I got this from Darkly Scarlett. As I've admitted before, I have an unhealthy fascination with these silly meme's. Perhaps the 13-year-old inside all of us?? Take the five nearest books and string together a paragraph: from... Book 1: the first sentence Book 2: the last sentence on page 50 Book 3: the second sentence on page 100 Book 4: the next to last sentence on page 150 Book 5: the final sentence "'Mark!' bellowed the organiser of the Chichester Festival. This talk about free selling and buying, and all the other 'brave words' of our bourgeoisie about freedom in general, have a meaning, if any, only in contrast with selling and buying, with the fettered traders of the Middle Ages, but have no meaning opposed to the Communistic abolition of buying and selling. At first she felt a little panic; the absurdity of her situation struck her, and for the first time she saw herself as planless; she had only a little money, an apartment to keep up, and no idea what to do next. So picking is not really to be recommended. Thank you very much." In order: It's Not a Runner Bean..., Manifesto of the Communist Party, Who Do you Think You Are?, Food for Free, Bridge the Gap? Random you want, random you get. I should really stop procrastinating now and get back to my writing. If you want to see a better example of coherent randomness in action, check out my meme source - DS.
