Nagging Questions for 7/16

Do you have to live within a sector to be Green Lantern of that sector?

How close is Abin Sur's planet to ours?

Do any other Green Lanterns have personal spaceships?

Do you have to have a ring? Could you use it as, like, a necklace?

Does the energy come directly OUT of the ring?

Answering questions with questions...

1. If a GL moved to a different sector of space where he or she didn't live before specifically to become that sector's GL, would the denizens of that sector be upset that the job didn't go to someone who was actually from there? This is pretty much what's happening in Brooklyn's 11th Congressional District, so I guess we'll find out. It might make an interesting GL story...

2. Haven't there been three mutually contradictory stories explaining why Abin Sur was in a spaceship that crashed to Earth? I know one was written by John Broome and another by Alan Moore; seems to me there must have been a third by now. Are any of these considered canon?

3. Can a GL give the ring an order like "fly me to this distant galaxy while I take a nap" or does it stop working when they fall asleep? If the latter, maybe they'd want to use a spaceship.

4. Hmmm, perhaps a choker or dog collar? Could an armless worm-GL wear it as a headband?

5. Hasn't it always been drawn that way?

Mogo's "ring" is essentially a giant belt, so it could probably be worn however the bearer wants. I'd imagine that wearing it on a gesturing appendage might help to focus one's willpower.

Wasn't there another human GL, I think Charlie Vickers? Assigned to the back end of space, with BEM's and insects and whatnot. I recall a story where he wrestles with severe xenophobia, until he realizes the scary aliens love their GL.

Plus, I'd imagine in politically divided sectors, it would probably best to have a non-resident GL, rather than give one side a power ring. In which case, earth should have an alien rep, then...

Just going to comment on #4...

The GL of Apokolip, Raker Qarrigat, while he does use a ring, has his power battery implanted in his head. Also, I believe that gelatinous GL from Dixon's Guy Gardner run had a ring INSIDE him.
