mizal, The Grandmaster Procrastinator
A puzzling math and logic game I made just to put some of the scripting practice I've been doing to use. Have fun and please let me know if you encounter any bugs.
Should be solvable by middle schoolers, or those with same basic level of intelligence as a middle schooler.
There are five epilogues, but some may be difficult to discover. Note that actions have consequences, but not always immediate ones. (And if you just need an End Game link, go play around with the probe.)
In addition to the scientific explanations, there's a small story dramatizing it all.
Hopefully young readers will find this fun as well as educational. :)
(Might not be the greatest story ever written, but consider this: it got me 200 points.)
Written in six hours, for no other reason than to avoid consignment to the SHAME pit after my other Romance contest entry didn't want to cooperate.
A tale told in verse. A text from your sister requesting a pick up from a party leads to a night of strangeness.
Inspired by Bucky's ballad contest. Though...I wouldn't call this a ballad. I'm not sure what I'd call it, actually, other than exceedingly stupid, and fun to write.
(Don't pay any attention to the scores, they're just for me to track which endings reviewers get.)
THE PURITY AND INTENSITY OF MY HATE IS LIKE A THOUSAND MERCILESS, UNQUENCHABLE SUNS.
AND YET, I ONLY NEED ONE...
A fairy tale adventure.
The truth is I needed to publish something before the end of the year and there is CLEARLY a burning need for wolf stories in the psyche of children using the internet. But then they write them badly, or make their wolves behave like clans of cats. So here is a simple straightfoward story of a young wolf leaving his pack in search of a better life. Maybe no one will ever feel the need to write another one now, or if nothing else maybe this will give them ideas for how to do it in slightly more minimum-standards-meeting ways.
Final conclusion however is that writing about some dumb animal with no agency is not something I'd recommend.
(DO NOT READ if you're at all easily offended or lacking in a sense of humor. There's nothing graphic at all in here, but seriously, I still cannot stress it enough, this story is not for you.)
Dedicated to the good people of COG.

Anyway, they're working on recovering it now. But apparently there's been four others over the last few years and defense systems are not detecting them, that may be what they're really testing.
And to be clear, they are quite large.
Providing new insight on the size of Chinese surveillance spy balloon, VanHerck said their assessment was that the actual balloon was "up to 200 feet tall," while he described the payload "as a jet airliner type of size, maybe a regional jet," and said it probably "weigh in excess of a couple thousand pounds."

In recent days, we spent a lot, like a lot to track and then shoot down a Chinese spy balloon with a $400k missile from a $400 million dollar jet. (Nobody cared about the balloon in South America and I have no idea what China was trying to do with that that they couldn't have just used a satellite for instead. Maybe betaband has some kind of slobbery dick-sucking explanation for this one.)
Last night, God decided to remove Turkey from the map.
The earthquakes are the biggest news obviously and I'm guessing will be the main thing discussed. The aftershocks plus the entirely separate massive earthquake in the hours after the first have been absolutely brutal in a historically unprecedented kind of way. But worth noting also is that in a couple of weeks Russia will have spent a year invading Ukraine, an action that they had expected to take a couple of weeks.
Have I missed anything? If not just give it a month, I'm sure there'll be more.
