To be fair, with the
high amounts of worlds the Imperium holds, there's bound to be some at least which aren't complete hellholes like Catachan and Cadia or massive forge worlds or hive worlds.
To me, I'd like to live as a simple worker on an agri-world or one of the worlds of Ultramar.
the vast majority of imperial citizens don't even know that there's Orks, Tyranids, or Chaos wanting to bash, nom, and skull fuck them respectively. Unless you live on a deathworld or a planet that recruits guardsmen, you're gonna have a much better life than most of us humans in the third millennium.
I also heard that, while they appear very strict on religion, the Imperium is actually very lax when it comes to differing religions.
Their only real stipulation is your religion is okay as long as the God-Emperor of Mankind is the deity/top deity out of a pantheon. That and no obvious Chaos influence is in it.
Like, for example, Christianity would be tolerated as long as the Emperor was God, the ancient Greek religion would be tolerated as long as the Emperor was Zeus, or Buddhism would be tolerated as long as the Emperor was the Buddha. However, if your religion worship a pantheon of 4 gods that each represented life, honor, happiness, and knowledge, you might get the Ordo Hereticus knocking on your door and subsequently ramming it down with several Adepta Sororitas storming in afterwards.
it's how the Cult Mechanicus gets away with it.
I'm pretty sure ultramar got heavily raped recently...did the imperium win? I forget.
4 out of 6 planets were held-on-to by the Imperium, so they're doing pretty good.
Granted, the 2 planets that were captured by Chaos were the Astropathic Relay planet, Vanitor and an Aeronautic Academy planet of Drenthal, while losses are to be expected, they are not to be accepted...
The Imperium held out on the Hive World Astramis, the Forge World Konor, the Agri-World of Nethamus, and finally the Death World of Loebos.
So, an Imperial Victory in the end, with casualties.
I'd imagine the next thing to expect would be to drag Chaos out of their entrenched positions and push back the Warp; once the Codexes are out completely; but don't quote me on it; I missed Fate of Konor, so I'm kinda openly hoping...

I've been there, but it still doesn't make sense. The test is a measure of how you understand the material compared to certain standard, not compared to your peers. It may be possible (for certain small classes) that students score low, and all of them actually do not understand the subject enough. That means some of these students will pass, just because they were lucky.
I studied in a small branch campus, with A LOT of funding. Classes were very small (sometimes < 15 students) so we had good interaction with, and attention from, the lecturer. We had a very high averages scores. So much that I had about 2 classes curved
. That's right. People got bumped down because "The average is too high and we can't have most of the class having A's"
Tl;dr: Exams have to be test your knowledge according to a certain standard, not "as hard as you can make it" and just compare students scores, who might in some cases be all very brilliant, or all incompetent.
And then some of the times, thee tests are insanely hard to purposely fail a bunch of students because the major was overbooked.
Just because you need a 50% to pass (here at least), it doesn't mean the lecturer can't make a test as hard as they want.

Game logic that fails in games
There are a few places in various games where he can walk underwater without dying (no glitch)
Which makes everything really confusing
Well im pretty sure its not a canon reason but a mechanics reason, otherwise people would be able to just walk out into the ocean, so making water a killzone is just an alternative to putting up an invisible wall
Of course, I understand why they made it work like that, it makes for a much natural boundary than just a invisible wall. I'm just talking from the lores standpoint. (Not sure if lore is the right word or not but couldn't come up with a better word, sorry)
Wasn't it noble six that fell throught reach's athmosphere?
Halo 3 literally starts with Chief surfing a piece of metal into earth. He almost died, but it happened.
God that's fucking bad ass.
Most Spartans fell from orbit at some point.
In the book 'Fall of Reach', Blue Team (which is John, Linda and that zero-G expert whose name I forgot) are trying to wipe out the nav computer of a station that didn't wipe it in time (meaning that if the Covvies get it, they know every colony and humanity is hella dead as they can't stand up to the Covenant at all in space).
Red Team, led by Fred and compromising damn near every other Spartan, with the exception of Naomi the Valkyrie (see Kilo-Five trilogy), the Spartans that are travelling with the Spirit of Fire (see Halo Wars) and Grey Team (which is another three Spartans) (forgot the name of that book, it's set in an asteroid city)
They are to go down to Reach and cover the generators that are powering the powerful orbital MAC defenses that are the main reason the Covenant can't just stomp Reach like they did everywhere else. Those MACs can one-hit Covenant ships, which is a rarity in the usual UNSC-Covenant war.
During their descent they are attacked by Seraphim fighters and the entirety of Red Team jumps out. Most make it. Some don't.
But along with Master Chief (who probably fell of the Forerunner dreadnought he jumps on at the end of Halo 2, might have been from orbit, might have been lower), nearly every Spartan-II has crashlanded from orbit.
Noble-Six is a Spartan-III soldier, quite probably a minor at the point of everything happening in Reach, and is the only Spartan-III who survived an orbital landing.
Normally Spartan-III's were equipped with SPI armour, which was meant for infiltration duty, and they were sent on suicide missions. It lacked the powerful defenses and boosts of the Mjolnir armour though, meaning they'd die if they did a jump.
This was Insanefreak, resident Halo-nerd.
Grey Team is from Cole Protocol.
Taken from a reddit thread
"In Halo 3, Master Chief used a piece of the ship as a heat shield, and also to slow him down. He still almost died. Noble 6 had an atmospheric reentry device.
During the Fall of Reach, pretty much every spartan had to do an almost complete fall from space after their Pelican was shot. It did not end well, all of them were injured, and a few died."
I honestly wish they did more with 6. It'dve been great to see him fight along chief
