    David took 16 years to write his list, but how many hours per day did he write for, 1, 5, 10?

    When did David commence that project? The year 2000?

    I see Dave doesn’t get any party invitations.

    David has entirely too much time on his hands. Get a life, David.

    I guess it’s better than “All work and no play, makes Jack a dull boy.”

    Approximately 6024 songs? That is a pretty specific “approximation”; couldn’t have been rounded to 6000 +/- 25 or 6025? I guess the 24 is to make it more believable.

    That “6024 songs” stat is impressive until you break it down. That amounts to an average of ~17 songs per day, or about 2 hours of music. That’s not a lot for a place that is dedicated to music.

    I was told that you could not verbally count to 1000000 in a life time. One , two, three is the easy part.But six hundred and fifty two thousand, one hundred and eighty three. Then doing it for ….. one eighty four, …. one eighty five, etc is an example of the longer part.

    How long would it take to write ONE HUNDRED EIGHTEEN THOUSAND TWO HUNDRED TWENTY SEVEN? about 10 seconds. So, I can do six a minute, right? that makes 360 an hour. So if I divide 1M by 360 that’s a bit over 2700 hours … which means, at a 40 hour week would be almost 70 weeks…. mercy, what does he do with the other 7 years of his life?

    David is obviously obsessive compulsive and cannot control his need to write numbers.

    Graziano depicts Wilkinson as a character in a dark and ominous state.

    Actually, we are just taking Wilkinson’s word for it — who would want to check him?

    Walking across the Niagara Gorge on a tightrope was a thing for awhile back in the 1850s. Check out Charles Blondin of France, the most famous. Among other stunts, he offered to carry a volunteer across on his back! Naturally, he got no takers, so he drafted his manager. Halfway across, he needed to rest, so he had his manager get down, stand on the rope until M. Blondin felt ready to continue, then had him climb back on his back and completed the trip.
