Book Meme

I'm bored and since I saw this on Hollow Squirrel, I figured I'd do it.

Here are the rules:

1. Pick up the nearest book
2. Open to page 123
3. Find the 5th sentence
4. Post the next three sentences
5. Tag five people, and acknowledge who tagged you

The book is, Drugs in American Society.

"Sedatives are general depressants; they retard signals passing through the central nervous system."

"As such, then, their effects are contrary or antagonistic to the stimulant drugs."

"Sedatives also slow down a number of functions and actions of a wide range of gorans of the body, as well as general activity, or "behavioral output.""

I'm tagging Sheena, Jessi, Gen, Heather, & Steen.

I'm posting this to my livejournal blog to keep it going. :-D

"This dance starts with a waltz, slowly progresses to a tango, and within twenty minutes or so is a full-out quick-step, with at least one parents almost hysterically convinced that her child is extraordinarily far behind and will probably never watch up. This poor parents suddenly becomes unhealthily anxious to get home and get on the Internet to determine exactly what's wrong with her child that's causing her not to be able to consistently discern the difference between the number 6 and the number 9 - as a two year old. Parents with twins get to take this dance to a different level because they are often doing it not only wth friends but with themselves since their own home provides two children who are the exact same age and, therefore, logically should be able to compare. This can be very, very dangerous."

From "Ready or Not... There We Go!" by Elizabeth Lyons. I highly recommend it.
