As fantastic and eccentric as his career seemed, Michael became a fodder for the tabloids.


I am wondoring,
"as ~ as"

Is it the same meanign of " As much as you can, you will be happy."


Thank you~
It's a wonderful day, isn't it?

    Unfortunately, your comparison sentence ("As much as you can, you will be happy") doesn't make logical sense to me but, yes, "as xxx as" is similar to what I think you're getting at. Here's some other samples:

    "As tasty as this strawberry ice cream is, I prefer chocolate"
    "As interesting as this book is, I don't have time to finish reading it now"
    "As fantastic as it seems, I believe in aliens"
