Our New Library
Our new library is super cool! First of all, it is enormous! Every different style of book has its own wing (ie: children's books, adult non-fiction, adult fiction, reference) They also have tutoring rooms and a media room, and classrooms. They have self checkout, and you scan your library card and stack your books on a special plate, and it magically knows which books you're getting! It's probably a sign of "The Beast" (all the fun new doodads are) but I don't care. It's cool! I'm sure "they" (whoever "they" are) already can track me using my magical new library card, not to mention my cell phone, car, credit cards, and the secret chip "they" implant into us in the hospital without our parent's knowledge or consent...am I getting a little paranoid? When will they be able to do this with our groceries I want to know? Just stack your groceries on the conveyor belt, and they are all rung up at one time! They can do it with library books, they should be able to do it with groceries! I'll have to check the technology out and start my own grocery store. Everyone would come! I'd be so rich, I'd make Sam Walton proud!
