Hi,

Thought something different then all the crap that is going on in the world. It might get your mind off stuff for a minute or two. So let's hear it.

Me personally like to read either the newspaper or a version of airliners world. At the mo it is a bit difficult cause I had my shoulder dislocated two days ago. So I am slightly bored since i am off work for a few days witch might explains this topic. Big grinD

It depends on the mood, but in general I like reading something short otherwise I've been known to spend hours sitting in my throne deep into my reading. Newspaper is always a good idea. Sometimes I read this book called "Life's little instruction book," which is very wise.

As of late I have been taking the book I am currently reading: "Seeds of Fire: China and the Story Behind the Attack on America" by Gordon Thomas.

At the mo it is a bit difficult cause I had my shoulder dislocated two days ago

I hope it's not the arm you use to wipe your ass! Big grin I hope you recover soon, I know from experience dislocations are painful as hell!

i keep copies of The New Republic in there that i like to thumb through to remind me to hurry up because i have better things to do.

they also come in handy when i'm, by chance, out of Charmin.



if assumptions could fly, airliners.net would be the world's busiest airport

As a matter of fact it is my arm i use to whipe my ass, it is quite difficult using my other arm but managable.

Hurts indeed, quite funny when the nurse said i was having a lot fun for somebody with is shoulder dislocated while waiting for the x-ray. Me and two friends were just having fun, but everytime i started laughing it hurts even more.

Did they give you any morphine?

I dislocated my right patella and right knee (basically the whole thing popped out of place) and was given a moderately high dose of morphine for the pain (including the pain I should've felt when the doctor put everything back into place). It got me on such a high I was shouting "party!" at the hospital and a nurse had to come and tell me to shut it!

The current book of choice for me is "27 Men Out: Baseball's Perfect Games". My new paperback edition is updated to include Randy Johnson's gem from last year.

The sports page of course.... first thing in the morning, I want to hear good news, people's accomplishments. The rest of the bad news, people's stupidity, should be saved for later, after coffee.

It depends, usually I am reading the newspaper (sports page preferred) and smoke a Marlboro Light while using the bidet as ashtray. Sometimes I also read airline timetables or magazines, somehow I must read something.

In the AM- the paper

All other times- Maxim, Playboy, or any novel I'm currently working on. Whatever's handy at that moment.

Well, most of the time it's in and out of the bathroom ASAP. But when a delay is anticipated, I will take Flight International or Men's Health in for a read  Smile


Not drinking, also isn't a solution!

Seriously, all of you, there is only one writer that embodies reading in the old defecation chambre: Charles Bukowski. He would be proud. While many find him offensive, and others just a purveyor of trash, I recognize him as the greatest American writer of the 20th Century (I'm not alone).

His novels, largely autobiographical, are at once moving, pathetic, and uplifting (and funny as hell). His short stories, largely culled from distant memories and with just a shred of reality, are very, very good. But it is his poetry that is best suited to the can. Usually one poem whilst the actual dropping of the load is taking place. Then, intermittent bits of another while wiping (got to transfer hands occasionally). This is not your grandfather's poetry, by the way. It is some serious shit. Check it out: http://www.levity.com/corduroy/bukowski.htm

I almost lost my lunch today because I witnessed someone come from the deuce stall and leave w/out washing.. I used a few extra paper towels to open the exit door needless to say..

For me it is usually a catalog, with the Office Depot catalog being the prime choice. Some of the prices in that thing just make me want to...um...well, you know.

About the smartest thing I have seen was in the restroom of the Aviation Program at the Galena Alaska Correspondence High School.

Somebody taped the emergency procedures for the Cessna 172R up to the stall walls.
