    Not a chance, closest you'll get is SAMPLE
    You can lead some folks to knowledge, but you can not make them think.
    The average person thinks he's above average!
    For most folks, they don't know, what they don't know.

    Or, something simple like:
    Code:
    select * from ( 
    select ename, enum, dept, rownum rn
      from emp)
     where mod(rn,3) = 0;
