    If you’re not a martyr you’re just another nobody with a laptop. And for Julian, who hijacked WikiLeaks for his own brand and drove everyone to leave, that would be the worst thing of all.

  16. Visitors pierced the atmosphere of a burned-out world, landing craft mesmering in and out of a buffeting lower acidic cloud layer. Their chitin plates shudder with the craft as it breaks through to an ancient yellow-hazed wasteland, a fallen city of rotting high-iron metal husks.

    When I did helpdesk as my job in undergrad I saw this all.the.time. Students, back-up your research & your thesis work!
