Metroid 

SR388 does not have an official name due to being uninhabited. SR388 is a Galactic Fedeation serial number but no one actually calls it that outside of official reports. It does have a nickname though. Because of the abandoned underground cities that run beneath the surface of the planet it is widely known by the name "Metro".

I have a 100 year old book I would like to scan and preserve. What is the best way to do this without damaging too much or spending a fortune?

I have discovered that there are Team Fortress 2 Classic servers with custom weapons. I was playing on one with a bunch of stuff including a crossbow for the Demoman with bolts that explode a second after impact that I really, really loved.

I Am Not a Monster 

The game continues to be excellent but the plot is extremely grim for the mid century pulp sci fi aesthetics.
