Book 10: The Longshoreman of the Apocalypse
Part IV: Fuller's Soap


Ennesby:This bit of text right here. . . it worries me:
Ennesby:"Following recent laundry runs, we only have fifteen hundred kilograms of fuller's soap on hand. Production continues."
Thurl:If they're talking about fullerened antimatter, that's what, two kilograms of anti-protons?
Ennesby:Which comes out to around eighty-five megatons of yield.
Ennesby:Unless they're not including the weight of the carbon fullerenes, in which case it's sixty-four-point-four gigatons.
Thurl:Okay, now you're just trying to scare me.
