Does Not The Heaven Vault Above?

Written by

This almost graceful array of laptop chargers was spotted in Butler! Look at those beautiful parallel catenaries! What Bwog wonders is how did these intrepid and dedicated students sling their chargers up that way? Like a grappling hook!? Or a lasso? What say you, wanderer?

You gotta do what you gotta do.

Name that title quote!

    Who the hell engineered this place?

    • if you noticed  

      this is the room where they keep all the Dewey decimal system cards ... so I imagine it was engineered at a time when computers weren't that accessible (let alone ones you could carry around with you!)

    more of catenary than a hyperbola

  4. Simple  

    Drop your charger over the railing and use the stool in the photo (or scale the card case a little) to plug it in.

    Those are my favorite seats in the library. I wish they were easier to get!

    Folks are taking advantage of the outlets built into the card catalog furniture; in the days before the renovation brought the miracle of A/C, we had oscillating fans plugged in on top of the catalogs.

    I have no idea why they're using those outlets instead of the ones built into the desks themselves, though. If the power's not working there, they should tell a reference librarian so that we can report it to facilities.

    As it is, it's so tempting to hang one's laundry from them...

    It's better then running extension cords on the ground. There is no trip hazard, a small chance of someone walking into the cord on the upper level, but that would minor. I give it an A+
