What's it like to give out autographs?

For instance, signing books.

I signed the book to a friend from Canada and some old school teachers.

It felt great me signing the autograph because I had a finished book in front of me that took 6 months or 1 month to write, the fruits of my labour, and because someone had cared enough about me and my book for them to ask me to sign it. It also made me feel a bit famous in a way, because fame is relative, meaning that a person with 5 fans isn't going to feel sad about signing something because they haven't got 50 fans for example. A person with a bachelors degree isn't going to feel sad because they don't have a masters. They would both feel the same. I wondered about more ways I could get either famous or rich, because I'd been paid to sell a signed book.

I have a signature that I use that isn't me writing my name, but the nearest scanner is 2 hours away so I can't post it in the foreseeable future. You'll just have to make do with my name at the top of the sheet about water above.

What's an assertion, and what should I type in?

Compesh is a question and answer (and debate) website, so before you make a debate, you better learn what an assertion is. I suppose you already know what a question is, and that you've typed it in the box. ;)

An assertion, is basically a statement you can make, that is either true or false.

Richer people have better health.

The question for that would be, Do richer people have better health?

And don't forget to make your assertion, match your question.
