A crackhead just gave you a 42thousand pages leather notebook that appears to have hand written text inside it, he claims that it’s “the gospel of all the truthes in the observable and the yet-to-be observed parts of the universe”. What is your next move?

I toss it in the nearest garbage bin
Start a cult
Go through it.
Find a way to keep in contact with him and read through the book
Cross reference his book with current knowledge of the universe from mainstream academic sources to figure out if he’s into something or not
Explain to him writing “cheese” 237thousand in body fluids is disgusting and to try a fancier title
Smoke some crack and read it.
Throw the Bible in the garbage can
Well, I’m definitely going to *look*.
If it what I expect, then I can toss it and not worry about it.
If it seems useful, I’ll scan it and put online.
Carefully open the book facing away from myself, then if nothing pops up, take a quick look inside
Rewrite some bits, create a religion from it with the secret purpose of gaining money and influencing world politics.
Step 2….. Step 3. Profit.
Say nuh uhhh! Your a crack head!
Read the last page.
A 42,000 page notebook would be 14 feet thick. Not counting the leather cover.
Throw it away. It’s garbage. You have no concept of how BIG a 42,000 page book is, do you?
[Here is an example of a 10,000 page book.](https://blog.lib.uiowa.edu/conservation/2011/01/07/10000-page-book-bound-at-conservation-lab/)
I wash my hands. And disinfect.
I’d probably read the first page out of sheer curiosity and go from there.
Re-write my self into it and start a new religion.
Convince people the only way to right their sins is invading Italy form an army and take over the country make a new law that all pizza must have pineapples corn ketchup and mayonnaise on it (punishment for not doing so is death by SNUSNU) watch the world burn while eating my pickle flavored Gelato
Ask if he has any crack.
42 thousand pages? Damn that’s a big book! I’d probably be trying to get out from under the ginormous piece of twaddle while he’s using its weight to hold me down and steal my wallet.
Drop it, because a 42,000 page book would be very heavy.
This, uh, [book spine calculator](https://www.diggypod.com/how-to-publish-a-book/book-spine-calculator/) tells me that it would be about 208 cm or 7′ high.
42 is the answer. You have here 42 times 1000. I would suspect that there is at least thousand answers to life.
Well first off, thank then, just becaise its a gift i don’t know what to do with yet doesnt mean i’m going to forget my manners
Then just crack that baby open somewhere in the middle and see what ots about
Kill the crackhead, see if the book makes any sense. If it does, market it as a new religion, become a billionare.
Read the first 10 pages and then 10 pages from the middle followed by 10 pages from the end.
I thank him for his dedication. And offer him a drink of water. Then send him on his way. He’ll probably not ever come back.
If he does I’ll tell him I have a quest for him to get milk from the store or some shit. Probably read through it in my spare time occasionally, think it’d be pretty neat despite most of it probably being nonsense. There could be a few truths in there after-all… just because there’s so much, its hard not to learn *something*
