    I actually do wash some of my coins once in awhile. Of course, I don't usually have the time to do that, so I make it a rule to always wash my hands after handling money. Or if I can't do that, I just avoid eating or rubbing my face with my hands until I do wash them. I wonder if that's the reason why I rarely catch colds.

    The public library is for everyone and is legally mandated to be truly accessible to all. This is why it is an attractive place to those have relatively limited access to resources and/or just like taking advantage of public resources. It's a very egalitarian place - which means the more priveleged have many other options.

    Then again, like others have said, it really depends on which library you are talking about as well. Some public libraries in the states are high tech and architecturally beautiful, others are um....kinda rough.

    I loved going to the library in silicon valley in CA when I was a kid. I would go after school and spend the afternoon reading instead of doing my homework. I love the main library in Chicago (forgot the name ) it's huge and something you want to see when you visit. I've also used the librares in NYC. Then I went to one of the public libraries in DC when I first moved here and I was just very...surprised. For a main branch it was pretty shabby and somewhat disorganized.

    Public libraries are places where the homeless go to sleep, bathe, or masturbate.

    The larger libraries are amazing.

    I don't necessarily agree with libraries existing solely for underprivileged people. Some texts aren't attainable outside medical and scientific libraries. Or law ones.

    I definitely encountered one of the masturbators. One of the most horrendous smells I've ever experienced. Wiped out like 1/4 of the whole library. I went to the nasty bathroom to get fresh air!!!

    My cold, snide, intellectual life is just a veneer, behind which lies the plywood of loneliness.

    A good point.
    The macro organisms are sustained by the micro organisms.
    Life is one.

    Let the germs thrive.

    Tidy hospitals kill a lot of people.
    Do not go near them.

    A public library is a source of health.

    I think this is why I never ever get sick. I was never given antibiotics as a child so when I got sick my immune system grew stronger and then everyone i know is always sick and I can be around them and not get a sniffle. I was only taken to the doctor if i was sick longer then a week or my temp was really high so of course I was given fluids and tylenol for aches and pains but the actual illness my immune system learn to fight. now I'm not saying if I had gotten very ill my parents wouldn't have taken me to the doctor they would have just most illnesses could be fought with adequate rest.

    I find libraries over whelming especially the big ones. I prefer book stores for some reason those don't tend to overwhelm me as much.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    Lucky you.

    Antibiotics destroys the immune system.
    Doctors order antibiotics for the common cold.

    It is logical.
    The interest of the drug industry is to perpetuate your illness.
    A healthy patient is not a good client.

    I used to go to the library early in the morning, and late at night.
    There was nobody around. Not even the staff.

    Do people really think this? What areas do you guys live in? I think the mall would be more of a problem. Library's are awesome. <3

    I always wandered about those people in the first class. Even as a child, I felt myself removed from them.
    Once I watched a woman in the first class. It was a train. There were only the two of us in the compartment. I was fifteen or something.
    She read a Christian newpaper. I did not get it.
    A Christian woman, afraid of the people. Did Christ tell her to be afraid of the people?
    nice.

    i also agree with antibiotics being given out too frequently. and no antibacterial soap. you need to fight off many germs to stay healthy.

    i go to the library to read and the people watching is far more interesting to me than barnes and noble. the downside is, i have to bring my own coffee. :P
