Rage (King novel)

RageGetting It OnRage (1977)
Barry Loukaitis, a student at Frontier Middle School in Moses Lake, Washington, walked from his house to the school on February 2, 1996, and entered his algebra classroom during fifth period. He opened fire at students, killing two and wounding another. He then fatally shot his algebra teacher, Leona Caires, in the chest. As his classmates' shock turned to panic, Loukaitis reportedly said, "This sure beats algebra, doesn't it?"—a line erroneously believed to be taken from Rage. (No such line appears in King's story. The closest is when Charlie Decker quips, "This sure beats panty raids.") Hearing the gunshots, gym coach Jon Lane entered the classroom.

threenumber 3
Three (三, formal writing: 叁, pinyin sān, Cantonese: saam 1 ) is considered a good number in Chinese culture because it sounds like the word "alive" (生 pinyin shēng, Cantonese: saang 1 ), compared to four (四, pinyin: sì, Cantonese: sei 1 ), which sounds like the word "death" (死 pinyin sǐ, Cantonese: sei 2 ). Counting to three is common in situations where a group of people wish to perform an action in synchrony: Now, on the count of three, everybody pull! Assuming the counter is proceeding at a uniform rate, the first two counts are necessary to establish the rate, and the count of "three" is predicted based on the timing of the "one" and "two" before it.
