When Martian Librarians Catalog...

A funny little post (yes it's cataloging humor) over at Dewey blog -- on how Martians would classify Earth using Dewey. It may not be as simple as you think.

While traversing the universe from our home planet of Mars, we saw this beautiful blue planet called Earth. A fellow Martian explorer gave us the GAC code for Earth, "x", but our spacecrafts require navigation by the Dewey Decimal Classification. We went looking for the planet Earth in the Dewey Decimal Classification so we could assign a class number to the navigation entry "Earth -- Description and Travel". A search of the Dewey Relative Index for Earth turns up T2--4735 and T2--77621, neither of which is this planet called Earth.
