A man is lying dead in a dark room. There is a large pile of gold and jewels on the floor, a chandelier attached to the ceiling, and a large window through which rays are coming.
What’s going on? How did he die? Leave comments with your theories!
(Where in Westerville answer for September 28: The photo was taken at a corporate building on the corner of Cleveland Avenue and County Line Road — I can’t remember the name — but Luke guessed it!)
Today’s joke, in honor of LOL @ Your Library and Teen Read Week, goes like this:

A: NACHO CHEESE!!

This video will blow your mind. It’s one of those see-it-to-believe it kind of things. Artist/engineer Theo Jansen makes his “sand beasts” out of plastic pipe and things he finds on the beach. They move on their own using wind power: science fiction in real life. This ain’t your father’s tinker toys!Loading...
This made me laugh…and you will, too, if you’ve ever used those short pencils in the library.
“I’ll never take short pencils for granted again!” LOL!

Cheapchicweddings.com runs a yearly contest — making a wedding dress out of only toilet paper, glue, and tape.
If I did that, the bride would look like a mummy, but take a look at some of the beautiful entries!
I’m sure they cost less than a “real” wedding dress…but I hope it doesn’t rain! Thanks to Marisa for the link. Hmm…should we have a creative fashion contest at the library??
