Uhhh, happy for you I guess, welcome to how things were done in more mellow times! :) Most libraries have internet terminals you can use too, I go there if i have to print something, or if my computer breaks.

Re: Guess what I just got...

What kinda books you reading? I ditched my library card after college, but i still have dozens of books in the "to read" pile and i keep buying more, so i'm still good.

Re: Guess what I just got...

Went to edit with the list but forum cut me off before I finished putting in authors...messed it up..Galouye wrote simulacron 3, Abbot wrote flatland...

Was looking to buy a copy of simulacron 3 but couldn't justify spending $30 on a paperback from the 60's. Checked the library on a whim and it was there. Loaded it up with a lotta things I wanted to read/finish but never did.

Ohh yeah. I know I'm 32 man. But I really had no clue about the printing services until as of late..better than kinkos! That being said don't care about printing I have dye sub, white toner laser and a DTF right here at the house.....I can print tshirts!

Biggest library memory from years ago was a dude jacking off looking at porn there in 05'.

I just wanted to read again and Id prefer it to be paper books...

Re: Guess what I just got...

Nice! I worked in a Library in undergrad and used to spend my shifts sitting at the front desk reading whatever book caught my eye that people had returned to me. I miss it a lot.

Re: Guess what I just got...

My helmet rendezvoused with a cicada @ highway speed once. Sounded like I got shot in the head and my helmet twisted a little sideways. I stopped to take it off and see what happened. It hit above the right side of my visor and left the most bug gut mess I have seen to date. Something like that would have turned an eyeball inside out unprotected.

Full face and long sleeves. Anything less is just nasty.

Re: Guess what I just got...

i've hit 2 cicadas, it's like getting shot with a paintball. Worse though I caught a bee in my helmet TWICE ON THE SAME TRIP, once leaving town for a weekend, and then on the way back andother one got caught under my cheek pad and stung the side of my face several times. luckily im not too alergic or anything but fuck me that was a shitty time.
