You jest, but this is a real thing (or, it will be next year): https://burningcat.com/
Of course a white judge will let off a white suspect. Meanwhile you’ve got people of color getting decades-long sentences for minor infractions. Our criminal justice and penal system is WHACKED.[/soapbox]
The sad fact is that like many public services funded by taxpayer dollars, the Library was doomed long before the fire. Budget cuts had reduced the staff to bare bones and folks had already stolen a fair number of their favorite documents. So Merlin was wise to steal the books, and we know he succeeded because he used them to create the internet, the modern repository of all knowledge.

Fun fact: Alicia Keys’ real name is Cook and she chose her stage name based on a dream a friend of hers had, about trying to open a briefcase with a key.

Not exactly…there was a slight difference in air pressure when Eagle undocked from Columbia which gave it a tiny bit of thrust, which meant they were ahead of where they’d planned to be in all their simulations. Their computer was trying to land them in the middle of a boulder field so Neil took over. But he could see out the window. Every commander took over the computer during the other missions, also. You don’t fly all the way to the Moon to let a computer do the landing for you.
Just goes to show, Basic Instructions is one of those timeless comics that never lose their relevance.
