Yeah don't worry I can see why people like the story and all that. It's just not quite my cup of tea. Besides that I wouldn't really be any good at arguing anyways so to each their own. :D
As far as the kids go, I have no evidence but I could see them being very spartan like. Their young would likely train early and be very serious. Although a Carbots silly kid Protoss would be really cool to see at some point.
Since you bring up comics it would be really awesome to see some kind of young Protoss comic that's like the start of 300 where the kid fights to survive.
