Some friends of mine came up with a great idea, of which I was recently reminded by a blog I stumbled upon. The blog in question was critical of the idea, but it was a rather misinformed rant, so I thought I’d alert you guys and see what you all think.
You all know those Bible that are in every hotel room on the planet? Why not expand the library a bit with the inclusion of some slightly more educational materials? Demon-Haunted Hotels is hoping to get people organized to begin placing books like Flim Flam!, Demon Haunted World, and Why People Believe Weird Things in hotel nightstands. Perhaps bored travelers might be able to find something more appealing in these texts as opposed to a Bible or the February 1994 issue of Juggs Monthly under the mattress. Not that Juggs isn’t universally appealing, but maybe the person in question has already perused that particular issue.
It’s not just hotel nightstands — any public place can be targeted for drop-off. You can receive an ID from the site so you can track and identify the book, like WheresGeorge.com for skepticism.
It’s a cool idea, and I’m interesting in whether or not people think it could be worthwhile. What do you guys think? How can they make the idea work even better?
