All college students go to the library at some point during their school career. If you go as often as I do, you have surely had numerous strange experiences between the shelves (get your mind out of the gutter!). But, the library is the perfect place for awkward moments to happen. Its silent (supposedly). Everyone is in the work zone (supposedly). And when we are there for long enough, our true selves show in full view of every other student.
As I was thinking about the right way to express these experiences, I remembered that I recently finished season four of BBC's "Sherlock." I thought to myself, "Shouldn't the most clever and intelligent person in the world talk about the place where a seemingly near-infinite amount of information is held? Yes. Yes he should."
So here it is! Take it away Benedict Cumberbatch and friends!
