Libraries are everywhere!

The characters are the same but the posters may be different. If no-one lets sheepy in, it may be able to keep PG-13!

<Science Rat clones library and opens it here.>

BlueTosh - 08 Mar 2011 17:10:57 (#2 of 12472)

Blue relaxes in a comfy chair noticing the empty stacks ...

<Cosh surreptitiously deposits one copy of a work of fiction, a dozen copies each of several different technical manuals, and a complete set of Journals of Physiology for 1992-98 on the empty shelves>

BlueTosh - 08 Mar 2011 19:04:00 (#4 of 12472)

<Studies article from 1993 Journal ...>

A new technique for field testing vertical jump height

Hmmm ...

The subject stands on a wooden box which contains a steel sprung tape measure, the end of which is attached to a belt around the waist. Upon jumping, the subject pulls the tape out of the box and is prevented from returning by a friction brake.

I don't recall that one, Blue - I think someone must have been hacking my library. It'd be a bit of an oddity, that, and I would definitely have remembered it...

Ah - Proceedings. I wasn't involved in Proceedings until after the format change. In '93 I was still struggling with getting the whole of the main journal DTPed in house.

<installs wooden box and friction brake contraption for Cosh to play with.>

<Davey the rat puts up menus. He'll provide the drinks.>

coshipi - 09 Mar 2011 06:44:58 (#10 of 12472)

Blue

I was never a physiologist - just ran the pre-press operation for them. And it would be daft to pretend I remember every paper we published, although a few of the odder ones do stick in the memory.

I could definitely do with one of those drinks, Davey.

Doctor5 - 09 Mar 2011 08:55:55 (#11 of 12472)

<Davey supplies. Foxie librarian points out all Physio texts are available on the computer attached to the jogging machine as well as in paper books.>

coshipi - 09 Mar 2011 09:19:10 (#12 of 12472)

That's why I've offloaded the paper copies onto the library, Foxie 8~)

That's bloody good stuff, Davey - mein Gott!

<splurts grog all over the 'puter>

Doctor5 - 09 Mar 2011 09:25:29 (#13 of 12472)

<Foxie librarian tuts and cleans up.>

coshipi - 09 Mar 2011 09:30:07 (#14 of 12472)

Sorry 8~(

Do you have anything with a little less - umm - bite to it, Davey ?

Doctor5 - 09 Mar 2011 09:36:46 (#15 of 12472)

<Davey provides the needed drink. With a can of mixer.>

coshipi - 09 Mar 2011 09:39:33 (#16 of 12472)

<Decides not to try the jogging machine>

<Settles down in a relatively comfortable chair, mixes drink, takes a few sips, nods off and pours the rest down his jumper>

Doctor5 - 09 Mar 2011 09:42:05 (#17 of 12472)

<Foxie Librarian tuts and cleans coshipi up.>

coshipi - 09 Mar 2011 09:49:20 (#18 of 12472)

<Surfaces sufficiently to realize what's going on, but insufficiently to deftly enclose Foxie in inescapable embrace. Falls on floor in non-deft attempt.>

Sheepy - 09 Mar 2011 10:33:58 (#19 of 12472)

<arrives bearing a suitcase and wearing a leotard>

Doctor5 - 09 Mar 2011 14:58:58 (#20 of 12472)

<Foxie hotel owner takes the suitcase. Voucher is valid for the suite for one week, then the janitors room.>
