Worst. Bank Robber. Ever.
"After being told by two bank tellers that they had no money to give him, a would-be bank robber became annoyed, vowed to file a complaint and left the bank Thursday morning, police say."

Things That Make You Go Hmm...
I was talking to a co-worker about working as a librarian and she said the thing that you never want to say to a librarian, "You'll get to sit around and read books all day." When I told her that librarians don't read books at work she told me that I could just have staff people shelve the books for me so I could go read. Oy. If you thought the same thing, please check this blog post out.
We were doing a discussion board assignment for my online class, and I made the comment that I am against banning anyone from looking at anything on the computers in the library outside of child pornography because it is illegal (there's more to it than that, but it's not interesting). One of my classmates in my group said that just because child pornography is illegal to me doesn't mean it's illegal and that it's the library's job to decide what's illegal, not mine. Whaa??

"WASHINGTON—African-American man Barack Obama, 47, was given the least-desirable job in the entire country Tuesday when he was elected president of the United States of America. In his new high-stress, low-reward position, Obama will be charged with such tasks as completely overhauling the nation's broken-down economy, repairing the crumbling infrastructure, and generally having to please more than 300 million Americans and cater to their every whim on a daily basis. As part of his duties, the black man will have to spend four to eight years cleaning up the messes other people left behind. The job comes with such intense scrutiny and so certain a guarantee of failure that only one other person even bothered applying for it. Said scholar and activist Mark L. Denton, "It just goes to show you that, in this country, a black man still can't catch a break." From The Onion
All kidding aside, I'm so happy that Obama won. I couldn't stand another term with a Republican president. I wish President-elect Obama and his family the very best. He has his work cut out for him.
