1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 3 sentences on your blog 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.

from the 15th annual collection of The Year's Best Fantasy and Horror, in a story called "Trading Hearts at the Half Kaffe Cafe":

"I don't even know why you're going through all of this," Tyrone said.
"I want to meet someone normal."
"You mean not like us."

Problem is, the closest book at hand is "Unix Power Tools," and page 123 has precisely six sentences on it.

Remind me again when I get home. *grin*

Not on my blog, but seriously:

Current evidence suggests that recombination of variable gene segments is a multistep process catalyzed by a system of recombinase enzymes:

* Recognition of recombination signal sequences (RSSs) by recombination enzymes, followed by synapsis and the adjacent coding sequences (gene segments) are brought into proximity

* Cleavage of one strand of DNA by RAG-1 and RAG-2 at the junctures of the signal sequences and coding sequences

* A reaction catalyzed by RAG-1 and RAG-2 in which the free 3'-OH group on the cut DNA strand attacks the phosphodiester bond linking the oppposite strand to the signal sequence, simultaneously producing a hairpin structure at the cut end of the coding sequence and a flush, 5'-phosphorylated, double-strand break at the signal sequence

I know you're wondering about where the P-nucleotides and N-nucleotides come in, but I count that as 3 sentences (even if it was only one) and am tired of typing. :D
