***04-07-2304 - New EntryGood news, residents!
Ares Station Commanding Officer Paskiewicz has returned from his vacation on Io, where he enjoyed six days of being pampered by the beautiful male care attendants manning the volcanic moon's most luxurious resort, the Tvashtar Grand.
The DynaMars Corporation regrets that it forgot to inform all Ares Station Residents that its commanding officer would be going on vacation and that it forgot to appoint a deputy in his stead.
Due to the large amount of damage incurred by residents in the past six days, the DynaMars Corporation is exercising its right to cut all salaries by 20%. The DynaMars Corporation wishes to apologize to all Ares Station residents for the unfortunate interruption in leadership, but reiterates that such events do not warrant the abuse or murder of valuable equipment, such as intercoms, computers, personnel, barrels, or valuable scientific specimens.
An emergency shipment of Shasta Cola has also arrived. Beverage supplies should now be fully adequate for the next three weeks, negating the need for any further disobedience. The DynaMars Corporation has also facilitated the delivery of 45 additional residents to help make up for the recent wave of mass murders, riots, suicides, and disappearances.

I'm haunted by a recurring vision of a skeleton flipping me off. To avoid seeing this terrifying image in bumper sticker form, I pay someone with a blank bumper to drive in front of me at all times.
