A Very Unpopular Book.

At the RPI Library…

Mike D:
Hi. Are we allowed to check out technical books from the Library? I was hoping to take a Vibrations book for about a week.
Librarian: Yes. The only books you can’t take out are the reference books in the reference section.
Mike D: Excellent! Well then, I’d like to take out this Vibrations book please.
Librarian: no problem, do you have your ID?
Mike D: Yup, here ya go.
Librarian: okay, let’s see here. ::types:: okay. All set. And this is due back in 15 weeks.
Mike D: Wait, what? 15 weeks?
Librarian: Yup. February 7th, 2009.

    Maybe that’s how long it takes the average person to read the book.
