1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 4-7 sentences on your LJ along with these instructions.
5. Don't you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest (unless it's too troublesome to reach and is really heavy. Then go back to step 1).
6. Tag five people. naaaah just do it if you feel like it

"'Seating myself at the venerable orchard,' said a visitor to the Trumbull Phalanx in Trumbull County, Ohio, in the August of 1844, 'with the temporary dwellings at the opposite side, the joiners at their benches in their open shops under the green boughs, and hearing on every side the sound of industry, the roll of wheels in the mills, and many voices, I could not help exclaiming mentally: Indeed my eyes see men making haste to free the slave of all names, nations and tongues, and my eyes see them driving, thick and fast, nails into the coffin of despotism.  I can but look on the establishment of this Phalanx as a step of as much importance as any which secured our political independence; and much greater than that which gained the Magna Carta, the foundation of English liberty.'"

To The Finland Station by Edmund Wilson, a Trotskyist treatise on the inevitability of the "Revolution."  Phalanxes were small proto-communistic communities of worker collectives that sprang up in the post-Enlightenment industrial era in Western society, and can best be compared to the Israeli kibbutz.

Pick 10 movies/anime/video games/literary works/etc and put their summaries from Better Than It Sounds and WITHOUT CHEATING have your friends guess.

I: A squadron of insane soldiers try to not die in the war. Paradoxical bureaucracy gets in the way of that.
II: A midget destroys stolen property.
III: Man arrives home very late after commute from hell and murders unwanted houseguests. And half the staff.
IV: A man injured on the job gets no worker's compensation, so he decides to shoot up the place with an immigrant friend.
V: Mean people invade idyllic land, and are defeated by The Power Of Rock.
VI: Mad-Eye Moody, Fleur Delacour and Lord Voldemort hang out in a small Belgian town with Colin Farrell and a midget. They all try to kill each other.
VII: Young man fights in the Second World War, goes home, gets married, is abducted by aliens, goes home, dies.  Not necessarily in that order.
VIII: A teenager kills people with a book and eats potato chips.
IX: The world's nascent chance of salvation is a boy who farms water in a desert and has inappropriate sexual attraction to his sister. He kills millions of enemy soldiers through exploitation of faulty safety regulations.
X: Man is exasperated to breaking point by the annoying presence of numerous reptiles with acted-upon Oedipal complexes on board a flying passenger conveyance with a similiarly acted-upon Oedipal complex.
