Found on Planet GNOME:

  1. Grab the nearest book.
  2. Open the book to page 123.
  3. Find the fifth sentence.
  4. Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
  5. Don't search around and look for the "coolest" book you can find. Do what’s actually next to you.

The result: "To a novelist, there is no such thing as a 'good' sentence.". Can you guess, which book this was?


Apparent advantage is the better readability of the function call.

"The arrangement worked so well that Colin Irwin, who reported on the tour, commented that Mike and the others were very keen to stay together, permanently; indeed after the tour, the group was to continue to record and perform with Mike."
