Law Library

Continuing with buildings I don't technically belong in, here's a picture of the bathroom in the Law Library. Like most bathrooms for graduate students, or in buildings built before the takeover of prefab architecture, it's super nice. When you first walk in you are in a nice lounge/ an actual powder room. A longer time ago, it might even have been a smoking room. But on to the stalls.

I'm not sure whether or not it's intentional, but I'd like to point out how very similar the stalls are to those in actual court buildings. At least in movies and my own experience (which are effectively the same thing, right?). The photo is from Runaway Jury- Gene Hackman and Dustin Hoffmann are either in, or about to get into a really principled argument in a very nice bathroom that looks a little bit like this one. In this bathroom there are faux/real (I can't tell) marble stalls with wooden doors and are extremely narrow. Somehow this set up seems way more solid than the Hiny Hiders of Angell Hall. Here, your privacy is secure.

The sinks are pretty nice, they're old-fashioned with one spout for hot water and one for cold. Although I like the way this kind of sink looks, I can never figure out the most comfortable or efficient way to use them. I usually just turn them both on and then switch back and forth which is really bizarre and never very rewarding, either. Cosmo once infamously suggested this as a method for blowjobs, and I can't even stand it on my hands. Sometimes when I'm in a hurry or really cold, I'll only put on the hot water and try to wash my hands before it gets way too hot; it never works.

Nice sinks, nice lounge, nice bathroom. But it's pretty out of the way and I don't endorse using this library casually (for studying).
