Utah Uni’s Cry Closet

by duncanr

Utah University has installed a special booth in the library where stressed-out students can go for a discreet greet

(pic and full story here)

hhmmm, not sure they have thought this all the way through

how can they ensure students use the ‘cry closet’ solely as a place to cry and not as a safe place to engage in other stress-reducing activities, e.g., smoke a joint, masturbation

Library of Abandoned Books

by duncanr

a bunch of binmen in Turkey began rescuing books thrown out amongst the garbage to read themselves

before long, they had a little collection that they shared amongst themselves and their families

as the saying goes – ‘from little acorns mighty oaks grow‘ . . .

they now have amassed a collection of 6,000+ ‘reclaimed’ books and have opened a library to make these available for the general public to borrow, and have lent books to ‘local schools, educational programs, and even a few prisons’

by duncanr

Beth, over at ‘I didn’t have my glasses on’, posted of her disappointment on meeting Spiderman when she was 7 yr old. It reminded me of the time we took our grandkids to meet some super heroes . . .

15th Oct 2006

batmanaccent2300I saw Spiderman in town on Saturday. Along with Batman and Robin, and Superman. The Superheroes were on the 6th Floor of the Library. I know what you’re thinking – another ‘Fathers for Justice’ stunt.

No. These particular Superheroes were part of an ‘Event’ organised by the City Council to encourage children to come along and learn more about the facilities on offer at the library. It was supposed to be a ‘fun day’. Mrs D had spotted the ad in the local paper and decided it was just the thing to amuse the grandkids.
