The person who did my qualifying exam on the 3D x-ray machine at the LNFU is one of those sci-fi/goth/punk science types you see working the computers on murder porn shows on the teevee. She's got medium-sized holes in her ears, or will when she takes out the plugs - and she will take them out one day - and she's tough.

But she's also a class-A trash picker. Case in point: on Tuesday evening when I was headed over to look at the data from a recent scan, she was walking down the hall with an armload of  hand-dovetailed wooden boxes. I'd seen similar ones on my travels through certain basement sections of the LNFU.

Turns out they were one and the same. The mineral people were moving on to a more sophisticated storage system, which meant the boxes were moving on to a landfill. Most of the boxes. I grabbed three of them. I would have grabbed more, but I watch too many hoarder documentaries.

Oh wow, I would have loved those.

You can have one of the three I grabbed.
