I don't know why people get so upset by the lost library of alexandria. I bet if we found it now it would be the equivalent of finding an old floppy disc from grade school with just dumb **** saved to it
#34 to #31 - edt (05/16/2014) [-]
in that library, there is probably more lost information on one shelf then there is in your dumb ass mind. that library was one of the largest and most significant libraries of the ancient world. Acted as a major center of scholarship since its founding in the 3rd century BC until the Roman conquest of Egypt in 30 BC. With collections of works, lecture halls, meeting rooms, and gardens, the library was part of a larger research institution called the Museum of Alexandria, where many of the most famous thinkers of the ancient world studied.
so listen here you little **** there is probably a huge fount of knowledge with information there that will likely never again see the light of day so no anon it would not be like finding a floppy disk, it would be like finding a more then a Terabytes of knowledge.

While I will agree that the information may not be useful, that doesn't mean it isn't important.
