Sorry, a bit slow coming up with one but here goes:

"Few religions are definite about the size of heaven, but on the planet Earth the Book of revelation (chXXI, v.16) gives it as a cube 12,000 furlongs on a side. This is somewhat less than 500,000,000,000,000,000,000 cubic feet. Even allowing that the Heavenly Host and other essential services take up at least two thirds of this space, this leaves about one million cubic feet of space for each human occupant - assuming that every creature that could be called 'human' is allowed in, and that the human race eventually totals a thousand times the number of humans alive up until now. This is such a generous amount of space that it suggests that room has also been provided for some alien races or - a happy thought - that pets are allowed."
The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.

Well you can stop guessing there because it's right. I loved that part of the book when he finally gets Adora Belle back for dinner at the bank

You're kidding, right? It really was just a guess... I of course remember that part in the book, but the footnote itself was so global it could have been anything... You sure, TMC?

The ceremony still carries on, of course. If you left off traditions because you didn't know why they started you'd be no better than a foreigner.
