The Illuminati in Hollywood
A couple of years ago I met a guy who had recently majored in engineering. We started talking and when I asked him about what books he had read to learn about a certain subject he said that he hadn't read any because good engineering knowledge is not in books ...
I was working one job where a guy I worked with said he was too busy t read. The job we were doing at the time required to him to read labels - and I got blamed for every box that he put on the conveyor belt. When was the last time you read anything.
"I think we ought to read only books that bite and sting us. If the book we are reading doesn't shake us awake like a blow on the skull, why bother reading it in the first place? A book must be the axe for the frozen sea within us." - Franz Kafka
Sebastian Junger "The Perfect Storm" (1997). Have any of these people EVER had a desire to read any book? Good grief. Very sad. That book was turned into a Hollywood movie. Blame this on all the social media junk out there. It has shrunken people's brains.
When I was in school I hated reading. Being forced to read random stories and text books really turned me off to the activity. It wasn't until I was 18 or 19 where I picked up a book. I can't stop reading now lol.
Its so sad and depressing that you all think your being shown every person they interviewed. All these videos like this have an agenda. They want it to appear like everyone is stupid. If you believe this shit then your the dumbass.
This wouldn't be the case in New York. You can see straphangers reading on the subway although not as many as you would've before the cellphone turned them in mindless drones. I feel so sorry for people who don't read they're missing out on one of the greatest joys of life.
I can't help but think of the original War of the Worlds: the Time Traveler meets the Eloi, he asks, "show me your books". The simple Eloi directs him to an ancient library full of crumbling, rotting books. His response: "Yes. Your 'books' tell me all about you."
The Wonderful USA, I’m reading a book, the greatest book ever known to mankind, the beautiful Quran.
Is this the nation who judges all others and assumes a lot about Islam yet 99% of your population have never read it, hmm very odd!!!
Kill them all. Take to the streets. We are like the slaves from early America. We out number them by the thousands but do nothing because of the illusion of control. Rise up in the masses. No color. No race. Rip them from their thrones and make the fire bright.
While I agree people should continue to learn by means of reading a book on occasion it doesn't necessarily mean that it's a necessity or the only way. You can learn many different ways these days and if you're associating reading a book for pleasure as a standard to gauge education then it's a retarded concept. I agree with damn near all your points of view but this one is nonsense. Books aren't for every soul. This one looks bad on you
It may take a while to empower yourself with the know how to reach David Blaine or Criss Angel standard but you should have a lot of fun along the way. A useful reference for learning card magic is The Royal Road to Card Magic book which is a card magic classic and a valuable tool to learn from.
The beauty of this fascinating hobby is that you can learn it at any age. Whereas starting younger does give you the advantage of usually being able to get the hang of learning new magic moves and sleights relatively quickly, there is nothing wrong with taking up this great pastime even if your 60 or 70 something, heck, the sky is the limit here.
Penn and Teller have contributed a lot to the popularity of card magic with their television specials and will have inspired a lot of people to look into this fascinating hobby. Who knows, if you practice enough, you could even make a decent living as a professional card magician and make money doing what is also an enjoyable and profitable pastime.
Should you choose to become a wedding magician or restaurant magician doing close up magic with cards, this enjoyable pastime can also be a good money earner if you put in enough practice to reach a worthy standard.
