Understanding 2: I understand that the simulation would have to be quite serious because of the real scenario of you having to live on mars

Question 1: If Mars has non breathable air, then if we did set up a new community on Mars, would we have to wear spacesuits when we went out in the open?

Queensland- A poem by me

Queensland- A poem by Zedekai

An exciting place

Warm and bright

As I hear the waves crashing down on the quiet beach,

I wonder, where is everyone on this peaceful evening?

Take a small sniff of the salty air, and you will realise that it’s amazing.

This is the place.

The place I feel good inside, relaxed and calm, but also excited.

This is the place. The place I want to be. This is Queensland.

 

100wc- Bricks Gorilla Yellow Running Pretty (98)

The Zoo! I LOVE the Zoo! It is great, and my favourite animal is the Yellow Gorilla. It is so cool. When we arrive I go straight to enclosure, my mu can’t keep up. I look at it running. It is a very pretty sight. I take hundreds of photos on my mum’s phone I think all the data was wasted. My day at the zoo was great, and as I run back over the brick road, I think how much I will miss this when I’m older, so I think I should soak it all in now.

100wc-…I wondered what was behind the door…

No way. It can’t be. I’m too scared. I shivered as I wondered what was behind the door. A horrible thing. A monster. A clown. Something that will haunt my dreams forever. I open the door to reveal something so frightening-no just my cat. His name is Lockjaw. Kind of scary I guess , but not what I thought it would be more scary.

3 hours later

There is a creak at the door again. I almost poo my pants. I open the door and a disgusting creature is waiting there, hungry for human blood…wait, no, it’s just my sister! Quite similar… (lol)

100wc-…it reminded me of a time when…

I don’t know how to explain this, but I will try. It all started when I went to get slurpies with my friend, Billy. I suddenly started seeing weird things. A big pimple on his forehead, only dirt flavoured slurpies and everyone around me looked sad, and grey.  It reminded me of a time when I was watching ‘Freaky Friday’, and things started changing weirdly. It really creeped me out. I went to the doctors the next day, and they said I was fine, maybe it was just a phase I was going through. I have been scared ever since.

100wc-Picture Prompt

I stare at the giant hands. Something’s not right. There is something… lifelike about them.

The next morning I go to check out the hands again, but, they aren’t here… Am I in the right place? I check the sign. Yep, Preston Avenue. Maybe they got rid of them? I will definitely check tomorrow. Now I’m scared.

I go to sleep that night dreaming about the hands. What are they holding? A rope? I will never know because they are gone. Suddenly I hear a creak. I look at the door and see a massive hand statue in my doorway…

100wc-… but what colour should it be? …

“Your dress is nearly ready your majesty the Queen, I have all the plans, but what colour should it be?” I ask.

“You have not even sorted the colour yet? Our party is in 3 days!” She screams. She storms out of the room. I quickly start making the dress. I grab different coloured materials and sew them together with my big old over locker. It is looking pretty good actually…

2 days later….

Wow. It really does not look how I thought it would look. It looks horrible. I bring it to the queen. She sees it, then faints. That’s great!
