  • Good job it wasn't a library book! Ooook

    Guy arrested and cuffed for not returning a rental video. Desperate people in S Carolina. What happens if your library book is overdue - a SWAT team at your door?

    No the librarian comes for you...

    Credo quia absurdum.


    Quantum mechanics describes nature as absurd from the point of view of common sense. And yet it fully agrees with experiment. So I hope you can accept nature as She is - absurd! - Richard Feynman

      Anybody remember the short story about the guy who is late returning a library book and ends up getting executed because the computers have a death grip* on the system? (The book was Kidnapped.)

          Well, he lucked out... His accuser "died" of sorts before the case came to court. Therefore, there's no one to prove he actually rented the movie... Got off on a technicality...

          In 2002, Mr Meyers rented the comedy Freddie Got Fingered from J&J's Video, which has since closed.
