    Teenagers are large children. Unfortunately, we treat them as small adults.

    taps the "humans are subadult adolescents until age 25/26" sign

    I do not know. I only overheard the talk between the sro and the vice principal. I saw it though. It was one of those water pellet toys, but one that was completely black with wood grips and the tiniest of orange tips that looked exactly like a real one. Like dude. What the fuck are you thinking.

    Maybe their head is completely empty? Has anyone checked to see if there's a brain in there, much less a functioning one?

    I mean, teenagers just do not yet have the brain structures to grok actual longterm consequences. Which is why it's insane that we let them join the military.

    Ain't nothing better to lubricate the machine of war than fresh blood. We also let the military lure teenagers who get pulled in by socioeconomic conditions cutting off most other routes, because it promises free college education and sometimes citizenship.

    Kids these days! In my day no one got suspended for filming fights!

    Mostly because they would have had to have had the foresight to bring the giant over the shoulder camcorder, make sure the battery was charged, the vhs was ready, the cap was off, etc....

    People often ask me about which books are the best, but nobody ever asks about which ones are the worst. Anyway, it's Friday and I'm bored, so I decided to get to the bottom of it.

    I ran a report of all 21,143 books currently on the shelves of my library's adult non-fiction section. Of those, 3,296 have never been checked out, by anyone, ever. 709 of them have been on the shelf since 2019 or earlier, so they can't even blame their miserable failure on the pandemic. Sorting the list by inventory date gives us the least-loved book in the library, which has sat in splendid isolation since October 24, 2012:

    aqubltknmng5.png

    Sorry, Shakespeare lovers. Science and math have ganged up on this humanities nerd and conclusively proven that this is the worst book in the library.

    Other highlights from the bottom of the list:

    The biggest waste of taxpayer dollars appears to be Sociology: Exploring the Architecture of Everyday Life by David Newman, which has been quietly ignored since it was first shelved in January of 2018 and cost the library $108 for some goddamn reason. Although you could also argue for The World of Renaissance Italy: A Daily Life Encyclopedia by Joseph Patricia Bryne. Each of its two volumes cost us $99, and neither has been checked out since February of 2018.

    The cheapest is a pocket edition of Hamlet that set us back a cool $4.95, which I suppose was worth a shot.

    One title achieved a rare dual nevercirc: Two copies of The Doula's Guide To Empowering Your Birth by Lindsey Bliss have both failed to be read by anyone since they hit the shelves in January 2019.

    And finally, we have Whatever You Choose to Be:8 Tips For the Road Ahead by Ann Romney. According to the door counter, we have had a shade over one million library visits since May 15th, 2015. Every single one of those visitors was profoundly disinterested in Ann Romney's shit.

    Only if they were put back on the shelf without us realizing! Which we have many polite signs asking people not to do.

    Books found on tables or on the reshelving carts are run through the sorter, which registers an in-house circ. That way we can take that kind of usage into account when deciding whether to weed or replace reference-style items.

    Usually that shows up in the system, if the books are being discharged after the shelving cart is pulled into the work area for sorting. Granted I don't know what ILS or procedures are being used in Jedoc's library system.

    Current boss of my facility has been getting louder complaining about how no one should be working from home. I have a regular remote day already approved prior to this boss coming here, so I think my plan is to say nothing and keep doing what I've been doing.

    And also hope I get an offer from the place I interviewed.

    I got the offer today and it's a 15% increase in pay??? Okay!
