Ridiculous Library of Congress Subject Headings: Week of October 8, 2007

Hey iSchoolers,

Here's another dose of silly Library of Congress subject headings. The Silverfish LCSH vault is running low, so we would appreciate any contributions. Whenever you acquaint yourself with fantastic subjects like "Rock Music Yugoslavia" or "Chain Saws Accidents," please share it with the rest of the Information School community. Comment or submit your own posting!
          • Martians in mass media
          • Long Suffering - See Meekness
          • Crossword puzzle makers - Drama
          • Hurricane modification
          • Intelligent buildings
          • Trading with the enemy
          • Bouncers - Great Britain
          • Incubi
In reference to one of the above selections...I just want to point out that the National Atmospheric and Oceanic Administration investigated the following methods in attempting to control hurricanes: cooling the ocean with cryogenic material or icebergs, blowing the hurricane apart with hydrogen bombs, injecting air into the center with a huge maneuverable tube to raise the central pressure, and blowing the storm away from land with windmills.

Next up they'll have some new age psychologist talk to the hurricane, find out it's underlying issues and trying to quell its anger.

Hurricanes blow.
