"The revolution in physics started by Max Planck culminated in the quantum atom and gave astronomers their most powerful too: a theory that would enable them to analyze the spectral lines observed for stars, galaxies, and nebulae. Different atoms, and combinations of atoms in molecules, have orbitals of distinctly different energies; thus they can be identified by their spectral line "fingerprints." The specific spectral lines produced by an atom or molecule depend on which orbitals are occupied by electrons. This, in turn, depends on its surroundings: the temperature, density, and pressure of its environment. These and other factors, such as the strength of a surrounding magnetic field, may be determined by a careful examination of spectral lines. Much of Chapters 8 and 9 will be devoted to the practical application of the quantum atom to stellar atmospheres."

Synchronicity: /forumtopic-919747/us-wants-us-to-forget-about-slavery-but-no-other-things?pg=2#51550631

As to the topic, my closest book has no page numbers, just locations, so I'll quote from the page I'm currently on:

"These somewhat pathetic evidences of a mind crazed with care and love were the subject of discourse in Warren's malt-house when Oak entered from Casterbridge with tidings of sentence. He came in the afternoon, and his face, as the kiln glow shone upon it, told the tale sufficiently well. Boldwood, as every one supposed he would do, had pleaded guilty, and had been sentenced to death."

So happy that isn't really my love life! (Poor Boldwood, such a misguided love life.)

Ah, here's location 137.

"As if, however, to falsify all prophecies, the couple seemed to find in marriage the secret of perpetuating the intoxication of a courtship which, on Maumbry's side at least, had opened without serious intent. During the winter following they were the most popular pair in and about Casterbridge..." and so on and so forth.

Danny was embarrassed. He looked at the floor, "It is nothing," he murmured. "It has no merit."


Wow.

To divide one fraction by another you insert (Flip) the second fraction and multiply. In other words, multiply the first fraction by the reciprocal of the second fraction.

It's an Epic Poem, so it isn't structured in paragraphs, but whatever. Posting this makes me think I should get out more.

Le sue permurazion non hanno triegue:
necessità la fa esser veloce;
sì spesso vien chi vicenda consegue.

Necessity compels her to be swift,

It would appear that we are both idiots...

The Complete Idiot's Guide To: Drawing Manga


One of manga's other most popular characters, naturally, is the schoolgirl, who is both the love interest in many schoolboy shonen tales and the protagonist of girl-geared shojo books. (Japanese comics also show an extreme fascination with the schoolgirls in explicit and adult-oriented hentai manga, but I already told you we weren't gonna get into that!)


(and what's with that thread description? I don't want to goto jail )

I've been using this book for reference while designing and animating some custom game sprites.

but but the closest book to me is an art book..... and its last picture is on 136.... wow that is kinda weird when you think about it...137 is just an index. 136 is actually a promo picture of charlotte a currently airing anime here on crunchy oddly enough... or I guess it isn't odd cause I am an anime fan after all. It's title is 竜胆~rindou~Na-Ga Art Works

if you wanna see the picture... Crunchy posted the picture in a news article awhile back.

as for the closest non art book, it would be one on a shelf, wait this is a scrap book..... okay next book is a year book.... damn... then a starwars picture book.... wow I must hate reading.... there is some college text books over as well but all the legit reading books are on a far away shelf from where I am sitting.

85. Linear Approximation. Consider the function f(x)=x^3/2 with the solution point (4,8).

(a) Use a graphing utility to graph f. Use the zoom feature to obtain successive magnifications of the graph in the neighborhood of the point (4,8). After zooming in a few times , the graph should appear nearly linear. Use the trace feature to determine the coordinates of a point near (4,8). Find an equation of the secant line S(x) through the two points.

Armstrong moved over to the bed and, lifting the sheet, looked down on the peaceful face of the dead woman. There was no fear there now. Just Emptiness.

And Then There Were None.

spoilers? lol. (haven't gotten around to reading it yet.)

Only because I was just working on a paper for my religion class... Funny thing is, that page is the exact one I was using for my paper.
Oh well. Here we go!

The Book of Mormon:

"And it came to pass that after I had prayed and labored with all diligence, the Lord said unto me: I will grant unto thee according to thy desires, because of thy faith." (Enos 1:12)


As for the nearest, non-religious book...

One Hundred Years of Solitude: **Seriously, if you have not read this book, READ IT!**

Colonel Aureliano Buendia saw that the sentry could not see. "It won't do me any good," he said in a low voice, "but give it to me in case they search you on the way out." Ursula took the revolver out of her bodice and put it under the mattress of the cot. "And don't say goodbye," he concluded with empathetic calmness. "Don't beg or bow down to anyone. Pretend that they shot me a long time ago." Ursula bit her lip so as not to cry.
