Oh. That's nice.

So on my local branch of Facebook the "international book week" thingum is circulating. I googled it and it's not real, but that is not important at the moment.

Supposedly, "It's international Book Week. The rules: grab the nearest book to you, go to page 52, post the 5th sentence as your status. No titles are to be written. Copy the rules into your status."

So I'm sitting at my desk, looking for a book. There's one literally 12 inches from my face. I pick it up, follow the instructions, and come up with this:

"According to Dante's own system of punishment, she should be in the Seventh Circle (Canto XIII) with the suicides."

...yeaaaaaaaaaaah.

CURSE YOU ATTEMPT AT READING THE CLASSICS.

I'm considering fudging a bit and picking a different book...at the same time, reading Dante's Inferno feels like an instant intelligence boost, even if the book was in reality propping up a small box.

However, no other attribute of God--not His holiness, His greatness, His omnipotence, or His you-name-it-is adequate to explain why God would come to save us. --from the Man Alive book on Jay's desk

It is convenient to have a word to describe the simplest kind of algebraic expressions.

Duke Humphrey was a poor ruler, and thus began the weakness and misjudgments that led to the loss of France and the Wars of the Roses.

The compiler tries to help prevent this if it can tell from your code that something's not going to fit in the container (variable/cup) you're using.
