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.
First book at hand: My MSc. Thesis (1998). As luck would have it, p. 123 is a graph with a one-line caption. (“Figure 4.18 – Comparison of QS vs. flattening angle for some natural biotites [Shabani 1998] with the main sequence of figure 4.17.”)
Second nearest book at hand: Numerical Recipes in C, 2nd Ed. (1992)
We are also given an array
x1a[1..m], and an array
I imagine maybe some people have books where a random sentence has neither code nor equations in it?
