And then there were none

Yesterday I had one of those first-week-of-school moments of panic, when I looked up and realized I was the only person in the library.  It didn't help that several classmates, present minutes earlier, were suddenly all gone.  What am I missing?  What part of the schedule do I have wrong?!  So then of course I had to run around peeking into classrooms looking for the phantom class.  This may be further evidence that I am infected by epistemology.

 You know those things that bug you when you're, say, twelve years old, but no one else even seems to notice them, so you figure you must be the only weirdo who thinks about it?  Is it a little bit reassuring to find out that lots of other people have devoted considerable thought to the same problem?
