    Hehe, I think this is a warning that I should get to the library to work on my PhD… if only it wasn’t so lonely … on a cold and grey friday morning… in the library ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I don’t get it. I thought OCD’s defining characteristic was to excessively repeat an action and that doesn’t seem to apply to the encyclopedia galactica.

    • Doug says:

      Yeah I was thinking less of OCD and more along the lines of the colloquial meaning of “obsessive-compulsive”, (or there’s also Obsessive Compulsive Personality Disorder, which involves over-the-top perfectionism and being excessively meticulous)

        Makes sense.

        When I was growing up we didn’t have Internet, but I had my own rack of Encyclopedia Britannica and I do believe I read it all the way through.

        Hyperlinking has really changed learning for the knowledge hungry ADD geek. You just can’t read Wikipedia from beginning to end.

    I cannot read this cartoon until you include the missing sections ADP, AFP, AFQ and AFR…..and Volume ADR – AER is shorter than the rest. The volumes should be all the same height. Let me know when this is all fixed so I can look at this cartoon again. Upsetting, very upsetting.

    Most of the questions I get in regards to types of reference materials is what and how do I use an encyclopedia? Wikipedia destroyed the encyclopedia. This is Hilarious, Vol. Hib-Hil general given name to Roman Stand-up Comedian playing at the Amphitheater on Friday and Saturday Augustus 8th and 9th 53AD
