    I got tagged by COD:

    1. Pick up the nearest book.
    2. Open to page 123
    3. Find the fifth sentence.
    4. Post the next three sentences.
    5. Tag five people, and acknowledge who tagged you.

    Well, I’ll skip step 5 but here’s the rest (slightly modified as the book on the top of the stack nearest me only went to page 60)

    He turned to the man who had tried to give him advice earlier. “If you don’t believe me, ask him,” he said. The man shrugged his shoulders.

    Is this supposed to reveal some kind of cosmic truth about me?

    “Why was that? ”
    “He was a shaman”, said the old seal hunter, “I think the tribe recognized him as a shaman before they adopted him.”

    Lol, that was interesting… from Philip Pullman in The Subtle Knife, closest book.

    Of course nearly as close was a book with:
    “During the 1933 purges in Germany, Goebbels fired 13% of the state’s radio employees in 6 months. The radio staff that were fired were not only Jews but Liberals, Social Democrats, and others not in harmony with the new regime….

    Opps, that was supposed to be 3 sentences:

    The refrain is interrupted by a sinister fate theme. Don Jose turns abruptly from Micaela and, in recitative, recalls the evil that strangely menaced him only today. He muses that the kiss his mother sent him from afar has saved him from great danger.

    “For maximum riding, this is where you want to park. For the first mile or so the trail runs parallel to and fairly close to Hartshorne Drive, but strategically located sand dunes prevent you from feeling like you are riding ‘on the road.’ Please use extra caution when crossing the beach access roads.”

    Counting forward you can get a very big but never mathematically infinite positive number and time “never begins.” Counting backward you can get a very big but never mathematically infinite negative number and time “never ends.” Just as we never reach positive infinity, we never reach negative infinity.

    But the article wasn’t at all what I thought it would be – a typical TIME takeout about an Arizona cowboy in the Senate.

    Instead, it was a big trial balloon about my running for the White House in 1964 as “the hottest political figure this side of Jack Kennedy” .

    It was a very unpleasant, unhappy experience.
