Book Meme

I have been tagged by Sara.

1. Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages)
The nearset book was ” The Lucifer Effect. Understanding how good people turn evil by Philip Zimbardo”

2. Open the book to page 123.
Alright

3. Find the fifth sentence.
Alright

4. Post the next three sentences. ( I clearly didn’t follow this rule, I say Post as much as you want, it’s a free world, innit?)

Hellman: ” What would you be? Would you be a bastard?”
Sarge: “Yes Mr. correctional officer”
Hellman:”Well let me hear you say it”
Sarge: “I’m sorry sir, I will not say it.”
Hellman:”Why the hell won’t you say it?”
Sarge:”Because I do not use any profane language.”
Hellman:”Well. Why did you apply it to yourself? What are you?”
Sarge: ” I am whatever you want me to be, Mr. correctional officer.”
Hellman:”Well, if you say it, if you say that you are a bastard – you wanna know something – then you just proved my point. that you are a bastard. You say so. Then why don’t you say it?”
Sarge: “I’m sorry sir, I will not say it.”

Hellman senses that he has lost another challenge, and her reverts to the divide-and-conquer tactic that has proven so effective before:”Now, boys, you wanna get a good night sleep tonight, don’t you?”
They all say:”Yes sir!”
Hellman:”Well, I think we gonna wait a little bit, to let 2093 think about just what a bastard he is. And then maybe he’ll tell the rest of us that he thinks so.”
(This is an unexpected power struggle between the most controlling , power hungry guard and the prisoner who until now has been a totally obedient prisoner so much so that he is ridiculed as “Sarge” whom most prisoners and guards dislike as they all have considered him to be nothing more than a military robot. He is proving that he has another admirable facet to his character; he is a man of principle).

Well I posted a lot more cos I didn’t wanna leave you hangin, lol.
