Books

College bookstores are a scam. I caught my visit today on film.



I need to start shopping online.

I love how they take someone's used Trust and Estates book, give them $20 bucks for it, and then sell it for $95, when the price new is $118.

Bastards.

I was told by a prof in grad school that the largest purchaser of used books is the book publishers so they can shred them and sell new copies to suckers like us. I don't know if this is true but he thought they were bastards too.

You know what people are? Bastard-coated bastards with bastard filling.

I can't take credit for that, so kudos to the person who names the source.

Dr. Bob Kelso, Scrubs.

Here it is on film.

Kudos to el guapo!

I have to revoke El Guapo's kudos because it was Dr. COX, not Kelso ;)

Guy Fawkes said...

Let me rephrase...the ORIGINAL quote was attributable to Dr. Cox:

Dr. Kelso indeed uttered it in El Guapo's video which is a clip from later in the same episode.

Apparently, the US Department of Education recently wasted a lot of money and time to generate a 95-page report on how college textbooks are too expensive.
