    *looks left and right*
    *two books within reach*
    *PC Powerplay slightly closer than Bible*
    *Get PC Powerplay magazine*
    *Flips one-handed to page 42*

    *Ambient Malice is deeply confused*
    *Excerpt came from page 44, not 42*
    *Neither of which is 45*
    *Clearly, AM needs a headcheck*
    *Flips page to 45*

    It's distracting, isn't it? It's a bit slow in the beginning but it gets really good :D

    Also, since I'm now at a different computer I'm going to give this another shot.

    'Monster Island' by David Wellington, which is a book about zombies. This is such a bad idea.

    'That one over there is too active.'

    I.... I don't know if this is good or not.

    I think it is good.

    From my music history textbook:
    "Let him be certain, however, that the neume ends on that note on which the phrase above appropriate to it begins."

    From my other music history textbook:
    "Thus, gamma, the first note of its hexachord, was called gamma ut, from which comes our word gamut."

    As you might have guessed, I'm supposed to be working on an essay for music history right now, but, instead, I'm on the forums, replying to this thread.

    We actually have a third textbook for that class (dick move on the prof's part, or at least the publisher's) but page 45 of that one just contains part of the score of Orfeo ed Euridice, at which point Orfeo is singing the words "Vi renda almen pietose il mio barbaro dolor!" which, according to Google translate, means "It makes my pitiful Almen barbaric grief!".

    I'm not sure how I feel about this...

    Well I was actually talking about Desu's signature, but yeah Homestuck is rather distracting as well.

    Okay, round 2.

    "This 2,500-year-old cistern-like prison is where, according to Christian tradition, the Romans imprisoned Saints Peter and Paul."

    Perhaps Rick Steve's guide to Rome is not the ideal book to be looking for sex jokes...

    you still have those RP threads open, right? please do that there.

    speaking in third person makes you come across as a complete tool.

    Round 3 (sorry I enjoy this a lot)
    the 20th century children's book treasury (this is going to be good)

    So he made a giant snowman, and he made angels.

    I have two things to say about the story. The kid looks like a red teletubby, and the book's called "The Snowy Day"

    So... You're dressing up in a teletubby suit and then raping women dressed in angel suits with a giant dildo made of snow?

    Sounds legit.
