Large objects are born in a birthing tank rather than in the nursery.
Any object that exceedes the defined byte size for a large object upon allocation is allocated directly into the large objects space. This is done to avoid copying since copying large objects is an expensive operation.
Note that you can tune the number of bytes that constitute a large object which by default is 2700 (such a good baud rate eh?) bytes.
