    Learn to make a living doing something that doesn't involve hurting your back. Improving your literacy skills would be a good start.

    If you are convinced you are going to be in pain and unable to work forever then that is what will happen.

    You just need to find a job where you do nothing and get paid better money than the dole. Have you considered a career in the public sector?

    I don't care what you claim about your back, it is obvious you are looking for any excuse not to work.

    The correct way to do it would be to get employed first then do a slip 'n' fall then milk worker's comp.

    Yep.
    Either method will serve it's purpose well and achieve your goal.... ending any chance of decent future employability.
    If it means not having to read about how tough you have it anymore, then I say go for it!

    I would say go for a sexual harassment claim, have you seen American Beauty? Then say you are sexually dysfunctional and have mental health issues and get your wife to sue them :)
