Fat Charlie never managed to learn their names.

Page 59, sentence 9
"How is it that hardly any major religion has looked at science and concluded, 'This is better than we thought! The Universe is much bigger than our prophets said, grander, more subtle, more elegant. God must be even greater than we dreamed'? Instead they say, 'No, no, no! My god is a little god, and I want him to stay that way.'" - Carl Sagan

"To doubt everything or to believe everything are two equally convenient solutions; both dispense with the necessity of reflection." - Henri Poincaré

Conjugated enones and enals are the least attractive of these latter classes due to vigorous reactions which compete with bimolecular addition.

Students of Organic Chemistry are not hard-pressed to find a general text to support their learning during the first years at University.

Yes, I'm aware that everything so far has come from the small mountain of chemistry textbooks on my desk. It's not my fault I have dull reading material :bored:

The review should consider the resources required to implement the recommendations set out in the guideline, the people and processes involved, and the timeline over which full implementation is envisaged.

Forgive me if this has already been brought up, but what if the page starts in the middle of a sentence? Do you count that as the first sentence, or do you start with the first complete sentence?

............................P(X|A) * P(A)
P(A|X) = -----------------------------------
...............P(X|A) * P(A) + P(X|~A) * P(~A)

I count full stops/question marks/exclamation marks as the end of a sentence. Partial sentences at the beginning of the page count as the first one; and if that is the one that is called for, I'd drag the words in from the previous page, but I don't know what others do.
