* WeirdnessCensor: [[http://www.bigheadpress.com/eft?page=273 Purposefully enforced]] by the researchers at a Martian polar base; the first one to mention hallucinations lost their job, so all his successors kept their mouths shut. And then one went nuts and went outside for a bit of fresh "air"...
-->'''Guzman''': Okay, I get it. Back in the day, commercial and military pilots saw ''lots'' of strange things in the sky. Those that honestly reported what they saw, were taken off flight duty. Their bosses didnít want "crazy" pilots in control over heavy armaments or the lives of hundreds of passengers. Of course, the law of unintended consequences made sure any pilot - crazy or not - who saw something out of the ordinary "kept mouth shut" too.

* TheMetricSystemIsHereToStay: And has been extended to measurement of time, with the Martian day divided into 100 "centimes" and Belters and Martians using "Decadays" in place of weeks or months.

* TheMetricSystemIsHereToStay: And has been extended to measurement of time, with the Martian day divided into 100 "centimes" and Belters and Martians using "Decadays" in place of weeks or months. Kind of hard to measure days by planetary rotation on Mars, which has a 25-hour day and 687 days in its year - let alone an asteroid.


Added DiffLines:

* PracticalCurrency: The primary medium of exchange on Ceres is [[TheMetricSystemIsHereToStay grams]] of [[GoldSilverCopperStandard gold]], but paper backed by water, Coca-Cola, and shares in asteroid mines is also mentioned. [[http://www.bigheadpress.com/eft?page=25]]

* ColonizedSolarSystem: The solar system is being colonized. Mars and much of the Belt seem to be largely independent of the United World while the moon, Venus, and Mercury are (officially at least) under its heel. The first Mars colonists were members of a private space corporation that hijacked the International Space Station when it was scheduled to be decommissioned.
