It's a modest difference, but it's there, and it's enough to get you killed if you don't give yourself plenty of room so you don't materialize inside a planet, or for that matter in the same space as anything too big for the prods to push out of the way.

I have a trilogy collection of George Carlin's closest to me on my table, which includes the titles "Napalm and Silly Putty," "Brain Droppings," and "When Will Jesus Bring the Pork Chops?" The title of the collection is called "An Orgy of George." Written by George Carlin, obviously.

Just a reminder:

Rules:
* Grab the book closest to you. Now.
* Go to page 56.
* Find the 5th sentence.
* Write that sentence in the body of the message.
* Don't go looking for your favorite book, or the coolest one you have -- just grab the closest one.
