School Uses Money Donated by Book-Loving Librarian to Build Shiny New Scoreboard

This is why I’m taking all my money to hell with me when I go. All 11 cents of it.

Robert Morin, weird hermit, was 77 years old last spring when he died after working for 50 years at the University of New Hampshire’s Dimond Library. This dude apparently amassed a $4 million fortune by eating only frozen dinners, driving a 1992 Plymouth, and having no social life whatsoever.

This guy was into Fritos, Coke, books, and almost nothing else. Morin was working on reading every book in the United States written from 1930 to 1940, and had reached 1938 when he died. His second greatest love was videotapes. Over the course of 20 years he watched more than 20,000 videotapes.

So of course, after Morin left his $4 million to the school, they decided that there was no better way to honor this monk-like frozen dinner loving weirdo than by building a giant scoreboard for the football field in his honor using a chunk of his gift.

No one is happy about it, and I hope his ghost haunts the shit out of it.
