I'm a dork to the nth degree

So the other night I was watching one of my favorite shows, History Detectives, on PBS. On one of the segments they were researching whether a set of books once belonged to John Calhoun. Of course the books were Gibbons full set of The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire. As they were discussing this book and how many of the United States founding members had read it, I decided that I must now read it too. So of course I went out and bought a full seven volume set. Abridged versions are for bitches. I'll let y'all know how it was. It'll probably take me a year to read it all, but I could use what I learn from this book to take over the world.
