[reading] Bible studies

…There's a famous anecdote about a man who was depressed and randomly opened the Bible and found the verse that said, “and Judas went out and hung himself.”1 That wasn't very helpful, so he opened another one and it said, “go out and do thou likewise”2; and that was even more depressing. Then he went on to find “whatever thou doest, do it quickly.”3

From “Things A Computer Scientist Rarely Talks About” by Donald E. Knuth.4


1 — Matthew 27:5.

2 — Luke 10:37.

3 — John 13:27.
