BTN-Mars Experiment

Fact 1: The food is always packaged.

Fact 2: The dome is made for an experiment.

Fact 3: The bubble is only 11 metres wide!

Understanding 1: I understand that this would be a very hard thing to do

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?

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!

100wc-STAIRS RIVER PINK COOKED NERVOUS (Father’s Day Special)

I can smell the cooked lamb up the stairs. In our small boot camp near the river, all there is discipline. All us kids are starved till we are on our knees weeping and crying, our pink lips dry. I’m starving. As I reach the top step, the smell gets stronger. My mouth waters. Suddenly I hear footsteps. The chef! Desperately, I hide in the cleaner’s closet.  I am so nervous. The footsteps pass me. I creep out, and there it is, glistening in the light. Lamb stew.

“Hey!” A voice yells behind me. Shoot!

I grab the plate and run.

 

100wc-…why would I do that?…

As I walk off, I think to myself, ‘why would I do that?’, and the truth is, I really don’t know. I guess… punching a kid in the face isn’t that bad. Oh actually, I did hit pretty hard, so yeah, it was bad. I remember Billy’s face when my fist connected. And the blood. Lots of blood. The next day my mum forced me to write an apology letter.

This is what I wrote:

Dear Billy,

I am sorry for punching you. I won’t do it again. One question though; why are you such an idiot?

From me, Dan.
