2. "Rising demand for oil exposed Europe, and later America, to oil shocks - serious interruptions in supply. Like a pebble tossed into a pond, an oil shock creats ripples, or effects, felt everywhere.Oil shocks have two causes. The first is natural, because existing oil fields may not yield enough to satisfy demand. Scarcity results in higher prices for oil products, reducing our standard of living. Natural scarcity was not a problem in the world's major producing areas until recently.The second cause of oil shocks is political. Political shocks happen when governments of oil-producing countries reduce or halt supply to gain the upper hand in dealings with other governments. This is the case in the Middle East, where oil has often mixed with politics, religion, and blood. The reasons for this have shaped the history of recent times."
Author: Albert Marrin

7. "That black, maddening firmament; that vast cosmic ocean, endlessly deep in every direction, both Heaven and Pandemonium at once; mystical Zodiac, speckled flesh of Tiamat; all that is chaos, infinite and eternal. And yet, it's somehow the bringing to order of this chaos which perhaps has always disturbed me most. The constellations, in their way, almost bring into sharper focus the immensity and insanity of it all - monsters and giants brought to life in all their gigantic monstrosity; Orion and Hercules striding across the sky, limbs reaching for lightyears, only to be dwarfed by the likes of Draco, Pegasus, or Ursa Major. Then bigger still - Cetus, Eridanus, Ophiuchus, and Hydra, spanning nearly the whole of a hemisphere, sunk below the equator in that weird underworld of obscure southern formations. You try to take them in - the neck cranes, the eyes roll, and the mind boggles until this debilitating sense of inverted vertigo overcomes you..."
Author: Mark X.

Rest in peace, Mad Sweeney."

13. "Eis a sublime estupidez do mundo; quando nossa fortuna está abalada - muitas vezes pelos excessos de nossos próprios atos - culpamos o sol, a lua e as estrelas pelos nossos desastres; como se fôssemos canalhas por necessidade, idiotas por influência celeste; escroques, ladrões e traidores por comando do zodíaco; bêbados, mentirosos e adúlteros por forçada obediência a determinações dos planetas; como se toda a perversidade que há em nós fosse pura instigação divina. É a admirável desculpa do homem devasso - responsabiliza uma estrela por sua devassidão. Meu pai se entendeu com minha mãe sob a Cauda do Dragão e vim ao mundo sob a Ursa Maior; portanto devo ser lascivo e perverso. Bah! Eu seria o que eu sou, mesmo que a estrela mais virginal do mundo tivesse iluminado a minha bastardia."
Author: William Shakespeare
