"Bachelor Officer's Quarters (BOQ) number 318 housed all the Habus and Q-model tanker crews."

That's from SR-71 Revealed: The Inside Story by Richard H. Graham, Col. USAF (Ret.)

From eryn_, who got it from a bunch of people, and I've seen in before too...

  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.

uh... the nearest book is a dictionary. it has no sentences.

also, the procedural analyst in me insists on pointing out that step 5 should be a qualifier to step 1, not a separate step at all, and certainly not at the end.

Heh. Did you see my note about the disaster shows? Looks like there is a 4-hour mini-thon of Zero Hour next Friday.
