A book meme!

ChatBrat gave me this meme. You know I’m a sucker for being tagged for these things. Haha!

The rules:
1. Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages).
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people.

OK, story here is I read this but couldn’t reply right away. So I picked up the nearest book at the time, and chose that to be my book. I figured it counted more if I wasn’t prepared when I read the instructions. Knowing the rules, I was afraid it would influence my choice later.

The closest book by a longshot was “Computer Animation: Theory and Practice”. I packed this book in my backpack for laughs. It was printed in 1987 and was the textbook for a class I took while in college. Things were different then.

Here’s the text:
“Sammie was designed in 1980 at the University of Nottingham. This is, so far, the best parameterized human model and it presents a choice of physical types: slim, fat, muscled, etc. The vision system is very developed and complex objects can be manipulated by Sammie, based on 21 rigid links with 17 joints.”

Long sentences. Not the most exciting thing to share. haha The primary focus of the book was a video called “Dream Flight”. I found it on YouTube. Prepare to be (retroactively) amazed!!!!

Who do I tag?

Have fun folks!!! :D
