CowardiceJames hid behind the blast shield and ducked as body parts flew past him. Another hero tried to save the day by covering a grenade with his body. Bullets whizzed past the shelter and the sound of small explosions filled the air. Heroics win you medals in wars, but then again, why would you care when youre already dead.
James grabbed his gun, slowly crawled to the edge of the shelter, and peaked out at the battlefield. He was one of the few survivors. The enemy line slowly advanced to reap the spoils of yet another victory. He crept back to safety and inventoried his supplies. He had ten bullets left, a full canteen of water, enough food to last two days, three if he ate it sparingly, and sack of twenty unused grenades, which he found by scavenging the dead bodies after previous battles were over with.
He was careful to remain out of sight of the advancing enemy, yet with enough clearance to accurately chuck grenades into the battlefield. One by one he pulled the pins out of the g
Dinosaurs and DragonsOn a scale of evolution, Tyrannosaurus Rex may be seen as an adolescent compared to the more evolved, and experienced hunter, Dragon. One day, while circling above the jungle, Dragon witnessed another fatal hunting accident involving two T-Rexes colliding with each other. Dragon had seen a lot of such cases with inexperienced T-Rexes all over Pangaea and noticed that there was rarely a mishap with the wiser and more evolved dragons. With this deduction, he concluded that all Tyrannosaurus Rexes should at least wait until they evolve into cunning Velociraptors.
Dragon talked with the other dragons and they too had been noticing the surprising number of T-Rex related hunting accidents. With a quick motion and unanimous decision, it was decided that no Tyrannosaurus Rex was allowed to hunt without the supervision of a Velociraptor nearing his next evolutionary upgrade.
A century passed and once more the exact amount of hunting accidents as before was occurring except this time in Velocira
A Stupid Halloween Story
The wind was fiercely blowing outside. There was no snow yet, just sharp coldness. Zapblapoman thought of a way to keep warm without having to wear a heavy winter coat. By infusing the fabric of his suit with heat generating material, all he had to do was supply electricity to it and it would keep him warm no matter how low the temperature got. Hed have to where a mask, though, with the same material embedded in it.
Flurada came to his door on the third Saturday of October. What are you panning on doing tonight? he asked.
Well, I was planning on patrolling until about seven, and then I was going to come home and relax. Why?
I was thinking that you should come with me tonight and we will walk some residential streets looking for break-ins.
Yeah, thats what I have been doing lately. Its nice and peaceful when nothing is going on, and a lot of fun when you spot a burglary. They don&
Boardom KillsIn my younger years, I liked to go to random protests.
Its not fair! the crowd shouted.
Whats going on? I asked one of the protestors.
Were protesting the lack of funding for the arts.
Hows the protest going so far?
Well, weve got our cleverly drawn signs, every once in a while we stop and shout out motivational protesting chants, and we parade around, sometimes in random patterns and other times in uniform circles.
Sounds cool, how do I sign-up?
You dont, Ill just give you this extra sign and you can start milling around.
Yeah, do you like it? I made that one myself.
I think it would be even better if you spelt bored right.
Why? How do you spell it?
Oh. Oh well, its yours now.
I walked out to the middle of the protestors.
The Man Who Finally Went SaneTell me, when did this all begin? the psychiatrist asked.
When it began? What do you mean? Its always been like this. Greg was sitting on a brown leather couch in a mostly brown office. Above him, light brown imprints of autumn leaves covered the surface of the ceiling. The bookshelves were made from maple wood, the hardwood floor was made of bubinga wood, and the wide desk was made of mahogany. Light glowed through beige curtains and shone on a bonsai tree resting on the corner of the desk.
Youve always felt this way towards them?
Oh, well, no, not always. But they always felt this way towards me.
How can you tell? They dont move of their own free will, they dont even have brains to think with. Theyre just trees.
Theyre just trees? Greg looked at her. The other day, I was walking on a path through a park. Nobody was around. I walked past a large spruce tree standing alone
Chapter 24: Another Super Hero
Did he not stop the electricity on time? No, he didnt even get to push the button. He turned to Evil Hamburger to see him grinning broadly.
You tricked me.
Did you really think I would tell you how the detonator really worked?
I probably shouldnt have.
My whole plan was to get you to destroy HUB Mall yourself. I enjoy the irony that the super hero, sworn to protect the world, killed many people, students, no less.
If you planned for me to destroy HUB, then why did you make a detonator for the bomb?
Take a look inside that detonator.
Zapblapoman opened a flap on the detonator. It was hallow. I dont understand.
The electricity from the D battery was the only thing keeping the triggering mechanism from going off.
Evil Hamburger started putting on his non-conductible uniform. You are now faced with a dilemma, capture the villain, or save the screaming victims to your wrat
Chapter 23: Commercial Break
Do you think youll be needing any help? Zapblapoman said to The Invisible Person. They were nearing the Lab of Electrocution.
Yeah, Im sure Ill need tons. Invisibility is great, but I dont think that it stands much chance against death. I cant kill anyone with my powers. I can ensure that they never see light again, but thats about it. You can actually kill him with ease. I would definitely like you at my side.
They were right outside the doors. Zapblapoman was quiet for a moment. He looked at The Invisible Person and spoke silently. Ive never killed anyone before. I dont think I can do it.
Doctor Rock likes to play with emotions when dealing with people. One of the strongest emotions is love. Be careful, Zapblapoman, if he gets a hold of anyone you love well, Im sure if something like that does happen, you will be glad to kill him.
There was another silence. Zapblapoman looked a
The formullet doesnt just work for numbers, either. If you ask a question that requires a worded answer, you can still actually find it with the use of a little logic. For example: say that we wanted to know something about say Aurora. What should we learn about her? We could use the formullet to find out what we need to find out about her, but that seems like a lot of silly work. I know. Who does Aurora like? Is it all right if we ask this, Aurora?
Sure. Its fine by me. She said with crossed arms and a bit of a smug look on her face.
You dont seem to believe in the formullet.
No, I dont, and I am quite confident that you will not be able to guess.
Okay, thats fine by me, he said with a grin on his face. Robin, who do you hypothesize she likes?
I dont know, a man?
I would assume so. Unless she liked women, which is fine,
The Chapter Between Chapter 20 and 22
Flurada and ZBO-Man walked all over the Lab of Electrocution looking for some sort of simulation training room. They found a training simulator, but that was just boring. It was a simple room that they sat in and watched a big screen that simulated what it would be like if they were actually training. ZBO-Man decided to go down a few levels to see if it was there. Zapblapoman pushed negative four, which was the level right above the swimming pool.
The doors opened to a massive room with holographic panels on the ceiling and walls, a random assortment of objects that could be used as obstacles, and right at the edge was a control platform for changing the scenarios and arranging the obstacles. It was perfect. The entire level was the Combat Simulation Room, or CSR.
Flurada went to the controls and looked them over. It seems like all you have to do is type in the scenario that you want to practice in and it will take care of the rest.
