I was even more pumped one of the times because I read Swiss Family Robinson and then wanted to switch over to Robinson Crusoe and still came to a grinding halt.

I feel like a fat guy trying to do one of the final events in the Ninja Warrior challenge. No matter how many times I try, I'm just not getting up that curved wall thingie and I'm not finishing that damn book.
Haha... I didn't realize they were commenting on my b****ing about that book approximately 6 months ago. Hillarious because I just made an attempt again back at the beginning of Christmas break and failed, as usual.

From the last page in the thread:

Ugh...
