I'd love to design a bookless library.

In America they call them fast food joints. In Australia we call that Parliament House.

I am so so so happy he replied though, it was good to hear from him again.
Good, thanks for that. I guess there must be a setting to send email when you get a PM? Glad his health is getting better.

So we have three or five jobs for right now that we can't do because of rain, and then fifteen jobs waiting for decisions to be made.

People get scared of rain out here. Really, the first rains of the season everybody stays indoors.

No shelves. I'd have a massive community space, with smart walls, floors, tables... 3D printers and normal printers so people can print if they wish, with paper recycling boxes and shredders incase they don't want to take anything with them.

The internet, although incredible, isn't always credible.

Libraries usually have access to thousands of ebooks and peer-reviewed journals and audio books and sometimes films/videos that aren't freely available on the internet. Libraries have to purchase liscenses to access quality content. Not a fan of a fair few companies that offer liscenses, but I imagine they'll stick around for a long time.

I PM'ed him on the off chance that this was true. Not sure though. Whatever email I used back in the day, I certainly don't use now.

Steam has added a ton of stand-up comedy in recent weeks, mad respect for that, but unfortunately no one is renting them so they have no reviews, plus the selection is a bit on the ty side as well, but at least there's a selection.

In the case of the Oroville Dam, they have a right to be scared.

Cheap golf balls.

Do you have any idea how many cheap golf balls my state's population of retirees knocks into our ponds, lakes and streams each year?

Well neither do I, but it's a lot! One day I'ma prove our enemies are putting powerful psychotropic chemicals on those golf balls, hoping to make us all crazy and thus, easy to overthrow.

I'm not entirely sure who's doing it, but I've never trusted Georgia...

.... and I never will.

In other news, I logged into Steam with the intention to buy Mafia III while it was still on sale and before I forgot, but I suddenly changed my mind and bought Watchdogs 2 instead. :conbluzed:
