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.
