call [email protected] because someone didn't provide you with an extremely specific answer.

So cram it, mater head.

And I'm still waiting on those cites, misterioso or whatever you call yourself.

Wob, you can't say you do something regularly, when its an impossibility to do as such. There are not enough books that size to read "regularly". You know this. Now, do I believe you may have read books with 2,000 pages? Yes, I do. Do I believe you do it regularly? No, I do not. Nor do I believe that if you read that entire bill AND comprehended it. You can say otherwise until the end of time, but we all know differently. So YOU cram it Wobbler. I swear, you're as stubborn as a damn mule.

You are the one who has on many occasions stated on here that one of the reasons you cannot work at a job is because you cannot retain things that you read/learn. That is why I asked the question and it is not a stupid question when you yourself have given the answer many times.
Maybe I should rephrase it. Do you remember what the books were about?
I swear Wob. I agree with the poster that said you are stubborn as a mule. You state on here the reasons why you cannot work but yet you show on here that there is something quite not true about your claims. You seem so capable of retaining everything said here and what you say you read and claim to be so knowledgeable on EVERYTHING. You must have a hell of a pile of notes.

Since you rephrased it, kitty, I'll answer you -- no, I don't remember what I read anymore, unless I read it before I was poisoned with gentamicin. If I read it before, I remember the plot and the characters. If I've read it after, I don't. It's like reading the book for the first time.

Over and over and over.

Which is why I took *notes* when I read the ACA bill, and I didn't read it in a day. It took a week, I think -- I don't really remember.

I don't remember movies I've seen since I became a wobbler either. Sometimes I don't even remember the titles, or that I even went to a theatre to see them.

Doesn't that sound like a whole lot of fun? Not remembering what you did less than a week ago, or what you read? Getting so tired just vacuuming the house that you have to take a 2 hour nap? Not being able to learn anything new because you can't retain it?

Some stuff I remember, like going to vote and who I voted for. Big important events I remember. But most things I only remember as general stuff, and the rest is just a hazy blur. Like I could tell you I went to the store today, but I can't tell you how much I spent or specifically what I bought.

And then let's talk about how the weather affects how I walk and how many times I fell down yesterday and today...

Yeah, wobbler's life is just so great and wonderful. That vestibulopathy is just a walk in the park. That's why she prefers to relax on her SSD instead of getting a job.

wobbler1957, i know of the condition you speak...i have hearing loss from the use of gentamicin...no imbalance that was permanent. treated for knee surgery and lost inner ear hearing in 1 ear becuase of it many, many years ago. sorry for your condition....but i still disagree you wholeheartedly about obumblecare (lol), and will argue with you about it until the cows come home. take care, and put on the gloves (lol, again).

I missed out on the hearing loss, and won the vestibulopathy lottery -- 100% bilateral loss. I have no sense of balance. I'm now *extremely* careful to never have an aminoglycoside antibiotic unless I'm literally going to die without it -- I'd end up with hearing loss because there's no vestibular system to destroy.

I'm so sorry you too were damaged by gentamicin. And thank you for verifying that my condition is REAL. Too many people here think I'm faking the condition, because it's well nigh impossible to even imagine what it's like to have no sense of balance.

I'm sorry I ranted about myself, I usually don't do that, but I get really tired of some people thinking they're so clever trying to "trap" me or something. Sorry folks, vestibulopathy is real, and I have it. Diagnosed at Emory Dizziness & Balance Center, balance rehab there. Not much help. I've been wobbling for about 8 years now, and just started back driving short distances this year.

Let's agree to disagree about Obamacare, and when you see the vehicle with the "I Like Obamacare" and the "Guns Save Lives" stickers on them, come up and say hello!

well, wobbler, at least you aren't "completely lost" to the "DARK SIDE" (liberals and those who blindly support obumble...lol, lol, lol, lol).

if you were, you'd never support the 2nd amendment....(guns)...so there 'is' hope for you, yet! lol, lol, lol, lol.

we'll cnvince you, yet! lol, lol, lol, lol.
