Yeah the whole TLDR thing baffles me as well as screen text opposed to print on paper, although I do rather like Audio Books especially while driving on longer excursions.... are these days but still a nice frosting on the cake of that suspended state of consciousness sometimes achieved while traveling.

interesting:
on the 20th, they edited ALL their posts to "...." - out of annoyance and spite no doubt.
then on the 21st they start trolling this thread with pointless remarks.

no other contributions.

i think LQ should shut this user down completely.

but the controversy attributing it to Abraham Lincoln, Mark Twain, Maurice Switzer, or the Christian Bible (and proibably others as well) having likely never read these or even anything much about them... possibly much of anything else at all considering almost all reading TLDR and not worth the effort. I often wonder why there seems to be an inverse proportion between intellect and the desire to advertise the lack.

Have you noticed this only on the Internet or better: “since the Internet?”. Well, I have. Meaning that it had previously been much the same, only we did not notice.
If the population of our Occident comprises 10% clinical narcissists, nothing [claims|imposes] that they are all “bright” people at the same time.

Aaaand.., on topic, I have read “The Arab of the Future” by Riad Sattouf and am “currently reading it” until the last volume has been published. The guy does us all a great service. Even if his movies are ... how do you say Bof in English? You do not need to watch them. His autobiography in comic is fantastic. Start with volume 1 if you can.

I hope this is not a misunderstanding, I created. Sattouf has made two films but none based on his graphical novel. The first one is a teenager comedy, not even bad, the second a satirical critique against fundamentalist societies of all types, but hidden so deeply in flat dumb acting, that I cannot recommend that movie. Some people like it, though, and my wife finds it downright amazing... makes me think. Maybe I am just dumb.
