Science requires some imagination you know.

Right....science makes up for it....

*sigh* Its obviously your choice. But you are stunting yourself, to be honest. At least in my opinion.

At least you read something. Thats a silver lining.

While being knowledgeable on fact-based topics is important. It's equally important to be well-rounded. Even if you don't realize it when you read you learn things, unless you read Twilight...yeah, there's nothing there of value.

Well there are good books and there is Twilight.

Kind of like there is Cosmos and there is Jersey Shore.

Good response.

And that's why I have never read any of that series.

Vampires simply do not sparkle, damnit.

How about empathy? You often struggle with understanding people, at your own admission.

I can learn empathy by playing a video game, or talking to people as well.

I read it because I wanted to know what the hype was about. Oi. Lol. Maybe you just have to be a horny 13 year old to understand the value.
