I put on my killer clown mask that I was going to use for the talent show and crept up the stairs to our cabin. I ran up to our cabin and pressed my ear to the door to make sure my cabin mates were in there. They were. I slowly opened the door and turned off the lights so it was pitch black. Then, as Byron went to turn on the light, I silently ran up right next to Stav, and as soon as Byron turned on the light, I yelled “RAAAAAAAAH!” and gave him the scare of his life.
This video was about two families that were put to the test to see what they would do in a natural disaster. One family was tested to see what they would do in a bushfire. The other was tested to see what they would do in a cyclone. They both didn’t really do the best thing, but they still did okay. Keeping a clear head when you’re under stress isn’t easy. Your brain’s designed to work differently when you feel fear. You stop focusing on details or listening to instructions. Did they actually burn their kitchen down? Why would they go to the bathroom? I reckon they would act differently if it was a real life situation.
She had saved up, for years and years, and purchased a pokemon pack, which cost $6.50. You could perhaps say she was poor, which she probably was. She took a deep breath and peeled the foil off the back. Without seeing any of the cards, she took the cards out of the packet and put them face down into her hand. She put the four cards from the back to the front, and slowly turned the ten cards around. She got… bad card, bad card, bad card, bad card, bad card, okay card, good card, bad card, bad card, and…
“OH MY GOD! THE PIKACHU ILLUSTRATOR CARD! IT’S WORTH 100,000 DOLLARS! I’M RICH!”
She screamed. She was so happy, however, she couldn’t believe what she had just done.
What have I done? I’ve created the worst monster in the history of the world! The pink flower love-heart daffodil princess monster! I know it doesn’t sound very mean or menacing, but it is! It sprinkles fairy dust on you which turns you inside out! It’s huge, and it only has one big, slimy, green tentacle that comes out from his mouth! And now it’s taking over the world! Every time it eats something, by pulling it into it’s mouth with it’s horrible tentacle, it gets even bigger and bigger! Now it’s coming for me! Noooooooooooooooo……………….
Whew! What a nightmare!
This video was about the Cape Town Water Crisis. A huge drought that has been going on for a couple of years is happening right now in Cape Town in South Africa. They are only allowed 50 litres of water a day, which isn’t much. If they hit June the 4th, which they are calling day zero, all of the taps will be turned off, and they must go to certain places guarded by security to get a daily ration of just 25 litres. Why can’t they just travel to another country and get water? Why can’t they just move to another country that has water? What will happen after day zero? Even though 50 litres sounds like a lot, it’s actually not much for 1 day.
This story was about a crack in Africa that has been proven to mean that Africa is splitting in half. The African continent is splitting up. Geologists believe than in millions of years the African continent will have been fully split up. It was first exposed after a flood in Kenya, where there is the huge rip (the crack). The great rift splits Africa into two plates. Africa is still splitting apart, even as we speak. Will Africa be two separate continents after it has split up? Will other countries start splitting up as well? The continents did actually use to be one big piece, and countries are still splitting up even now.

Two green balls. They are spiky, big and… horrible. They cast shadows over the land. Hundreds of metres tall, they crush cars and flatten buses as they roll down the hill. So far everything we’ve done to try to stop them hasn’t worked… and they are heading towards the nuclear power plant, which will just make them bigger. Soon they will get so big they will crush the earth, and destroy every living thing on it, and therefore causing… the apocalypse. Now I say goodbye, because the two big spiky balls are about to crush meeeee……
This video was about scientists who are making lab grown meat. Australia rates in the top 10 countries in the world for the amount of meat we eat. It takes more than 15,00 litres of water to get a single kilogram of beef (because you need to give the cow water to drink). Also, people like the taste of meat but don’t like killing animals, so scientists are making lab grown meat, though some people think that it shouldn’t be called meat because it’s not from an animal, and want to make a law to ban it. The first lab grown meat took $400,000 to make, but since then companies have started investing and the prices have dropped. Does the meat taste the same? Will they be able to make substitutes for other things, like donuts, potatoes, chicken and other food? In the future they will probably have mastered the substitute meat and be working on other substitute food.
Today we had a cyber safety webinar. We listened to a man talking about cyber safety stuff, wrote down some notes and chatted on the website. Even though I was at a music lesson for most of it, here are some of the notes I took:
A lot of kids get targeted with winning free iPhones, which is spam! To protect computers and phones, have strong passwords, have a firewall, turn off GPS tracking, don’t use your real full name. Some kids think that sharing passwords is a sign of trust, but don’t do it! About 12% of kids in grade 3-6 don’t notice the spam and try to win stuff. The ways you can login to phones are fingerprints, eyes or your face and soon they will do heartbeat because everyone has a different heartbeat. Spammers ask for photos of your face, eyes and fingers so that they can log into your stuff.
Stupid ps4! Geez, technology these days! Back in the old days, in the 1960’s, there was no such thing as “ps4″or “Xbox”! We had to play video games with Nintendo Gameboys, with classics like pacman and frogger! Now my son wants me to install a ps4 for him, whatever that is! I bought one from the shops the other day, and guess how much it was? 350 dollars! Apparently on the box it says it’s easy to install, and all you need to do is to connect it to the internet, but I can’t even understand the instructions! Technology these days!
