I hate not being able to read papers fully. Many that I am interested in only give an unsatisfactory abstract with $$$s for the rest. This particular publication really interested me, so I put in an inquiry on the cost.

Way too rich for this retiree.
Just complaining, don’t mind me.
Many libraries at universities — and especially if there’s a medical school — have journal subscriptions or e-subscriptions that the public are welcome to read.
In Indiana one can sign up each year for the local JC tech school and pay $25.00 that for some reason gets you offsite access to the library system and all the journals. It is a PITA to do this every year or sometimes (I never know the reason) every six months and the darn constant email reminders to submit my class schedule.
Hey a guy can only sign up for substitute teacher training so many times and not show up before someone says, hum I bet he isn’t coming.
