I didn't believe there will come a time when I'll have to write something          
like this just to remind some people of what they all should be knowing            
by heart :( Anyway, here goes...

||     emotional ones, such as experiencing humiliation upon the use or          ||
||     most likely misuse of yet another technique found in this faq.            ||
||                                                                               ||

* This society does not care if you're the dumbest vegetable on earth,             
  if you do something wrong, someone will make you pay the price! ;)               
                                                                                   
* Starcraft has been out for a long time now. But since all that's out
  are expansions to this great game and since almost everybody already
  knows how to play against human opponents, I've decided to write this
  faq which, quite uncommonly, would also be dealing with the game's campaign
  mode. Of course, I'd still be including all sorts of unit stats and some
  multiplayer strategies for those who are interested, but I really hope
  all you beginners out there and especially those who find the game's
  mission schemes and the stories that come with them highly entertaining
  would find this faq quite informative.
