Like any good incognito session, they should throw in some benign topics.

"I went to the suicide section, but there weren't any books there."

"Yeah, people don't usually bring them back."

Librarian here: we really, really don't judge you for what you read. Please don't be afraid to ask. This is a great sign though, either way.

Edit: Sorry, I can’t reply to everyone. My apologies to anyone who has felt judged by a Librarian. A big part of my schooling (and my personal philosophy) includes NOT judging people. I have no idea why people are looking for information on a particular topic and it’s none of my business. The profession has something called the Code of Ethics which we are all supposed to follow. Part of those ethics are: I. We uphold the principles of intellectual freedom and resist all efforts to censor library resources. II. We protect each library user's right to privacy and confidentiality with respect to information sought or received and resources consulted, borrowed, acquired or transmitted. III. We distinguish between our personal convictions and professional duties and do not allow our personal beliefs to interfere with fair representation of the aims of our institutions or the provision of access to their information resources.

The majority of Librarians are wonderful, helpful, nonjudgmental people. If you encounter a Librarian who is not these things, please don’t think we are all like this. I have worked in academic and public and special collections Libraries in both the north and the south for over a decade and have never worked with any Librarian who was judging someone (out loud at least). Please continue to use and support your local Library – with the way things are going the Library might be the last place where money doesn’t affect one’s ability to access information. Looking at you FCC!

That's just the word Aladdin with a oil lamp. The Disney Aladdin logo looks like this.

The glue is made from Robin Williams who held that movie together.

Rub it, maybe Robin Williams will pop out.

I rubbed it when no one was looking. All that did was make my hands sticky.

I bet you wished that you got the idea to post it first right about now, huh?

For those who missed it, like me: https://www.reddit.com/sub/mildlyinteresting/comments/7i3ow4/i_didnt_pick_my_lettuce_and_it_grew_...

Thus started the great lettuce tree war of 17. Biggest upset since that guy with the cabbages back in Ba Sing Se.

Thinkin i might decorate it and win the internet. I have to think of salad toppings that double as christmas tree ornaments

And people make fun of me for actually parking in my garage instead of filling it with junk...Mind if I use your picture as a counter?

Hah, fools. I live in a building without the access to a garage so I encounter this every day.

Sure thing, feel free to use it. :)

It’s like time froze for a moment here.

It’s worth about $5

You can't https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Silver_certificate_(United_States)

You'd get more selling it to a collector.

About is right, and only if you found a collector willing to pay a bit more than face value for it.

Well at current rates you could get about 9 grams of silver for $5, if you consider that redeeming. Your treasury note would work just as well though.

Edit: today's lesson in economics, money is backed by nothing other than the collective conscious trust that it holds value.

It would suck to have your phone fall out of your pocket and right through the fence into the river below.
