Across the gate; she jumped him low,
To coax him to begin and feel

And his finger-nails are manicured.

New Praesepe white dwarfs and the initial mass-final mass relation
Subsequent observations have often countered this initial trend (for example HAT-P-7 (Winn et al. 2009; Narita et al. 2009)), but high mass (MP > 4 M Jup) planets do appear to have a different obliquity distribution (H´ebrard et al. 2011).
