Please Remove All Appendages From The Scanner
Don't ask why, but I was for some reason or another compelled to look up The Compleat Angler by Izaak Walton on Google Books last night. For those of you living under a rock, Google has scanned like a bazillion books into whatever "cloud" they upload crap into and provide them to you, mostly for free, via their search engine.
Anyway...I know this book is viewed as one of the granddaddies of fishing themed books and what not. Ike & others like Dame Juliana Berners are straight up O.G.s. fo' shizzle. But honestly, I lost interest in The Compleat Angler after about 3 pages. Does a translation into somewhat modern English exist? All I see when I try to read it is "blah blah blah, blah blah bah..." Yes, I also realize that part of it has to do with the fact that I'm part cro-magnon and really don't read books all that much. I'll wait until Tyler Perry one ups James Prozek and makes the movie version.

Second, and more importantly? Who was the stunod who decided it would be a good idea to begin scanning their fingers as well as the pages?
And what's with the partial gloves? Some fingers are covered, some are free as a bird, others are discolored and playing peek-a-boo through holes.
Just found that interesting. And also somewhat thankful that it's only fingers, and not a hairy ass or an errant wang that made it into the scanner instead.
