Linguam sericam hablo, pro illa victoria!
Yeah, I’m getting to be rather silly and irrational.
But now I have a CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics! On loan for a few days or a few year, de cofabro matris. Now I can look up terms from “Ab initio method” to “Zwitterion,” the boiling point of Bicyclo(2,2,1)hept-5-ene-2-methanol, vanadium (IV) fluoride, and bond lengths if lots and lots of organic compounds.
Tis very heavy, and thick enough to make into a little hiding place for stuff, like Milano cookies. heh, advertising.
