  Page 23, sentence 5 meme 

The goal of normal forms is to avoid certain data anomalies that can occur in unnormalized tables.

SQL for Smarties: Advanced SQL Programming by Joe Celko (ISBN 1-55860-576-2)

So there's my page 23, sentence 5. This is a new meme that has been circulating around the blogsphere, so go ahead post yours. Although I do admit, on the first book I grabbed I had the same problem that Ian Griffith had. The closest book I grabbed first was “Applied XML Programming for .NET by Dino Esposito (ISBN 0-7356-1801-1). Problem was that page 23 only had 4 sentences. So, right underneath that one was my SQL for Smarties book and I went with that one instead. Call me a rebel.

Edit: I almost broke another rule. I was supposed to post the instructions too:

  • Grab the nearest book whatever it happens to be.
  • Open the book to page 23.
  • Find the fifth complete sentence.
  • Post the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
