A whole bunch of stuff!

No podcast, yet, need to get a new file sharing software.

But I did get a whole bunch of stuff ready for one big post!

Lets start off on last Thursday. Nathan, (My practical brother, when we talk) brought me to something called BizTown. It's really boring, you do these economic things each week on Thursday, and after 6, you go to a amazing place. The economics are really fun though, and BizTown, is the amazing place.
Yes, you DO get to wear a suit. Because you are going to a small town, and you are the adult! Yes, it is a whole town, with a currency, run by kids. I am going for CEO of TBO. Nice ring to it. Or Verizon. Or Clear Channel. These three have something in common, they give real stuff! You pay currency to TBO for a newspaper, you buy REAL WORKING PHONES from Verizon, and you get to be on a TV show for Clear Channel! Now, I get back home, jumpy, and look inside the mailbox while in the car. "Tal," Mom says, "Do you think we missed a lot of mail?" "We must have." said me. A tornado of mail shoots out. "Bingo." There is this one package that catches my eye. But first. FLASHBACK TO DECEMBER.

SI, Sports Illustrated, sent me their kid issue. Nothing new.


SIK sent me the same issue! Except it was covered in sticky notes. The envelope that came with it had a bunch of stuff, and a dollar. They want me to vote on ALL OF THE SECTIONS AND ADS. I graded, for the first time, not all A's. I try to be nice all the time, but I really wanted that prize. They are giving out 50 T-Shirts! "Not a chance." My brain said. Our family, as you may know, has a huge losing streak. My generation and me, mostly me, broke it HARDCORE TO THE MAXIMUM EPICNESS.

Back to February!

Okay, I got the T-Shirt. YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS. I thought it was going to be a dumb football thing, but I said Baseball was my favorite sport. So I got a baseball shirt. YES.

So, last night, my dad watched this "I shouldn't be alive" show. This guy, heard this story from these guys, about this horrible boat sink they had. They had no supplies. So, as the guy was telling how to save yourself, the story went on.

Apparently, this ship of 5 people sunk. A 30 foot wave hit their ship hardcore. So, they couldn't get their life raft. They got into a inflatable dingy. Just call it a boat, it hurts my fingers to type it. So they got in, but not until this one girl got her leg cut to the bone. Big whoop. You should see my brothers at action! They had so much trouble getting in the boat. And they looked underwater. Sharks. About a literal ONE WHOOPING THOUSAND. So they got on, quickly, and had no water for about 3 days. They got sores, and infections from bacteria. The captain, was very thirsty, like the rest of the crew, but he did something stupid. He drank the salt water from the water. After drinking a lot, he slowly went mad and crazy. Finally, the captain jumped in the shark infested water, and didn't want to come back in. Then, a bunch of sharks pounced on the captain. All that came out was blood.

Kids, please play Roblox* or Minecraft or just come back later.

But the captain wasn't the only one who drank. So did the skipper. The skipper, jumped in. Wouldn't come out, and decided to swim under the boat. Suddenly, the two girls and the guy, the only ones in, were bumped about a inch. Sharks were eating the skipper. And they were flying upwards into the boat. Then it stopped. The girl with the nasty cut? Died. She was barely breathing. The two were deciding on whether or not to eat her. After a day, the guy fell in. With adrenaline pumping, he managed to get back in without the help of his mate. After 5 days, the grand total, they managed to find a rescue boat. Both of them did something semi-stupid, they jumped in the water and swam full steam at the boat.

They managed to tell the story, later at land.

Do you remember the guy who lived on some supplies for 76 days at sea? Mom won't let me read about it, but the guy made a Grab Bag, that saved his life. Dad wants me to make a list:
  • Crank Flashlight
  • Crank Radio
  • Water Purifier
  • Some kind of solar charging thing
  • Fishing line and pole
  • Fishing bait
  • Lots of rope
  • Mirror, to signal
  • Gun maybe?
  • Plastic Bag
  • Lots of Tupperware.
  • Clothes and blanket. And a pillow, if it will fit.
Thats about it, Please comment if you want to add more.

Oh and, have you heard about the $35 camp I went to? Actually, it was three days ago. I missed it because I was sick. Nathan told me about it. :(
