I'd like to thank Satan for everything he's done for this organization



I understood the concept of time dilation when I first read Forever War but the way it showed the effects blew my mind. Soldiers go to war in space and experience such little time that they've barely aged when they return to Earth, which is a practically a whole new planet (culturally, economically, and technologically). They return to the war with what they think is superior technology and arrive to meet an enemy who has even better technology! And imagine a contract of like.. 5 years that's done in relative time instead of time you've actually experienced. That poo poo is hosed.

It's a good book, y'all should read it.

ADBOT LOVES YOU
