@TheStoicCrane Too bad Im a high end cannabis producing, part time apiary worker, who also has to manage symptoms from a catastrophic injury. I was just evicted from my parents home three months ago because they were tired of me telling them to fuck off when they asked me to spend my gas money driving 20km into town for the fifth time that week because my mom ran out of orange soda.
If theres nothing difficult or challenging about sitting down to read words on paper... why arent you doing it? If theres nothing difficult or challenging about it... why couldnt you simply read a book while walking to the gym in your 55mph traffic scenario?
But again, here we go with this multitasking idea I see from people like you. Such positivism. Relative to the simplicity of the book, the obstacle is understanding. The obstacle is the fact that labour must be expended to appropriate the usefulness of the information in the text. The less labour you have to expend to appropriate the usefulness of something, the less value it is going to have, ultimately. If you struggle greatly with a passage, you attempt to understand it fully, you will gain more from a single phrase than you might from listening to the entirety of an audiobook.
But nah really, lets just get Ride The Tiger in mp3 format, and then mute pornhub so we can masturbate while we're learning. Such a grand life. you'll be cumming all the time, and you'll be a supersmart philosopher who reads.
