I absolutely love this photo, I think it’s the favourite one I have of firstandlastandonly and I together.
Because I happened to have a camera on me, we snapped a selfie in the queue for the professional photographers at graduation today. I’m also kind of sad that I don’t get to wear a gown all day ever day, because having a fur trimmed hood is amazing and makes you feel just a little bit like a Norcsan warrior of some kind.

I believe you can buy a gown for a measly few hundred pounds if you really like it :P

@saladinahmed: At last, cartography addresses the ? “Where were The Proclaimers walking to?” (by @HazelMcKendrick) pic.twitter.com/Hu6YplPQ9b

I always forget how tiny the UK is. If you were walking 1000 miles total in Canada, you’d get to, like. Winnipeg. And then cry, because, well. Winnipeg.

Aw, lookit how little.

Given that the guy is only walking to prove that he would walk a long way to get to the love interest, he could surely just do a couple of loops around the country?

THEY HAVE THE ACE ATTORNEY OFFICIAL MANGA IN MY LAW LIBRARY I AM CRYING.



Your honor, something is amiss here!
As you are probably aware, library materials are labeled with barcodes as well as a number to determine their location on the shelf, as per the Dewey Decimal System. The books just to the left of the manga are labeled, as are the DVDs just in view on the lower shelf. Look even further behind these shelves and you’ll see that even those books are labeled! 
Ladies and gentlemen of the courtroom, I invite you to take a closer look at the volumes that are, allegedly, part of this law library! Something is missing from the spines, isn’t there?

Where are the bar codes?!
This is a blatant contradiction! The OP is lying— these volumes cannot, therefore, be a part of this library at all! I propose that they simply brought these materials in for the sake of the joke!! 


Only focusing on one aspect and not the whole of the issue, are we, Mr. Wright? Typical.

Your honor, if you bring your attention to the books just left of the manga, you’ll notice there’s a book (the second to the left) that also does not have a bar code.

If you examine the picture even closer—particularly the DVDs below—you’ll see that they bear bar codes, but not on the spines. No, they have them on the back and/or front of the DVDs. Of course, this method of labeling and organizing isn’t limited to products of the film industry alone.

Therefore, I’d like to propose that it is entirely possible that the manga books do, in fact, belong to the library!


Wh-WHAAAAT?! You’re kidding!! 
(Shoot, he’s got me there… Better think of something fast! Something about the books that sets them apart from—
…! I’ve got it!)
While that may be true, you’ve also overlooked one critical error: the titles of the books! Whether or not your hypothesis regarding the labeling system is correct, these titles aren’t alphabetized correctly! What kind of self-respecting librarian would misplace such vital books? 
Well, Edgeworth?



While it pains me to have to point out something so obvious, I suppose I’ll make an exception for you, Wright.
Clearly, one look at the titles of the books next to the manga is a tell-all of this certain library’s less-than-stellar organization skills. None of the books are in alphabetical order, I’m afraid.

They could very well be alphabetized by author and not title, but it’s a little difficult to be able to decipher that from this single picture, wouldn’t you say?
Furthermore, the manga books themselves are in numerical order, suggesting some kind of system is in place, albeit not a very good one, if the alphabetizing is off.

At the end of the day, it seems like neither of us can draw a clear conclusion from this evidence alone. Your honor, I strongly suggest a recess in which we could investigate the library itself further.

I see the issue here very clearly.
Due to the uncertain nature of this case, we’ll have to postpone this decision until more decisive evidence can be obtained. The court will now take a 15-minute recess.

(W-wait, but I’m not—)


WAIT!!!

I’ve got some decisive evidence for you, pal!

We investigated further into the photo. Zooming in, you can see a label on the DVD case to the bottom left.

Photo Close-up added to the court record!


As you can see, pal, you can vaguely see the words “Of Toledo Law Library” on the label!

And, considering possibilities of the rest of that label, “University of Toledo" was the first to come to my mind!
A quick search on the University of Toledo’s Online Law Library Database revealed that there ARE the comics pictured in it!
Miles Edgeworth Ace Attorney Investigations volumes 1-4 and Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney volumes 1-5!

And there’s more! 
The section these comics are filed under is the “Law in Popular Culture" Section, which matches up with the stickers on the rest of the books on that shelf: "Lowering the Bar: Lawyer Jokes & Legal Culture”, “Prime Time Law”, “Lawyers in Your Living Room!" and "Reel Justice: The Courtroom Goes to the Movies”!
Not only is it in the right section, it’s also a documented part of the Law Library’s database!
How’s that for decisive evidence?




…It’s true that the books are definitely in the library, but look at the books that are immediately next to it, on the left side!

Specifically, the one that is titled “Lowering The Bar: Lawyer Jokes & Legal Culture”. Therefore, the shelf is clearly on the culture surrounding the law itself and popular culture relating to the legal world!

I hardly think it’s odd to see the Ace Attorney manga as an example of either humor in the legal world OR popular culture relating to the law!

O-Oh. I guess you have a point there…
…

…
Hey, wait a minute, pal!
Don’t go pullin’ the wool over my eyes here!

The University Library’s Online Database clearly shows that the comics are filed under “Law and Popular Culture”!
See?

It doesn’t matter whether those comics are related to the section or not; they’ve been listed under it in this library, and that’s nothing but the truth!
And since they’re filed under “Law and Popular Culture”, they’re in the exact right place they’re supposed to be!

The books next to those comics have little stickers that say “Law Pop Culture” on them! That proves the books are on the shelf meant for the “Law and Popular Culture” books!
You can’t fool me so easily, pal!



Oh, I’m not disputing the fact THAT the library owns them…

…but rather, the significance of the original testimony in light of this fact!

Recall, the witness clearly stated, “THEY HAVE THE ACE ATTORNEY OFFICIAL MANGA IN MY LAW LIBRARY I’M CRYING”

However, as we have just learned, they were in a section explicitly dedicated to depictions of the law in popular culture… Which perfectly makes sense! So let me ask you….

Why did the witness act like seeing the manga in that particular part of the library was such a big deal?!? I’ll tell you why…


The witness has been DELIBERATELY MISLEADING this court this whole time!!!

For reasons that are unclear to me, I am watching Adventure Time. There is something worryingly mesmeric about this show.

Mesmeric? There’s a lot of things in the show I’d describe as “worrying” before I got as far as its mesmeric…

Although there are many questionable royals (literally) floating about, the lesbianism hasn’t come up yet. I look forward to having yet another compulsive reason to keep on watching.

And this is the most upbeat and cheerful post-apocalyptia I think I have ever seen!

Mesmeric? There’s a lot of things in the show I’d describe as “worrying” before I got as far as its mesmeric properties.

Well the most worry thing to me is the fact that I seem to want to keep on watching it without really knowing why…
