After a intense review of your posts you would be correct...
I would suggest you amble out back to the library where most would naturally assume your tech/science literature resides and come up to speed on a number of topics...
Taking notes would probably be advisable if capable and it would appear you should have plenty of practice?, however it might do well to remember that certain forms of used paper are not deemed suitable for recycling....

Well there you have it SoE AKA Son of Entertainment. Your above story line could get you employed as a stand up comic. Hay gets on your soap box near that street corner you live by and give it a go. I would appreciate a royalty from your income as a street stand up comic. Try it you should do well. You shouldn't need to practice you had plenty here in the past weeks posting your stand up comic stuff. So did you actually go to the library and do your research or does it come natural to you?

No, I couldn't compete with you on that stand up comic thing you circled the wagons on that industry. I take my hat off to you spending a considerable amount of time on a personal technical library of several hundred books. Maybe you should have put down those comic books but than you wouldn't be the commander of comedy.

No judgments just perceptions you display of yourself. No help from you just scientific science fiction. Judgments are a reflection of your and others insecurity. If you take notes you would have noticed that I respond in kind. When you and others call names and pass on bad judgments because you disagree with my opinion I do respond in kind. When you have some time you do need to check your moral compass.

I perceive that "fetid feces face flip flopper fiend" is a slimy steenking filthy vile reprobate rooting(& rotting) racist pukey proud pig AND alleged & proud threatener. As a rampant copier & hanger-on, its lack of intelligence would be funny. However, as many people short of brain cells, "fetid feces face flip flopper fiend" makes itself known due to its obnoxious verbiage, & wild diatribe aimed without a moral compass.
