This building is sinking

The Main Library at Indiana University sinks over an inch every year because when it was built, engineers failed to take into account the weight of all the books that would occupy the building.

  1. there is a school (Kirkland high, in fife scotland) near my house which is the same…they never took the weight of the kids and the school equipment into account

  2. i go to iu bloomington, the university with the library in question, and i once investigated this fact for fun so i called the dean of student affairs and asked. long story short, he said that there is no way that the library can be sinking because the library itself is resting on a half a mile thick slab of limestone underneath the foundation which is keeping it from going down. it was funny when i first heard it though…
