@destraht Ironically, if anything that's offensive.

That's practically telling non-whites they don't deserve their own literary characters so accept hand-me downs that no one really cares about anymore.

It's akin to Black History month being the shortest month of the year. It's a covert middle finger.

@TheStoicCrane See, again we have an example of you not being capable of reading. Whats even worse is that you insist on treating text based communication as if its verbal. Pretending like you didnt hear me, or that you heard me incorrectly when theres nothing to hear. Its a real pussy tactic that wins you the likes of lesser users like @Stigma, but really only serves to show that you're a conflict adverse vagina to those of us who can clearly see what you're doing.

You run away from real books and drown out their insistent spectres by losing yourself in an audio stream. Audio streams require less engagement than books. To read a book you have to be fully engaged with it, you need to eliminate distractions and focus on the text. It has to be you and the text, nothing else. Not some faggot hollywood actor whose dulcet tones can sweep you away to a fantasy land where you believe you're learning but you're actually half listening while you masturbate.

@VintageNaginta Had you taken the time to articulate the benefits between reading a book (active participation) v listening to one (passive participation) while citing a source that expounds on this line of thought I would've been willing to entertain it.

Relegating this topic with the sentiment that AW-DEE-OH BOOKS R DUMB!! without forethought is just lazy and uninspired.

@VintageNaginta What was that? Too busy enjoying my 4th audiobook of the day to care.

@TheStoicCrane Your comprehension of rhetoric is exemplary. Which is funny because it actually proves that youre the one who needs my replies to be in audio format. See, here one of the obstacles of your understanding me is that you have to do work to understand what Im saying, especially insofar as it relates to your comment. Since that work is beyond your scope, its much easier to reduce a sentence that denotes me as being employed as a beekeeper, and simultaneously a skilled labourer in regards to the production of cannabis, to one wherein Im a "weedbird".

The same behaviour is seen in your audiobook listening. You reduce the process to something simplistic, and claim to have reaped the same benefits as having undertaken the actual process.

@VintageNaginta

a high end cannabis producing aviary..

That explains alot!

why couldnt you simply read a book while walking to the gym in your 55mph traffic scenario?

Because walking near 55mph traffic is safe.

Such positivism. Relative to the simplicity of the book, the obstacle is understanding.

Distinctly pointed out that time was the factor. You ought to listen to my post by audio because you clearly couldn't understand it reading.

@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.

@VintageNaginta Access and time are fundamental factors. If you're a kid in college there's plenty of time to pick up a book. Outside the insulated bubble of academia you're luck to have 4 hours of consistent free time throughout the weekdays.

The same book that'd take well over a month to finish by reading 30mins per day listening via audiobook while lifting would 2 weeks or less.

There's nothing difficult or challenging about sitting down and looking at words on paper. It's pretentious to think reading is some "obstacle" when it's no different than breathing or pissing. Especially if you have a physical colligiate dictionary on hand. Time is the problem.

If I can listen to 3 books in the time it'd take to read 1 then go and read the book material I'm actually interested in to supplant my understanding and rentention of the information covered it'd be absolutely stupid not to.
