This is a dumb story but I feel like sharing.

So I have a friend who worked in this building, in Manhattan. He brings this crate full of books they were throwing away, says I can have my pick. This was 3-4 years ago. I chose a couple that looked interesting, one of 'em called Full House by a guy named Stephen Jay Gould.

Fast forward a few years, this book (unread) is sitting in a backpack in a storage shed, taking severe water damage. I retreived it a few months ago, now I open it and it's all moldy. I still wanna read it so I scrape off what I can, rip off the outer paper... layer of the cover and now it's severely damaged but relatively free of mold. Then I dry it.

Now I open it to a page I hadn't looked at before and see an inscription, To **** and Libby, something something, signed Steve, and underneath that Stephen Jay Gould.



So it seems this book was signed by the author!

Now I'm peeved that a) I let it get all water-damaged and b) I damaged it even further before discovering this.

Isn't that just the tits.

Pay no attention to the immature comments about whale tits.

That does suck man, is this book well known at all? I'm not a huge reader but i appreciate vintage things when i see them.
Yeah, uh-huh...that's what they all say.

You should keep it in you're generations for century's then let you're grand grand son sell it so he eventually will become a rich bastard who doesn't even remember you.

But atleast he's happy.

Dude, I think I would know, Trivium invented Thrash, Metallica are lucky they got as far as they did piggy-backing off of Trivium's signature style.
