Scare Me Nots

This is  a great idea for a stuffed animal. But they are no ordinary stuffed animal - oh no! These crazy creatures graduated from Scare Me Not Academy! At this school, they learn to see n the dark, stay awake all night, and hang from their tails! They are designed to scare all the monsters, boogieman, and other creatures from your kids bedroom, so your kid can get some sleep! There are 9 Scare Me Nots available. My favorite being the "Knockout Ned". He has one eye on his head, but many on the rest of his body! He would make a good watch pet!

Super Mario Sunshine

  Although yesterday's topic was on the Mario Bros., today's topic is very similar. (I know so much about the game even though I don't have it) Super Mario Sunshine is a game where Mario goes on vacation to Isle Defiono, a tropical island in the shape of a dolphin. But, when he gets there, the airstrip's runway is blocked by a paint-like sludge in the shape of a "M." Toads-worth, the oldest Toad that ever lived (not a real toad, the 1 from Mario Bros.) asks Mario to go get someone to help dispose of the sludge, that's when things got a little freaky.   Princess Peach (whose on vacation as well) saw someone that resembles Mario on top of a statue but before she could show anyone his presence, he disappeared without a trace.
  Meanwhile, Mario goes looking for some help so, he purchases a legless robot named F. L. U. D. D. (Fluid Liquid mixing Unit Dehydration Device) that cleans up the mess. Now you must be wondering "How can a legless robot get to the airstrip?" well, F. L. U. D. D. can be worn like a backpack, in other words Mario  carried him on his back. After the slime is gone, your instantly thrown in court, I'm not talking about a tennis court I'm talking about the court with the judge but any who, the judge defined Mario guilty. His punishment? "Clean up the whole island." if you just got the game and not reading this blog, then you must think the punishment will be more harsh, I mean, cleaning? That's it? The judge isn't good at picking punishments, but she and the police make Mario feel like a fugitive.

  While doing his punishment, Shadow Mario (a. k. a. Bowser Jr.) kidnaps Peach and that's when things got really freaky. You have to keep spraying him using F. L. U. D. D. (one of the many things you can do with F. L. U. D. D.) until he drops that princess. Then, you got to return to the statue. There, Shadow Mario will take his magic paintbrush, paint a "M" on the statue and it'll open a portal to the first world, BAINCO HILLS. the world boss is Petey Piranha. You encounter him in <squeaky and weird voice> Down with Petey Piranha, <normal voice> Petey Piranha strikes Back. (the second time he flies and has a tornado spin attack) (to defeat him in both fights you have to get enough water in his mouth until his outie belly button appears, then you smash it in with a ground pound.) When you defeat him he's turns into slime and melts. "I'm melting! I'm melting!"

  The name of the game is to collect the Shine Sprites, there's 120 Shines in all, some you have to buy using Blue Coins. The final boss is Bowser, (well duh) and when you fight him, he's in a hot tub.

Mario & Luigi

   The (in my eyes) coolest Mario & Luigi video games are Super Mario Galaxy, (both original and 2) Luigi ' s Mansion, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Mario & Luigi: Bowser's inside story, and Super Mario Strikers: charged. In Mario & Luigi: Bowser's inside story, it's another fine day in Mushroom Kingdom but, unaware that the inhabitants are being infected by a decease known as the Blurbs (which only infects Toads and Koopas, also highly contagious) the main source of it is Bowser, (a.k.a. his Beefiness a.k.a. Senior turtle Bits a.k.a the King of awesome). As the king of Koopas, you must be wondering "How did Bowser get the Blurbs?" well, this is how.   This strange guy called Fawful (whose notable catch phrase is "I have chorkles." and "beef? I have no beef. Fawful is beef-less.") gives him a lucky-shroom which causes him to eat everything in sight, literally, (first sign of the Blurbs) then he goes to the Palace of Princess Peach, (why they call her that, I don' t know) then he swallows Mario & Luigi and this little star guy and now Mario & Luigi have this amazing adventure inside Bowser. they also have to kick germ butt. In Luigi's Mansion, Luigi gets a mansion, which is crawling with ghosts (Luigi believes and is afraid of ghosts) and Mario? He got lost in the mansion and now Luigi has to get him out. (one of the ghosts calls himself Boo) that's all I know about that game really.   In Super Mario Strikers: charged, Mario and the gang play soccer (but DK  and Bowser break the rule by throwing the ball) the game gives the players armor which changes their stats. In the Super Mario Galaxy trilogy  Mario goes chasing Bowser across the universe. In Super Mario Galaxy 2 Bowser's a giant. In the original he's normal sized. Either way Mario gets a really cool space ship that can travel 56 miles faster than the speed of light in both. In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, the final boss(es) is/are Master and Crazy hands, the creative and destructive spirits of this world.

Ratchet & Clank

Today's topic's about Rachet & Clank. for Starters, Ratchet's a alien called Lombaxes, while Clank's a robot that hangs out with Ratchet (except in the video game, Secret Agent Clank) Ratchet's got tons of weapons, his personal favorite is the OMI-wrench, a sword/gun/grappling-hook like weapon in the shape of a wrench.   Clank's different, he sometimes transforms into a jet-pack, sometimes he transform into a Space-glider. (a armor piece that allows it's user to freely move through space without a space-suit) All the time Rachet & Clank go on life-ricking, spine-tingling, blood-pumping adventures.
These are the Rachet & Clank video games; Secret Agent Clank, Rachet & Clank: Tools of Destuction, Rachet & Clank: All 4 One (coming soon), Rachet & Clank future: a Crack in Time, and Rachet & Clank: Quest for Booty(don't worry it is a pirate video game). Oh, I almost forgot, in Secret Agent Clank. Ratchet was sent behind bars for stealing the Boltimore Gem Wing (a real wing of a who-knows-what made out of gemstones) but he didn't. It was a double-ganger, strangest thing is it could not be another Lombaxe because Ratchet's the only Lombaxe that has a space ship. Oh yeah, I never told you what a Lombaxe looks like, they a lynx's face, a human's arms, legs and, hands, torso, a lion's tail, and a mallard duck's feet. They also feature long, pointy-ears.

April 25, 2011 Information about Dinosaurs

There are two major groups of dinosaurs that can be divided into the more famous seven groups of dinosaurs. Saurischia ("lizard-hipped", not really lizard-like but close enough)
* Theropods (two-legged meat-eaters, and birds)
* Sauropodomorphs (Two and four-legged plant-eaters with long necks)

Ornithischia ("bird-hipped", not really bird-like but close enough)
* Ornithopods (two-legged plant-eaters)
* Stegosaurs (plated dinosaurs)
* Ankylosaurs (armored dinosaurs)
* Pachycephalosaurs (dome-headed dinosaurs)
* Ceratopsians (horned dinosaurs) 

The word dinosaur comes from the ancient Greek words deinos ("fearfully great", as in awe-inspiring) and sauros (a lizard). The name was invented in 1842 by Richard Owen, who knew they were not lizards, but thought that they may have been derived from them. Owen used the term deinos as a superlative. It was sometimes interpreted as "terrible" in the sense of "inspiring terror". Unfortunately, in more recent decades, this word has come to mean "bad" or "awful", a sense Owen never intended.
Dinosaurs lived on every continent, including Antarctica. This does not mean that dinosaurs lived in polar wastelands. During the time of the dinosaurs, the world was much warmer, and Antarctica had forests. Dinosaurs also lived in many different Mesozoic environments, including deserts, forests, and coastal swamps.

The dinosaurs from the Mesozoic Era lived from 230 to 65 million years ago, from the Late Triassic Period through the Late Cretaceous Period. The dinosaurs from the Cenozoic Era (most birds, which are a subgroup of theropod dinosaurs) lived from 65 million years ago to today.

If you find what you think is a dinosaur bone, this is what you should do.
Leave it where it is, even though it's tempting to take it home. Instead, take a picture of it, mark its location on a map, and tell someone at a natural history museum. They will use tools that allow the fragile fossil to be safely collected.

 If your wondering "what are the best sources for info on dinosaurs" then here they are.
The library (first and foremost!), followed by natural history museums (second), then the internet, and finally (and certainly last) TV programs.

There's  over 1000 Mesozoic (non-bird) dinosaurs have been given scientific names since 1824 when the first dinosaur was named. About half of all the dinosaurs named may not be valid because they were given names based on bits and pieces that do not stand up under modern scientific tests. Nonetheless, it has been estimated that fewer than 10% of all the dinosaurs that actually existed have been found. This is because the fossil record is not complete, and many rocks from the Mesozoic Era are still buried where we cannot get to them. In addition, many dinosaurs must have lived in environments where fossils did not form, so we have no record of them at all.

If  your wondering "why dinosaurs were so big" these are the answers.
There are several reasons: Size is the best defense. Dinosaurs, like several groups of reptiles, had indeterminate growth - which means they continued to grow throughout life, as long as they were healthy and had access to food. Dinosaurs laid eggs, and did not have to nurse their young (like mammals), so they could devote more of their biological "energy budget" to growth.
If  your wondering " Are dinosaurs extinct?" this is the answer.
Yes and no. All the dinosaur species that lived during the Mesozoic Era are extinct. And all of the "traditional" dinosaurs (meaning all the dinosaurs that aren't birds) are extinct. Seven of the eight major groups of dinosaurs are extinct, leaving only the theropod dinosaurs (see above). One of 40+ subgroups of theropod dinosaurs evolved into birds, so that one major group is not extinct. You can say that dinosaurs are 7/8 extinct!

My favoite dinosaur - the Spinosaurus.

Special thanks to Smithsonian for the info!

April 21, 2011 NINJAGO

   On NINJAGO, there are four magic weapons; the Scythe of Quakes, the Nun-Chucks of Lightning, the Sword of Fire, and the Shurikins of Ice.   These weapons are powerful alone, but if  brought together something BIG will happen.  There's also dragons in NINJAGO.  Also in NINJAGO, there's talking skeletons.   The main good dudes are; Kai, Master of Fire, it burns right in him (determination), Cole, Master of Earth, solid as stone, Jay, Master of Lightning, swift as thunder, and Zane, Master of Ice, and seer with 6th sense.  Kai relies on his devastating attack power in combat. Cole' s the opposite, his battle strategy is mostly defense. Zane' s all about stealth, he waits and 5 seconds later, he wipes you out like a blizzard. Jay has the most unique fighting style, he makes you all dizzy and weak by running around in circles and before you know it, he has you tied to a wall. NINJAGO is from the creators of LEGO..............otherwise known as the LEGO group.

April 18, 2011

I am new to this blogging stuff. I am going to start by telling you some things about me.

   My favorite video game(s) is/are Super Mario Galaxy 2, Super Smash Bro. Brawl, Rango, Sonic: Unleashed, and InfiZimals. By the way, there' s a NEW InfiZimals game called InfiZimals: Shadow Zone. Any who, why I like those games? Here's why,  I like Super Mario Galaxy 2 because it takes place in <pause for effect> OUTER SPACE!!! I like S. S. B. B. (Super Smash Bro. Brawl) for 2 reasons; you can cause explosions in the game, and with the Smart Bomb (from Star Fox) you can cause EVEN BIGGER EXPLOSIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!! oh, and because of interactive stages as well as awesome characters.

My favorite cartoons are Adventure Time, Angry Beavers, and finally Regular Show - Anything But.

I enjoy playing video games and watching TV. I love to draw what ever comes to my mind.

Until tomorrow.......
