1) As mentioned, anyone can start his or her own thread. Whether it's much read, however, is problematic.
2) Unlike, balok, I've got so many public domain books and purchased books that I'll never finish them in my life-time.
3) I didn't think you offended anyone, pilotbob. However, the suggestion about ignoring threads is very valid. (I ignore a lot of threads.)
4) I like silly threads, and many will get a response.
5) Read any good books lately, or is everyone just hanging out here?
