When we discovered Atlantis, and all the branches of knowledge that accompanied the discovery, a cry of anguish was heard from librarians all over the world. The Dewey Decimal System was full. How could we classify all this new knowledge?

The workaround agreed upon was to allow two more values for each digit, “*” and “#”, as well as the customary “0” to “9”.

It became known as the Screwy Dewey Duodecimal System.

@FutzleFiction @dzshuniper This is genuinely a great idea - let’s start with the comp sci books and get them out of 003-005
