Unfinished questions
« on: October 03, 2012, 02:40:54 pm »
1) When Ms. Turner said that 93 Million miles in a balloon was checked out "10 years ago." Who ever borrowed it moved and left no forwarding address. Wouldn't the library call the police if a book was missing for that long? 2) Can't Arthur just look up the ending of the book on Google or Wikipedia? 3) When they look up the book on ebay or amazon, why does it cost thousands of dollars? That is almost much as the Nintendo World Championships of 1990! An NES game that had only 20 copies ever produced and was used in the tournament at the time.
Arthur: I told you...NOT TO TOUCH IT!!! Captain Falcon: Falcon Punch! Terry Bogard: Are you okay!? Buster Wolf!

1. Remember, 10 years prior to that episode, they didn't have such a complex and accurate checkout system. The library probably even has no idea who checked out the book. And even if they did, would it really be worth calling the police over?

2. He could, but the point is that Arthur isn't just looking for the ending. He wants to READ the ending. He wants to get all the excitement and stuff. Also, the Arthur series really didn't embrace technology much in that time...since they seemed to be trying to base the series in a world where all the modern day technology doesn't exist at the force it does today.

3. This isn't some new print book. It is old, most likely one published quite some time ago, possibly even 50 years ago. Therefore a lot of copies aren't still existent and in good condition. Keep in mind other things could factor in, such as that only a limited number of copies were printed, or something else weird.
