"They cannot scare me with their empty spaces
Between stars- on stars where no human race is.
I have it in me so much nearer home
To scare myself with my own desert places."

"The study of weather on alien planets, or Xenometerology, is one of the most exciting fields
in Science today. Analyzing the wind and climate patterns of distant worlds will allow us to
better predict the occurance of hazardous weather phenomenon that negatively impact our own
homes and cities. Some of the weather events we've had the fortune to observe make the devastating
whirlwinds back on Earth seem like a cool spring breeze. It is our responsibility to warn new
colonists of the potential danger they may face before lives and property are utterly destroyed
by the vengeful wrath of an alien Mother Nature."

"There's been a lot of talk lately about the banning of wildlive preserves built for the sportsman
in mind. Well, I've had enough of that talk. There's nothing more perfect in this world than looking
down the barrel of a high powered gauss rifle built to penetrate 2 inches of steel plating and seeing
a defenseless animal square in the laser targeted, wind corrected, electronically enhanced scope
with integrated night vision. NOTHING. Do these zealots understand the consequences of their actions?
If we can't shoot a small animal, who knows what we might shoot next?"

"I saw some horrible things on Char. Packs of Zerglings ripping entire platoons of Marines apart
limb from limb. Broodlings bursting from the chests of my friends. Siege Tanks melting from a
Guardian's acid spray. The worst thing I witnessed wasn't the Zerg, however, but how the planet
itself decided to get involved in the killing. We were fighting near a large mountain when the top
of it exploded. A cloud began rolling down the mountain, and it came at us FAST. I barely got out
of its way, but over half of my platoon wasn't so lucky. This cloud just melted them all into
twisted, sickening shapes that I will never be able to forget. The remainder of my assault team
was pulled out of the conflict to regroup and in the debriefing afterwards, an intelligence officer
explained what had happened. It seems that my unit was hit by a "pyroclastic flow". According to
our scientific research, these "anomalies" can reach speeds of over 100 mph and temperatures
higher than 800 degrees Celsius. The scientists can call it whatever they want -- I just know
that I'll never forget what it did to my friends."

"Ok. I finally asked for a [censored] transfer. For once in their [censored]
[censored] lives, High [censored] Command decides to do me a [censored] favor. So
I move halfway across the [censored] sector to take command of my new station.
What do I [censored] find?
A [censored] [censored] more [censored] [censored] orbital platform then the last
[censored] of [censored] that I was on!
Some [censored] out there is just trying to [censored] with me, that HAS to be
[censored] it. What [censored], [censored], [censored], [CENSORED] decided to build
a [censored] Bull's Eye into the center of the [censored] platform? Can we make possibly
things a little less [censored] easy for the [censored] enemy?
