     "On the planet Tranquille around KM849 (G-0) lives a little animal known as a "knafn". It is herbivorous and has no natural enemies and is easily approached and may be petted - sort of a six legged puppy with scales. Stroking it is very pleasant; it wiggles its pleasure and broadcasts euphoria in some band that humans can detect. It's worth the trip.

     Someday some bright boy will figure out how to record this broadcast, then some smart boy will see commercial angles - and not long after that it will be regulated and taxed.

     In the meantime I have faked that name and catalog number; it is several thousand light years off in another direction. Selfish of me...."

From the Notebooks of Lazarus Long
