End of the Encyclopaedia Britannica destroys pleasant moments of relaxation

After been printed for 244 years, the Encyclopaedia Britannica will exist only online, which will reduce significantly our research options. Before, every time we wanted to make some research, we had two choices: one was to get up, get into our slippers and dress our robe, go down the stairs, make tea, open the library door, turn on the lights, fill the pipe, light it and look in the 32 volumes of the Encyclopedia. The other was to look instantly at Wikipedia. Besides, what will people who planned to spend $ 1,395 to purchase the encyclopedia do now? Unfortunately, it will be available online for free for a week, starting on some Tuesday that no one says which one will be.
