Amelia opened her eyes, then smiled as she stretched her arms over her head. The day had finally come, the first day of school! It was her favorite day of the year, even before her birthday. She hopped out of bed and looked at her first-day-of-school outfit that was lying on her bed, then put it on. She headed into the bathroom to brush her teeth, put on her makeup, and brush her hair. Then she headed downstairs and sat down at the kitchen table to eat breakfast with her family. 10 minutes later, Amelia was standing at the bus stop, waiting for the bus that would take her to her first day as a freshman in high school. She was a bit early, so it was just her at the bus stop. Until a few minutes later, when a man wearing a trench-coat and a fedora walked up, and stood next to her. Deciding to be friendly, Amelia turned toward him and said, “Good morning!” The man turned, a grim look on his face, and instead of greeting her, he pulled out a thick piece of cloth and a large sack. Before Amelia could react, the man stuffed the cloth in her mouth, then pulled the sack over her and picked her up with it. She tried to kick and scream for someone to rescue her, but she was quickly overcome with a feeling of grogginess, and soon after that she fell unconscious, the cloth still in her mouth and her body still in the sack. Hours later, Amelia woke up, gasping for breath. She looked around, finding that she was lying on the floor in what appeared to be some sort of cell. All of a sudden, she heard footsteps outside of the cell, slowly coming closer and closer. She inched toward the back of the cell, slowing her breath and preparing herself for whoever, or whatever, was about to walk in front of her cell. The man who had originally kidnapped her at the bus stop earlier that morning entered into her line of vision, and stood in front of her cell. As soon as Amelia saw him, she jumped to her feet and put her arms up in front of her, trying to defend herself against any moves he would try to make against her. “Don’t worry, I’m not here to hurt you or anything like that. I’m actually here to talk with you. First, let me tell you where you are. This is the SATC, or the Secret Agent Training Center. What we do here is highly classified, but-,” the man was cut off by a piercing siren. The red lights that lined the hallway started to flash, and the loud siren noise continued mercilessly. Amelia knew it was her chance to escape. Temporarily stunned, the man was covering his ears, his eyes shut tight. Earlier, as the man was talking, Amelia had noticed a vent in the ceiling with a loose screw. She began to jump up and down, continuously hitting the screw with her fist until it fell out. After a few seconds, the screw fell out, and the vent cover hit the ground with a loud crashing noise. The man looked up just as Amelia grabbed the sides of the vent, and he lunged toward the cage door to unlock it and stop Amelia from escaping. He fumbled with the key until finally he unlocked it, and as the door swung open, Amelia pulled her upper half through the vent. The man ran into the cage and went for Amelia, but she pulled her legs into the vent and tumbled away from the opening, able to feel the man’s hand graze the toe of her boot as she did. Amelia blew a sigh of relief, since she knew the vent was too small for the man to get through. She started crawling along in the vent, assessing the situation as she went. After what she guessed to be about an hour of crawling through the vent, Amelia, quite literally, saw the light at the end of the tunnel. There was an opening in the vent where another cover had been removed. Amelia leaned over the opening, looking and listening to see if anyone was around. When she decided the coast was clear, she hopped to the ground and assessed her surroundings. She was in a hallway similar to the one her cage was in. She crept through the hallway, careful not to make too much noise and keep a lookout for anyone that she might cross paths with. As she approached the end of the short hallway, she heard voices coming from around the corner. She got closer and listened in on the conversation. “Did you see her anywhere? James says she escaped through the vent, but I just checked in the vent and there wasn’t anything in there,” one of the voices said. The other one replied, “Alright, well, let’s look down a couple more halls and then we can check the vents again. You take Hall 18D and I’ll take 19E, then we’ll meet at the other end.” Amelia looked up at a placard that was nailed to the wall near where she was standing. It was labelled: 19E. All of a sudden, she heard the loud footsteps of one of the voices turn the corner into her hall. He would turn the corner any second and see Amelia. Without knowing what else to do, she hopped up and grabbed two of the parallel bars that were attached to the ceiling, then hoisted the rest of herself up. As the man passed by, moving slowly, she held her breath and tried not to make a sound. The guard was almost to the end of the hallway, but Amelia’s arms were getting tired and wouldn’t be able to hold her up for much longer. She exhaled slightly, but the guard heard it and turned around, scanning the hallway with his eyes. When he finally decided that it was clear, he turned the corner and was out of Amelia’s eyesight. As quietly as she could, Amelia hopped down to the ground and let out a huge sigh of relief. She knew that she would have to move fast if she wanted to escape with her life. Over the next ten minutes, Amelia crept through hallways and open-ended rooms until she finally came to a map. She looked for the closest point of exit, and found that it was about twenty-five feet away, at the end of a hallway to her left. Amelia looked around one last time, then began to sprint toward the door. Luckily, she didn’t notice any guards lining the hallway as she ran. There was a big button on the side of the double doors that led to the outside, and Amelia pushed it. She stood in front of the doors as they opened, ready to sprint outside as soon as the doors opened all the way. Yet, instead of seeing the outside, Amelia saw another set of doors. She went to open them, but before she could, someone on the other side of the doors pulled them open. Those doors lead to the outside, so Amelia covered her eyes as she was bathed in sunlight. When her eyes finally adjusted, she looked up to see who had opened the doors. It was the man that had first captured her, and as soon as she realized this, he began to clap, very slowly. “Well, looks like you’ve made it to the end of the test, Amelia. And congratulations, you passed. In fact, you passed with flying colors,” the man said, smiling. Amelia was confused, so all she managed to say was, “How do you know my name?” The man cleared his throat, and said, “Well, let me explain all of this to you before we get into that. First of all, your life is not in any danger, and you are completely safe here. In fact, we’re the good guys. Well, technically, we train the good guys. As I told you earlier, we are the SATC, the Secret Agent Training Center. We groom our students to become some of the finest secret agents in the world, and you have to trust me when I tell you that, because we’ve done it lots of times before. Anyway, what you just went through was a test to see how well you would do as a student here. Let me tell you, you would do very, very well. Better than most of our current students, in fact. Also, we know your name because it’s our job. If we see someone who has the potential to become a student here, it is our job to learn everything about them and put them through the test, which is what I’ve just done. So now that I’ve explained all of that, I have an offer for you. If becoming a secret agent sounds interesting to you, then this is the place you need to be. You would come train here, most likely for the next few years of your life, then you would become a certified secret agent. This is an amazing, beneficial, world-saving, and well-paying job. But there are some consequences, such as that you can only see your family twice a month, and you cannot get a mainstream education, because we would teach you everything you need to know. If you choose to decline, we will have a car take you to wherever you were when I first picked you up, and you will have no memory of this ever happening. I know it’s a lot to consider, but right now, I just need to know one thing from you: are you in, or are you out?” Amelia took a deep breath, trying to process everything she had just learned. Over the next few minutes, she considered her options. Finally, she answered the man’s question, and said, “I’m in.” The man smiled, and immediately started speaking into his watch. Amelia looked out over the grass by where they were standing, knowing she wouldn’t be seeing too much of it for a while. Yet, she was ready for her new life, and she was ready to fully embrace it. Eight years later, Amelia stands in the exact same spot, thinking about that day where it had all begun. She was just 15 years old back then, and getting ready for her first day as a freshman. Now, she is the number one-ranked secret agent in the world, and not regretting the decision she made that day one bit.

The 8th year of the Syrian war http://www.winchurchill2.com/the-world/2018/03/28/the-8th-year-of-the-syrian-war/ Wed, 28 Mar 2018 10:22:41 +0000 http://www.winchurchill2.com/?p=5187

The Syrian war started in 2011 and is still raging this year. Originally a civil war where rebels protested President Bashar Assad’s rule, For years the Syrian government has sent airstrikes to the bases of the rebels. At estimations there were about 400.000 people killed and displaced half the population of Syria. And it’s only gotten worse ever since. Now the chance of anybody wandering in the streets can be killed any moment. Though most rebel bases have been blown up, there is still one in eastern Ghouta where the humanitarian pause took place which took place between Russia and a Islamic militia. This event brought respite near the northern part of Ghouta, where war was ravaging. But this respite wasn’t effective enough. Due to the insane amounts of radiation and insanitation, 1,000 people were killed and 5,000 wounded. With there being so many countries involved such as Turkey who came to Syria for their own national interests. In a way the Syrian war is a mini world war 3. It has become such a bad place that, no one has time to care about daily problems. A woman reportedly said she was raped by a police officer in the broad daylight with everyone outside, and not a single person decided to help her or heard her scream. Big powers like Russia and the European Union have joined the chaos along with America, and all the U.S. can do is help survivors. Reportedly the White Helmets and SOHR say that The Syrian government and Russia have set off airstrikes making Eastern Ghouta like a wildfire. Now that you’ve heard about the war, how did it originally start? The Syrian war started when the government had elected monarch Bashar al-Assad. He wanted Syria to stay as a Monarchy. But the men and women of Syria started protesting. From here on out The Syrian Civil war started. Multiple people were detained, tortured, and killed, which caused even more of and eruption leading to multiple states being destroyed. After these turn of events, Multiple other countries started joining, and now it’s a conflict that Syria can’t solve on it’s own.

Movie Review: Love, Simon http://www.winchurchill2.com/in-review/2018/03/28/movie-review-love-simon/ Wed, 28 Mar 2018 10:19:22 +0000 http://www.winchurchill2.com/?p=5194

Love, Simon

Love, Simon is a romantic drama released on March 16, 2018. The movie is about a seventeen year old senior named Simone Spiers who lives a normal life. He lives in a nice neighborhood, with lovely parents, a good sister, goes to a regular high school, and has normal friends, but he has one big secret: he’s gay. He hasn’t come out to anyone yet, because he’s not sure how to. Simon often likes to say “Sometimes I feel like I’m stuck on a ferris wheel. One minute I’m on top of the world, then the next I’m at rock bottom” to describe the feeling. The film was directed by Greg Berlanti and written by Becky Albertalli. The movie depicts the struggles of coming out as a teenager and normal high school drama as Simon has to figure out how to keep his secret while also juggling all his friends’ emotions as well. It covers everything from telling your parents you’re gay, to failed promposals in front of the whole school. The secret was one he thought he was struggling with all alone, until an anonymous contributor by the code name Blue submits a post to the school website admitting that he is gay. Simon, ecstatic from knowing he’s not alone, sends an email to the fake email address using the code name Jacque. Having finally found someone he can relate to, he feels on top of the world, until a classmate manages to find and screenshot his emails, and he’s right back at rock bottom. His agenda now consists of trying to figure out who Blue is, dealing with being blackmailed, and balancing out the normal drama of highschool life, but now so much more is on the line. Love, Simon is an amazing film for many reasons. It touches on struggles many teens have that many other platforms don’t, as well as being very forward thinking and including a gay main character. These diverse characters and new plotline made the movie a very refreshing thing to see in mainstream media. The movie itself is also very adorable and leaves the audience heartwarmed after watching this boy just trying his best to be accepted by the ones he loves for who he loves. It’s truly an amazing film that I recommend for everyone to go see.

Spy: Movie Review http://www.winchurchill2.com/movie-magic/2018/03/28/spy-movie-review/ Wed, 28 Mar 2018 10:10:27 +0000 http://www.winchurchill2.com/?p=5201

Spy was released on June 5, 2015 and Paul Feig, as the director, was able to make a whopping $235.7 million. This hit comedy goes along a story where CIA analyst, Susan Cooper, works a desk job helping CIA agents, especially Bradley Fine, avoid danger by talking through their earpieces. After Bradley was murdered by a Bulgarian arms dealer, Boyanov,  during his mission, Susan decides to pursue her dream of an official CIA agent and go undercover avenging Bradley and gathering more information on Boyanov. The very popular comedic actors Melissa McCarthy, Jason Statham, Rose Byrne, and Jude Law, made this film incredibly humorous and engaging/exciting to watch. Especially since McCarthy and Statham has worked together before on other comedic films, the special connection between the actors showed through the quality of the film and made it seem more natural and realistic rather than fake. And all the actors/actresses definitely seemed more natural and in their true selves since the main cast have known each other before and have also already become acquainted with Paul Feig and his style/way of his films. But even though there is an extremely talented cast with an amazing director who is known for making hit movies, some say the humor in this film have gone a little bit too far. Since this film is an action/comedic film there are plenty of action scenes that are meant to look awkward in order to be humorous but a little too much action and violence and suck out the humor and smile from the audience. And knowing Paul Feig, this film was not created for an audience of all ages. So since there is a certain limit to the audience, the movie is not as popular and engaging for everyone. But with the exception of the audience being limited, and an excess of violence, this film is still great and incredibly exciting to watch. The film can leave an audience leaning on the edge of their seats waiting to see what happens next which is why “Spy” is a fun, appealing movie to watch.

Cameron’s Trip…Continued http://www.winchurchill2.com/to-be-continued/2018/03/28/camerons-trip-continued/ Wed, 28 Mar 2018 10:06:37 +0000 http://www.winchurchill2.com/?p=5204

Cameron had been falling for what felt like hours. Finally, he saw clouds and a little bit of land below him. He hoped that whatever was down there was not hard, and would be able to catch him. The ground was getting closer and closer, so he closed his eyes and waited for the impact. He felt himself hit the floor and his eyes jolted open. He was standing in a strange city, that seemed to be abandoned.

“Hello?” he called out nervously.

No one answered. He did not know what to do first, so he just started walking towards the closest building to him. Cameron opened the door and stepped inside. He coughed because of the excessive amount of dirt and dust in the air and on the building. He looked around and saw of lot of books resting on dust covered bookcases. He walked over to one of the bookcases and picked up a book, dusting off the cover. To Kill a Mockingbird it read. He remembered reading that back in eighth grade when he was in middle school. Cameron did not know how he was going to get home. Then, he suddenly heard a loud crash and dropped his book.

“Who’s there?” he shouted, his voice shaking a little bit.

“Me” said a cloaked figure, as they emerged from the shadows.

“Who are you?” Cameron asked.

The figure removed their hood, and Cameron saw it was an exact replica of him.

“I know you’re wondering how this is possible. Let me explain,” the figure said, going to sit down on a nearby bench. Cameron’s twin told him of how he was Cameron’s twin, who had gotten thrown into this world when he was just a baby. Their parents did not want twins, as only one baby was expected, so they created this world and put Cameron’s twin (Clark) into it.

“But they must have left an opening,” Clark said, “because you somehow got here.”

Clark and Cameron continued to look for an exit as they got one, but unfortunately were never able to find one, and lived out the rest of their days in this post apocalyptic world.

What Happens After We Die http://www.winchurchill2.com/money/2018/03/28/what-happens-after-we-die/ Wed, 28 Mar 2018 10:03:48 +0000 http://www.winchurchill2.com/?p=5207

Dying is something everyone does, its something that will undeniably happen unless we become robots with brains in jars. Everyone around us is sad after our death, loved ones, friends, blah blah but what happens to us after we die, scientifically speaking?

 

How does anyone know I’m dead?

Well, your death is usually confirmed by an electroencephalogram or EEG for short which will tell you that your brain has no electrical activity anymore and nothing is happening which really puts the term “empty-headed” into perspective. Machines may keep your physical body alive longer, but your conscious is no longer there, bye bye. However, you can also have a cardiac death which means the heart has stopped working and blood is no longer circulating through your body, but this doesn’t necessarily mean you are dead dead. This is what is known as a clinical death, but your heart can be restarted with electrical impulses within the next 4-6 minutes or else you die die which is called biological death.

 

Uh I’m dead, now what?

Well, you are dead now and the first thing that happens is that your muscles relax because there are no more brain signals telling them not to. Basically, if you were holding in your lunch, that’s not happening anymore, and neither any juice you drank earlier; it’s all coming out. Coffin births can happen is a pregnant lady dies, and the baby is pushed out by bodily gases mainly coming from the abdomen. As “internal substances” are pushed out of the body, many noises occur along with this process and the body will make moans and groans along with twitches that come from muscle contractions. After this, the body soon begins to cool down because no more warm blood is flowing through it and calcium gets into the muscle cells. This is known as “rigor mortis” when you are completely stiff and cold around 3 hours after biological death. No more blood flow also causes cells to start dying and bacteria replace them and the body starts the decomposition process. The hair and nails will appear to have grown but really this is just skin recession, then the skin loosens and blisters will paint the body. Putrefaction time, bacteria and microorganisms start the chomp on the yummy carcass that was you will smell absolutely foul. Anything soft will liquefy with the exception of bones, cartilage, and hair which can happen within a month. In 10 years when buried underground, the body will be reduced to a skeleton, and in 50 years, nothing will remain, happy thoughts!

 

This is all science, how does this cost anything?

If you think any of this is cheap, you’re in for a fun surprise! A study done by Arcadia  Healthcare Solutions showed that dying in a hospital costed $33,000, and dying at home cost around $4,500, 7 times less!

 

How does it cost so much?

A viewing of the body can cost up to $450 and that’s just for the body storage. A venue including staff will set you back a $500 bucks and this is before anything else. In order for the body to be presentable and without maggots and other nasties, the body must be embalmed which is the process of stopping natural bodily decay through the use of various chemicals. The embalming charge is $700 and the body must be pampered with hair and makeup so it doesn’t look like a corpse and this is priced at $250.

 

Dying is expensive, that’s it, right?

Ha, no. That was only for a viewing so think about if you really want one. A gravestone which is a staple for a burial will cost you an arm and a leg at $2000. But that’s just the physical stone. The plot and the service that entails an opening and closing of a plot costs another $3000. Still, you will probably have to get a memorial service which costs $1500. If you want a funeral provider to speak at this service, the price tag will be $2000. Why is dying so expensive? Moving the body to the service is $300 and having a funeral coach with a hearse is priced at another $300. To organize, you’ll need guest books which will set you back around $150 and another $300 will likely be spent on flowers. Finally, a requirement is a casket and although it literally gets buried in the ground, a normal casket costs $2000, ranging up to a high-end casket for $10,000. A no shenanigans funeral will cost you a grand total of $11,000, but hey, at least it’s not your problem.

 

Cremation

A cremation will cost $1,000 without a memorial service and there are still many options, like putting ashes in an urn that costs around $100.

 

So, the takeaway…. uhhhh, is that everything about dying sucks, and it’s really expensive. So try not to die and your loved ones will stay out of debt, I guess.

 

Happy Not Dying 🙂

The Effect of the Endangered Species Act on California http://www.winchurchill2.com/living/2018/03/28/the-effect-of-the-endangered-species-act-on-california/ Wed, 28 Mar 2018 09:55:42 +0000 http://www.winchurchill2.com/?p=5210

Humans have always been and still are the biggest threats to animals living in the wild. Around the world many animals are facing different problems caused by humans such as loss of habit occupied by humans, effects of climate change caused by humans, invasive species introduced by humans, and poaching done by humans. These ongoing and continous threats broughT on by humans have been reducing the population of many animals drastically, making them some of the endangered species living in this world classified by the  the IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature). There are many animals today which are endangered and our job as humans is to help recover the number of animals that once lived. Some of the existing highly endangered species exist in the state of California and thanks to the many organizations aiding are slowly gaining back their numbers. The animals that had once been the top few endangered species are recovering thanks to the Endangered Species Act which is protecting around 1300 different species.These animals include the El Segundo Blue Butterfly, the Southern Sea Otter, the Peregrine Falcon, the Humpback Whale, the Bald Eagle and the Green Sea Turtle.

The El Segundo Blue Butterfly is only found in one common location… California. In California it only resides in either Los Angeles or Santa Barbara. Due to construction and housing, the population had gone down up to 90%. The population suddenly decreased to only about 1,000 then to 500. In 2011, the population slowly grew to 123,000 after it was enlisted as endangered. The Southern Sea Otter was a species that had once existed in their thousands. Later, fur trade had decreased their number to only around 50. The numbers os species later recovered. The peregrine falcon is a fascinating bird that has the ability to dive at tp to 200 mi per hour. The population was around 3,900 but, declined to only up to 324 being considered extinct in the East. The numbers slowly increased and there are around 3,500 individuals today. In the past, the whales population dramatically decreased due to the Whaling Industry including the Humpback Whales. However, recent efforts have pushed the numbers up. The Bald Eagle has been the first federally protected species after research found that there were only 480 nests. Later the population grew to 14,000. The Green Sea Turtle had become endangered due to overharvest in its home- the Gulf of California. They still face many threats today, their numbers have slowly increased.

All of the different species mentioned above have all been enlisted under the Endangered Species Act. This act has been able to raise the population of many endangered species and help them raise their population back. Due to this act, the many threats faced by the endangered species andcaused by humans have been greatly reduced.

Movie Review: A Wrinkle in Time http://www.winchurchill2.com/movie-review/2018/03/28/movie-review-a-wrinkle-in-time/ Wed, 28 Mar 2018 09:49:30 +0000 http://www.winchurchill2.com/?p=5212

     Disney’s A Wrinkle in Time is an adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle’s novel of the same name. Directed by Ava DuVernay and starring Storm Reid, Chris Pine, Oprah Winfrey, Mindy Kaling, and Reese Witherspoon, the film makes for an entertaining experience with a cast that includes a generous amount of very famous actors. This is probably one of the reasons that the movie was so eagerly awaited (not to mention the incredible story it is based on), however in my opinion the movie could have been done better. Granted, the visuals were absolutely stunning and a lot of scenes had psychedelic animation and fantastic costumes/makeup that really enhanced the film, however I feel that the plot was a bit too rushed (one can imagine that the film cut out significant parts of the book), certain acting moments a bit forced, and some of the attempts at humor remained just attempts. Despite all of this, the film upheld many positive themes that put emphasis on many possible morals of the story, encouraging viewers to believe in themselves and work through the darkness. It’s good that they chose to display those concepts in the film, as since the target audience is children, it is important to use these opportunities to instill positive messages in young minds. The movie also had a fairly good soundtrack, but their visuals truly stood out most of all, as the special effects were in my opinion the most memorable part of the film, bringing everything to life in a vivid, magical way (think lots of light, color, and elaborate changing costumes). Overall, the film told the story well despite several questionable adaptations, and I recommend seeing it nonetheless. If you love the story, the actors, inspiring messages, or even just special effects, chances are you will find something charming about the movie. A Wrinkle in Time is truly an entertaining adaptation of the novel that offers beautiful visuals, talented actors, and uplifting messages, making it a relatively well-made film.

ARK: Survival Evolved http://www.winchurchill2.com/new/2018/03/28/ark-survival-evolved/ Wed, 28 Mar 2018 09:47:11 +0000 http://www.winchurchill2.com/?p=5214

ARK: Survival Evolved is a survival game like no other. This game was made by Studio Wildcard, Instinct Games, Efecto Studios, and Virtual Basement and it costs somewhere from $30 to $60 depending on when you are looking at it. In the game, you try to survive in a world full of dinosaurs. You can even tame these dinosaurs to help you survive. In this game, you start off with nothing and try to survive against dinosaurs that attack you while you collect resources like wood, thatch, stone, and berries to survive. In this game, you can even go online where other people can raid your bases and steal your stuff. The game is centered around a giant map in which you can survive however you want to. You level up by breaking things, killing things, and taming things and after you level up, you receive these things called engram point which you spend to get new blueprints to make or build new things, you can get weapons(guns, spears, etc.), walls, floors, and items(for example the waterskin which you use to carry around water when you travel because you need water to survive in this game). This game has some important things to keep in mind as you are playing like health, food, water, stamina, weight, and heat and if you die you lose all of your items and return to your last spawn point, which could either be the last bed you slept in or, if you have no beds, one of the default spawn points. The way you tame things early on is you punch them to knock them out and feed them what they like if the thing you knocked out is a carnivore then feed it meat and if it is a herbivore then feed it berries. When taming, you also have to keep the animal knocked out so you have to feed it narcoberries, later in the game you can get tranquilizer arrows and darts for your bows and guns and narcotics to take place of the narcoberries. After you have tamed some things and you have leveled up enough you can make and equip saddles to dinosaurs, some dinosaurs can fly like the Argentavis, some can jump high like, some have a lot of weight that they can handle so you can put more of your stuff with them, and some have very high attack damage and speed. When you are playing online you can make tribes with your friends and then you can share dinosaurs. Dinosaurs that you have tamed can defend your base when somebody is trying to raid it and can defend you when another dinosaur is trying to attack you. The ore that you use to make all of the more advanced things like metal walls and guns is just called metal and you have to use a refining forge to make ore into metal bars. There are also multiple bosses in this game called the Broodmother Lysrix, Dragon, Manticore, Megapithecus, Overseer, Rockwell, and the Rockwell Tentacle. The creators of this game are always releasing new DLCs(downloadable content) their newest one being ARK: Aberration featuring a world and dinosaurs after a radioactive apocalypse. Although the popularity of ARK has gone down over time, it is still a great and fun game.

5 Again http://www.winchurchill2.com/stories/2018/03/28/5-again/ Wed, 28 Mar 2018 09:42:17 +0000 http://www.winchurchill2.com/?p=5217

 

When John was five years-old all he wanted to do was become an astronaut, the kid loved everything to do with astronomy and loved to explore. When John was in grade school, he was always able to answer any questions about space. In fact, many student often asked him questions about their astronomy homework. In subjects like English and history, John often comprehended failure, for he would mostly fail in these subjects. John had a growing passion for space travel and with the news of the Space X Falcon nine launch he realized that his dream of being the first to take steps on the red planet was finally feasible. In high school, John took an elective class about astronomy and there he met some friends that he would stand by with for life. In college he majored in astronomy and made great friends with the professor. Professor Mitchell and John began to work together and created their own shuttle. From there, John and Professor Mitchell set out to find Elon Musk, the only man that would believe in their idea, and could fund everything. They left to Bel Air, California with about twenty dollars in their pockets and set out on an adventure to make their dreams possible. When they arrived in Bel Air they met Will Smith at the airport and they asked Will where they could find Elon Musk. Will looked at them and pointed up. From the ground, John and Professor Mitchell saw through a windowed off roof. The two could see a figure overhead sitting in a flying car that called out “Yo Will come on up and let’s get out of this place.” After that, Will grabbed the two and jumped up and through the roof and set the two inside of the flying car. Will introduced Elon Musk to them and they immediately began to recite their plans to create a stronger, more powerful Falcon heavy. Elon loved the idea and he decided to immediately hire the two as his head engineers. The two went back to their hotel and decided to call it a day. The second that his head hit the pillow he was out like a light and he began to dream of when he young and of when he was five years old.
