Minds are weird. By Alec

This is a post about how your mind can play tricks on you every once in a while. Read this post to understand what I’m talking about.

Exhibit .1

Quickly read the following sentence.

If

you had

six apples and the

the president ate them,

then you would have none.

Most people read the sentence like “If you had six apples and the president ate them them, then you would have none.” but it actually reads “If you had six apples and>the the<president ate them, then you would have none.” if you read it carefully it has two of the word “the” in it. many people already know this one but I did it anyways.

   Exhibit .2

This one needs you to say the colors and not the words as fast as you can. Sounds easy right? Give it a go.

 RED BLUE PURPLE GREEN RED YELLOW PURPLE YELLOW ORANGE GREEN RED BLUE PINK YELLOW ORANGE PINK RED GREEN BLUE ORANGE PURPLE YELLOW BLUE GREEN GREEN PINK BLACK ORANGE RED BLUE RED

Not so easy is it. 🙂

Exhibit .3

Thes one is qite inntresting. As you cen see moset of theese worrds arre misspelt but sttill reedabale, studdyes sey if the firrst and lasst letor of the wurd are sttil the seme than it becombs reccognisible.

Tell me if you can or can’t read it in the comments.

If you enjoyed then comment your favorite “exhibit” and say which one surprised you the most.

😃😎😛😁

Captain America

Hi everyone I think it’s time to do another superhero post. Today it’s going to be about the man out of time CAPTAIN AMERICA!

Shield.

One of caps’ most iconic traits, his shield made out of a made up material called Vibranium. Vibranium is virtually indestructible because it absorbs all vibrations from the impact 0f something hitting it and when it is thrown it bounces off objects effortlessly.

Strength.

Thanks to the super solder serum(or S.S.S)he was injected with in WWII he got an array of super-human attributes including increased strength to help him get out of sticky situations.

Speed.

S.S.S also gave him enhanced speed. Usain Bolt’s top speed is 27.44,mph cap can run at about 60,mph(around the speed of a cheetah). That is unbelievably fast for a human being!

 

 Agility.

Cap is able to doge and leap over obstacles and projectiles with ease. He is in the top ten most agile MARVEL characters!

Durability.

Cap is extremely durable, surviving explosions and hits from people like The Hulk where most men would die.

Strategy.

Cap is a master strategist, thinking and planning before executing.(I’m unsure if this is because of the S.S.S or not, put what you think in the comments.)

Life Lessons

Worthiness.

Thor, one of Cap’s friends holds the mighty hammer Mjolnir has the power to control the storm at will, will make the wielder fly and many more. Of course this would need restraints so only people who are worthy of holding it can lift the hammer of Thor! Cap can hold it but only with adrenaline in his system.

Friends.

(I wont go as in depth as the Spider-Man post.)

Cap is friends with many people and heroes like The Avengers, Spider-Man/Peter Parker, Winter Solder/Bucky Barnes, Peggy Carter, Agent 13/Sharon Carter, Falcon/Sam Wilson, Ant-Man/Scott Lang, Bat-Man/Bruce Wane and many more!

Spider-Man by Alec

Hi everyone I thought I could just do a quick few things about the amazing, the spectacular,the supirior the one and only SPIDER-MAN!

Webs.

He has web shooters which have compressed “webs”. When he pushes a button on his hand it shoots the “webs” with them he can stick, mold, seal, tie,pull and much more to people and objects.

Look out! Here comes the Spidersquid!

Agility.

Spider-man has incredible agility and flexibility which he can use to traverse the roof-tops and obscure locations.

He can also use this ability to help him in combat or dodging projectiles.

Spider Sense.

Spider-man has spider sense which allows him to know when there is danger nearby.

He feels a tingling in his head (usually represented by cartoon lightning bolts around his head), the closer the danger the stronger the feeling.

Somethings can override the spider sense like the venom symbiote which it doesn’t see it as a threat.

Oh, I see, or Maybe Not!

Wall Crawling.

One of his most recognisable and confusing abilities is the power to crawl on walls almost effortlessly.

It is a debate on how he sticks and how he sticks through his suit. It is said that hairs grow out of his finger-tips but that doesn’t make much sense. It is still a mystery to this day!

Super Strength.

Surprisingly spider-man has super strength! He can lift cars and things many people cant lift. He can lift  over 10 tons!

Dr Karl Kruszelniki’s talk by Alec

Hi guys here are some things I found interesting about Dr Karl (Kruszeliniki). Including some added info.

He spoke about how an Australian discovered Wi-Fi when trying to discover more about black holes by creating a machine that would find black holes without interference. This begins back in 1974, when Stephen Hawking theorized that under certain conditions, small black holes might “evaporate”  and at the same time make radio signals. These theorized  black holes were about the mass of Mount Everest, and smaller than an atom. Soon after, the physicist and engineer John O’Sullivan tried to find these signals and discovered Wi-Fi.

In the talk he spoke about devices designed to remove CO2 from the atmosphere and with 25,000,000 of them we could remove it from the atmosphere. People have manged to cerate a bacteria that feed on CO2 instead of it’s natural sugars. They have also made artificial trees.

I really liked hearing about him talking about the black-bird jet which could go at 1 km per second and go over 1,000 feet! For almost 40 years it had the official speed record of 2,193.13 mph the run was done by a broken jet! Each of the Pratt and Whitney J58 jets have 34,000 pounds of thrust!

He also spoke about the plane route times  and how different regions of America had different planes go at different times. Also at certain times it is colder because the sheer amount of planes bounces most of the suns rays away. I wasn’t able to figure out if the planes long term made more global warming with most of the rays  bouncing back from the CO2 or stopped it by bouncing it away?

Hope you liked this blog about Dr Karl’s speech (and some extra info)! 🙂
