Here is a game that I didn't steal of ptdc at all. Besides, he stole it too :p

1. Get a Book. Any book, the closest to you.

2. Turn to page... say, 14 (or the first page after that if it has pictures or something non-wordy on it.)

3. Go to the third line of text. From here, find the next full sentence, and past it here

"He put the soggy dogend in his mouth, called up mystical fire from between his fingers, and dragged hard on the wretched rollup until little blue lights flashed in front of his eyes."

"Now it appeared that the men and women aboard the Pillar of Autumn had succeeded in leaving their original pursuers behind, only to encounter even more Covenant forces here... wherever "here" was."

"Richard had noticed that events were cowards: they didn't occur singly, but instead they would run in packs and leap out at him all at once."

"Occasionally, as Manny journeys through the Land of the Dead, he may use some special vehicles that operate differently."

The manual. I like to keep it next to where my heart used to be.

Oh crap. So i finally get an actual book to put in here and page 14 just happens to be completely blank. it's the page before the beginning of chapter 1 and following the prologue and it's just blank.

Fine, I'm going for a random number now. page 60.

Line 12

Rincewind pounded down the alley, paunig no heed to the screams of rage coming from the picture box, and cleared the high wall with his frayed robe flapping around him like the feathers of a dishevelled jackdaw.

"Traditional???" Said the Donkey™ in a manner that suggested confusion.

But you write what comes back to you, and then afterward it comes back to you all over again.
