The scene: the university library. The time: earlier today. The person: me. The books: on the shelves.
While looking for a specific book about rust my eye was caught by something. “Is that,” I thought, “another book about the history of containerized cargo?” I’ve already read, and bought, two such, but I am hardly going to refuse a third book just because I would not be able to buy it from the library without first losing it. “Oh, no, it isn’t,” I thought, “it’s about containerized cargo as a current and living industry. That’s great!” And I had a book I didn’t figure on borrowing to borrow.
So if you also remember that I’m still reading Usenet, you know everything necessary to prepare your own simulation of me.
