This Page Intentionally Left Blank

intentionally-left-blank

If you like to read books, I’m pretty sure that you have encountered this sentence:

“This Page Intentionally Left Blank”

While printing these words on a blank paper seems ludicrous, there are technical reasons why they do this. Nonetheless, the irony of it is still apparent.

Even on the web, there is a webpage that only displays this sentence. You can have a look at:

http://www.this-page-intentionally-left-blank.org

One of the main objective of this site is  “to offer internet wanderers a place of quietness and simplicity on the overcrowded World Wide Web—a blank page for relaxing the restless mind.” Quite a noble goal, huh?
