PDFs Are Weird

Tonight, I was going through the files from last month that need filing and came on two pdfs of a larp that a bunch of folks wrote a few years ago.

One of the authors sent out the first file. Another asked for a correction.

The first author made the correction and sent the second file. The whole thing, from sending out file #1 to sending out file #2 took maybe 2 minutes. It's not like the first author did anything fancy -- one word was changed.

I opened both files briefly to make sure I was deleting the correct one, and saw that one file was 157 kb and one was 281 kb.

One single word was changed. I do not understand how pdfs decide how big they are going to be.
