I think Mr. Henderson is inadvertently supporting his opponent's argument (again). All he demonstrates is that his interest in gorillas is greater than that of most of humanity. I have no books about primates in my collection, and this is the only time in my life I have written about them.
you have made MY point. chris's claim
is that a book indicated interest in a subject and that means the man could possible be an expert in that subject.
well, one would think an expert would have studied more than one book on the topic and i'm not sure how many card cheating and magic books gallway has. for some reason chris makes it sound like he had many
if he isn't worried about having his name in a book on the subject one should expect there to be many books on the subject - card cheating, not gambling in general
but thing is, even though i have done all these things, i don't have an interest in gorillas per se. i have an interest in 1) books on unusual subjects 2) haunted houses - love the gorilla room and 3) was friends with a man who did a version of the nairobi trio and i tracked down the original
so to conclude that the presence of 1 book indicates i'm a gorilla trainer
would be inaccurate.
to me, one book - with a name in it - assuming the author wanted to avoid discovery discounts the candidate
this is when chris makes up an imaginary scenario and then calls me names.
