How many of you are in the LA area?

Sorry, but I can't help you utopia. I'm a long, long way a way from LA.

Besides, I don't like to share. :P

Who said anything about going to a library?  I mean don't libraries let just about any person in?  Think about the germs of books that tens of people tough?!   :o

First by LA, do you mean Los Angeles, or Louisiana?  There is a bit of a difference between the two, and that isn't even close to a comprehensive list of what LA can stand for.  And before you reply that it should be obvious which one you ment, there's a whole state and an entity of the US government that recognizes LA as being the state, and there's about 37 million people in California that associate it with the city.

Second I'm wondering if your real objection to libraries is that you have to prove to them who you are and where you live, and they expect you to return the books you borrow.  Whereas with the anonymity of the internet you can get away with not giving a real name and no way to force the return of the book.

I'm still ticking, you haven't gotten rid of me that easily.  I've just been busy at school that's all.

And Germs don't exist while camping, so just go camping immediatly after leaving the library, and you'll be fine.

Precisely. What's more, I'm rather certain that UGH--I mean UG--won't foot the bill for the shipping and handling. Does this guy have no shame?

I am constantly amazed by you Utopia. I really dont understand what drives you to creste threads that cause people just to bash on you. At one point I used to come on this site hoping someone had some genius idea on some of EUOLs writing or maybe some news about it. Now I find myself going here to see what people say in response to the idiotic things you say. Really are you driven by lack of brain capacity to guess what our response would be to a question like, Can I have your book? Are you the worst fan ever or?

This is either just classic troll behavior or someone with some form of mental disorder/deficiency. I would say don't feed the troll, but trolls gotta eat too.

YES!!! I got a fell point. Take that Trebek! Now if they would only make a thread only I and fellow fell point holders could post in; I have something really profound I want to say.

I have something profound to say, too. It may or may not pertain to lava, but whatever. I wonder if lava has germs in it...

I found this excerpt from an article when I googled (lava, germs.)

Research from leading scientists have shown that some bacteria have survived under polar ice caps and in molten lava. Gems are every where, on every thing you touch, even your cell phone.

Im not going to say I know the site because I have never been there before but this is the link http://www.digitaljournal.com/article/124131

You can't buy them.  That was from a year and a half ago and it was a joke.

I'm aware of this now, I went and read the post and realized but wasn't upset about it any longer. What are you gonna do right. I guess Ill have to impress a moderator some other way. Maybe with my dazzling Linguistic abilities.
