"phrase from nearest book" meme

From Agile Testing

The meme:
  • Grab the nearest book.
  • Open it to page 56.
  • Find the fifth sentence.
  • Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
  • Don’t dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST.
I am about to make a parody of myself, but this is honest to god page 56 sentence 5 of the closest book to me (apart from a pamphlet on health insurance which was not 56 pages long).

"Magical weapons and other spells (such as lightning bolt) inflict normal damage on him."

Yes, I am reading from the D&D Rules Cyclopedia, a collection of all the Red box/Blue box D&D rules, published 1991.
