The Venerable Book Meme

"The search began for more substantial sources of energy, and before long the well-endowed water resources of the Merrimack River were tapped." (from my environmental history book)

The Venerable Book:
1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open it to page 161.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the sentence 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.

Movie News Roundup: Part 1

First I wanna make sure you know about two of my favorite blogs about all things Hollywood, Cinematical and TV Squad, which are part of Weblogs, Inc.

One day they will lock me up and ask me what I want for my last meal. I will probably ask for an appetizer of fresh mozzarella balls, scallops in butter and garlic for the main dish and cannoli for dessert. Ever since I tried my first cannoli around the age of 15, I have realized the best dessert in existence does not even contain chocolate. I get my cannoli at Buca di Beppo (who's version is drowned in chocolate) or Lund's deli, which probably horrifies the City Pages food critic. She wrote a whole article in this week's issue about cannoli and didn't mention either one. You get a paragraph of its history, tips on where to get the best local versions and even how to order some on the web.

You're only a day away

Even now - post deadline, having shirked my responsibilites - my stupid ass still refuses to write the paper!! I can think of 87 other things to do, none of them is finishing the big, huge, giant, 30% of my grade Paper. I get -3 initiative, -2 focus and +5 sloth for the past 3 days.

Repeat adventure script for KOL - courtesy of SolarFlare

Originated by Ohayou and working in Firefox:

javascript: function A(w){ if(/hypnotist|baio|crazy
bastard/i.test(w.document.body.innerHTML)) return; var
i,j,r=[],f=w.document.forms[0]; function q(n,v) {
r.push(n+'='+escape(v)) } if(f) {
for(i=0;i<f.length;i++) { with(f.elements[i])
if(type.substring(0,6)=='select') { j=-1;
while(++j<length) if(options[j].selected)
q(name,options[j].value) } else
q(name,value); }
i=f.getAttribute('action')+'?'+r.join('&'); } else {
if(i.substring(0,9)!='adventure') {
i='campground.php'; n=1; } } if(--n)
with(mainpane.document) { open();
0}</script><frameset cols=*
name=x src="'+i+'">'); close() } else
return void 0 } if(n=prompt('Number of clicks?','10')) A(mainpane)

Here is the same type of thing for IE, but I have not tested it yet. It seems to be the work of many different people:
javascript:if(typeof overNover=='function')overNover(); else{(D=document.createElement('script')).setAttribute('src', '');void top.document.body.appendChild(D)}
