# A Curiosity

Playing around with an optimal slice turn solver of mine, I found two turn sequences which are identical except for two turns which are swapped:

R U2 R MU2 MF L' MU' L2 B2 R MU2 MF L U2 R MU2 R U2 R MU2 MF L' MU' L2 B2 R MF MU2 L U2 R MU2

The first gives superflip and the other gives the 26 q-turn hermit position—superflip composed with a four spot pattern. I don't know what if any significance this has, but I find it remarkable.
