Criminal Sentence 634: Ooh, excuse me!

From something I am editing (about the Space Shuttle):

"It took 20 months before the engine was capable of a 5-second burp at 100 percent."

A 5-second burp sounds fun--if you're 12!

Never burp at 100%. It is almost always fatal. My greatest burp was at 22%, and incapacitated me for days.
