Life Confirmed: Librarians are Super
posted by July 18 at 13:50 PMon
Christopher’s experience with Seattle’s information elite has been on my mind all week. See, my librarian friend Jared began volunteering as an online reference librarian on Sunday. He’s been over every night since, solving problems on my living room floor.
Here’s a sample:
i have noticed alot of asian girls who date white men, but not alot of asian men who date white girls. what’s the deal? Any statistics about how often white women date or marry asian men, and maybe some tips for an asian guy who wants to date a white girl? thank you
I need help in finding a school that will teach paranormal psychology. I am wondering if you know of any school in Oregon that has this certain type of class.
Immediately followed by this (coincidence???):
There seems to be a ranch house in Texas that is plagued by frightening poltergeist activity. At night, ear-shattering blows seem to emit from inside the walls. Thunderous booms accompanied by loud and prominent footsteps echoing from the hall terrify all who choose to spend the night there. Light fixtures shake and rattle, chairs and tables are heard to fly by themselves and shatter against walls and floors.
An entity terrified the owners and guests by whispering their names among other things
When this unknown entity chose to make it’s presence known, the room, or rooms, would grow “Ice Cold”. The poltergeist activity was vicious and violent, but no one was ever harmed in any way - at least not physically. Eventually, the owners called a noted parapsychologist to investigate the haunted house in an effort to comfort the curious.
Their equipment recorded the same ear splitting blows to the walls, etc.
Anyway, this noted ‘expert’ on poltergeist hauntings attributed EVERYTHING to something called, ‘The Palchi Effect’. He stated that this happens when water runs through, or squeezes through layers of limestone underground. Now- I’ve heard some lame explanations for hauntings before, but this one beats them all. Any information on this ‘science’? Help me out.
Jared answered all but the last (which he deemed unsolvable, and agreed with the questioner that the “doctor” was obviously the type prone to inventing science and recycling his feces) while sitting on my living room floor in short-shorts, snacking on Twizzlers, and watching Steven Segal movies.
So there you are, Christopher. A glimpse of the Other Side.
(Librarians I love you.)
