Since I'm going to be moving in about a month and a half, I've been sorting through my stuff and clearing out the junk that I don't want to move again. As it turns out, I have a large number of books that I have no interest in keeping around anymore. Most of them are from college, things I either couldn't sell back or for some crazy reason decided to keep. Now that it comes time to get rid of them, I'm not entirely certain what to do with them. I suspect very few of them will be able to find new homes through eBay, and the local public libraries won't take donations of textbooks. I'll probably try to pawn off some of the programming texts on unsuspecting coworkers, but beyond that I guess they'll just end up in the dumpster. Seems like sort of a waste, really.
I also thought you, kind reader, might be interested in my panel by panel analysis of today's comic:
Frame 1: I suppose the caption makes the intent clear, but there was supposed to be a big fire blazing happily along.
Frame 2: Needs more bruises! Also, molotov cocktails are hard to read.
Frame 3: There were supposed to be mutliple books exploding like grenades. *pout*
Frame 4: Amusingly enough, my cogsci book is one of the ones I intend to keep.
