Book meme

Some people on Planet Debian and Planet Ubuntu are doing this meme


  • Grab the nearest book.
  • Open it to page 56.
  • Find the fifth sentence.
  • Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
  • Don't dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST.


It was not until the fourth day of the campaign that a major
labour movement figure spoke out in defence of Scargill and
Heathfield


This came from The Enemy Within, Seumas Milne

Meanwhile, I'm wondering if this is a way to index geek books within
the bounds of fair-use ;)

Theorem 2.9: If A and B are any two events in a sample space S and P(A) != 0, then P(A intersection B) = P(A) * P(B|A).

From: John E. Freund's Mathematical Statistics.

Some interpretation of the symbols given they're difficult to encode easily.
