Jetsam

I am just not blogging much these days. I know you know, but somehow I have to say it out loud (in print).

This very tidy little question the other day on the reference desk:

"I'm trying to find out the volume of a barrel of oil." And there it was tucked away in the Science and Technology Desk Reference, and I found the answer in under 60 seconds. Those are the questions that make you feel like you have your finger on the pulse of the world's information.

Hubris, anyone?

How strange! I have been pondering that very question. How much IS a barrel of oil?
