CP Idea 1....................
John had a view across a vast dry savanna grassland, with a broad river coursing through the center. On either side of the river, animals grazed and browsed. In the south, there was a herd of perhaps eighty creatures that had the body and size of humpless camels, with tapir-like heads, grazing on tall elephant grass with their short trunks.
Nearby, Josh saw eight knuckle-walking creatures with horse-like heads by the river; they drank and lifted their heads, grunting with satisfaction. Directly ahead, they saw a lone Uintatherium browsing on a large scrub bush, with it's canine-like tusks hooking onto twigs and branches, with it's elephantine tail wagging side to side. The long-horned bison herd the group saw earlier, moved slowly past the Uiantatherium, who paid no attention to them. And to the west, a couple of Indricotheres stood by, browsing on a tall single tree on the plain.
It was a tranquil scene......
but it was a scene from a
On the Idea of Resurrecting Extinct Species“On the idea of Resurrecting Species: Smilodon fatalis Introduced to Catalina Island (CA) for the Predation on Bison bison”
When we hear about the idea of resurrecting extinct species, we tend to think of ethic issues and dilemmas that science-fiction books and movies depict. The most popular of these is “Jurassic Park”, the novel by Michael Crichton and the movie by Steven Spielberg. Some of these questions asked include “Should we do it?”, “Are we playing God?”, “Is it the right thing to do?”, “Would anything we bring back cause any environmental issues?” etc. Additionally, we would respond to the idea of cloning extinct species as impossible since most scientists claim that ancient DNA is mostly degraded and would not be viable for biological functions. This was true initially, but in the last few years, remarkable breakthroughs have been achieved in science, making the possibility of resurrecting extinct specie
BA moment idea 1*hero* threw his hostage to the side of a car and grabbed him by the collar.
His hostage looks at *hero* and says "Please...don't kill me!"
*hero* brought his hostage close to his own face and said "Oh, you'll be begging for death when I'm thru with you!"
"Please....I..I just following orders!"
*hero*'s eyes grew wide and he asked "What are you talking about?"
His hostage looks away and says "Nothing, I said too much."
*hero* got his hostage to look at his raging eyes and said "No, you didn't said enough."
*hero* dragged his hostage to the edge of a nearby cliff, got the hostage's legs tied up to a long piece of rope, looks at the hostage, and says "Tell what I need to know or you're gonna have a permanent trip."
The hostage says "No."
Suddenly after that, *hero* pushes the hostage over and the hostage falls down screaming.
After a couple of yards, *hero* grabs the rope (stopping the hostage's falling) and pulls him up.
As this was happening, the hostage says "Okay okay, I'll ta-"

Larry, Jody, and Rosalita exit Chang's store and approach Tyler's jeep.
When they approached the jeep, Jody asks "Larry said that you have something particular?"
Tyler replied "Well, yeah. It ain't a body, but it is strange."
He then points to the back of his jeep and the girls see the "giant hairball".
Rosalita mumbled something in spanish and asked "What is this?"
"Don't know, but there were some bones in it, plus this."
Tyler then handed Rosalita a small object. Rosalita grabs it and sees that its an ear tag for cattle. She looks closely and says "Wait, this is the ear tag of the yearling that disappeared yesterday!"
After a little bit of silence, Jody broke it by asking "So, do we report it to Twitchell?"
"I don't think that he'll take it seriously." Rosalita answered.
"She's right, he'll only take it seriously if it was a human body or something like that." Tyler agreed.
"But what if this is another mixmastered cr

In Chang's Store, Rosalita Sanchez enters the store, completely frustrated about something.
"Jody, can you get me a Graboid cappuccino?" Rosalita asked rather harshly, right before she sat down on a chair.
Jody Chang noticed this and said "Okay."
As she makes the cappuccino, she asks Rosalita "Are you okay?"
After giving out an exhausted sigh, Rosalita replied "No, not exactly."
Jody finished the cappuccino, gives it to Rosalita, and asks "Is it cattle related?"
Rosalita nodded, took a sip, and replied "Ci, one of our yearlings has vanished again."
"Another one? How many have disappeared now?"
"About 5 cattle have been missing for the last week. We've looked for the last one all night and at 5 this morning."
"Could it be El Blanco."
After taking a couple gulps from her cappuccino, Rosalita shook her head and answered "No, but thats the weird thing."
Confused, Jody asks "What do you mean?"
"The places were they just kept disappearing in places that E

==September 22, 8:37 a.m.==
It was a pristine morning, with a few clouds in the air, here and there.
Tyler Reed was driving up a hill to check out on the geo-phones, for their weekly maintenance.
Usually, Burt Gummer would be the one to do that. But he is gone from the valley for some "Anti-social, para-military, paranoid" talk in New Mexico. While he is gone, Tyler is the one who usually checks up on them.
Tyler was not happy about this. It was a Sunday and since he does not do his tours on Sundays, he usually plans to sleep in on days like this and with El Blanco not showing up for his tours for the last couple days, he has a pretty good reason to be grouchy.
"Man, Burt." Tyler grumbled to himself "While you're off going your talks, I have to be the one who takes care of your toys."
Then, Tyler makes it to the geo-phone, which is on top of the hill. But as he parks his jeep and opens his door, he watches here he steps. He's not worried about El Blanco, the geo-phones seem to be
You Are My Zing Pt. 1
"Oh, it comes with an accessory."
When Dracula turned the backpack around Mavis sees that wearing the backpack is her first and "zing", Jonathan.
Confused, she says "You?"
Then, Jonathan replied "You."
Unsure, Mavis asks "Why are you back?"
After Jonathan put his legs down and Dracula let him go, he walked up to Mavis, looked into her eyes, and answered "Because you're my zing, Mavis."
Mavis, surprised to hear Johnny say, replied "I'm your zing? But . . . you told me you hate monsters."
Remembering that unpleasant moment, Jonathan replied "Yeah, well . . . I was afraid your dad was gonna suck all the blood from my body if I didn't say that."
Dracula popped up suddenly and argued "I wouldn't have haha eh . . . no, he's right, I would've done that."
About to be mad, Mavis went "Dad!"
Dracula shrugged and said "Haha, I was wrong."
After that, Dracula gave Mavis something she told she threw away: an old postcard of Hawaii, where her mom and dad first met.
The Cold Cash ConundrumThe Cold Cash Conundrum, by David Nicholas...
This idea of cash
Trivial on the surface
Yet powers unmatched
Its uses; countless
From the wise to the foolish
Here’s my short sample
Help, harass or be
Spent, saved, invested, gambled
To shape one’s visions
To rule, to rise, to evolve
To work past our binds
A great mystery
How Earth’s under lock and key
By small plastic notes
haar stoutelingsshe asks me how much i love her;
i answer, "i love you lots!"
she asks me how much i like her,
and i answer, "some."
What is life to us?
A time limit or a chance?
That is the question.
Is time relative?
To our past or to our future?
To find out, we must.
Is your life a race?
One to win or one to lose?
Do your best and see.
What is one's being?
To be this or being that?
That is your journey.
Should you be married?
For survival or for love?
Such a hard question.
Thou shall reach the sky?
Thou shall dig into the Earth?
Let Nature decide.
