I Meme, You Meme, We All Meme For... Well, Something

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 23.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the sentence in your blog along with these instructions.


I'll do this one better: the sentence in that position from my textbooks this quarter. Let's see if this is amusing at all...

"Show that the cuspidal cubic (y squared) = (x cubed) in affine 2-space is normal."

"To men of the seventeenth century, for example, dogma contained nothing that unsettled reason."

"When techniques for the examination of DNA became established, gene structure was naturally one of the first areas where efforts were concentrated."

"It is interesting to note that the above method can also be used to give another proof to Theorem 2."
