bobbym wrote sentences of the form:

I am a bumpkin, not an x<ist>. I cannot (do) <verb> x or anything (related to x).

A doctor has the responsibility of many lives. Only a very responsible person can be a doctor. A person suffering from Asperger's Syndrome cannot do that.

Here is an interesting conversation between Agnishom and his Science teacher:

Science Teacher wrote:Corneally blind people cannot see because their corneas are either opaque or translucent. Cornea is the only part of the eye that is donatable and Corneal blindness can be cured by transplanting them.

Agnishom wrote:Hmm, well. Why don't we totally remove the cornea for those people? It would be faster and eliminate the need of any donor.

Science Teacher wrote:What? What ever you do, never become a doctor. If a patient with a skin disease comes to you, I am sure you would suggest peeling off his skin.

I had warned him about the dangers of quoting that guy but he seems to be unable to control the urge.

**In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.**

**If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.**

**Online**

I asked that, why is it so wrong?

It is not a bobbym quote, It is bobbym grammar.

Ugh, nothing. It is a question which shows inquisitiveness.

I do not believe you will ever be a bumpkin.

**In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.**

**If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.**

**Online**

But I can be an expert on them!

You have only met one bumpkin, you can hardly be an expert knowing just one.

**If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.**

When there is a will, there is a way.

Okay, so what has that got to do with doctoring?

I cannot or do not want to be a doctor.
